Underneath the NYSEG Stadium concourse on Saturday, avoiding the pouring rain, Adam Scott leaned in to answer a question, as if to impart deeper knowledge. But then, before he got to the punchline, he admitted he was stating the obvious.
“There’s a big picture, which is make it to the major leagues,” Scott said. “Obviously everybody would say that. You know that I would want that. Everybody knows playing minor league baseball.”
A little more than a year ago, the former Canandaigua star was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the fourth round of the 2018 MLB Draft. He’s risen quickly through the minors, earning a promotion to Double-A Akron on June 20. Scott has worked 19.1 consecutive scoreless innings and won three of his four starts with the Rubberducks. For a player who never considered himself Section V’s best, he’s quickly put himself in the discussion of the area’s best professionals.
