2017

2016

Soto got his first taste of the big league life when rosters expanded in September but didn't see any meaningful action in the final month of the season. He did cobble together a pretty effective season at Triple-A Columbus (53.2 innings, 1.193 WHIP, 4.9 BB/9, 8.6 K/9) in a relief role. His control, which dipped to a workable 2.0 BB/9 at Double-A Akron in 2014, is obviously his biggest hurdle as he allowed just 35 hits in 53.2 innings but was undermined by his inability to find the plate at times. He's made strides in recent years since converting over to a relief role after starting his pro career as a starter and the Indians don't have a ton of left-handed relief options. He could crack the Opening Day roster with a strong spring but there's not much here from a fantasy perspective.

2011

Soto came over from Detroit in the Jhonny Peralta trade and opened some eyes at two Single-A stops (1.170 WHIP, 2.93 ERA, 107 K in 113.2 IP) as a 19-year old. He's listed at 6-foot-3 and 155 pounds, so he definitely has room to put on more weight. Soto makes for an intriguing prospect out of Puerto Rico, and he'll likely start the year at High-A Kinston before a potential taste of Double-A.
