It is done.

After weeks and weeks of discussions, the Washington Nationals have traded superstar outfielder Juan Soto. According to sources, Soto is headed to the San Diego Padres for a massive haul.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network first reported on an agreement, and then Jeff Passas and Jon Heyman confirmed the deal as done.

It took a while, and hours before the MLB Trade Deadline, it looks like both sides were able to reach an agreement.

As expected, Padres fans are through the roof with the addition of Soto.

The Padres are also receiving Josh Bell in the deal, something that came to fruition early Tuesday morning. Eric Hosmer is also reportedly going to Washington in this deal.

After years and years of missing on top-notch talent and trading away stars, the Padres are reversing course.

They started it off on Monday by signing Joe Musgrove to a long-term deal, then acquired Brewers All-Star closer Josh Hader.

The Padres are loaded, and a lineup featuring Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr., and Juan Soto is scary.

Time to rejoice for Padres fans. Not only did they land Juan Soto AND Josh Bell, but they were able to get rid of Eric Hosmer’s contract and the recent struggles from the first baseman.

Times are changing in San Diego.
