The players most likely to be traded before Tuesday's MLB trade deadline

Welcome to trade deadline day. We finally got a rush of action on Monday, so let's see if the momentum holds into what should be a busy day. The deadline comes at 6 p.m. ET, so that gives Padres GM A.J. Preller a few extra afternoon hours to swing a deal ... or three.

Of course, much of the drama surrounds Juan Soto, the 23-year-old star for the Washington Nationals -- the team with the worst record in the majors. Soto remains available, and San Diego is one of the favorites to land him, but the pressure is on Nationals GM Mike Rizzo to make the right deal, a trade that may determine the fortunes of the franchise over the next six or seven years if he can hit a home run.
