Monday's Stars

Juan Soto, OF, Nationals. On the first pitch he saw in his first start in the big leagues, Soto crushed an opposite-field home run. He also added a single and showed that even as a 19-year-old, he's not overawed by the big league experience.

Eloy Jimenez, OF, White Sox. Jimenez is moving on a more traditional timetable than Soto, but he also is mashing. After arriving in Birmingham late because of a minor spring training injury, Jimenez hit his eighth home run of the season last night in his 31st game of the year.

M.J. Melendez, C, Royals. Melendez has gotten off to an outstanding start to his first full pro season. The catcher went 3-for-6 with two doubles and a home run yesterday. The athletic catcher is now hitting .271/.326/.627.

Gleyber Torres, 2B, Yankees. Torres had his best day as a big leaguer with a pair of home runs yesterday. Torres now has six home runs and a .317/.380/.573 slash line in 24 MLB games. He's given the Yankees yet another youth infusion in a lineup filled with home grown power.

Matt Krook, LHP, Rays. Krook still walks way too many batters (6 BB/9 this season), but the insane movement he gets on his fastball can also make him unhittable. Krook struck out seven batters in three scoreless innings of relief yesterday even though he threw strikes with just 52 percent of his pitches.
