Stott has been promoted to Double-A Reading, Tom Housenick of The Morning Call reports. Scott got off to a strong start this season with High-A Jersey Shore, slashing .288/.453/.548 with five homers and 10 RBI across 95 plate appearances. His solid play has earned him a promotion to Double-A Reading, where he will debut Tuesday.
Stott will join the Phillies at spring training as part of the team's minor-league mini-camp. Stott won't technically be part of big-league camp but will get to be around the major-league team for a few weeks. He's still a year or two away from joining the team on a permanent basis, however, as he's played just 48 professional games, none of which have come in full-season ball.
The Phillies added Stott to their 60-man roster pool Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports. As a 22-year-old who has yet to play above the rookie-ball level, Stott probably ranks low on the list for a potential promotion to the big-league roster in 2020. Instead, his addition to the roster pool will merely allow the Phillies to track his development more carefully in simulated games at their alternate training site since minor-league baseball won't be played this season.
