Bryson Jeremy Stott is an American professional baseball shortstop for the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball. Stott signed with the Phillies on June 27, 2019, after agreeing to a $3.9 million signing bonus.
In the 2022 regular season, he batted .234/.295/.358 in 427 at-bats. Stott played 83 games at shortstop, 47 at second base, and two at third base.
After four baseball-less days, the World Series begins Friday night at Minute Maid Park as the Houston Astors host the Philadelphia Phillies for Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.
The Phillies beat the odds and the Astros in storming back from a 5-0 third-inning deficit to win, 6-5, in an epic 10-inning Game 1.
Phillies shortstop Bryson Stott is in the lineup for Game 1 of the World Series, batting seventh and playing shortstop.
On Friday night, Justin Verlander was nearing 30 pitches in the fourth inning. Bryson Stott worked a 10-pitch walk before Verlander could escape further damage by inducing a Jean Segura pop-out.
Stott has been a fixture in the Philadelphia Phillies lineup for most of the postseason but has seen the bench against a couple of lefties. Again this could happen in this series.
Bryson will be on the bench again, as lefty Framber Valdez is slated to start Game 2 on Saturday.
Stott should see his fair share of playing time this series, and if he does sit, he could still get into the game as a pinch-hitter. The 25-year-old shortstop hasn’t been on fire this postseason. He has slashed .200/.273/.333 with three runs and three RBI in 30 postseason at-bats.
@ToddZolecki twitted: “So the Phillies claw back into this, cutting the Astros lead to two. They made Justin Verlander throw 31 pitches in the inning. Bryson Stott saw 10 of them”.
