Major League Baseball could make a huge change heading into next year.

The league is toying with the idea of moving its trade deadline up a few weeks.

During this week’s general manager meetings, members of the commissioner’s office and executives from the teams are expected to discuss the elimination of the trade waivers in favour of a solid trade deadline, which could land in mid-August.

Currently, the non-waiver trade deadline is July 31 at 4pm eastern. Any trades after that time, the players are required to pass through waivers to be traded and must be acquired by the end of August 31 to be eligible for any teams making the postseason.

Even though the league is weighing the interest of the uniform deadline, any changes they would like to make will require the MLB Players Association’s approval.

The GM meetings open on Tuesday and are scheduled to conclude Thursday in Carlsbad, California.
