Saito Outrighted, Off 40-Man Roster

[Or not. See below.]

Cafardo, Globe:
Takashi Saito has been outrighted by the Red Sox off of their 40-man roster. This is likely a prelude to the team not picking up the 2010 option on his contract.
However, WEEI's Alex Speier reports that:
there has been no transaction to this point involving Red Sox reliever Takashi Saito ... he has not been assigned outright to Pawtucket for the purposes of removing him from the 40-man roster ...
Speier says the team holds a $6 million option (the amount of salary + incentives earned from 2009 is the club option total for 2010).
