Report: Braves not one of the initial seven teams to make an offer for Juan Soto

Not surprisingly, the Braves don’t seem to be hot on the Juan Soto sweepstakes just yet. Reader beware, but according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, there are seven clubs interested in Soto — most of which you would expect:

If you’re a Braves fan, the last names you want to see on that list are the Mets and Dodgers, but unfortunately, they have the money and trade capital to get a deal done.

Hopefully, the Nationals are opposed to trading Soto within the division, because the Mets can arguably make the best offer AND give Soto the massive deal he wants. The Yankees are another obvious contender with deep pockets and assets to move for Soto, along with the Padres.

I really think it boils down to the Braves not having enough to give up in terms of prospects. Keep in mind, somebody like Kyle Muller, who is one of Atlanta’s better trade chips, is older than Soto by a whole year. Spencer Strider and Michael Harris II would be the starting point, with more players attached. I wouldn’t get your hopes up for Juan Soto coming to Atlanta if you’re a Braves fan, even though he would be incredible batting behind Ronald Acuña Jr.
