That figure is $125,000 above the midpoint and Scott gets a $2.35 million raise after hitting .284 with 27 homers and a .902 OPS in 131 games last season.

Scott’s raw numbers have benefited from sitting against many tough left-handers, but among all left-handed hitters with at least 600 games since 2006 his .869 OPS ranks 11th.
