Dodgers General Manager Addresses Juan Soto Trade Rumors
The hottest name on the market right now is absolutely Juan Soto. Given his contract situation and the seemingly stressful relationship between him and the Nationals, there is a good chance they at least try to trade him in the next week. That obviously has Dodgers fans all sorts of giddy with the potential that could bring.
Even though the clear need appears to be pitching, it’s tough to pass up on the chance to trade for a generational talent. At the very least, you can be sure that the Dodgers will at least check in on Soto and see what the asking price is.
That’s what Brandon Gomes seemed to indicate. The Dodgers General Manager spoke with MLB Radio this week about Soto, and he definitely didn’t count LA out of the market for his services. He actually sounded pretty positive.
“Juan Soto is obviously one of the best players in the game. Any team would be fortunate to have him in their lineup. Whatever that return is going to be probably the greatest return ever for a player. With the control and age and talent. Everyone will want Juan Soto on their team, and it’s just kind of having those conversations and see where it ends up.”
Obviously, Gomes’ statement could be the company line that’s expected. But it would line up with everything we have come to know about Andrew Friedman with the Dodgers. If there is a big name out there on the market, they’re going to check in and see if there is a deal to be made.

What would that look like? Well, as Gomes said, it’s going to be one of the greatest return packages of all time. But Gomes also went on to say that he felt the Dodgers farm system was incredibly packed, well enough to get a deal done with Washington.

Wait until he becomes a free agent. We would have to give up almost our entire farm system to get him.
Not the whole farm system. Half the top 10. If we take Corbin’s contract back, I think a deal of May, Pepiot Busch Pages Mckinstry and Eddys Alvarez should get it done. Give up 2 bench pieces, 2 SP and 2 Bats. Dodgers still have Cartaya, Vargas and Miller as well as a bunch of midlevel prospects.
Keep May. Throw in Bellinger.
Throw in Muncy and Taylor and keep May.
Soto will be a great addition. If we can make a good deal.
Forget Soto. Resign Trea Turner.
Signing Soto will make it easer to sign Turner. He has already said he wants to play with Soto again.
Give up Buhler Lux and 4 top prospects anyway since mlb started checking for substances on pitchers Buhler not the same.
Lux and prospects THO dodgers dont need Soto if u can get him tho u DEFINITELY should l
