2022 MLB Trade Deadline: Winners and losers from this year’s deadline madness
After the action took a little while to get going, the floodgates burst and the transactions have been coming in one after another after another ever since.
Some of baseball’s biggest names are now switching uniforms including Juan Soto, Trey Mancini, Tyler Mahle, Luis Castillo, Josh Hader, Whit Merrifield, Noah Syndergaard, Raisel Iglesias, Brandon Drury, David Peralta, Michael Fulmer, Harrison Bader, Jorge López, José Quintana, Christian Vázquez and Frankie Montas.
Lost in the shuffle was the absolutely gigantic contract extension the Braves signed Austin Riley to as well as utilityman Jonathan Villar finding a new home in Seattle.
While a slew of big names were on the move at this year’s deadline, there were also some players who surprisingly stayed put when it was widely expected that they would indeed be on the move. This includes Willson Contreras, David Bednar, Carlos Rodón, Ian Happ, Madison Bumgarner, Jordan Lyles, J.D. Martinez, Nate Eovaldi, Michael A. Taylor, Scott Barlow and Pablo López to name a few.
As one of the crazier deadlines in recent memory comes to a close, it’s time to take a (very) early look at some of the winners and losers once all is said and done.
