Jed Moscot is off to a fast start on the mound as a redshirt senior on Bradley University’s baseball team in Peoria, Illinois. The former All-City pitcher at Palisades High has appeared in three games for the Braves and has picked up two wins. He has allowed eight hits and zero runs with eight strikeouts and one walk in 14 innings of work so far. After going 5.2 innings with four punch outs March 6 against New Orleans he had a 5.1-inning outing against Alabama State last Saturday when he allowed three hits and struck out three batters.
The 6-3, 200-pound righty earned Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete Honorable Mention in 2020 as a first-year transfer from Cuesta Community College. He ranked fourth on the team with 17 appearances in 2019, racking up 50.2 innings pitched. That year he was 4-1 with one save in his 17 outings, which included four starts.
Moscot redshirted as a true freshman at UC Davis before transferring to Cuesta for his redshirt freshman and sophomore seasons. He made 34 appearances in two seasons at Cuesta, working out of the bullpen in 31 outings and went 4-6 with two saves.
As a senior at Pali High in 2015 Moscot was named the top pitcher in the Western League and earned All-City Section first-team honors after going 5-3 with a 0.87 earned run average. He allowed only 34 hits in 64 innings his senior year while recording 86 strikeouts (12.1 per nine innings) against 12 walks.
He made the All-City second team as a junior third baseman in 2014 after batting .319. He tossed a one-hitter with nine strikeouts in the 2015 City wild card playoffs, leading Palisades to a 2-0 victory over Sylmar.
Not only did Moscot retire the side in the top of the sixth but he helped his own cause in the bottom of the frame with a two-out single in his final high school at-bat to drive in the insurance run.
Jed’s older brother Jon won the Post Cup Award at Pali High and started eight games on the mound for the Cincinnati Reds in 2015 and 2016 before his MLB career was cut short due to injury.
