  • Gregory Soto Reports To Camp Wednesday

    Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Gregory Soto reported to major-league spring training camp on Wednesday. Soto has been late getting to spring training this year due to visa issues, but he should still have time to get himself ready for Opening Day as he gets set to begin his first year in Philadelphia. The 28-year-old left-hander had a career-high 30 saves for the Detroit Tigers last year. However, he also saw a dip in his strikeout percentage while continuing to be wild with a 12.9 percent walk rate. His move to an extremely crowded back end of the Phillies bullpen makes him very volatile for fantasy purposes given his wildness and likely huge drop in save opportunities.

  • Gregory Soto To Earn $3.925 Million In 2023

    The Philadelphia Phillies and left-handed reliever Gregory Soto avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.925 million on Friday. The Phillies just acquired Soto in a trade with the Detroit Tigers a week ago after finishing up back-to-back All-Star seasons in Detroit. Last year, he went 2-11 but had a career-low 3.28 ERA (3.59 FIP), 1.38 WHIP, career-high 30 saves and 22.8 percent strikeout rate in 60 1/3 innings over a career-high 64 relief appearances. The 27-year-old southpaw has never had a BB/9 under 5.00 in his four major-league seasons, so without nearly as many save opportunities in what is expected to be a closer-by-committee situation in Philly, Soto loses considerable fantasy appeal with his move to the Phillies. Along with Soto, the team will also have Seranthony Dominguez, Craig Kimbrel and Jose Alvarado as options to save games.

  • Phillies Acquire Gregory Soto, Kody Clemens From Tigers

    The Philadelphia Phillies acquired closer Gregory Soto and infielder Kody Clemens from the Detroit Tigers on Saturday in exchange for infielder Nick Maton, outfielder Matt Vierling and catcher Donny Sands. The 27-year-old Soto had a career-high 30 saves for the Tigers in 2022, but his fantasy stock is likely to fall with the move to Philadelphia and their closer-by-committee situation that also includes Craig Kimbrel, Seranthony Dominguez and Jose Alvarado. If the left-handed Soto can't limit his walks (12.9% BB rate last year), he could regress in 2023. Clemens, the son of Roger Clemens, made his major-league debut in 2022 and hit .145 with five homers, 17 RBI and 13 runs scored in 56 games. He'll give the Phillies flexibility on the infield as a bench bat.

  • Phillies Working On Trade For Gregory Soto

    The Philadelphia Phillies are working on a trade for Detroit Tigers relief pitcher Gregory Soto on Saturday, according to sources. The Phillies recently added veteran reliever/closer Craig Kimbrel to their bullpen, but it looks like they may not be done adding. Soto has been an All-Star for the Tigers each of the last two seasons as their primary closer. He had a career-high 30 saves in 2022 while also recording a 3.28 ERA (3.59 FIP), 1.38 WHIP and 22.8 percent strikeout rate in 60 1/3 innings. While the Phillies went with a closer-by-committee approach for the vast majority of the 2022 campaign, Soto would most likely become their primary closer if they were able to land him in a trade. As of right now, Kimbrel, Seranthony Dominguez and Jose Alvarado are the three primary options for saves in Philly's bullpen.
