Juan Soto, a star OF for the Nationals

Monday marks the final day for MLB trades. According to reports, the Washington Nationals are not afraid to let the Juan Soto contest's deadline pass this summer without any victors.

The two-time All-Star would receive one final contract extension offer from the Nationals, according to reports on Friday. 

But according to MLB insider Hector Gomez's report, Soto would be dealt by the deadline if he didn't accept the last offer.

The Padres and Cardinals were thought to be the front-runners to acquire Soto, but Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported on Monday that the Dodgers have recently been much more "aggressive"

The organisation was in contact with "many teams," according to Mike Rizzo, general manager of Washington, considering the availability of the Home Run Derby champion.

In 341 at-bats this season, Soto has hit 20 home runs, drawn 88 walks, and has a slash line of.243/.403/.475 (leading the league in all three categories).
