From BA's chat:

Ben (DC): Juan Soto - Future top prospect?

Ben Badler: He’s already highly regarded in the scouting community and might break into the Top 100 this year. I’m writing up our Gulf Coast League prospects list this year, so I’ve talked to a lot of people about Juan Soto, and I haven’t heard a bad word yet about him as a hitter.

Tom (Philly): Potential of Juan Soto? Eloy Jimenez Potential?

Ben Badler: Soto’s a better hitter already than Eloy was at the same age. That doesn’t mean that in two years he’s necessarily going to be the same level prospect that Eloy is now, but you can’t ask for too much more from a 17-year-old hitter between his swing, approach and emerging power.

Wow. The Nats' scouting of international players has improved by leaps and bounds. It'll be exciting to see if Soto starts his season off at Hagerstown next year.
