Not all who wander are lost
From the scouting reports I saw it appears Soto's bat was always considered his biggest strength. Similar to Valaika, it appears he projects defensively as a 2B or 3B at the major league level. I'm pretty excited about this guy.
Referring to a SS as having average range &/or arm is no insult, as that position is stocked with guys who have crazy range/arms. Just being average at that position is quite an accomplishment.
