3/9/19:With a sturdily built 6-foot-3, 200-pound frame, Stott appears to have tightened his physique from his time with the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team last summer. He's also made tweaks to his swing that are paying dividends early in this 2019 campaign. The Rebels shortstop has reduced the forward angle in his pre-load set-up and through his load, reducing the distance the barrel has to travel to get to contact point. He's also reduced and made uniform his moderate leg lift from swing to swing, improving both his timing and ability to stay balanced throughout on both fastballs and offspeed offerings. The result is an increase in both quality and quantity of contact, with Stott barreling up multiple balls across the quadrants in my most recent look and seldom caught off-balance or out of sync. He's showing significantly more pop this spring than he has shown previously, as well, surpassing his 2018 home run total (4) in just 12 games, with easy left-side lift in the swing. Defensively, Stott shows instinctual footwork and better mobility than one would expect from a thicker-built talent. Paired with good reads off the bat and solid lines, Stott is able to handle the six-spot admirably and has demonstrated a high level of comfort making strong throws across the position as well as on the run. He isn't an impact defender, but looks the part of a future big league shortstop and should also be able to handle second base or third depending on team need. During this mid-week look, Stott looked every bit the part of an early first round selection and profiles as an up-the-middle glove with an above-average bat, quality on-base profile and ability to net you 12-17 home runs annually from the left side.

Team USA Summer '18:Tall, athletic bodied middle infielder with solid tools. Defensively he made all the routine plays with sure hands and fluid actions to go along with plus arm strength. Also displayed a quick transfer and plus range in all directions. Must shorten his swing. He was long to the ball from a high hand starting position. Dropped his hands down and looped. Took a long stride to his front side and got jumpy. Showed average bat speed with average-to-above raw power to his pull side in batting practice. During the games, he put the ball in play, yet it was not hard contact. Was tentative with many swings, feeling for the ball instead of attempting to do damage. He may need to make an adjustment similar to what Cavan Biggio, a former infielder at Notre Dame and current minor leaguer with Toronto, has made since college. Biggio lowered his hands and discovered never seen before power. Stott may be capable of doing the same. Despite the tough look offensively, Stott is a high level athlete with tools and present defensive abilities. Look for him to be considered in the top round of the 2019 draft. (Seifert)
