How Juan Soto plans to turn grounders into better production
Again, maybe calling it a problem is too harsh. The results are from a very limited sample. It’s likely, given his knack for fast adjustments, Soto will nail down a fix soon. Here, though, are how his plate appearances ended across a full series at the Arizona Diamondbacks this past weekend: walk, groundout to third, strikeout, flyout to left, grounder up the middle, single on the ground, groundout to second, groundout up the middle (for a double play), walk, single on the ground, single on the ground, groundout to short, walk, groundout up the middle (for another double play), groundout to first.
