The 2019 Major League Baseball trade deadline is coming up at 4 p.m. ET. Unlike in past years, this season does not feature a waiver-wire trade period next month. As such, the today’s deadline carries much more significance than it did in the past, when teams could fill out their rosters up until the season’s final month.
You wouldn’t know it based on the lack of activity so far this trade season. Coming into the final hours, the biggest name moved has been Marcus Stroman, the New York Mets on Sunday, and Trevor Bauer and Yasiel Puig, to the Reds and Indians, respectively, on Tuesday night. Beyond Stroman, July’s trade activity has been limited to — well, not household names. In the past week, teams have instead traded for the likes of Sergio Romo, Jake Diekman, Eric Sogard, and Jordan Lyles.
Nonetheless, today could bring with it a flurry of activity. Noah Syndergaard, Madison Bumgarner, Felipe Vazquez and Edwin Diaz are some of the bigger names on the pitching front who could be moved. Meanwhile, Nicholas Castellanos is regarded as one of the top hitters on the market. Remember to check out .
