It’s just six weeks into the season, and Orioles reliever Tanner Scott has already seen his share of the Triple-A Norfolk shuttle. He’s been called up from the minors three times – most recently Wednesday. His previous two trips were short, but if the hard-throwing left-hander continues to pitch as he did in Thursday’s 11-6 win over the Kansas City Royals, he will make it hard for the team to send him down again.
Scott had his most dominant performance as a major leaguer Thursday, retiring six of seven batters he faced over two scoreless innings, with four of his six outs coming by strikeout.
Not bad for a 23-year-old making his sixth major league appearance.
