Trade Deadline Day is here in Major League Baseball. The 2022 MLB trade deadline is scheduled for Tuesday (August 2) at or 6 p.m. ET, meaning teams have less than eight hours left to solidify their rosters before a playoff push in August and September . The deadline for business this year isn’t short on intrigue or big names. National phenom Juan Soto is the most notable name in the market, and he could receive one of the biggest business packages he has ever seen after he declined a contract extension offer in Washington.
Most of the action will probably take place on Tuesday afternoon, but some teams can’t wait to get the job done. The Yankees have been one of MLB’s busiest teams, with starter Frankie Montas, outfielder Andrew Benintendi and relievers Lou Trivino and Scott Efros. The Padres made a surprise splash on Monday when they acquired Josh Hader from the Brewers, and the Mariners made waves by trading for Luis Castillo, the top starting pitcher available.
Wilson Contreras, Ian Happ, Noah Syndergaard and Josh Bell are some of the other notable names that could be transferred as of Tuesday night.
