Amateur career

Scott was a member of the United States national baseball team while the team competed in the last Amateur World Series before it was renamed the Baseball World Cup in 1986. Following the Amateur World Series, he played in the 1987 Pan American Games where they won the silver medal and the 1987 Intercontinental Cup. He was also the back-up catcher for Doug Robbins at the 1988 Olympics where the United States won the gold medal, although baseball was only a demonstration event.

Playing career

Scott began his major league career in 1991 with the Houston Astros, staying with them until the middle of the 1995 season when he was traded along with Luis Gonzalez to the Chicago Cubs for Rick Wilkins. It was with the Cubs, during the 1998 season, that he played in his only post-season. After the Cubs lost to the Braves in the National League Division Series as a wildcard team, he signed as a free agent with the San Francisco Giants. Towards the end of the 2000 season, Servais was selected off waivers by the Colorado Rockies. Prior to the 2001 season, he was picked up as a free agent by the Detroit Tigers, but was released before the season began. Shortly before the 2001 season, Scott was picked up as a free agent by the Houston Astros. Scott was initially signed as a free agent prior to the 2002 season, but he did not make the opening day roster, making the 2001 season his final season.[4]

Post-playing career

Servais served in the Texas Rangers' front office before being hired by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as an assistant general manager in 2011.[5][6] When Jerry Dipoto, the Angels' general manager, resigned during the 2015 season the Angels hired Billy Eppler.[7]

Dipoto was hired as the general manager of the Seattle Mariners on September 28, 2015, and the team fired Lloyd McClendon following the 2015 season.[8] Several weeks later, Servais was hired as the manager of the Mariners for the 2016 season.
