What makes Juan Soto so special and unique according to Washington Nationals’ hitting coach Kevin Long...

Juan Soto didn’t travel with the team for the Grapefruit League opener in Jupiter, FL over the weekend, but he was supposed to make his 2021 debut in Monday’s home opener in West Palm Beach.

He tried to get some swings in in a live BP session on Sunday, however, and fouled a ball off his right foot, so he didn’t play in the second game of the spring either.

Soto, 22, should, however, be good to go in Wednesday’s matchup with the Miami Marlins in WPB.

“He worked out today, he’ll play tomorrow,” Washington Nationals’ skipper Davey Martinez told reporters when he spoke on a Zoom call on Tuesday afternoon.
