BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2011-07-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Neftali Soto's power allow him to become an every day big leaguer? Or is he going to be a free swinging power guy (95 K/344 BB career) and fizzle?
(Chris from Ohio)
Well, you clearly see the problem yourself there, and he's a first-base only player. The power is very very real, however, which gives him a shot to overcome his weaknesses. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-08-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, I was hoping you might be able to tell me what the scouts are saying about Neftali Soto, he seems to be tearing it up for Dayton?
(Shane from Miami, OH)
Bat is very real. Cannon for an arm. Not a shortstop in the end, but still a very real prospect. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, What are your thoughts for Neftali Soto long-term, does he stick at 3B? How impressive has been thus far?
(Jason from Cincy)
He's been crazy impressive. I was able to recently speak to a scout who saw him at Dayton and he said he just really stood out on that team. The bat is outstanding, he has good power potential, but he does need to improve defensively. That said, on a tools level, he fits well at 3rd, because the arm is outstanding. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)i do not see any stats for a group of Puerto Rican prospects who all got drafted last year - Angel Morales, Neftali Soto,Emmanuel Quiles and Reynaldo Navarro - is there some kind of visa issue or something else that is stopping these guys from playing?
(straymond from toronto )
Um. They're from Puerto Rico -- they're full U.S. citizens. They're also all very young and a bit raw, so they're being held beck for short-season leagues. (Kevin Goldstein)
