Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Scott Alexander was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 6th round of the 2010 amateur draft; he had earlier been a 37th round selection by the Cincinnati Reds out of high school in 2007, but chose to attend college instead. He first went to Pepperdine University, then transferred to Sonoma State University from where he was drafted by the Royals.

He reached the majors with the Royals late in the 2015 season, which was the year Kansas City won its first World Series title since 1985. He saw action in 4 games, pitching 6 innings with an ERA of 4.50. In 2016, he appeared in 17 games at the major league level, with no decisions but a solid ERA at 3.32. He struck out 16 batters in 19 innings. He then stepped up into an important role in the Royals' bullpen in 2017, when he went 5-4, 2.48 with 4 saves in 58 games. He struck out 59 batters in 69 innings, and allowed 62 hits.

On January 4, 2018, he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers along with fellow reliever Joakim Soria, in return for two prospects, P Trevor Oaks and IF Erick Mejia.
