Luke Brandon Scott (born June 25, 1978) is an American Major League Baseball first baseman, outfielder and designated hitter, who currently plays for the Baltimore Orioles.

He attended Oklahoma State, where he earned All-Big 12 Conference honors on their baseball team. In the summer of 2000, he played for the Falmouth Commodores of the Cape Cod Baseball League. He also played baseball at Indian River Community College. Luke spent a winter playing for a Venezuelan League where he earned the nickname "el monstruo de cuadrangular" which translates to "The Home Run Monster". He spent his first professional season in 2001 at home recovering from Tommy John surgery on his elbow joint.

Scott became the first Astros' rookie to hit for the cycle, accomplishing a "reverse natural cycle" (home run, triple, double, and single, in that order) on July 28, 2006. That feat also marked Scott's first career home run. After the completion of the 2007 season Scott headed to Venezuela to play another season in the Winter League.
