Walking With Geovany Soto

By bullpenbrian at 05.21.2010 Leave a comment.

Geovany Soto is flying under the radar….rebounding nicely from a horrific sophomore season.

His plate discipline has improved remarkably…leading all of baseball with 4.34 plate appearances per walk.

His 29 total walks are third-best in both leagues…and he’s drawn at least one walk in 28 of his last 30 games with a plate appearance, which is huge considering Soto managed just 50 free passes all of last season!

Not surprisingly, Soto’s OBP is way up, too (.449)…while fanning just 23 times in 98 at-bats.

Behind the plate Soto’s helped guide the starting staff to 27 quality starts…second-best in the N.L. behind St. Louis’ 32…thrown out 21% of runners attempting to steal…and all while committing zero errors!

But somehow, Soto’s rebound year has gone unnoticed…seemingly due to the downward spirals of Aramis, D-Lee and Carlos Zambrano.

Nonetheless, our catcher is finally back…and living up to the lofty expectations set from his Rookie of the Year season in 2008!
