Minor League Barometer: Down on the Farm

Juan Soto rode his hot start all the way from A-ball to the big leagues. The wunderkind for the Nationals exploded onto the MLB scene this past Monday, slugging a three-run home run in his first start in the majors. The 19-year-old has had a transcendent minor league season; Soto slashed .362/.462/.757 in 39 games across three levels. He bashed 14 home runs, drove home a staggering 52 runs, and tallied more walks (29) than strikeouts (28) during that span.
