Where the Juan Soto trade rumors are with 24 hours to go
As of this writing, the Los Angeles Dodgers have begun making some stronger offers for Juan Soto to the Nationals.
Bob Nightingale from United States today and others too reported that the Nationals are willing to keep Soto if no one meets their very high asking price.
The Nationals are reportedly asking about five players in return, and they may want a team to take over starting pitcher Patrick Corbin’s contract.
For the Cardinals, infielder Nolan Gorman, starting pitcher Matthew Liberatore, outfielder Dylan Carlson, third base prospect Jordan Walker, and shortstop prospect Masyn Winn could be included in a deal. Players discussed for the Padres in a deal include starting pitcher MacKenzie Gore, infielder CJ Abrams, pitcher Adrian Morejón and outfield prospect Robert Hassell III.
If either team gets Soto, they’ll have him for that postseason run and two more seasons before he hits free agency. All three teams (barring a drastic turn in events) will be there in the postseason as well. The Nationals, on the other hand, have the worst record in sports this year.
