Trade deadline day in Major League Baseball is here. The 2022 MLB trade deadline is set for Tuesday (Aug. 2) at 6 p.m. ET, meaning teams have just a few minutes left to update their rosters before the playoffs push into August and September.

The Yankees In what was one of MLB’s most exciting teams before the deadline, Joey Gallo was traded to the Dodgers for starter Frankie Montas, outfielder Andrew Benintendi and relievers Lou Trevino and Scott Efros. Prior to the Soto deal, the Padres made a surprising move when they acquired Josh Hader from the Brewers. The Mariners, meanwhile, made waves by trading for Luis Castillo, the best starting pitcher available.
