I never, ever thought I'd say this but Luke Scott, right now, maybe the Orioles' best defensive option in left field. Again, I never thought I would say that. But with the way Felix Pie played in left this weekend and the way Patterson navigated the position before him, not to mention Nolan Reimold's trials out there earlier in the year, I'm not sure Scott could do any worse. Look, I like Pie and he needs to play. I understand that he's a natural center fielder and he is rusty reading balls off the bat after missing so much time. But there were at least four or five catchable balls from the Jays that he took bad routes to or just got a bad jump altogether. Most scouts will tell you that Scott is a below-average defensive left fielder. He doesn't have the arm that Pie has or the speed that Pie and Patterson have. Scott also looks uncomfortable at times tracking balls, but in most cases, he gets to the balls that he should catch. That hasn't always been the case this year with the Orioles' other left fielders.
