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: Likely stuck at Triple-A, for now

    Scott allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out six over 3.2 innings for Triple-A Syracuse against Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said earlier this week -- prior to Scott's outing Wednesday -- that the plan was for the right-hander to remain at Syracuse for the time being, per Alex Smith of SNY. "We're still having conversations, but with all the off days we have coming up, we feel like a five-man rotation is what's best for us moving forward," Mendoza said. The 24-year-old Scott has struck out 49 batters in 34 innings with Syracuse this season, though he has also struggled to keep the ball in the yard, both at Triple-A and in his brief time in the majors so far. He should be up again later this season, but the organization seems to be pumping the brakes on an imminent return.

  • Mets' Christian Scott: Excellent in Triple-A start

    Scott gave up one run on two hits and one walk while striking out seven in five innings Wednesday for Triple-A Syracuse. The Mets are keeping Scott on turn while he's waiting at Triple-A to rejoin the big-league rotation. While the Mets have five starters in the rotation currently, Scott figures to re-enter the mix as early as next week.

  • 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.
