  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Moved down to Triple-A

    The Cardinals optioned Scott to Triple-A Memphis on Sunday.

    Scott had a tough first month in the majors, as he attempted to make the jump from Double-A Springfield to the Cardinals. He slashed .085/.138/.136 with six runs, two RBI and two steals while striking out 15 times and walking twice over 65 plate appearances to start the season. A move back to the minors will hopefully be what Scott needs to find his swing again. In a corresponding move, St. Louis recalled catcher Pedro Pages from Triple-A Memphis.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Sitting again Saturday

    Scott is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers.

    Scott returned to the starting lineup Friday, but he finished 0-for-3 and has not reached base since April 12 against the Diamondbacks. He's had a rough start to his major-league career, slashing .085/.138/.136 while striking out 15 times over 65 plate appearances this season. Mike Siani starts in center field Saturday, batting ninth against Brewers left-hander DL Hall.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Sits out third time in four games

    Scott is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Oakland.

    Scott has now been out of the lineup for two games in a row and in three of the last four contests. Mike Siani has handled center field in all three instances. Scott has gone just 5-for-65 at the plate to begin his major-league career, and it's possible he's losing the grip on his starting job in center field.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Sits again Tuesday

    Scott is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Oakland, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Scott started the first 15 games of the season but now finds himself on the bench for the second time in St. Louis' past three contests. Mike Siani will start in center field and bat ninth against lefty JP Sears.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: First break of 2024

    Scott will not start Sunday against the Diamondbacks, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Scott has started all 15 games this year for the Cardinals, but Mike Siani will man center field Sunday in Arizona. With center fielders Tommy Edman (wrist) and Dylan Carlson (shoulder) both sidelined, the rookie Scott has gotten a hefty workload, though he's only produced five hits from 57 plate appearances.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Nabs second steal

    Scott went 0-for-3 with a stolen base and a hit-by-pitch in Monday's 5-3 extra-inning loss to the Phillies.

    Scott continues to start in center field, but he's hitting just .077 and getting on base at a .163 clip through his first 11 games. That's not good enough to let his speed shine on the basepaths. He's added a 2:11 BB:K, two doubles and six runs scored through 43 plate appearances. Tommy Edman (wrist) was cleared for baseball activities Monday but still has a long ramp-up period ahead, while Dylan Carlson (shoulder) is not close to a return. Scott may be at risk of losing playing time when Lars Nootbaar (ribs) is activated from the injured list, which could come later this week.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Leading off in home opener

    Scott will start in center field and bat leadoff Thursday against the Marlins.

    The Cardinals are hamstrung by injuries right now, with normal leadoff hitter Brendan Donovan (elbow) and Willson Contreras (hand) unavailable Thursday and Lars Nootbaar (ribs) and Tommy Edman (wrist) still on the injured list. The domino effect is Scott getting a test drive in the leadoff spot for the home opener, even as the Marlins are starting a lefty in Ryan Weathers. Scott is 3-for-25 with one stolen base in his first seven major-league games.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Logs steal in debut

    Scott went 0-for-3 with a stolen base in Thursday's 7-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    Scott got aboard on an error in the fifth inning and immediately showcased the speed that has had him on the fast track to the majors. He'll still need to show his bat is up to the challenge now that the games count. Scott hit .317 in spring training, but the regular season is a different beast. He'll get an extended audition while Tommy Edman (wrist) and Dylan Carlson (shoulder) are out. Scott shouldn't be too far away from a full-time major-league gig, but it wouldn't be surprising if he gets time at Triple-A after skipping over that level of the minors due to the Cardinals' injury problems.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Added to roster ahead of debut

    The Cardinals selected Scott's contract from Double-A Springfield on Wednesday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Scott was reassigned to minor-league camp over the weekend but has been thrust back on to the big-league roster with Dylan Carlson (shoulder) going down. The speedy rookie will be in line for everyday center field duties while Carlson and Tommy Edman (wrist) are sidelined. It's questionable how ready Scott's bat is, but his speed alone makes him worthy of a fantasy roster spot.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Makes Opening Day roster

    Scott will be included on the Cardinals' Opening Day roster after Dylan Carlson was diagnosed with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder Tuesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatchreports.

    Scott entered camp without much of a path to regular playing time early in the season, but injuries to Carlson, Tommy Edman (wrist) and Lars Nootbaar (ribs) have severely depleted the club's outfield depth. Scott had a strong showing during spring training with a .316/.409/.368 slash line in 44 plate appearances, which is similar to the .794 OPS he posted between the High-A and Double-A levels last season. The 23-year-old is one of the organization's top prospects and is now expected to start Opening Day against the Dodgers.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Could be needed with Carlson out

    Scott is a candidate to join the major-league roster in the wake of Dylan Carlson's (shoulder) injury, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Carlson injured his left shoulder and also banged up his hip and ankle during a collision in the outfield with teammate Jordan Walker on Monday. The seriousness of Carlson's injury isn't known yet, but if he needs to miss time it would further deplete a Cardinals outfield that's already missing Tommy Edman (wrist) and Lars Nootbaar (ribs). It could create an opening for Scott, who was reassigned to minor-league camp over the weekend following an impressive showing this spring. Scott is a worthy speculative late-round fantasy target or waiver-wire add.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Moves to minors camp

    The Cardinals reassigned Scott to minor-league camp Saturday.

