What’s the difference between being put on Waivers and being DFA’d?

When a player is waived the team and staff line up to wave goodbye as the player leaves the team facility.
When a player is DFA’d it means he has Done Effed up Again and there is no assembly to see them off.August 12, 2022 at 10:59 am #195158WoosterParticipantFree

Designated for Assignment (DFA)
A player designated for assignment is removed from his club’s 40-man roster and, within the next seven days, traded, released or, if he clears waivers, assigned to the minor leagues. A club may not designate a player for assignment if the corresponding transaction is to recall a player on optional assignment.
A waiver is permission from other clubs to trade or assign a Major League player’s contract. A waiver request is filed through the Commissioner’s Office and granted for a limited time period. There are four types of waivers: 1) unconditional release waivers, 2) outright waivers, 3) optional waivers, and 4) trade assignment waivers.

I also provide some DFA definition in every relevant article here, such as the one about McFarland the other day, which is on the front page, free for all who will read it.
“Designated for assignment means that the Cardinals have seven days to trade, waive or release McFarland. As a result, a 40-man roster spot has been freed up.”August 12, 2022 at 4:05 pm #195185gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
Until recently the month of August is when most waivers were done but I think that was done away with. There used to be two deadlines, the trade deadline on July 31 and the waiver deadline on August 31. Now there is just the trade deadline. But I imagine August 31 still serves as the deadline for your postseason roster.August 12, 2022 at 5:18 pm #195201Brian WaltonKeymasterPaid - Annual
Yes, the most common trade waivers in August were revocable, but they are no longer used. The July trade deadline is a firm deadline. Outright waivers and release waivers remain as always.
Yes, August 31 is the postseason deadline, but there are ways around that later. (by replacing an injured player)
