Padres OF Juan Soto finished 1-for-4 with a solo home run in San DIego's 5-2 win over the White Sox Saturday.
Soto took White Sox starter Dylan Cease in the first inning to get things started for the Padres. It was his 27th home run of the season. Despite hitting just .243 this season, Soto has provided a ton of value for those in leagues using OBP as his sits at .403, among the best in baseball. Depending on your league settings, Soto was a bit overvalued this season though.
Juan Soto chipped in with a couple hits in San Diego's 5-0 win over the Cardinals Tuesday. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored.
No surprise here. Soto reached base three more times, one via base on balls. He extends his major league lead in that category having earned 126 walks this season. After a really tough stretch since coming to San Diego, the talented outfielder is seeing the ball well right now. He has three multi-hit games in his last four. Perfect timing for fantasy championships.
Juan Soto picked up three hits, including a double and a homer in San Diego's 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks Sunday.
This was just Soto's fourth home run as a member of the Padres after hitting 21 with Washington this year. In fact, he's hitting just .221 with San Diego. However, he still has a ridiculous .386 on-base percentage during that time having accrued 34 walks already. Hopefully he can help fantasy managers in their championship and this is the sign that it will happen.
Juan Soto had a solid night at the plate Friday. He finished 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI in a 12-3 win over the Diamondbacks Friday.
Soto was in a massive funk entering play Friday. Dating back to August 29th, the superstar outfielder was just 3-for-50 (0.60 BA). It must have been nice for Bob Melvin and fantasy managers alike to see Soto get some good wood on the baseball finally.
Juan Soto (shoulder) said that he "definitely" expects to play Friday after leaving Wednesday's game with a shoulder bruise.
Soto was hit by a pitch on the shoulder and had to be removed from Wednesday's game but seems confident he'll be able to play Friday after an off day Thursday. He has really struggled to start the month of September, hitting .118 with zero XBH through 22 plate appearances.
