  3. Giovanni Soto is actually skinnier than elite distance runners. A standard size for the top runners is 5’10”, 140 pounds. Soto is damn skinny!

  5. Dodger’s AAA team plays in Albuquerque now not Vegas. Your point still stands though since it’s a hitter’s park.

  6. Soto was 155 on draft day, but according to scouts and coaches has put on about 15-20 pounds in the year since he’s been drafted. 6’4, 170-175 is still ridiculously skinny, but he’s only 19 so he could definitely add some more weight and is tall enough to get a lot of leverage on a fastball or any kind of pitch with downward motion. He seems like a long shot now with his velocity sitting in the high 80’s, but his ground ball rate is around 60% and his body is very projectable.
