Where's Waldis? Probably not in the Giants farm system come Friday.

MLBTR.com is reporting that long-time Giants pitching prospect Waldis Joaquin has the option to opt out of his contract with the Giants by Friday if he is not put back on the 40-man roster by then.  Since I don't see that there's any way that the Giants will add him to the 40-man, and since he's likely to be buried on the bullpen depth chart for the foreseeable future, I think Waldis will opt to become a free agent and hook up with a team that needs bullpen help and is willing to take a chance on his mid-90s heater.

Money quote:

Waldis Joaquin, a right-hander who pitched for the Giants in 2009-10, can opt out of his contract with San Francisco this Friday if the Giants don't put him back on their 40-man roster, MLBTR has learned.
