Lutz's ceiling is much higher and closer to the big league level than any other bat still out there. He hit some big leaguers in the WBC qualifyer to the tune of a .300 average. Also looked great in Winter ball. All of which is a better case than Soto had... and to me better than anyone else on the board.
