Juan Soto News
Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto recorded no hits on Friday, going hitless in three at-bats and struck out once. Soto has a .279 batting average with eight home runs and 27 RBI in 2021. Despite having a rough game Friday, fantasy managers who have him rostered should not worry as he has a hit in seven of his last ten games.
Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto hit his seventh home run of the season on Friday. The Nationals knocked off the Phillies 2-1. Soto went 1-for-4 with one run, one RBI, and one strikeout. He sports a .281 batting average with six homers and 28 RBI. June has been a good month so far for Soto as he has swatted three home runs. Washington and fantasy gamers have to hope Soto continues with a strong June.
Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto had a big night at the plate in Tuesday's 11-6 victory over the Atlanta Braves. Soto was 1-for-11 coming into the contest but rattled off a three-hit game, including a two-run single and a two-run homer. The slugger's long ball left the bat at an exit velocity of 106.5 MPH and traveled 409 feet. Soto ranks 10th in baseball in expected wOBA, and his Statcast page looks no different than it did during his superb previous three seasons. He makes for an obvious buy-low candidate, as he will undoubtedly be a top-10 fantasy asset the rest of the way.
Things just keep getting better for the Nationals' 22-year-old superstar. After dazzling with a .287/.403/.535 triple-slash line over his first two seasons (266 games), Juan Soto took his game to a level that many people did not think possible. The young phenom slashed .351/.490/.695 in 47 games in 2020, and improved drastically from an already elite strikeout-to-walk ratio, posting a 14.3% strikeout rate with a 20.9% walk rate. His career 16.9% walk rate puts him third in the league since his debut in 2018 (behind only Mike Trout and Bryce Harper), and the career 19.2% strikeout rate checks in three points below the league average. Some speculation about his continued elite home run production is fair given the fact that he has posted ground-ball rates above 50% in two of his three career seasons. He has hit home runs at a rate that appears tough to sustain given his propensity for the ground-ball, but the career exit velocity (90.6 mean, 113.7 max) and barrel rate (12.3%) metrics provide some cozy feelings about his continued power production. Throw in the fact that Soto has 23 steals in his 313 games (a 162-game pace of 12), and you have the profile of a true five-category stud. In on-base percentage leagues, Soto can absolutely be considered with the first overall pick, and he is a no-questions-asked top-five hitter regardless of the format.
