Trade Waivers & Aug. 31 'Deadline'

Definition

Before 2019, players could be traded following the Trade Deadline (prior to the 2022-2026 collective bargaining agreement, the Trade Deadline almost always fell on July 31 at 4 p.m. ET, but the Commissioner's Office now has the flexibility to set the Trade Deadline on a date between July 28 and Aug. 3) if they first cleared revocable trade waivers.

Although trades could still be completed after Aug. 31 as well, players acquired after that date were ineligible to be added to the postseason roster by their new teams. As a result, the last day in August was sometimes colloquially referred to as the "waiver Trade Deadline."

Under the old system, the player's original club had three options when a trade waiver claim was placed: It could either work out a standard trade with the claiming club (the two sides had 48 hours to agree to a deal), allow the player -- and all money remaining on his contract -- to go to the claiming club with no return or pull the player back off waivers. A player who was pulled back off waivers could be placed on trade waivers a second time, but at that point the waiver request became irrevocable. If a player passed through waivers unclaimed, he could then be traded to any club, free of restriction (though all 40-man-roster players in the trade had to clear waivers before being dealt).

As of 2019, players may still be placed and claimed on outright waivers after the Trade Deadline, but trades aren't permitted after that date. With regards to newly acquired players, the Aug. 31 postseason roster deadline remains in effect.

    • Apparently he is also seeking extensions. The problem appears to be what many on this board were saying it likely was instead of a JA problem.     
    • Looks like Eduardo Rodriguez to the DBacks for 4/$80 mm.   Two observations: - Not an unimaginable contract - So much for ERod insisting on playing on the East Coast to be closer to his family.   
    • Of course, that $250,000 per year will be worth about $50,000 in today’s money in couple of decades.    I remember my dad telling me that when he was in law school (early 1950s) he and his friends agreed that if someone guaranteed them $10,000 a year for life, they’d be set.  
    • Seems like there was more to that interview.  Wish I could see the rest of it.  
    • Starter that would probably have been at AAA in 2024. Taken by the Guardians.  26, only 5'11".  Probably a reliever if he makes it to the majors. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=gillis000con   Not taken were: Hudson Haskin, soon to be 25 year old outfielder with 60 speed, and the ability to put up a 360 OBP and a 800 OPS in both AA and AAA.  2nd round pick.  Right handed bat who might be about to back up Mullins in center a some point in 2024.  Doesn't have to be on 40 man but could be in ST.  Coming off hip surgery that shorten his 2023.   Poor arm and lack of power make him a bench player.  But a good line drive hitter.  Makes up for poor jumps and routes with his speed. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=haskin000hud Maverick Handley, will be 26 years old in March catcher that could be the O's 3rd catcher in 2024.   Had a 373 OBP at AAA last year.  Good on the base paths.   Strong arm.  Threw out 34% of base stealer last year.  Doesn't need to be on the 40 man but will be in ST.  Had 9 errors in 2024 which  is too high. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=handle000mav        
    • He becomes a free agent at the end of the year.  It’s a one year thing.  If they are really good, it will have been worthwhile, but they could just be mediocre. 
    • This would likely be their best investment.  Pay for great management that can find cheaper talent.
