Drafted in the 15th round (460th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2010
Elliott Soto is one of the best defensive shortstops in the draft, with plus range, hands and arm strength. He can make any throw from any angle, and he can make the routine plays as well as the spectacular. But scouts don't have much faith in his bat. The 5-foot-9, 155-pound Soto lacks strength and hit .194/.268/.218 with wood bats in the Cape Cod League last summer and .297/.388/.431 with metal this spring. He's an average runner, so almost all of his contributions are going to come on defense.
