Scott Hurst
Name: Scott Andrew Hurst
Born: Mar 25, 1996 in Glendora, CA
High School: Bishop Amat HS, La Puente, Calif.
College: Cal State Fullerton
Ht.: 5'10" / Wt.: 175 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the 3rd round (94th overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2017 (signed for $450,000)
Hurst arrived at Cal State Fullerton after a decorated prep career, including a stint with USA Baseball's 18U team and a star turn in the 2014 Alaska League. He earned significant playing time immediately as a freshman. Tooled up but raw, Hurst battled a back injury and struggled mightily at the plate his first two seasons before clicking as a junior. He hit .339 with 11 home runs, 37 RBI and a 1.022 OPS in the regular season. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Hurst has above-average athleticism and tools, including above-average speed, a plus arm and the ability to play center field. Evaluators still question his feel to hit and power potential thanks to his poor first two seasons. Now that Hurst has at least one positive offensive season under his belt, he is likely to be drafted in the top 10 rounds as an athletic, lefthanded-hitting center fielder who can run and defend.
