MLB’s 2020 trade deadline is approaching, and it’s set for 4:00 p.m. ET on Monday, August 31 this time around. The deadline is usually on July 31, but the Covid-19 pandemic caused that date to be adjusted to fit the new 60-game season.

While teams have been able to make trades after the trade deadline in the past through a waiver process, that option was eliminated ahead of the 2019 season and won’t be available to clubs in 2020. Teams will only be able to add free agents following the deadline. Players must appear on an active roster before 11:59 p.m. ET on September 15 to be eligible for the playoffs.

Here’s what’s going on in MLB’s trade market now.
