If he can't cut out in LF, then his only real value is as trade bait for another organization at this point.
I would shift Soto to LF immediately. Frazier can always spell Votto at 1B. Presumably (hopefully) we won't have a need at 1B for a long, long time. I'd like to see if Soto could become a 30+HR bopper in LF for the next five years.
