Hadrurus sp.? Might help if you give a state and a rough location.

Indeed we need a location. You are probably in SRA, because that looks like a Opisthopthalmus species to me....

John, the chela are to globose and the metasomal segments don't fit for Hadrurus...

PS. North American scorps are not my field, so it could be a NA species, but not Hadrurus I think.
