Have you seen his minor league stats? He's been one of the league leaders in power numbers the past couple years. His average was in the upper .290's. He seems to have good plate dicipline with a good walk/strikeout ratio and getting better. He has 30 homerun power but his average will probably be about .270 or less. His defense is said to be below average as of now so he will have to stay hot with the bat to prevent losing playing time in the future in the NL

I went to the Astros game last night, were there was 5 'Stros homers, one being by Luke Scott. His patience and disclpine at the plate was incredible for the first two at-bats working with the pitches. Second one is where he hit the homer. However the third one, everyone was cheering him on for another homer and he swing at a ugly high ball to strike out. The astros batted him 5th in the line-up. There is a reason for that. This kid can hit, the Astros will rely on him heavily during the next for weeks and hopefully through the playoffs. Keep your eye on this kid, he is going to shine and I would say sooner rather than later.

As long as he keeps hitting the way he has been, yes. If not, there are guys like Burke, Taveras, and Wilson who whould see more PT.

From Rotoworld:

Luke Scott, HOU Aug. 12 - 6:21 pm et

Luke Scott could play regularly against right-handers for the remainder of the season following the decision to cut Preston Wilson on Saturday.
Jason Lane should take over as his platoon partner. Scott is currently batting .413 with three homers in 75 at-bats. He's still not a great choice in mixed leagues, but now it looks like he'll have value in NL-only leagues the rest of the way.

I don't really understand why this guy doesn't play everyday....It's not like he's a young prospect(He's 28 years old). He is pretty seasoned, and all the numbers indicate he is ready to be an everyday player. I just picked him up, and I hope he keeps getting PT, because I'm pretty confident he's going to produce when he does play.

Word. I just hope he doesn't turn into a Jason Lane, they were both good minor league players. I like Scott and I hope he keeps it up!! ;-D
