The 2021 MLB trade deadline has arrived. We already saw several notable trades before Friday, including the Dodgers landing Max Scherzer and Trea Turner, and the Yankees getting Joey Gallo and Anthony Rizzo in separate deals. Friday promises to bring several more big trades. Here are the deadline details you need to know:
- The trade deadline is 4 p.m. ET. MLB moved it up one day because July 31 is a Saturday with several day games, making logistics difficult (trade candidates would need to be held out of the lineup, etc.).
- Non-40-man roster players can still be traded after July 30. MLB eliminated August and September waiver trades two years ago, so 40-man roster players are off-limits after the deadline.
- Trevor Story of the Rockies, and Kris Bryant of the Cubs could be the biggest remaining names moved on Friday.
And here are some of the notable deals that have gone down on Friday.
