Tools wise, Soto is still getting reports that he can stick there. Skill wise, he isn't close yet. From a pure defensive perspective, he should be in the AZL/Billings. But his bat is way too advanced for that of course. I expect Soto, if healthy, will be in instructs getting plenty of reps at catcher again.
