Drafted in the 14th round of the 2010 Draft by the Astros out of Riverside High School in Greer, South Carolina, Jordan Scott is a line-drive hitter who uses the whole field well. He reach Double-A Corpus Christi for four games in 2014, but spent the majority of his time in Single-A Lancaster where he batted .297 with 21 extra base hits and 35 runs scored.
Appearing in 110 games in 2012, Scott drove in 43 runs on 13 doubles. He batted .230 but his patience at the plate earned him 57 walks and showed his selective when hitting. Scott has a great swing and can cover all the outfield positions with ease but played the majority of his games in left field. He reads the hit well off the bat and takes quick and efficient routes to the ball. His speed and quick reactions make him at the very least an above-average defender in left field, with the potential for more as he develops.
Scott currently resides in Dallas, TX with teammates Kyle Redinger and Michael Werner. He’ll be a great addition to the Spirits on both sides of the plate and the team looks forward to his contributions.
