Yankees Finally Acquiring Juan Soto in Blockbuster Trade


The New York Yankees have reportedly acquired All-Star outfielder Juan Soto in a blockbuster trade with the San Diego Padres, sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to ESPN’s Jeff Passan Wednesday (December 6) night.

The New York Yankees are reportedly "finalizing" a blockbuster trade with the San Diego Padres to acquire All-Star outfielder Juan Soto, MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported on Wednesday (December 6).

"Juan Soto trade agreement is being finalized now, source confirms," Soto wrote on his X account.

The trade, which was initially reported by YES Network's Jack Curry and MLB Network's Joel Sherman, will also send Trent Grisham to the Yankees in exchange for Michael King, Drew Thorpe, Jhony Brito, Randy Vásquez and Kyle Higashioka.

The deal has reportedly been delayed due to the Padres having to still review Soto's medical information before its completion, YES Network's Bryan Hoch reports.

"The delay on the Juan Soto trade is coming from San Diego's side as they review medicals/information. Stay tuned," Hoch wrote on his X account.
