If nobody claims him than they are free to trade him. If someone does claim him they have one opportunity to pull him back. That's why you see teams dumping their entire ML rosters on to waivers in August and is the cause of the inevitable "Oh my God, (Fill in your favorite star) is on waivers!" threads.
Oh my God, Pujols is on waivers!
Matthias wrote:Right. And there's also irrevocable waivers that the team cannot withdraw the player if he is claimed. Example I can think of is Manny while the Sox were trying to trade for Alex Rodriguez. Manny was complaining that the Sox wouldn't trade him so they placed him on irrevocable waivers. Anybody who wanted him and his salary could have taken him for keeps.
