9 strikeouts in 16 ab’s. Cause for concern.

TL;DR - He cant hit breaking stuff and last season was likely an outlier.

Nats need to offer him an extension like his buddy Acuna got, ASAP.

Majestic shot.

Soto’s at bats are always fun to watch. Even when he strikes out, he usually makes the pitcher work. He knows the strike zone better than the umpires.

I will be heading to Potomac to get a Childish Bambino bobblehead this year (July 20).

Soto is listed as pretty much the smallest guy (other than Eaton) on the roster at 6'1 185.  http://m.nationals.mlb.com/roster/

There is no way that is close to true is it?  He looks at least 2-3 inches taller and 40 pounds heavier than Robles side by side.

It's pretty accurate, from standing near him.  The listing fudging there is more Robles' height, which should be more like 5'10 or 5'11.  I wouldn't be surprised if the weights are closer, though.  Robles is pretty jacked.

I don't know... he looks a lot closer to Harper dimensions than he does to Robles, and I think he's grown this year.

Funny. I've always thought Robles looked a little slight to me.

Heard multiple people say up close Robles is built like a linebacker. The baseball uniform masks that somewhat.

I'm just telling ya what I've heard...maybe a college linebacker. Point being he's built like a brick house.
