Scott Snodgress Scouting Report

Position:  LHP
Height/Weight:  6'5/210
Bats/Throws:  Left/Left
Birthday:  September 20th, 1989
Hometown/School:  Yucaipa, CA - Stanford

Snodgress was drafted in the 5th round out of Stanford in 2011 where he had a "spotty" career according to John Sickels.  At Stanford, Snodgress was a reliever pitched out of the bullpen, but the White Sox gave Snodgress a chance to start.  So far that decision has really worked out as Snodgress has exploded up the rankings within the organization (#6 in Baseball America's rankings).

In 2011, Snodgress had a record of 3-3 with an ERA of 3.34 and a WHIP of 1.315.  He improved those numbers last year with Kannapolis and Winston-Salem, going 7-3 with an ERA of 3.00 and a WHIP of 1.248.  An area of concern is Snodgres is his walks.  His BB/9 increased in 2012 by 1.5 while his SO/9 decreased by 2.1 from last year.

According to reports, his fastball is in the low 90s.  He also has a developed breaking ball which may be the biggest reason for his early success.
