2022 MLB trade tracker: Listing every transaction before deadline originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The 2022 MLB trade deadline is almost here.
Teams across the league have to make quick decisions, determining whether to go all-in for a postseason push or retool for the future. Juan Soto, JD Martinez, Willson Contreras and maybe even Shohei Ohtani – if you believe the rumors – could all be traded this summer.
As trades come in fast and furious, it can be hard to keep track of everything across the league.
Here’s a running list of every trade leading up to the 2022 deadline:
Tampa Bay acquired outfielder David Peralta from Arizona on Saturday. The Diamondbacks received catcher Christian Cerda, both teams confirmed. Peralta is currently batting 0.248 this season while Cerda, 19, is a youth prospect worth keeping an eye on.
July 30: Dodgers acquire Chris Martin from Cubs
The Dodgers added a new reliever to the bullpen in Chris Martin from the Cubs, both teams confirmed Saturday. Chicago got back utilityman Zach McKinstry from Los Angeles.
July 29: Mariners land Luis Castillo from Reds
The Mariners are pushing for it all this year, and rightfully so. Just days after landing Carlos Santana, Seattle reportedly is now acquiring right-hander Luis Castillo from the Reds, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Cincinnati takes back four prospects: Noelvi Marte, Edwin Arroyo, Andrew Moore and Levi Stoudt.
June 27: Mariners acquire Carlos Santana from Royals
Seattle president Jerry Dipoto acted quickly, and this trade has paid dividends. Santana has more home runs with the Mariners than he did with the Royals this season in half as many games. Kansas City acquired Wyatt Mills and William Fleming in the deal.
Vogelbach has bounced around the league since debuting with the Mariners in 2016, but the 29-year-old first baseman is a solid lefty bat. The Mets sent pitcher Colin Holderman to the Pirates in return.
July 23: Mets acquire Michael Perez from Pirates
One day later, New York and Pittsburgh struck another deal. Perez will provide the Mets with catcher depth, and the Pirates received some cash considerations in return.
July 25: Red Sox acquire Abraham Almonte from Brewers
Boston made a minor trade of cash considerations for Almonte, a 33-year-old, switch-hitting outfielder who has played for six teams since 2013. The move was mostly made out of necessity, as the Red Sox are dealing with a handful of injuries on the big-league roster.
Just minutes after getting swept by the rival Mets, the Yankees traded for Royals All-Star outfielder Andrew Benintendi. New York sent three pitching prospects to Kansas City in the deal for Benintendi, who won a World Series ring with the Red Sox in 2018.
July 28: Mets acquire Tyler Naquin, Phillip Diehl from Reds
The Mets continue to be active ahead of the deadline, as they landed outfielder Tyler Naquin, who is a left-handed hitter, and left-handed reliever Phillip Diehl from the Reds. Cincy received a pair of minor league prospects, right-hander Jose Acuna and second baseman Hector Rodriguez, in the deal.
