Of course not.
It means that, particularly for an NL parent team, defense is important.
Perhaps Soto can be competent defensively, but I haven't read that he has any special defensive skills.
Stubbs is reputedly a superb centerfielder. Given his good hitting at advanced levels, he edges out Soto for me in the number three spot. If Stubbs hits for an .800 OPS at AAA next year, he becomes a viable candidate -- along with Alonso -- for the Reds top overall prospect.
