Drafted in the 5th round (142nd overall) by the New York Mets in 2021 (signed for $350,000)
Scott was eligible as a sophomore in 2020 but went unselected even after posting a 1.20 ERA in seven appearances and 15 innings, with solid strikeout and walk rates. This spring, Scott continued to be a reliable arm for the Gators out of the bullpen, leading the team in appearances (26) while posting a 3.00 ERA. Coaches said Scott took a step forward with his fastball command during the fall and he posted the lowest walk rate of his career this spring (1.5 BB/9) while sitting in the 93-95 mph range and running the pitch into the upper 90s at its peak. Scott is mostly a fastball/slider pitcher and his breaking ball comes in hard in the mid 80s. The pitch shows some solid action when he lands it down and to his glove side, but it also backs up on him fairly regularly when he leaves it up in the zone. Scott also throws a low-to-mid-80s changeup that looks like a solid pitch when he hits on it, but he rarely uses it. Scott has significant effort in his delivery and an aggressive head whack in his finish that he’s had since his high school days and because of that and the fact he’s pitched primarily out of the bullpen for his career at Florida, most teams see him as a reliever at the next level.
