Player Outlook
A 6-foot-4 righty with pinpoint command, Christian Scott had a 3.4 percent walk rate in 12 starts at Double-A. Scott transitioned from mostly pitching in relief in college to slowly getting stretched out in 2022 and then building up to 87.2 innings as a true starter last season, mostly at Double-A. He was too old (turns 25 in June) and accurate to meet resistance in the lower levels and managed a 2.47 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and a 77:8 K:BB in 62 innings against Double-A hitters. Scott has yet to log a true starter's workload over a full season, but he also hasn't gone through much adversity. He sits at 94 mph with his four-seamer, but the pitch has good life and can touch as high as 98 mph. His slider and changeup are viable second and third offerings, but his fastball can be his top bat-misser thanks to his ability to place it where he wants. Given his age and command, Scott could move quickly to the majors this summer.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Yields two runs in no-decision

    Scott did not factor into the decision in Monday's 8-2 loss to Pittsburgh, allowing two runs on one hit and one walk over 5.2 innings. He struck out three. The rookie right-hander held the Pirates in check, with both runs scoring on a 431-foot homer by Oneil Cruz in the fourth inning. With this effort, Scott lowered his season ERA to 4.15 across 39 innings, but he's struggled to generate punchouts, fanning 30 for a 6.9 K/9. The 25-year-old is currently slated to make his next start against Colorado at home this weekend. However, Scott may lose his rotation spot after the All-Star break, as Kodai Senga (shoulder) is scheduled for a rehab start at Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, lining up the Japanese right-hander to join the Mets soon.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Remaining in rotation

    Scott is scheduled to start Monday's game in Pittsburgh. After being called up from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday to make his first start for the Mets since May 30, Scott took a no-decision in a 7-5 loss to the Nationals, covering 5.2 innings while surrendering four earned runs on six hits and two walks. Despite the underwhelming results, Scott will get at least one more chance to make a case for a more permanent spot in the New York rotation. Through six outings with the Mets this season, Scott has gone 0-2 with a 4.32 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 27:8 K:BB across 33.1 innings.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Unimpressive in return to majors

    Scott surrendered four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two batters over 5.2 innings in a no-decision versus Washington on Wednesday. Scott was called up from Triple-A on Wednesday to log his first big-league start since May 30, but he didn't make much of an impression. The rookie right-hander tied a season-worst mark by allowing four runs, and he struck out a season-low two batters. It was an especially disappointing outcome for Scott after he retired 12 of the first 14 batters he faced -- six of the eight baserunners he allowed came over his final 1.2 frames, and he departed after giving up a three-run homer to Luis Garcia with two outs in the sixth. Despite the overall poor result, there's a good chance Scott will get at least another turn through the rotation with New York not having an off day until the All-Star break and with Tylor Megill recently demoted to the minors.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Summoned ahead of start

    The Mets recalled Scott from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Scott is slated to start Wednesday against the Nationals and he could earn additional opportunities if he pitches well. The rookie right-hander has collected a 3.90 ERA and 25:6 K:BB over 27.2 innings in five starts with the major-league club this season.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Confirmed for Wednesday's start

    Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said that Scott will be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to start Wednesday versus the Nationals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. While Mendoza didn't commit to Scott making additional starts in the majors beyond Wednesday, the opportunity would seem to be there for the rookie right-hander after Tylor Megill was optioned to Triple-A on Sunday. Scott holds a 3.90 ERA and 25:6 K:BB over 27.2 innings in five starts with the big club this season.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Poised for MLB start this week

    Scott is expected to be called up from Triple-A Syracuse to start either Wednesday or Thursday in Washington, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Scott had been listed as Syracuse's starter for Monday, but he was scratched from the outing for non-injury reasons. The Mets have already confirmed David Peterson and Sean Manaea as their starters for the first two games in Washington, so Scott could slot into the rotation as early as Wednesday while New York navigates a stretch of 17 games in 17 days leading into the All-Star break. Scott turned in a 3.90 ERA and 25:6 K:BB over 27.2 innings in five starts earlier this season for New York. He's posted a 2.76 ERA and 55:12 K:BB in 42.1 frames covering nine starts with Syracuse.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Could get call soon

    Mets manager Carlos Mendoza acknowledged Sunday that Scott has a "good chance" of being called up from Triple-A Syracuse to enter the rotation during the team's upcoming stretch of 17 games in 17 days that begins Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. "He's in play," Mendoza said. The Mets have already confirmed their starters through Saturday, so Scott could be called up as early as Sunday's series finale versus the Astros. More likely, the Mets will allow Scott to make another start at Triple-A this week before having him join the big-league rotation for next week's series in Washington. According to Will Sammon of The Athletic, Scott has been working on his sweeper during his latest stint with Syracuse, and over three starts since his demotion in late May, he's posted a 2.08 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 16:3 K:BB in 13 innings.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: No-decision in quality start

