Victor Scott
Name: Victor Dwanyne Scott
Born: Feb 12, 2001 in Atlanta, GA United States
High School: McEachern HS
Ht.: 5'0" / Wt.: 190 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 5th round (157th overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2022 (signed for $350,400)
One of the best overall athletes in the Big 12, Scott had a strong summer in the Northwoods League in 2021, where he hit .329/.403/.450 with three home runs, seven doubles and 37 stolen bases. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound speedster had his best offensive season this spring in the Big 12, hitting .278/.397/.454 with six home runs, 12 doubles and 38 stolen bases. Scott has some bat-to-ball skills and doesn’t expand the zone frequently but has below-average power and his strikeout rates with West Virginia are a bit of a concern. While his bat leads to questions, there’s no doubting his top-end running ability and defensive skill in center field. He’s an 80-grade runner who could be a plus or better defender in the outfield, with average arm strength. He’s close to a lock to stick at the position at the next level, which puts less pressure on his bat. Scott should always be a threat to steal bases, and he’s a career 86% (62-for-72) base stealer with West Virginia. He’s got upside as a defensive replacement or fourth outfield type and potentially more if he can find some more impact ability or cut down on his swing and miss.
