Padres’ Juan Soto Deal ‘Highest-Impact Trade I’ve Ever Seen,’ AL GM Says


Juan Soto (The Washington Post)

MLB executives praised the San Diego
Padres and Washington Nationals for Tuesday’s blockbuster deal
headlined by superstar outfielder Juan Soto.

The Nats sent Soto and first baseman
Josh Bell to the Friars in exchange for designated hitter Luke Voit
and a hefty package of young players and prospects, including
MacKenzie Gore, C.J. Abrams, Robert Hassell III, James Wood and
Jarlin Susana.

“I’m still breathless by the Soto
trade,” an unnamed AL executive told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand. “The
Nats insisted they were going to get an unprecedented return or not
move him—and they got an unprecedented return. Have to give
[Padres general manager] A.J. [Preller] credit for collecting that
kind of talent and also for being bold enough to trade it away. They
have as much star power as anyone I can remember.”

An AL GM added: “Wow. Highest-impact
trade I’ve ever seen. [Nationals general manager Mike] Rizzo did a
great job maximizing the return.”
