Today's Waiver Deadline Could Force Teams' Hands
When it comes to making baseball personnel decisions, there are deadlines after deadlines. Today at 2 P.M., teams must decide about players to ask waivers to release or outright waivers. The speculation in Philadelphia is that this could make some players available for trade that had been unavailable earlier.
One such player is RHP Francisco Rosario of the Blue Jays. He's out of options, has had a decent spring training, and yesterday, the Phillies had a radar gun pointed in his direction.
