I don’t know enough about scouting to verify the premise, but if Hostetler truly is our best scout, then it would make sense to have him evaluating talent in other organizations in anticipation of the Sox beginning to make trades for some of them, and/or identifying tendencies/weaknesses of potential opponents.

Presumably Hostetler has some familiarity with players drafted by other organizations between 2015 and 2019, since the Sox would have scouted many of those players for potential consideration for the draft.
