All and all it's probably a waste of time to argue about guys who's only major contribution to the reds probably will be, hey they were a throw in for a trade for a major league piece. I mean I hope I'm wrong and I hope someone points this post back out to me if I am but unless there are drastic changes to the reds both guys are stuck behind votto.
I can see lutz getting a shot before soto. Dusty seems to like him. Either way either of them will probably be replaced by winker in a year if not less if he pans out.
Lutz can play the OF. Soto? Not so much.

Soto with his first HR of the year tonight.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
3 for 4 tonight, now at .273/.322/.704 OPS. Not great but trending in the right direction. Is there any possibility that he can play LF?
Maybe I'm just excited about Soto's performance today. But he had some very good reports early in his minor league career. At the time, he wasn't hitting for power but the talk was that his power would come.
I'm just wondering whether the Reds have a solid power hitting righty bat at AAA in Soto.
Don't know how it would work defensively, but if Soto keeps hitting for awhile, I'd like to see him up with the big club, particularly while Ludwick is out.
At minimum, he could be a righty bench bat, which the Reds don't really have.
