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: 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: Fans nine in Triple-A debut

    Scott allowed three runs on five hits -- including two home runs -- over four innings against Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday. He struck out nine without issuing a walk. Making his first career start at the Triple-A level, Scott cruised through three frames but was touched up for homers by Everson Pereira and Jeter Downs in the fourth inning. The 9:0 K:BB offers a glimpse at why scouts and prospect evaluators are high on the 24-year-old right-hander, especially on the heels of his strong showing in the Grapefruit League. There was some talk that Scott could get the call to Queens earlier than expected due to injuries in the Mets' rotation, but the team signed Julio Teheran to a one-year, major-league contract Wednesday, which likely pushes Scott's big-league debut to later this summer.

  • 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 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.
