3 best trade destinations for Nationals’ Juan Soto after declining $440 million contract

A bombshell was dropped yesterday afternoon when it was reported that Washington Nationals star Juan Soto had turned down a massive 15 year, $440 million extension from the Nationals. As a result, Washington has decided that they will be unable to reach an extension with the face of their franchise, and they will proceed to entertain trade offers for Soto as a result. In this post, we’ll be looking at potential Juan Soto trade destinations.

With the MLB trade deadline just over two weeks away, that has sent the rest of the league into a frenzy. Teams are beginning to determine whether they have the assets to pursue Soto, and whether or not they are a realistic destination for one of the best players in the game.

Soto clearly believes that Washington isn’t the best spot for him and his future, so that begs the question; what team would be the best destination for Soto as he seeks a way off of the Nationals? Let’s take a look at the top three landing spots for the 23 year old slugger, starting with an upstart team in the American League West.
