The Southern Maryland Blue Crabs of the independent Atlantic League of Professional Baseball (ALPB) announced the signing of former New York Mets farmhand Dario Pizzano and ex-New York Yankees minor leaguer Jordan Scott.
Pizzano played with the Mets’ Double-A affiliate at the start of the 2019 season before moving to independent baseball, joining the Somerset Patriots. In 2020, the two-time All-Ivy League outfielder and ex-Columbia Lion, played for the Winnipeg Goldeyes of the American Association.
A 15th-round selection of the Seattle Mariners in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft, Pizzano spent eight seasons and over 700 games in affiliated baseball, reaching as high as Triple-A.
Scott, a switch-hitter selected out of IMG Academy in Florida in the 14th round of the 2106 MLB Amateur, played three years within the Yankees’ system before joining the Canadian-American Association for the 2019 season.
The Georgia native possesses great power and speed, and at 23 years of age, he is one of the youngest players in the Atlantic League.
