Showed a slight lift to the ball with a two handed finish.  More flyballs than line drives and groundballs with a peak exit velocity of 90 MPH via Trackman. Displayed plus barrel awareness and control. Strong and quick twitch lower half.

Soto possesses a lean and athletic frame at 5-foot-10, 165-pounds. Ran the 60 yard dash in 7.21 seconds and recorded a top exit velo of 84 MPH. Balanced stance, slight bend in the knees. Hands start by his back shoulder and have minimal movement. Small stride, gives him a wider base. Simple, compact stroke. No unnecessary actions, works right to the ball. Plenty of hard contact throughout. Behind the plate recorded a top velo of 68 MPH and pop times ranging from 2.37-2.47 seconds. Soft hands. Makes his transfer low, by his midsection.

2/15/21

5-foot-10, 165lb athletic frame with room to add strength, 7.57 runner. At the plate, he starts just outside shoulder width with his feet with hands pushed back by the ear. Uses a small toe tap into a slam of the front foot, gets the foot down and snaps the upper half into plane. Creates hard hit balls in the air to his pull aid easily through the big turn in the shoulders. Posted an 87 MPH max exit velo. Behind the dish, Soto popped a 2.12-2.25 matched with a 68 MPH arm strength from the crouch. Soto sits low in the crouch and moves directly out of it with a small push on his back foot to propel himself to the target. Soft hands that receive into the chest with a quick exchange time.
