Said it in a different thread, but I think it's worth repeating, so I will. I think that should anyone be signed, it will be with a non-guaranteed contract, so that he can be cut when needed and only owed the pro-rated portion of his salary. If TL isn't ready to go and Al's Covid recovery is extended, we could see a center for a week or two, for example. The spot would generally be kept empty except to fortify depth if multiple players are out at the same position. Either at the deadline via trade (be it 2-for-1, picking up someone with a TPE, etc.), or after the deadline during buyout season, the spot will be more permanently filled.
