Mechanics: 3/4 arm slot; premium arm speed; mild stab with deep arm action; front shoulder can open up; falls off with max effort; clean landing; delivery can get out of sync.
Aberdeen IronBirds (Short Season, Orioles)
40; Middle Relief
T98 2x; downhill plane; life; mild deception; deception plays up against LHH; command is inconsistent but mechanics can be cleaned up enough to allow more consistency.
Replicates arm speed; short and tight with bite; inconsistent release point; pitch can flatten; improvements in release points and command can allow pitch to play average.
Scott is a power arm that has the potential to work in the late innings of a game. The FB/SL combo is efficient and both pitches have deception against LHH. The command and mechanics are inconsistent, but there has been slight improvement in all three of my viewings this season. The risk remains high due to limited innings and command.
Round Drafted: 6th round, 2014.
Why: Power arm that profiles as a back-end reliever.
