The Circle is discussing these kinds of rules right now.  You will hear before the actual playing starts.

FYI, CBS has refunded our 2020 fee to my credit card.  So next year is paid for unless COVID gets me, you'll be SOL.

Thus spake the Circle: trade deadline will be two weeks before the last scheduled regular season games.  Any players declared free agents at season's end are lost even though the season is short.  Any players opting out this year can be DLed.

One other question for the Circle: are there any restrictions on trading minor leaguers or draft picks? By the rules, they can't be traded until a month or two into a typical season. But that doesn't really make sense this year.

This might need to be something The Circle might need to consider if players who go on the Covid DL can't be publicly identified.

Trading of minor leaguers and picks is allowed when the actual season begins.  Should the season still end we will start fresh.
