Meisinger, Scott Claimed On Waivers

Two former Valley Leaguers, both with major league experience, were on the move Monday.

Both Ryan Meisinger (Staunton 2014) and Robby Scott (Covington 2010) were claimed off waivers by a new team when their own one tried to clear space on the 40-man roster.

  • Meisinger, an 11th round pick in 2015 of the Orioles out of Radford, pitched in 18 games for Baltimore in 2018 after making his major league debut on June 29th. He went 2-1, 6.43, with a 1.333 WHIP, 4.3 BB/9, and 9.0 K/9 in 21 innings. He also threw 46 minor league innings, split between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk, and went 2-0, 3.13, with a 1.261 WHIP, 2.9 BB/9, and 10.8 K/9. He was claimed by the St. Louis Cardinals, and is projected to begin 2019 in the high minors.
  • Scott started his career for Yuma of the Independent North American League after going undrafted in 2011. After 19 strikeouts in 11 innings, the Red Sox signed him. In 2018, Robby pitched in 9 major league games, going 0-1, 8.10, with a 2.250 WHIP, 6.8 BB/9, and 10.8 K/9. For Triple-A Pawtucket, Scott went 3-3, 1.86, with a 1.159 WHIP, 3.9 BB/9, and 11.7 K/9 in 48 1/3 innings. He was scooped up by the Cincinnati Reds, and is projected to start 2019 in the high minors.
