Re: Reds Top Prospects June 2012 Edition
I agree I think it's too soon to give up on Soto...for the following reasons..
1.) Age...23, he can repeat AAA with no problem next year.
2.) Power 30 home runs in the minors any year is huge.
3.) He's hit well in the past.
The major problem is he's blocked by maybe the best position player in baseball right now.
Also the starting position for the next several years is looking good. At AA we have 3 or 4 guys who by next year should be at the Ville. This will give Walt some good trade bait or replacements.
