Juan Soto introduced himself to the baseball world Wednesday night when he hit a pair of home runs for the Nationals against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium in a nationally televised game.
So, just who is Juan Soto? Here are five fast facts about the teenager who’s crushing big-league pitching.
4. Soto http://www.officialhornetsproshops.com/authentic-15-kemba-walker-jersey.html entered the season as the No. 2-ranked prospect in the Nationals’ system. He has zoomed past No. 1 prospect Victor Robles, a 21-year-old outfielder who is injured at Triple-A Syracuse. Once Robles is ready to return to the majors (he made his debut last season), Washington’s outfield future will Josh Bynes Jersey be extremely Kemba Walker Youth Jersey bright.
5. Soto joined some select company with his two-homer performance. At 19 years, 231 days, he became the third-youngest player all time to hit two in a game on the road, according to STATS, Inc. research. The others? Mel Ott, who did it twice, and Ken Griffey Jr., who did it at… the old Yankee Stadium in 1989. Just a couple of Hall of Famers.
Foltynewicz wasn’t bothered by the injury in his bullpen session Saturday. But Atlanta decided to place him on the DL for precautionary reasons, according to a report from MLB.com. He is expected to return and start against the Orioles this weekend, the report says.
A http://www.officialcardinalsfootballauthentic.com/Josh-Bynes-Jersey.html healthy Richburg will help both the pass and run blocking. McGlinchey at first will provide steadiness and increased athleticism on the right side, and he projects well as Staley’s eventual replacement on the left. San Francisco had the No. 21 rushing attack in the NFL last season and also allowed 43 sacks, tied for 10th most. Garoppolo and McKinnon both will be beneficiaries of the upgrades on the line.
The 49ers needed to be great at the tackles and at center in order to make up for their deficiencies at guard. Left guard Laken Tomlinson is a weak link who is unsigned beyond 2018, and right guard Joshua Garnett, a 2016 first-rounder, has struggled to round into shape after missing all of last season with a knee injury. That has opened the door for free-agent journeyman Mike Person, who was with Shanahan in Atlanta, to be a stopgap.
