Also, everybody seems to be enamored with power hitting prospects like Soto, but it's hard for me to get excited about a guy with a career .318 OBP in the minors. I don't care how young he is.
I don't think anyone is enamored with Soto. Coming off of a 30 HR season he was unranked in Baseball America's Top 10. I had him ranked 10th in the system. John Sickels had him ranked 11th. Our list on the board had him at #9 before the trades.
At the same time, it is hard for me to get excited over a 22 year old in Low A with 1 home run in 235 at bats. He seems like an ok prospect and all, he has an idea at the plate and makes good contact, but he is old for his level and has a sub .800 OPS.
