It appears that the Reds are considering moving prospect Neftali Soto to third base. Soto was drafted as a shortstop, and the Reds flirted with making him a catcher before shifting him to 1B. With Joey Votto blocking his path to the majors, this isn’t a surprising move.

Soto has always had a big bat, with plenty of power. The worry has always been that his on-base skills weren’t great. I’m not very high on him as a prospect, but others are, and I’m never correct, so that’s a good sign. We’ll see if he gets any reps at third in the near future.
