International Signings Newsbeat

Monday, January 10, 2022

Elian Soto, Juan Soto’s teenage brother, plans to sign with Mets

Elian Soto, 15, a lefty swinger like his older brother, recently posted a video on Instagram with him wearing full Mets gear and the caption “Are you ready for what’s coming this year?” While Mets officials declined comment on the matter, Hector Gomez of Z Digital reported that Elian Soto, an outfielder/third baseman, indeed intends to sign with the Mets during the next international signing period, which is scheduled to begin on January 15. An official from another team confirmed that the league-wide expectation called for Soto to sign with the Mets for a bonus in the $50,000 range.

Like Juan Soto, Elian Soto is being advised by Scott Boras, who declined comment on the matter aside from confirming his representation. Moises de la Mota, the Mets’ supervisor of Latin American scouting, worked for the Nationals when they signed Juan Soto out of the Dominican Republic for $1.5 million.
