MLB Rumors: One Team “Intensifying Pursuit” Of Juan Soto

The race for Juan Soto appears to be down to three teams, and according to MLB Insider Hector Gomez, one team in particular is "intensifying their pursuit." 

The St. Louis Cardinals "have been much more aggressive of late in their trade proposals," writes Gomez, while "the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers "also continue to offer their best prospect packages to the Washington Nationals."

These three teams as the top bidders seem to be confirmed by another Insider, Jon Heyman. 

Heyman confirms an earlier report we had from Ken Rosenthal, stating that the Dodgers are still a team to watch for on the Soto front.

As for the Cardinals, they have a mountainous glut of young talent, both in the majors and the minors, to send the Nationals' way

This should be an amazing race to the finish, up to 6pm Tuesday.
