Scot Drucker was drafted by the Oakland Athletics in the 13th round of the 2004 MLB June Amateur Draft. After a successful stint in 2008 with the Grand Prairie Air Hogs–American Association of Independent Baseball League–The Detroit Tigers signed Drucker to a minor league deal. This spring the Tigers released Drucker after just two seasons with the AAA-Toledo MudHens.
Back to the drawing board, Drucker re-signed with Grand Prairie Air Hogs. In two starts over 13 innings Drucker posted a 2.10 ERA.
Desiring a bit more, Drucker recently announced that he decided to head to Taiwan to play professional baseball. He will play for the Lamigo Monkeys of the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CBPL). The Monkeys are currently 31-16-1 on the season and are 1/2 game out of first place.
