2013 MLB August Waiver Tracker

USA TODAY Sports

Bookmark this page as your source for the latest on waiver-wire movement in the majors this August.

Once the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline passes, teams may only trade players if they have cleared revocable trade waivers or been claimed off of waivers. If a player is claimed, his team may do one of three things: pull him back off waivers and keep him for the remainder of the season, trade him to the claiming team for negotiated compensation, or award the player to the claiming team without compensation. If a player clears waivers, the team can trade him to any team in the league. Most players are placed on waivers during August, and only a few get leaked out to the public. Don't read too much into a player's placement on waivers--it rarely means anything.
