Canandaigua native Adam Scott drafted in fourth round by Indians


The Major League baseball draft is a long process.

Thankfully for Adam Scott, he didn't have to wait too long to hear his name called.

Scott was selected 133rd overall, in the fourth round, by the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday. The 22-year old lefty projects to be a relief pitcher as a pro. He just finished up a very good career at Wofford, topping it off with his best season yet. Scott led the Wofford pitching staff with an 8-5 record and 3.14 ERA. He also set a career-high with 137 strikeouts and career-low 18 walks.

Scott joins a fellow Rochester-area native in the Indians organization. Brighton native Ernie Clement was selected by Cleveland just a year ago, also in the fourth round, but one pick sooner at 132nd overall
