MLB News: Baseball Twitter Responds to Juan Soto, Eric Hosmer Drama

The baseball world reacts to the temporary hold up in the Juan Soto trade to San Diego due to a clause in Eric Hosmer’s contract.

At the time of this article, the deal involving Juan Soto and Josh Bell going to the Padres in exchange for Eric Hosmer and possibly a huge haul of prospects, has been stalled .

The problem appears to be revolving around Eric Hosmer, who reportedly has the Nationals on his no-trade list. So, the deal would need to be approved by Hosmer, which means that he could be the reason it doesn’t happen.
