Ken Rosenthal at TheAthletic:

The Nats were wise not to wait around for Donaldson, signing five free agents — second baseman Starlin Castro, infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, first baseman Eric Thames and relievers Will Harris and Daniel Hudson — over a six-day span last week. But you know what? They still need Donaldson. Or Bryant. Or some other middle-of-the-order force if they wish to avoid Soto, one of the game’s great young stars, walking 150 times.

I'm sure he earned more in OPS leagues. Remember the numbers here are BA leagues and while .282 isn't bad, it's the 108 walks that juice that OPS.

Hard to believe a .949 OPS only earned him $30 in 2019 5x5.  Wow.  And .923 only $23 in 2018?  I know, 414 ABs.  But wow.

Speaking of 21 year olds (see Vlad Jr. and Tatis Jr. threads), through his age 20 season, his top 10 comps on B-R.com, along with their estimated RC+ through age 20.

Tony Conigliaro 135

Mickey Mantle* 141

Frank Robinson* 143

Bryce Harper 129

Mike Trout 170

Ken Griffey Jr.* 120

Mel Ott* 148

Vada Pinson 115

Al Kaline* 120

Cesar Cedeno 103

FWIW, Soto has a 143 RC+ putting him in the same area as Mantle, Robinson, and between Conigliaro and Ott.  It also puts Trout in another context.
