With the COVID-19 pandemic pushing back the start of the MLB season, it's naturally possible that the July 31 trade deadline will be pushed back.
MLB would like to start the season in late May, though those plans are tentative and dependent on the virus slowing its trajectory by then. Per sources, the league will try to play as many games as possible, could expand the playoffs, and hold a World Series in November or even December.
All of these plans are tentative, of course. Add to that list one that has not been mentioned much, the trade deadline. According to a person with knowledge, the league has not yet made a decision on the deadline, and plans to discuss the issue.
