Soto to have arthro surgery on rt shoulder monday.

Tweet two:

Shoulder’s been bothering him much of season. Doing it now puts him on track for full health Jan. 1.

Soto finishes the season with a triple-slash line of .280/.393/.497 and OPS of .890, higher than his rookie-season OPS (.868). He hit 17 HR and drove in 53 runs in only 387 plate appearances, one of the better offensive seasons for any catcher in 2010. He had a fine comeback season from his down year in 2009 and should be ready for another good year in 2011.
