2018 FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: JUAN SOTO OUTFIELDER WASHINGTON NATIONALS

Victor Robles?  No try Juan Soto as the Howie Kendrick minor league replacement in the outfield for the Washington Nationals starting with Sunday's game.  It was Soto who will be promoted by the team to fill in for the DL'ed Kendrick and prospect hounds are hard at work Sunday making sure he is on their rosters.  As far as Soto is concerned, he certainly earned the call despite being only 19!!!! as he has hit a collective .362 with 14 homers, 52 RBI, and 33 runs scored in his minor league stints across three levels going into his Nats debut.  When digging into Soto's game, he seems like a natural given the fact he doesn't strike out (just a 16.1 K/9 at Double-A) and also draws a ton of walks (12.9 BB/9 at the same level) which speaks to the quality of his batting approach.  Add in the big power and Soto is an immediate add in all fantasy baseball leagues.  Soto for sure benefitted from the fact Robles is on the DL with an elbow injury but still the fact the Nats think he can handle major league pitching at 19 is telling regarding how high they think the ceiling can go.  We are backers of Soto as well since you just don't see an approach like this from someone so young.  Go get him now.