    Scott entered camp with a very low chance of making the Opening Day roster after finishing last season in Double-A. However, he showed plenty of promise with a .316 batting average and four stolen bases over 10 games this spring. The speedy 23-year-old will likely open the season in Triple-A Memphis.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Absent from roster projection

    Scott is not included in the Cardinals' Opening Day roster projection by Katie Woo of The Athletic.

    Scott entered camp with seemingly little-to-no shot to make the team, but his performance (.316/.409/.368, four steals) combined with injuries to Tommy Edman (wrist) and Lars Nootbaar (ribs) have put him very much in the conversation. However, with Dylan Carlson also having a good spring and Nootbaar not expected to miss much time, the Cards figure to stick to the original plan and give Scott more seasoning in the minors. The speedy fifth-round pick in 2022 stole 94 bases between High-A Peoria and Double-A Springfield last year, and if he indeed doesn't crack St. Louis' Opening Day roster, he would be in line to begin 2024 at Triple-A Memphis.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Starting again in center field

    Scott is starting in center field and batting leadoff for the Cardinals in Wednesday's Grapefruit League contest against the Twins.

    It's the third time in the team's last four games that Scott has been in center field and at the top of the batting order. Also notable is that Wednesday's lineup features Dylan Carlson in left field, marking the first time those two players have occupied those positions in the same game. Carlson has been the Cards' presumed starter in center field while Tommy Edman (wrist) is out, with president of baseball operations John Mozeliak last week downplaying the possibility of Scott making the Opening Day roster. However, the club seems to be leaving the door ajar for Scott with the way he's turned heads this spring. The speedy outfielder is slashing .370/.469/.444 in Grapefruit League play and is 7-for-11 with two steals, an RBI and four runs scored over his last three contests.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Making roster still unlikely

    Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak indicated Friday that Scott making the Opening Day roster remains unlikely even with Tommy Edman (wrist) and Lars Nootbaar (ribs) injured, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    While Mozeliak didn't totally dismiss Scott's inclusion on the roster when the possibility was raised, he said Dylan Carlson and Alec Burleson would receive starter's reps in the outfield for the time being. The chances of Scott getting a look could increase if the absences of Edman and Nootbaar last longer than expected, but for now it doesn't appear the team is expecting either player to miss much time. Scott is 3-for-16 with two stolen bases so far this spring.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Turning heads with speed

    Scott has gone 3-for-15 with three walks, a triple and two stolen bases over six Grapefruit League games.

    Scott's speed has allowed him to log four runs as well despite the Cardinals' relatively anemic spring offense. The 23-year-old combined for 95 stolen bases over 132 games between High-A Peoria and Double-A Springfield in 2023, with speed being his No. 1 trait. He also has a good hit tool and reliable plate discipline. Scott will need to be tested at Triple-A Memphis first, but a 2024 debut is not out of the question, while a larger major-league role is expected to come in 2025 -- unless he forces the issue with his bat.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Runs way to Double-A

    The Cardinals promoted Scott from High-A Peoria to Double-A Springfield on Monday.

    The 22-year-old outfielder will make the jump to the Texas League after he terrorized opposing pitchers on the basepaths -- he stole a minor-league-leading 50 bags on 57 attempts -- while holding his own at the plate (.757 OPS, 9.5 BB%, 16.9 K%, 121 wRC+ in 308 plate appearances). Scott will need to continue to get on base at a steady clip against upper-level minor-league pitching in order to profile as a potential everyday player in the majors, but at the very least, his premium speed should allow him to emerge as a useful weapon off the bench.

  • Cardinals' Victor Scott: Showcasing premium speed

    Scott is slashing .295/.376/.423 with two home runs and 48 steals on 54 attempts through 60 games with High-A Peoria.

    The 22-year-old outfielder was a fifth-round pick in last year's draft, but it seems like the Cardinals may have gotten a steal. A left-handed hitter, Scott is one of the better athletes in all the minors and is a top-of-the-scale runner, so his stolen-base total carries more weight than that of many lower-level prospects who take advantage of batteries that can't control the run game. Scott's .129 ISO represents an area of weakness, but his 16.1 percent strikeout rate and 9.3 percent walk rate are respectable marks, even for an older hitter in the Florida State League.
