I’m scratching my head wondering why Williams is still on the roster at all. I thought Marcano had more to offer and he’s been gone for weeks now.

My thought at the time was that the Bucs thought Marcano was safe for awhile because of his injury. However, they may have wanted to keep him off the roster and gamble if any one would take him in Rule 5 draft.

You could very well be right. But my point is that Williams has no future here, whether Marcano is here or not. If BC thought Marcano to be the better player of the two, he could've released Williams and then resigned him a couple of weeks later to a minor league contract, if he still wanted him, because he likely would've gone unclaimed. Then he'd still have both players. Now Marcano's gone and Williams is still here, which makes little sense.
