Why isn't Mike Soroka more of a household name?

Q: So, while scouting the stat line is never recommended, it just so happens that some of the best prospects happen to do very well in the minor leagues. With that said, I’ve noticed Ian Rice is off to a very nice start, but as a 29th rounder, there is little to nothing to find on him. Is he merely off to a hot streak, or is this a significant bat who was drafted late for other reasons? – Jack C.

Scouting a pitcher who has a shelved pitch, and some notes on Touki Toussaint.

Q: From an evaluation standpoint, when an organization is limiting a pitcher, to say, using his fastball and changeup (the night you’re at the stadium), does your evaluation method change at all, knowing the pitcher couldn’t use his whole pitch set? – Andrew E.

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Sean Reid-Foley, Sandy Alcantara, Austin Meadows, and Joe McCarthy.

Sean Reid-Foley, RHP, Blue Jays (High-A Dunedin): 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R/ER, 3 BB, 12 K.
Word of Reid-Foley’s promotion trickled out during the day on Thursday, along with word that he was starting for Dunedin last night. That first start in High-A didn’t prove to have much of an adjustment, as Reid-Foley torched the opposition, allowing just two hits and striking out 12 while demonstrating just how electric his stuff can be when he’s on top of his game.

This week's mailbag covers how run-environment affects scouting and Tyler O'Neill's breakout.

Q: How much do you discount hitters if they play in a high run scoring environment? Do value extra base hit totals at a lower scale than on-base percentage? It seems to me that high elevation has more of an impact on extra bases (distance, hang time) but it doesn’t help a guy get on base or just base hits at a statistically significant rate. – OJ C.

Questions on Corey Ray, Edwin Diaz's big move, and a trio of struggling youngsters highlight this week's mailbag.

Q: When is the last time we have seen a college hitter like Corey Ray have over 30 SBs, flirt with a .300 ISO and K less than 12% of the time? That package might be unprecedented. Who’s the best MLB comp? Where is his most likely landing spot; still Braves? – Imari L.
