interesting, hadn't heard this before

Opening a spot for Hayhurst, pinch-hitter Brian Myrow was optioned to Triple-A; Myrow had gone 3-for-21 with two walks and a home run. In Triple-A, the 31-year-old controlled the strike zone and compiled a .455 on-base percentage.

But even as Myrow thrived in Triple-A, many scouts rated his bat speed a potential liability against major league pitching. Myrow was among the players the Padres protected on their 40-man roster two years ago. A Single-A pitcher the Padres exposed, Joakim Soria, esteemed by Padres scouts and field personnel, was drafted by the Royals for $50,000 and has become a major league All-Star.

I have never heard about this before, interesting .... and not good. Really depressing and it makes you wonder about our direction sometimes.
