Trade deadline day is here in Major League Baseball. The MLB 2022 trade deadline or 6pm ET is set for Tuesday (August 2), meaning teams have just finished boosting their rosters ahead of a playoff round in August and September.

About six hours before the deadline, the Nationals and Padres agreed to a deal that would send Soto (and Josh Bell) to San Diego and a group of VIPs to Washington.

Before the Soto deal, the Padres made a surprise splash when they acquired Josh Hader from the Brewers. Meanwhile, the Mariners made waves by trading for Luis Castillo, the best pitcher available.
