Scott’s 2022 season was the best of his collegiate career. He slashed .278/.397/.454 with a career high in home runs (6), doubles (12) and stolen bases (38) to go along with it.
He still has two years of eligibility remaining. If he were to go unsigned by the Cardinals, he could return to West Virginia.
