Post Waivers Rule

The trading deadline is here and passed, but that doesn't mean that there can't be any player movement, it just makes it more difficult due to the Waivers rule....

If a player placed on major-league waivers is not claimed by another team within two business days after waivers have been requested, then the player has "cleared waivers," and the team has secured waivers for the remainder of the waiver period. The team can then do one of three things:
1. Send him to the minors.
2. Trade him to another team, even if the trading deadline has passed.
3. Do nothing at all.
Any trades involving a 40-man-roster player from July 31 to the end of the season may involve only players who have cleared major-league waivers. If a player does not clear waivers (he is claimed by one or more other teams) the club requesting waivers may withdraw the waiver request. If the club does not withdraw the waiver request, the player's contract is assigned as follows:
1. If only one claim is entered, the player's contract is assigned to the claiming club.
2. If more than one club in the same league make claims, the club lower in the current standings gets the player.
3. If clubs in both leagues claim the player, preference shall always go to the club in the same league as the club requesting waivers.
Baseball season's underway...
So you'd better get ready for a brand new day
Hey Chicago whattya say?

You see why we take more honus on the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Of course, there have been several key players that have found their way to new teams between Aug. 1 and Aug. 31. On Sept. 1, the post-season roster is set, and the minor-leaguers can come to the big club as the rosters expand to 40 for the stretch run.
