Could Juan Soto be traded in season?

According to reporter Buster Olney, he reported Wednesday morning The Washington Nationals may reportedly be "compelled" to move superstar outfielder Juan Soto ahead of the Aug. 2 trade deadline.

The Nats would likely set a "really high price" since Soto can't become a free agent until after the 2024 season.

"If they're not going to sign him [to a long-term deal], then they'll need to trade him," an MLB source told Olney. "The question is: When?"

In February, Soto confirmed to ESPN's Enrique Rojas he turned down a 13-year, $350 million extension offer from the Nationals.
