Trade Deadline Newsbeat

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

MLB execs polled on every big ‘22 topic so far

Who will be the biggest name moved prior to the Trade Deadline?

Frankie Montas, Athletics (8 votes)
Luis Castillo, Reds (7 votes)
Xander Bogaerts, Red Sox (5 votes)
Nathan Eovaldi, Red Sox (2 votes)
Aaron Nola, Phillies (1 vote)
Bryan Reynolds, Pirates (1 vote)
Nelson Cruz, Nationals (1 vote)
Joey Gallo, Yankees (1 vote)
Juan Soto, Nationals (1 vote)

Predictably, Montas headlines this list, as many around the game had expected him to be traded before the season began.

“Someone will need pitching and Oakland will be dealing in a lopsided sellers’ market,” an AL assistant GM said.

That pitching market will also likely include Castillo, who was activated from the injured list on Monday after missing the opening month.

“Castillo will be the most prominent player traded at the Deadline in what may amount to one of the most significant class of starting pitchers to be traded at a Deadline,” an AL GM said.
