Juan Soto News
Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto smacked a mammoth 454-foot homer off Jon Gray Sunday, helping his team to a 3-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies. It was his only hit in four at-bats. Soto manages to continue to contribute across the board, despite the fact that opposing pitchers seem determined to pitch around him. With a .356/.522/.614 slash line in his last 30 games, Soto is a rare set-it-and-forget-it player for fantasy managers.
Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto reached base four times again Friday against the Colorado Rockies, going 1-for-2 with three walks and a run scored. He has now reached base four times in a game eight separate times in the month of September out of 16 games. The next time he does so he will break Barry Bonds' record for the most such games in a season. Soto is slashing an outrageous .315/.460/.526 on the season and is a fantasy monster, especially in sabermetrically-inclined leagues.
Washington Nationals outfielder Juan Soto went 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI during an 8-6 loss to the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. The 22-year-old has been red hot the past 30 days, posting six homers, 23 RBI, 24 R, and three stolen bases with a .350/.514/.590 line across 100 at-bats. While the slugger didn't return the top-five value fantasy managers were seeking in the first half of the season, Soto has more than made up for it in the second half and has the upside to deliver hardware for patient managers. Soto will be a top-five pick in redraft leagues next year, and those fortunate enough to have him secured in dynasty formats have a future MVP on their hands.
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.
