"Scott Michael Strickland" is a former Major League Baseball relief pitcher.

Strickland was selected by the Montreal Expos in the 10th round of the 1997 MLB Draft out of the University of New Mexico. He played in the Expos minor league system from 1997-1999 with the Vermont Expos, Cape Fear Crocs, Jupiter Hammerheads, Harrisburg Senators and Ottawa Lynx.

Strickland made his Major League debut on August 14, 1999 against the Colorado Rockies. He worked 1.2 innings and allowed one earned run in his debut. He was a relief pitcher for the Expos from 1999 through 2002, when the Expos traded him to the New York Mets in a seven player transaction.

With the Mets, Strickland pitched in 68 games in 2002, finishing 6-9 with a 3.59 ERA. However, after appearing in only 19 games in 2003 he had to undergo Tommy John surgery and was sidelined for most of the next two years. He did not return to the Major Leagues until September 3, 2005 with the Houston Astros. He only pitched four innings with the Astros that season.

From 2006-2008 he pitched in AAA with the Indianapolis Indians (Pittsburgh Pirates/Pirates), Portland Beavers (San Diego Padres/Padres) and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees (New York Yankees/Yankees).

Coach Rupp was kind of an iconic figure. He led the greatest basketball program in the country and was an easy target for those who say he didn't do enough. Whether he did or didn't can be argued.

It took two years, and there were some tears. You never know if you're going to be one of those guys who never makes it back. But I made it. I'm back. I'm healthy. And I know we've got a couple spots open, so I just have to get people out.
