WATCH: Soto goes deep in first at-bat after Home Run Derby originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

Juan Soto hasn't lost his power swing at the plate following the Home Run Derby. 

In his first at-bat since taking down Shohei Ohtani and launching the longest homer in derby history, Soto went deep off Padres pitcher Chris Paddack.

Soto has been his usual productive self in the box for the Nationals this season, except for far fewer home runs than expected. The young star had 11 homers at the All-Star break after hitting 13 in 47 games last season and 34 in 2019. 

Could the Home Run Derby have kickstarted a Soto power surge in the second half of the season? If that ends up being the case, the Nats lineup could become devastating by the time Kyle Schwarber returns from injury.
