ATF: December 13
- Giovanni Soto (RP, Gigantes de Carolina): 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 0 K. Overall, Soto continues to pitch well in Puerto Rico and he looks to be 100% recovered from the left elbow neuritis which sidelined him for most of the regular season. He has now pitched in 11 games and has a nice 1.46 ERA and has allowed just 7 hits and has 12 strikeouts in 12.1 innings pitched. He has also been equally tough on lefties (.167 AVG, .452 OPS) and righties (.182 AVG, .561 OPS). If you were going to be critical of anything of him this offseason it is his 7 walks.
