Today we turn our attention to Braden Scott of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.
Braden’s story is one that really makes you cheer for the young man. An underdog who was playing independent baseball and signed to a minor league contract as a free agent. Scott is the first player from Shakamak to sign on with a major league organization, something he did back in February. Scott has moved up the ladder, starting the season with the Dunedin Blue Jays where be posted a 2-0 record with a 0.68ERA, 2SV, 4BB, and 2K in 13.1IP (7 appearances).
On June 10th, Scott earned a promotion to Vancouver. He was only a member of the C’s bullpen for a week, making one scoreless appearance where he struck out the side, before joining the New Hampshire Fisher Cats bullpen on June 18th.
On Saturday, the 24-yr-old lefty reliever entered the game in the 6th inning, following Luis Quinones. Scott retired the side, striking out the first two batters he faced. In the 7th, Braden put himself in a bind when he surrendered two singles to open the frame. No problem, the lefty got out of the inning with a flyout, K, and K. The SeaWolves provided no trouble for Braden Scott in the 8th as he retired the side on strikes.
Braden Scott faced 11 batters, striking out 7 on 36 pitches, 28 strikes. Since joining the Fisher Cats, Scott owns a 3-2 record with a 5.73ERA in 21 games. He’s issued 24 walks and 37 hits over 37.2 innings for a 1.62WHIP, striking out 57 batters. Don’t let the numbers fool you, Braden Scott has turned things around since struggling in July (8.71ERA and .268BA).
He’s made 3 relief appearances in August, throwing 8.1 innings, walking 2 batters, and striking out 20 while posting a 4.32ERA.
The Moreno and Martinez Show
Moreno remains out of the lineup. In his last 10 games, Moreno is batting .200 with 5 runs scored, a HR, 4RBI, and 2SB. In 49 games played, Gabriel owns a .299 batting average with 11 doubles, 2 home runs, 29RBI, 6SB, and a .772OPS.
The Blue Jays’ top infield prospect, was at the hot corner, batting 3rd for the Fisher Cats. He went 0-for-4 with a K. In his last 11 games, Martinez is batting .190 with 3 runs scored, 5RBI, 2 doubles, and a HR. In 93 games, O is batting .210 with 25HR, 15 doubles, 64RBI, 6SB, and a .747OPS.
