A single July 31 trade deadline plus an All-Star Game Election Day will be implemented in 2019 while roster expansion will happen in 2020 as part of a significant agreement between Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association, MLB confirmed in a statement about multiple rule changes Thursday.

The biggest change in 2019 will be the move to a single trade deadline, which will be on July 31. Previously, teams were able to acquire players that pass through waivers beyond that date and have them playoff eligible, as long as they were on the roster before the first day of September. The sides are discussing when trades can resume, with after the League Championship Series or after World Series among the possibilities. The agreement is subject to ratification by the 30 Clubs. The mound-visit limit, a somewhat controversial addition past year, will be reduced from six to five after a season where the new rule didn't prove to be much of an issue.
