No idea, but I said weeks ago, when Ludwick got hurt, that Soto should move to LF. I'm sure he's slow and won't have range, but I still think he should play some games there.
Soto might have been a really good candidate to platoon with XPaul in LF for the Reds while Ludwick is out. But it doesn't look like the Red are going there.
I'm sensing that Soto is near ready to hit in the big leagues.
Soto has power and potentially could be a serious major league hitter. I wonder if the Reds agree with this.
The Reds do not have a potent righty bat off the bench. Soto could be that too. Excited about his hitting this year, especially given his promise earlier in his minor league career.
