Connor Bryant Scott (born October 8, 1999) is an American professional baseball outfielder in the Miami Marlins organization.[1]

Career[edit]

Scott attended Henry B. Plant High School in Tampa, Florida,[2][3] where he played four years of varsity baseball.[4] In 2018, his senior year, he struggled with a hamstring injury, forcing him to miss three weeks. In 20 games, he batted .526 with five home runs, along with pitching to a 3-0 win-loss record and a 2.13 earned run average in 23 innings.[3] He committed to attend the University of Florida to play college baseball for the Florida Gators.[5]

The Miami Marlins selected Scott with the 13th overall pick in the 2018 MLB draft.[6] He signed for a $4,038,200 signing bonus, rather than attend Florida,[7] and made his professional debut with the Gulf Coast Marlins of the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League (GCL).[8] After 27 games in the GCL, he was promoted to the Greensboro Grasshoppers of the Class A South Atlantic League.[9] In 50 games between the two teams, Scott batted .218 with one home run and 13 runs batted in.[10]

Scott began 2019 with the Clinton LumberKings of the Class A Midwest League.[11]
