It’s trade season in Major League Baseball. The 2022 MLB trade deadline is 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 2, which means teams only have a few hours left to solidify their rosters for the stretch race. There’s no shortage of storylines or big names in this year’s trade deadline. National phenom Juan Soto is the biggest name in the market, and he could pick up one of the biggest trade packages ever after apparently rejecting a contract extension offer in Washington.
Willson Contreras, Frankie Montas, Ian Happ, Noah Syndergaard and Josh Bell are some of the other notable names who could be moved by Tuesday night.
The majority of the action will likely take place on Tuesday afternoon, but some teams are doing business early. The Yankees have already acquired outfielder Andrew Benintendi from the Royals, and the Mariners have given their rotation a boost by trading for Luis Castillo from the Reds. The Padres then made the biggest move yet on Monday, bringing Josh Hader closer to the Brewers.
