I like Lotzkar, but you are talking about a guy who struggled to get his ERA under 5.00 while Soto was a guy who was hitting in the .320 range with extra base power.
I agree with you that Soto is a better prospect than Lotzkar right now, but Lotzkar's ERA was 3.58. If Lotzkar wasn't injured he would have been at the top of the Reds prospect list.
