    Re: Neftali Soto

    It's time to call-up Neftali Soto IMO. The Reds play 6 games in AL parks and need a DH. The team needs some RH Pop. Votto needs rest and could DH while a Soto/Hannahan tandem shares 1B for a week. Soto is up to .291/.327/.453/.781 with 9 HR in 258 Abs. Against LHP he sits at .312/.361/.623/.985 with 6 HR in 77 ABs. Here is the missing lefty killer the team needs. He doesn't walk much, but he's got pop and has been playing some 3B as well to add a little positional value. Over his last 10 games .400/.415/.675/1.090 in 40 ABs.

    Given his positions, he may not be the best use of a bench spot all season, but over the next 6 games with the DH involved, his current hot streak and his ability against LHP, he'd be really darned useful IMO.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
