Major League Baseball’s 2022 trade deadline is in the books. The deadline moved to 6 p.m. ET on Tuesday, which means teams have just finished bolstering their rosters ahead of a playoff push in August and September. This year’s trade deadline was not short of storylines or big names. The biggest name of all – Juan Soto – was distributed about six hours before the deadline. The Nationals sent the superstar outfielder (along with Josh Bell) to the Padres on an eight-man forfeit.
Elsewhere, the Yankees were one of the busiest teams in MLB before the deadline, acquiring starter Frankie Montas, outfielders Andrew Benintendi and Harrison Bader, and relievers Lou Trivino and Scott Effross, while sending Joey Gallo to the Dodgers. Prior to the Soto deal, the Padres caused a stir when they acquired Josh Hader from the Brewers. Luis Castillo (Mariners), Noah Syndergaard (Phillies), Eric Hosmer (Red Sox) and Whit Merrifield (Blue Jays) have also found new homes.
