In addition to paying attention to the whereabouts of Japanese second-string superstar Shohei Ohtani during this MLB offseason, the fate of the Padres’ 25-year-old slugger outfielder Juan Soto is also a hot topic. According to “MLB Network” reporter Jon Morosi, the Yankees and Padres are “close” to completing a “5-for-2” trade. The Stripers are expected to acquire Soto, allowing him to join Aaron Judge and Aaron Judge. Alex Verdugo forms a luxurious outfield lineup.

Morosi published an article on Taiwan time today (7th) and revealed that sources told him that the Yankees are expected to send away 28-year-old starting pitcher Michael King, who has performed well this season, and 23-year-old top 100 rookie pitcher Drew Thorpe, 25-year-old pitcher Jhony Brito, 25-year-old pitcher Randy Vasquez, and catcher Kyle Higashioka acquired the coveted Soto and outfielder Gurry from the Padres. Trent Grisham.

However, according to reports from “SNY” reporter Andy Martino and “MLB.com” Yankees reporter Bryan Hoch, the deal is currently only “nearly” completed and is expected to wait until the Padres confirm five players. The two sides will formalize the trade package only after the Yankees player’s medical report is clear.

Soto, who is only 25 years old, has been selected to the All-Star Game three times in his six-season career. He was traded to the Padres by the Nationals in mid-season in 2022. He played in 162 games last season and hit 35 of 568 at-bats. He hit a home run, scored 109 RBIs, and had batting averages of .275, .410, and .519. In addition to winning the Silver Slugger Award, he also ranked 6th in the National League MVP rankings. If the Yankees really get Soto as they wish, he will also form the most powerful outfield lineup in MLB with Judge and Verdugo in the new season.
