Scot Drucker: Free Agent For Hire

» 12 January 2012 » In international baseball » Comments Off on Scot Drucker: Free Agent For Hire

Disclosure: Scot is currently a free agent and provided me this bio to run on the site. I have no financial interest in Scot’s contract situation, my only objective is to help out a hardworking ballplayer.

Scot Drucker, minor league veteran and world traveler, is currently a free agent and looking for a spot to play overseas this season. He just wrapped up a season in Venezuela for the Tigres de Aragua, and spent 2011 in Taiwan pitching for the Lamigo Monkeys. Scot played collegiate ball, initially at University of Florida and later transferring to the University of Tennessee, before being selected by the Oakland A’s in the 13th round of the 2004 MLB Draft. After playing four seasons with Oakland, he was picked up by the Detroit Tigers where he reached AAA with the Toledo Mudhens. Scot’s winterball travels include Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Venezuela. He has shown much versatility by closing, starting, and serving as swingman wherever he has been. He also has been a fan and clubhouse favorite everywhere he has played and actively engages his fanbase using social media.

Orlando Roman Signs, With Yakult?

» 02 January 2012 » In npb » 2 Comments

The other day, Scot Drucker tweeted that Orlando Roman signed with a Japanese team. On the same day, Daily Sports reported that Yakult was looking into signing Roman, so, putting two and two together… I’ll surmise that Roman has signed with Yakult.

I’ll admit that I had never heard of Roman prior to Drucker’s tweet, but his b-ref page indicates that he’s a hard working minor league veteran, a 31st-round draft pick who reached 3A at age 27, and has played in Mexico and in Taiwan with the Brother Elephants in recent years. It’s always nice to see  hard work pay off for this type of player, and I hope he does well in Japan.
