Bryson Stott Contract
Bryson Stott is on a 1 yr, $700,000 contract with the Philadelphia Phillies
The Phillies picked Stott’s contract on Thursday.
Stott made an impression in the minors last year, and he earned a spot on the Opening Day roster this spring by hitting .406/.513/.563 with a home run, two doubles, six runs, and three RBI in 14 Grapefruit League games.
Early in the 2022 season, the 24-year-defensive old’s flexibility will allow him to get time at third base, second base, and shortstop.
It had been years since the Phillies had a prospect with such high expectations set to open the season.
According to Todd Zolecki of the Philadelphia Inquirer, MLB’s No. 45 prospect Bryson Stott will join the Phillies on Opening Day four years later, with significantly less hoopla.
The squad has yet to decide on Stott’s position. He may start at third base, shortstop, or platoon at both positions alongside Alec Bohm and Didi Gregorius.
However, the Phillies choose not to go down that path. In 2018, they learned their mistake by assigning Kingery to shortstop, the most difficult defensive position on the field and one he had never played before.
Fortunately, the club feels Stott and Bohm will be able to get enough plate appearances to continue their progress.
Stott’s rise without a demotion has some intriguing ramifications. It signifies that there are no open bench spaces on the whole squad for utility players.
The Phillies will likely carry 15 pitchers, five starters, and ten relievers on their enlarged rosters of 28 players, leaving capacity for 13 batters. With Stott on the bench for Opening Day, there are only three slots left.
