One of the big sticking points with any Benintendi trade was his vaccine status, of which he was unvaccinated as of the Royals last trip to Toronto. Being that the Yankees and Blue Jays are in the same division, the line of thinking was that New York was out on a deal due to Benintendi’s vaccine status.
It appears that’s no longer an issue.

When is the MLB trade deadline? (Updated 2022)
This year’s MLB trade deadline is a little different than in the past. Trade will still work the same way and there will be a frenzy in the 11th hour, per usual, but it will all be happening a little later on the calendar.
Typically July 31st has served as the trade deadline in baseball. The last day of July acts as both the final chance for teams to make potentially World Series-winning changes to their rosters while also serving as the beginning of the home stretch toward the postseason.
Per the MLB’s official glossary :
Prior to the new CBA, the Trade Deadline almost always fell on July 31 at 4 p.m. ET. Prior to 2019, July 31 was referred to as the non-waiver Trade Deadline, and players could be traded after that date if they first cleared revocable trade waivers.
Pay very close attention to the emphasis put on ‘prior to the new CBA’ because things have since changed.
This year the MLB trade deadline will fall on August 2nd, with a brand new timestamp for when trades are no longer allowed. Rather than the 4 pm ET deadline, teams will have until 6 pm ET to agree to deals and send them to the league office for approval.
