All that said, there have been cases of "under the table" renting of players for half seasons. I can think of a number of examples of trades where the player was to become a free agent and re-signed with the original team after the end of the season.
Nonetheless, the way people exaggerate the importance of pitch counts and innings for pitchers anymore, I am surprised to see this thread before a thread suggesting that Sale be shut down for the year. Some here were happy to see Crain injured in spring training because it meant he wouldn't be pitching for Team Canada before the season.

Or maybe I missed the thread suggesting Sale be shut down for the year.
