Player Profile: Scott Aldred

I have fifteen cards of Scott Aldred. This one is from 1992 Score.

Playing Career: Scott Aldred came up with Detroit in 1990, and 47 games for the Tigers and Expos between 1990 and 1993 before elbow injuries threatened to end his career. He was able to successfully recover, however, returning to the major leagues in 1996 with the Tigers and eventually pitching in another 182 big league games through the 2000 season with Detroit, Minnesota, Tampa Bay and Philadelphia. His career was more quanitity than quality, however – he had a 20-39 record with a 6.02 ERA. You can read a more detailed account of his pitching career at The Greatest 21 Days.

Where he is now: Pitching coach for the Scranton Yankees AAA team.

My memories: I remember him more as a Tiger in the early 90s, didn’t remember his comeback. This past offseason he was one of the candidates for the Yankees pitching coach job.

Google Autocomplete results: He is sixth when you type Scott Ald, between photographer Scott Aldrich and Scott Alder, Co-President of the Michigan Hunter Jumper Association. Another prominent Scott Aldred is the President of NuStar Manufacturing.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Mike Aldrete.
