But I still think that Soto hasn't yet lived up to his potential. Some of it is injury. I'm not persuaded by his one excellent stat - 30 homers - in one AA season. Not enough for me, particularly since he now seems limited to first base.
Yorman is obviously much more of a raw prospect. But IMO he's off to a good start at a very young age. He apparently has more upside than Soto, and more upside than most (if not all) of the other prospects in the Reds system. Yorman certainly has more upside defensively than Soto.
I'm for Yorman in the runoff.

I went with Yorman here and earlier. I just watch him swing a bat and I see things that other guys simply can't match. I like Soto, having him at #10 on my personal list. But Yorman just has some things going on that others simply can't match.
I'll take Soto over Yorman, but I have both Sappelt and Torreyes ranked higher than either of them.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Yorman, given the choices. But I like Sappelt better.
Soto, since he's closer and has clearly figured something out. Yorman is the closest thing we have to a 5 tool prospect in the system, but he didn't show any of those in a season where his peers did. I'll take a guy with a pretty high chance at 30+ HRs over that any day, especially one that's just hitting AAA. All distractions aside, I think Yorman can still be a great player, but he's got work to do to get back to that #3 spot we had him at.
Heads of state that ride and wrangle. That look at your face from more than one angle. Can cut you from their bloated budgets. Like sharpened knives through Chicken McNuggets.
