  • MLB Signings and Trades

    You can find an updated table above that lists the latest MLB transactions.

    MLB Transactions explained

    Baseball has long been considered by many as one of the most difficult North American sports to handicap, which makes staying on top of daily transactions very important. If you want to stay updated, you can follow all league transactions like MLB signings, trades, free agency, and minor-league assignments right here with Sports Interaction.

    What is a trade in MLB and how do they work?

    If you follow other leagues like the NFL or NBA, you’re aware that the MLB trades work a bit differently. Unlike other pro sports in North America, MLB teams aren’t permitted to include draft picks in trades. . Because teams can only trade players under contract, MLB trade rumors are always covering the possibility of a big-name trade.

    Even though MLB trades don’t include draft picks, teams are penalized for spending over the ‘bonus pool’, which is a set amount of money that can be used for draft picks. This helps level the playing field for smaller-revenue teams.

    Another part of MLB transactions you’ll want to follow is trade consent. Players that have been in the MLB for a full 10 seasons and have spent at least five straight seasons with one team can’t be traded without their consent. Some players also look to add no-trade clauses to their contracts.

    When is the MLB trade deadline?

    The MLB unofficially starts with the Spring Training pre-season period, which usually begins in February. The MLB season doesn’t officially start until Opening Day in late March or early April. The regular season runs until late September or early October. The post-season usually continues until early November and concludes with the World Series.

    For the most important MLB trades, you’ll want to pay attention during the off-season. The trade window starts two days after the World Series ends. At this time, you’ll start to see huge trades between teams, and coverage from every MLB trade tracker. The trade window continues until late July, making it one of the longest trading periods in any professional sport.

    Keep in mind that the new MLBPA collective bargaining agreement means the trade deadline date has now changed. You may have pencilled in July 30 because the trade deadline has been held on that date for years, but the MLB can now shift that date between July 28 and August 3.

    Can teams trade after the deadline?

    The MLB no longer has a ‘soft’ trade deadline. Before 2019, players could be traded after the deadline if they had a revocable trade waiver. This meant some players who were waived could be traded up until the end of August.

    This changed in 2019. Now, you’ll see that there’s a single MLB trade deadline between July 28 and August 4. The MLB still allows players to be placed and claimed on waivers until the end of August, but no trading is allowed.

    What is a Free Agent in baseball?

    Free agent signings are one of the most important baseball transactions you’ll want to follow. A free agent is a player who has a lapsed contract with a club or who has been released from a contract. This means the player can start to look for a new club and a new contract. Free agency transactions happen throughout the trade window, which means free agent rumors are common in the off-season.

    If you follow free agency signings, you’ll have a better idea of how each team will fare before Spring Training starts. But keep an eye out, as free agency signings can occur up until the trade deadline in mid-summer. You may also want to follow these types of Major League Baseball transactions because big-name signings will affect your team’s salary cap.

    How does a player become a free agent?

    Players become free agents in one of two ways. First, a team can release them from their contract before it ends. Second, they can spend six years with a single team, which then ends their contract unless renegotiated.

    A free agent can sign with any club according to their own terms, so long as the player and club are in agreement. Players who are traded under contract don’t have the right to decide which team they go to or under what conditions.

    When does MLB free agency begin and end?

    Free agency begins one day after the World Series ends (the trade window starts two days after). Players in free agency can’t sign with a new team until five days after the World Series concludes. This gives their team a chance to renegotiate terms for players whose contracts are ending. This is called a contract ‘option’.

    During this five-day window, other teams can also make offers to free agents. Free agents have up to 10 days to decide whether to accept an offer. Recently, ‘opt-outs’ have become common in free agency baseball transactions. This gives players under contract the right to opt-out of a contract after a certain period of time and look for a new contract.

    At this time, the MLB is still undergoing CBA updates with its Players’ Association, so changes may be pending.
