Baseball America Prospect Report -- September 25, 2018



Monday's Stars

Ronald Guzman, 1B, Rangers. Guzman hit his 16th home run and his 18th double of the season yesterday. Guzman's season overall has been below the bar teams look for in a first baseman (.233/.305/.412), but he is a 23-year-old so there's hope there is more ahead of him.

Juan Soto, LF, Nationals. Soto went 2-for-4 with his 21st home run. Soto's season isn't over yet, but it can be argued that it's the best by a teenager ever. At the worst, it's one of the two or three best ever by a teenager. Here's how Soto's season stacks up against all teenagers with 300 or more plate appearances since 1901 (thanks to Fangraphs leaderboard). Home runs (21): third Batting average (.295): fourth. Isolated power (.222): second. OBP (.406): first. Slugging percentage (.516): second. wOBA (.392): second. Walks (74): first.

Shohei Ohtani, DH, Angels. Ohtani hit his 21st home run of the season yesterday. Ohtani's power production has improved since he was shut down as a pitcher. He is averaging a home run every 16.5 plate appearances and slugging .574 since July 1.
