Additionally, Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo has been bullish when asked about possibly trading Soto. He’s definitively shut down any speculation on the matter, with his latest denial coming on June 1.

“We are not trading Juan Soto,” Rizzo said on 106.7 the Fan. “We made it clear to his agent [Boras] and to the player. … We have every intention of building this team around Juan Soto.”

However, with Soto rejecting the $440 million offer, club officials reportedly believe they won’t have a better chance to sign the two-time All-Star, according to Rosenthal. The 23-year-old remains under club control for the rest of the season, and then two more after that, so the team does not need to trade him immediately if it does not get what it deems to be an acceptable offer.
