Draft best player available. Period. How many elite prospects ever end up being quality major league players? Now you're suggesting (hypothetically assuming they sign Soler) that a 19 year old prospect is something to bank on so they shouldn't draft someone who plays the same position (sort of)?
You don't put up the pretty wall paper until you fix the big honking holes in the wall

Wouldn't you rather have Profar and Machado than Schoop and Machado? Drafting for need is ALWAYS a mistake. You ALWAYS draft best available.
