Trade Assignment Waiver Rules Are Now in Effect

Normally the deadline for "non-waiver" (unrestricted) trades is 4 PM (Eastern) on July 31st. but because July 31st fell on a Sunday this year, the "non-waiver" trade deadline was extended one day (to 4 PM Eastern on August 1st) in 2016 (only). 

No trades can be made between 4 PM and 5 PM (Eastern) on July 31st (August 1st in 2016), and then beginning at 5 PM (Eastern) on July 31st (August 1st in 2016) and extending through to the conclusion of the MLB regular season, Trade Assignment Waivers must be secured before players on MLB 40-man rosters can be traded. (Waivers are never required to trade a player on a minor league reserve list).

    Even though Hammel is missing start, don't assume he'll not be on #Cubs postseason roster. Maddon says elbow problem isn't that bad

    Maddon on #Cubs postseason rotation: "I don't want to announce anything. We haven't talked to anybody yet"

    Maddon hopes Soler can take BP in Cincy, play in sim game Tue. "All of that should give us some kind of indication of where he's at"
