Seattle Mariners Prospect Arrested For Australian League Brawl


All winter long, I have been posting updates of several Seattle Mariners organization players and their progress in the various Winter Leagues around the world.

One of those is 21-year old right-handed pitcher Troy Scott.

Well, Scott has been arrested for his role in a bench-clearing brawl in the Australian League. Check out the video below.

Back on January 16th, when Scott’s Adelaide Bite took on the Melbourne Aces, a beanball war broke out and all hell broke loose. As you can kind of see in the video (you can see better in the one below), Scott punched Melbourne DH Kellin Deglan in the face, leaving him with multiple facial injuries that required dental work.

You can see at about the 33 second mark of the video above, Deglan hit the ground and Scott go running off. He later slaps at another player just before the one minute mark, before running off the field completely.

Now, according to a report on, Scott was arrested on Thursday for his role in the fight. The ABL had initially suspended Scott for 6 days, but have sense suspended him indefinitely. They also released this statement:

"“The Australian Baseball League has been made aware that formal charges have been filed in relation to the on-field altercation during the game between the Melbourne Aces and Adelaide Bite at Norwood Oval on Jan. 16,” the league said. “The matter is currently in the hands of the authorities and as such the ABL are unable to make any specific comment in relation to the incident or charges at this time.”"

Here’s another angle of the fight. You’ll see Scott on the right immediately after this video starts, deck Deglan and run away.

Scott has been charged with one count of “assault causing harm” and is scheduled to appear Tuesday in an Adelaide Magistrates Court.

In 2014 between Pulaski and Class A (Short) Everett, Scott was 2-3 with a 4.87 ERA in 11 games (10 starts).
