Up-the-middle talent is always at a premium, and that pushes players such as Soto up some draft boards. A shortstop who switch-hits, he was Florida International's backup plan after Panthers recruit Manny Machado became a cinch first-round pick. Soto isn't physical at 5-foot-8 but can swing the bat and is an excellent defender at short. His draft profile rose when he showed improved speed, going from an average runner to a plus runner and turning in 4.05-second times to first base from the left side. Soto has soft hands and first-step quickness at short, though his arm is fringe-average for the position. He's a solid athlete but may not be strong enough to go out and hit with wood.
