First and foremost, I wish Juan Soto the best and quickest recovery from COVID. Fantasy-wise, this is a huge blow to any roster with Soto. The dude is a stud and missing any period of time in the 60-game season is not good. It’s unclear right now who’ll likely take Soto’s starting spot in the outfield.
