For those of you not baseball fans, Tuesday is Major League Baseball’s trading deadline. By that evening, trades of players between teams are sort of over for the year. (Yes, I understand this is the non-waiver deadline and the waiver deadline is at the end of August, but that is complicated to explain.) And so as the end of July approaches, trades can reach a frenetic pace as teams try and fill the holes in their rosters before the playoffs begin in October.
Thankfully the folks over at Cut 4 put together a flow chart to help teams figure out how to fill those needs.
Of course by this point, a number of these players have already switched sides. In terms of design, this is more like a Friday post. Just enjoy it.
