Re: Neftali Soto
Soto's been on the radar for awhile. 6-3 180 pounds, Soto is from Puerto Rico where he broke Juan Gonzalez' HS home run record for PR. He had an .809 OPS in 2007 as an 18 y/o in the GCL and if you like RISP he OPS'd 1.010 with runners in scoring position. He's still raw and has a long way to go and doesn't project to stay at SS. Maybe 3B or left field. He is an intriguing prospect and this year it will be interesting to see if he can show some discipline and keep the strikeouts from getting out of control - he has a wide stance and long swing so discipline will be important.
