Top AAA/AA Hitters - 25 & Under


I have been waiting all year for this moment - Juan Soto has been promoted to AA Harrisburg and is now part of our rankings!

The Washington Nationals signed Soto, born in 1998, back in July of 2015 as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic. He now has 427 career MILB at bats, across five levels of minor league ball and owns a .365/.437/.618 triple slash. Of his 156 hits, 37% of them have gone for extra bases - 29 doubles, 21 home runs and 8 triples. He also has a great eye at the plate, striking out just 59 times compared to 55 walks drawn. Soto has racked up 96 RBi in 115 MILB games played.

Juan suffered numerous injuries last year - a fractured ankle, hamate surgery and a hamstring injury - limited him to just 111 ABs.

The Nationals top OF prospect, Victor Robles, is already at AAA Syracuse and made his MLB debut last year.  He has played in just four games this season, due to a hyperextended elbow.  Robles' career MILB triple slash - .305/.396/.469.  

Could (should?) the rise of Soto/Robles prevent the Nationals from signing Bryce Harper to a long term, $300-400 mil contract?
