11:34 – Hosmer to Red Sox

With Eric Hosmer out of the Juan Soto trade after rejecting a deal to Washington, the Boston Red Sox swooped in and will acquire him from San Diego, sources tell ESPN. The finances are unclear: Padres could pick up a chunk of money — or could send along a prospect with Hosmer.

11:33 – Passan Confirms Gallo Trade

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in agreement on a deal to acquire outfielder Joey Gallo from the New York Yankees, a source tells ESPN, confirming @ragazzoreport. The trade, the source says, is pending a medical review and should be completed soon.

11:19 – Dodgers Getting Gallo? Not Confirmed by Passan

10:49 – Possible Dodgers Target, Anthony Bass, Goes to Jays

Marlins are trading relievers Anthony Bass and Zach Pop to the Blue Jays for Jordan Groshans per source.

10:32 – More on Hosmer

Hosmer has declined to go to the Nats in the Soto deal as is his contractual right. The deal is still happening. Soto is a Padre.

10:23 – Hosmer is still a Padre but rest of deal goes through

Eric Hosmer rejected the trade to Washington and will not be part of the Soto deal, per source. Now the Padres have less than five hours to figure out what to do with Hosmer, who is owed $39 million from 2023-25.

10:16 – Rumor time for the Dodgers

With the world stopping for the Juan Soto trade, let’s hope things get jump-started again.

With Juan Soto seemingly headed to San Diego, the Dodgers are looking at Ian Happ and David Robertson of the Cubs, per sources. Plenty of competition for both players, however. Mets said to be interested in Robertson and Willson Contreras, as well

9:27 – Fog of war update on Soto trade

  • Eric Hosmer has a no-trade clause for the Nationals. He has not waived it yet.
  • In the pre-season prospect rankings it went like this for the Padres
    1. CJ Abrams
    2. Robert Hassell
    3. Luis Campusano
    4. McKenzie Gore
    5. James Wood

The Nationals have done well and the Padres are going all in. Reminder, Manny Machado can opt out of his contract after 2023. I can almost guarantee, he will.

8:52 – Details on Soto trade

The package going back to Washington for Juan Soto and Josh Bell, sources tell ESPN:
– LHP MacKenzie Gore
– OF Robert Hassell III
– SS C.J. Abrams
– OF James Wood
– RHP Jarlin Susana
– one more major league player
That’s the only holdup right now to the agreed-upon deal.

8:48 AM – Soto to the Padres

The San Diego Padres are finalizing a deal to acquire superstar outfielder Juan Soto from Washington, sources tell ESPN.
One of the biggest deals in baseball history goes down, and it sends the 23-year-old to SD, where he will team with Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado.