    Scott came away with a no-decision in Friday's 8-7 loss to the Giants, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out four. Matched up against Kyle Harrison in a battle of premiere rookies, Scott threw only 54 of 94 pitches for strikes but generated plenty of soft contact aside from a second-inning solo shot by Jorge Soler. It was the third quality start in four outings for the right-hander since his promotion, and Scott will take a 3.97 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 21:5 K:BB through 22.2 innings into his next start, which lines up to come at home next week against the Dodgers.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Stumbles in Miami

    Scott (0-2) took the loss Friday as the Mets fell 8-0 to the Marlins, giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out three. All the damage off the rookie right-hander came in the second inning, with a three-run homer by light-hitting catcher Nick Fortes accounting for most of it. Scott left the mound after throwing 84 pitches (55 strikes), and after a strong big-league debut against the Rays, he's run into trouble against NL East foes. The 24-year-old will stick in the rotation for now, but if his struggles begin to mount, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Mets sent him back to Triple-A. Scott will carry a 4.32 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 17:4 K:BB through 16.2 innings into his next start, which is scheduled to come on the road next week in Cleveland.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: No hard innings cap this season

    The Mets don't have a hard innings limit in mind for Scott this season, despite the fact that he's never thrown more than 87.2 innings in a season dating back to his college days, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. That doesn't mean the 24-year-old right-hander is headed for a 200-inning campaign, of course. Instead, the team will rely on biometric data to make sure Scott's mechanics and pitch quality aren't deteriorating as his workload builds up. "The other way didn't work," pitching coach Jeremy Hefner said this week, referencing the fact that injuries around the league weren't curtailed in the past by focusing on the volume of innings a pitcher threw relative to prior years. "So this is the information in front of us. You try to make the best decision possible with the information that you have." Scott could still be facing a shutdown later this summer if he shows signs of fatigue, but after posting a 3.20 ERA and 36:6 K:BB through 25.1 innings for Triple-A Syracuse before an impressive big-league debut May 4 against the Rays, the Mets will keep him in the rotation as long as he's producing strong results.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Sharp in debut

    Scott did not factor into the decision against the Rays on Saturday, allowing one run on five hits and one walk while striking out six over 6.2 innings. Scott surrendered one run on three consecutive hits to open the bottom of the first before going on to retire the next 12 batters he faced. The 24-year-old right-hander threw 17 first-pitch strikes and generated 18 whiffs in the contest, making a very strong case to stick around in Mets' rotation. Scott currently lines up to toe the rubber against Atlanta at home next week, if he's able to draw another start.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Promotion likely not imminent

    Scott gave up one run over five innings Wednesday for Triple-A Syracuse, striking out 10 batters while walking only one, but the Mets would prefer not to rush his promotion to the majors, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports. The 24-year-old right-hander solidified his status as the organization's top pitching prospect during spring training, and Scott has dominated in his first two Triple-A starts, posting a 19:1 K:BB through nine innings. The Mets also have an opening in the big-league rotation after designating Julio Teheran for assignment Tuesday, but Jose Butto is expected to fill that spot this weekend against the Royals. Butto gave New York a quality start in his first outing with the big club this season, so he's likely to get at least a couple more turns, but if Scott continues to mow down Triple-A hitters, the Mets may have to accelerate the timeline they had in mind for him.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Turns heads Wednesday

    Scott struck out seven batters without walking anyone over four innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins. Getting the start against a Miami lineup that included plenty of experienced major leaguers like Jon Berti, Avisail Garcia and Trey Mancini, Scott frustrated veterans and younger players alike by pounding the upper portion of the strike zone with a fastball that averaged 96.5 mph, per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. The only blemish on his line Wednesday was a third-inning solo homer by Jonah Bride. The 24-year-old right-hander finished last season at Double-A Binghamton, posting a 2.47 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 77:8 K:BB over 62 innings, and while he'll begin 2024 at Triple-A Syracuse, another strong performance to begin the season could put Scott in the big-league rotation some time this summer.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Will be in big-league camp

    Scott will join big-league camp with the Mets to begin spring training, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports. The organization's top pitching prospect is coming off a breakout 2023 season in which he climbed up to Double-A and posted a 2.47 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and dazzling 77:8 K:BB over 12 starts and 62 innings for Binghamton. Scott isn't on the 40-man roster yet after being a fifth-round pick in 2021, but he's still a candidate to bolster the big-league rotation at some point in 2024 if last year's success carries forward into Triple-A.
