The Nationals will reportedly receive a major haul, including lefty MacKenzie Gore, outfielders Robert Hassell III and James Wood, shortstop C.J. Abrams, Eric Hosmer and righty Jarlin Susana.
Players of this caliber not only have an impact on the team but the betting landscape. Let's jump into how significantly Tuesday's blockbuster impacted gambling odds.
Before Tuesday's trade heated up, the Padres sat at +2000 to win the World Series at multiple sportsbooks. San Diego's odds to win it all have now shortened drastically, including +1100 at both FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook.
The Padres still sit behind the following teams to win the Commissioner's Trophy: Los Angeles Dodgers (+370), New York Yankees (+390), Houston Astros (+475), New York Mets (+650) and Atlanta Braves (+1000).
San Diego also currently sits at +400 at AP Bet to win the National League, if that is a bet that quenches your thirst instead.
Entering Tuesday, the slugger is hitting .246 with a .894 OPS and 21 home runs. He also leads the league in walks, with 91.
Per AP Sports Research, Soto is one of only three players in MLB history to have at least 100 HRs and 450 BBs in their first 564 career games (Ted Williams, Frank Thomas).
