MLBPA official on no-trade clauses and waiver trades

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ August 23, 2010 7:10 pm


A no-trade clause does not necessarily give a player the right to prevent his team from handing him over on waivers, according to an MLB Players Association official who spoke to MLBTR this afternoon. In many cases, a player has a non-assignment clause that would prevent trades and waiver claims. However, not all players with no-trade clauses can prevent their teams from handing them over on waivers.

In other words, Damon’s ability to prevent the Tigers from handing him to the Red Sox depends on the wording in his contract.
