Prospect Spotlight

Soto is an above-average defender at both SS and 2B, where he features plus footwork and enough arm for the leftside of the dirt. His swing, approach, and bat-to-ball skills are good enough to profile there, but the rail thin Soto does not have the body type that projects to add much mass. His lack of physicality affects his ability to impact the baseball; while he may add some weight, thereā€˜s not much power potential in the profile other than the potential to drive the gaps at maturity. Given his ability to make consistent contact and a solid defensive toolset, he profiles as a potential utility infielder; the Angels have deployed him all over the infield this spring.
