Outfielder Connor Scott was the 13th overall pick of the 2018 amateur draft, by the Miami Marlins out of H.B. Plant High School in Tampa, FL. He started his professional career that same year with the GCL Marlins and also appeared with the Greensboro Grasshoppers of the South Atlantic League that season. In total, he played 50 games and hit .218/.309/.296, while getting caught in 8 of 17 stolen base attempts. He did better in 2019, a year he split between the Clinton LumberKings of the Midwest League and the Jupiter Hammerheads of the Florida State League. He played a full slate of 122 games, hitting .248/.310/.359. He showed a bit of power with 28 doubles, scored 68 runs and was a much better base stealer, with 23 steals against 10 caught stealing. In both of his professional season, he played almost exclusively in centerfield, the position most apt to showcase his best asset, his speed.
He was forced to sit out the 2020 season because of the shutdown of the minor leagues by the Coronavirus pandemic. He did spent part of the season at the Marlins' alternative training site in Jupiter, FL. In 2021, he was assigned to the High-A Beloit Snappers to start the season after attending the major league team's spring training. In 96 games, he hit .276/.333/.446 with 25 doubles, 6 triples and 10 homers, scoring 80 runs and driving in 46. On November 29th, he was one of three players traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates, in addition to P Zach Thompson and fellow minor leaguer Kyle Nicolas, in return for C Jacob Stallings.
