His FIP and ERA were essentially the same but his xFIP was sub 4.

 

In the 26.1 IP, he only gave up 28 hits.  The thing about that is that his BABIP was 400(!) and his HR/FB% was over 26%, so he definitely was unlucky this year.  Its a SSS but still, his numbers easily could have been better with a little more luck.

 

Now, none of that matters until he gets his walk rate down but he has seen that improve in the minors over the years, so hopefully that will happen up here as well.

 

There is some promise here.

The possibility is there but until Scott can consistently throw strikes, he will be nothing but a guy who moves between AAA and the Orioles.

That's the risk in those power guys. You are trading the command for velocity. Batters today know this and until you can prove you can get a good amount of strikes on your own, they aren't going to help you. They are going to wait for one of your misses to trail out over the plate, slap a little contact and watch the ball fly out of the park. Physics are an immovable object.

Well mostly true. We have seen plenty of good hitters who help the pitchers out all the time. A well known ex O's player comes to mind.
