Soto has 107 games total and his numbers are very skewed by his 15 game tirade at Billings last year.
Their performances are extremely comparable.
Unlike Vitters, Soto has hit well everywhere he's been. And no, their performances aren't comparable unless you think a 120 point difference in OPS is similar. Neftali Soto has outperformed Josh Vitters and it really hasn't been all that close so far.
