‘Supernova’ trade? Nightingale: San Diego could spend Soto ($440 million) and have Ohtani ($500 million)

Will the San Diego Padres make a ‘Supernova’ trade?

USA Today’s Bob Nightingale recently made a significant statement through his ‘Notebook’.

Nightingale argued that San Diego could use Juan Soto as a trade card for Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels).

San Diego acquired Soto from the Washington Nationals last season.

Soto turned down Washington’s $440 million offer. He seems to have determined that he could get more than $500 million in the free agent market.

But Soto is dying in San Diego. He performed 메이저사이트poorly in 2022 with a batting average of 0.236 with 4 home runs in 52 games.

San Diego tried hard to pretend to be calm, saying that it would need time to adapt to the new team.

However, Soto has not been able to escape from the extreme sluggishness this season.

As of the 28th (Korean time), he is recording a batting average of 0.183 with 4 home runs.

When Soto feels good, he throws a line drive to the center left. He’s been getting the ball rolling most of the time these days. He only hit 7 extra-base hits. He has 23 walks but only 1 stolen base, and is considered a below-average runner in the league.

As a result, San Diego’s troubles are deepening. Soto, who signed for $23 million this year, will become a free agent after the 2024 season.

San Diego could sign Soto to a long-term contract next year. However, Nightingale explained that he could change his mind when his grades were poor. He can decide that it is better to catch Ohtani than Soto.

Fans are paying keen attention to whether the biggest trade in the history of the major leagues will be completed.
