He hit a couple of bombs today. Amazing how little attention he has gotten this season! Probably because we had all the hype in 2018 and encores aren't as exciting as the original thing. Through

He isn’t in discussion of top 3, yet.

 

I probably wouldn't reach for Soto top 3 but I definitely wouldn't laugh at the person who decided to do it.  I think Soto's upside may just be the greatest of all.  He can easily it .330+ with 40+ HR and 15 Sbs.  The Sbs are not safe.  The Nats may decide not to risk him run into an injury.  His foot speed is not incredibly great.  But he could have a .450 OBP in 2020 which implies a possible extra 5 or more steals and 20+ SB upside.

It really can't be stated enough - he's tracking to be an all-time great hitter.

At age 20, with masterful plate discipline, tremendous bat speed and bat-to-ball ability, and power to all fields, there's really nothing that's going to stop him barring health.

If this dude's ceiling Miggy + 10-15 SBs a year? I just figured Acuna was the natural guy to eventually take away the perennial #1 spot from Trout, but s---, maybe it's Soto.

 

Crazy time in general for South American talent. Soto, Acuna, Vlad Jr., and then you have Wander in the minors who looks like he is going to be incredible, too.

Back to Soto, though. Dude is incredible and is what every Nats fan thought that overrated clown Harper would be.

doesn't sound serious, but still hope everything is good.

Juan Soto is undergoing X-rays on his right elbow after getting hit by a pitch in Tuesday's comeback win over the Mets.

Soto helped spur that comeback after the HBP and he is in the Nationals' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon, so this wouldn't appear to be anything too worrisome. He'll wear an elbow guard for extra protection.

Soto is better than flashy Acuna 

Soto is the more complete hitter, but Acuna is obviously great overall too (and the more complete player for fantasy).  Still, no real reason to compare the two as they are both two of the top young players in the game.

The interesting thing will be the over under on Soto’s stolen bases.  I’d be happy if he duplicated 2019.   It nobody used to see him as a base stealer.

I would set the under over back around 5 or 6.  This year seemed to just be one of those seasons where he got some windows of opportunity and took advantage, there were two months May and September where he didnt even attempt to steal a base and he was only CS one time.  So to me that tells me he picked and chose his spots well, I see one came off Thor who allowed more steals than anyone in the majors this year at least one maybe more came on the backend of double steals.  This is a guy who has never had more than I think 5 maybe 6 in any season majors or minors.  Its one of those bonuses, if he steals 10 great, but as I am plugging my roster in and the numbers I think I need, if I had him on my roster, my projection would be about 5.
