The Winnipeg Goldeyes placed outfielder Dan Barbero on the inactive list and left-handed pitcher Matt Fairel on irrevocable waivers Tuesday.
Barbero can be activated at any time, while the 13 other American Association teams have 24 hours to claim Fairel or he will be released. Fairel was acquired from the New Jersey Jackels of the Can-Am League yesterday, but has chosen not to report to the Goldeyes.
Winnipeg will start the 2012 season with 22 players, evenly split with 11 pitchers and 11 position players.
