No the other team pays his full salary. You only pay if A) nobody claims him and he is bought out or B) nobody claims him and he is sent to the minors. If another team claims him then they are responsible for his entire salary.
I think Former Yotes GM is fine right now because he didn't send sutter down to the minors, he just cleared waivers. Same with kruze and anisimov. If they want to send them down later on they will have to be waived
