Trade deadline day has arrived in Major League Baseball. The 2022 MLB trade deadline is 6 p.m. ET on Tuesday, August 2, which means teams have less than 12 hours to bolster their rosters ahead of a playoff push. There’s no shortage of storylines or big names in this year’s trade deadline. Nationals phenomenon Juan Soto is the most notable name in the market, and he could pick up one of the biggest trade packages ever after rejecting a contract extension offer in Washington.
Most of the action will likely take place on Tuesday afternoon, but some teams aren’t waiting to get things done. The Yankees were one of MLBthe busiest teams from, acquiring starter Frankie Montas, outfielder Andrew Benintendi and relievers Lou Trivino and Scott Effross. The Padres caused a stir Monday when they acquired Josh Hader from the Brewers, and the Mariners made waves by trading for Luis Castillo, the best starting pitcher available.
