Scott got the ninth inning after manager Brandon Hyde said that Scott and Hunter Harvey would get save chances after Cole Sulser blew another save over the weekend. Scott is a groundball pitcher who induces whiffs, and is worth monitoring for potential saves.

Scott has 17 strikeouts in 13 and 1/3 innings to go with a 2.03 ERA and 0.98 WHIP. If holds are a category in your league, you should pick him up with the prospect of him getting save chances as well. Otherwise, he's useful for ratios in deeper standard leagues.

Scott has had one bad outing this year, but has been incredible otherwise. He now has a 2.08 ERA, tiny 0.92 WHIP, and 17 strikeouts in 13 innings. Pick him up in all saves/holds leagues and enjoy the four-category value.

Scott got the call to save the game because Cole Sulser had extended himself the previous day. While Scott has solid ratios (2.45 ERA and 0.82 WHIP) to go with a strong strikeout rate, the lefty likely won't see many save chances going forward.
