its after 6 am EST for sure. ive had a few times where ive been up waiting to pick up a player without using waiver priority and the times theyve came off waivers and became available was different each time, but usually 6-7 am EST.
this morning i had a claim in for Gallado, and he never showed up in the transactions until close to 8 am EST.

This is what I found in Yahoo! I believe if you want to get a guy off waivers, you have to have your claim in by midnight.

All players dropped from a team's roster are immediately placed on waivers. During this waiver period—two days in Public Leagues and anywhere from zero to seven days in Custom Leagues—anyone in the league can claim the player except for the manager who dropped the player.

(Please note that a player added and dropped on the same day will remain a free agent. If a player is signed as a free agent and dropped that same day, he will not be subject to waivers.)

So, if a player in a Public League is dropped on a Wednesday afternoon, all managers can claim him until Friday at 11:59:59 pm PT. The player will then be assigned to their new team roughly four to eight hours after the claim deadline. Regardless of the time at which the claim is processed and the player was assigned to a team, all managers had their claims in by 11:59:59 pm PT.

From personal experience players go off waivers at around 4:30 PST

I watched Gallardo clear waivers this morning at nearly 9am EST. Pretty late IMO. Sometimes it won't go through when I leave for work (7:30), but by the time I get there at 8:30, waivers are usually processed.

I get it. Didn't think of those 1-day waiver leagues.

He just became a FA (6:35-6:40am) in my league. Was hoping this would happen because I have the #1 waiver in my league and was hoping to use it on Braun. Now I can.
