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.
If he had done that over a year I would agree with you but it was a small sample size that he did that in. I am pulling for the guy like anyone else but he needs to show more consistency
