Player Outlook
All's well that ends well? Juan Soto was hitting .202 with five homers and 11 RBI as the calendar flipped to May, making many fantasy managers rather nervous watching their first round foundational pick get off to such a poor start. Soto went on to turn things around, hitting 30 homers, driving in 98, and hitting .290 for the rest of the season to finish as the 16th most valuable fantasy player in our standard rankings. He was one of three qualified hitters with more walks than strikeouts in 2023 and has still not fallen below the .400 mark for a season on-base percentage in his entire career. The batting average has taken a tumble since the 2020-2021 season but the volume is still in place for the other statistics. After getting traded to the Yankees for his final year before free agency, Soto will gain a massive home-park power boost, as Yankee Stadium rates as the second best park for lefty power, per Baseball Savant's park factors, while San Diego rated as the fifth-worst such park. There will be immense pressure on him to produce in pinstripes as his free agency looms next winter.

Soto's average stands at .316 with a .980 OPS, including eight homers, 28 RBI, 23 runs and four steals over 136 at-bats during his first season in the Bronx. The RBI were his first over five games in May.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Swipes two bags Wednesday

    Soto went 1-for-3 with a walk and a pair of stolen bases in Wednesday's 2-0 win against the Orioles.

He was also caught trying to steal third following his second theft. Soto tied a career-high mark with 12 stolen bases last season, and he's on pace to surpass that through 32 games this year. The star outfielder has nabbed four thefts so far while adding a .325/.439/.575 slash line, eight home runs, 25 RBI and 22 runs.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Hits seventh homer

    Soto went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk during Friday's loss against the Brewers. Soto went deep against Colin Rea in the first inning to put the Yankees ahead early, but he was unable to score the other two times he reached base Friday, as the Yankees fell short in extra innings. The 25-year-old outfielder has now homered twice in his last three contests and has driven in 23 RBI in just 27 games -- further proof that he is one of the most lethal hitters in the big leagues.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Goes yard again Friday

    Soto went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 5-3 win over the Rays.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Belts third homer

    Soto went 1-for-7 with a three-run home run, three walks and two total runs in Saturday's doubleheader sweep of Cleveland.

The long ball was Soto's third this season, and he's added 15 RBI through 15 games. The star outfielder is off to a strong start to his tenure with New York, slashing .333/.458/.544 with a 14:10 BB:K through 72 plate appearances. He has at least one hit in six of his past seven outings.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Swipes first bag as Yankee

    Soto went 1-for-4 with a walk, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Marlins. It's the first steal of the year for the 25-year-old outfielder, and he extended his run-scored streak to four games.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Clubs three-run homer

    Soto went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run, double and a walk during the Yankees 7-0 win over Miami on Monday. Soto's second home run as a Yankee came off Marlins' lefty Jesus Luzardo and plated three to put the icing on a six-run fourth inning. The three RBI gives Soto 10 on the young season while the two hits give him five multi-hit efforts and raises his average to .357 through 11 games. Soto's insertion into the two-spot of the lineup has proven thus far to be as potent as the Yankees envisioned when they traded for him from San Diego in the offseason.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Continues hot start

    Soto went 3-for-5 with an RBI in Sunday's 4-3 victory against Houston.

The slugger has notched a home run and four RBI while recording more walks (three) than strikeouts (two) through 20 plate appearances. The hot start has helped propel the Yankees to a 4-0 record to begin the campaign.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Swats first homer as Yankee

    Soto went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Astros. Soto's first long ball as a Yankee wasn't the most aesthetically pleasing blast, as he slashed one to the opposite field and into the Crawford Boxes. It was a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning, though, which is certainly the most important thing. Soto has reached base in 60 percent of his plate appearances over the first three games of the season.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Knocks three hits

    Soto went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a walk in Friday's win over Houston. Soto drew a bases-loaded walk in the seventh inning before drilling a double in the eighth. The star outfielder has reached base seven times in his first 10 plate appearances as a Yankee. Through two games, Soto has posted a 3:1 BB:K as he continues to be among the league's most disciplined hitters.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Swinging hot bat in spring training

    Soto is slashing .667/.727/1.889 with three home runs, seven RBI and a 2:1 BB:K through 11 Grapefruit League plate appearances. It's been a rousing beginning for the newest Yankees star, as five of his six hits so far this spring have gone for extra bases, with three leaving the yard. He's been hitting second in the batting order for New York, with Aaron Judge slotting behind him in the No. 3 spot. Soto smashed a career-high 35 homers for the Padres last season, and given the upgrade in home park and his performance so far this spring, there's ample reason to believe that the slugger can challenge that mark in his first year in pinstripes.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Likely two-hole hitter

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said in an interview Friday with Foul Territory that Soto will "probably" bat second this season. Aaron Judge often hits second for the Yanks, but Boone is leaning toward Judge following Soto in the three spot. The skipper didn't name a leadoff hitter, although he indicated he'd like to see DJ LeMahieu win that job. Boone also mentioned that Alex Verdugo and Gleyber Torres could be in the mix to bat leadoff.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: Signs record-breaking deal

    Soto signed a one-year, $31 million contract with the Yankees on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. The deal is the largest ever on a one-year contract for an arbitration-eligible player, as Soto's salary will surpass Shohei Ohtan's mark in 2023 by $1 million. This could be the first step in the Yankees' hopes to keep Soto with the club for the long term, though earlier in the offseason, general manager Brian Cashman said there had not been any extension talks. Barring any long-term agreement between the sides, Soto will hit free agency next offseason.

  • Yankees' Juan Soto: No extension talks

    Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that he has not had any talks with Soto regarding a contract extension, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The revelation comes as no surprise, as the full expectation for a while now has been that Soto and his agent, Scott Boras, plan to test out free agency next offseason. Soto famously rejected a 15-year, $440 million contract extension offer from the Nationals in 2022, which led to him being traded the first time to the Padres. The 25-year-old will surely be looking for at least that much next winter, although a lot can happen between now and then.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: Trade to Yankees nearly finalized

    The trade sending Soto to the Yankees is "close to being finalized," Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports. Morosi says it will be Michael King, Drew Thorpe and at least two additional players shipped to the Padres. At this point, it seems as if the two sides have agreed on the players and perhaps all that stands between the trade being completed is a review of medicals. Soto would play right field in the Bronx, with Aaron Judge shifting to center field and Alex Verdugo handling left field.

  • Padres' Juan Soto: Swats two homers

    Soto went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI and a walk in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Giants. Soto opened the scoring with a solo shot in the first inning and added a two-run blast in the seventh. The outfielder has hit well late in the season, going 25-for-54 (.463) with seven homers and 23 RBI over his last 14 games.
