Scribner was released by the Rays on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports. Scribner was participating in Tampa Bay's camp as a non-roster invitee. He appeared in eight big-league games with the Mariners during the 2017 season, allowing nine earned runs over 7.1 innings of relief. Over the course of his career, the right-hander has accumulated a 4.15 ERA and 1.12 WHIP over 145 games. He will look to latch on with another organization in the coming weeks, but even in the event that he finds a new home, it's unlikely that Scribner will begin the 2018 campaign at the major-league level.
Scribner (elbow) pitched a scoreless inning in his spring debut Sunday against the Twins. The right-hander missed much of last season with a flexor bundle strain, but it seems like everything is back in working order with his injured elbow. With the injury behind him, Scribner can now focus on claiming a low-leverage bullpen role with the Rays.
Scribner (elbow) signed a minor-league deal with the Rays which includes an invitation to spring training, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. Scribner appeared in just eight games for the Mariners last season before suffering a flexor bundle strain in late April. He made a few rehab appearances late in the year but did not make it back to the big leagues. The veteran righty has a 4.15 ERA and a 3.57 xFIP in 169 career major-league innings, numbers which could be good enough for a lower-leverage spot in a big-league bullpen if Scribner can prove that he's fully recovered from his injury.
Scribner (elbow) was released by the Mariners on Tuesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. This isn't too surprising, as Scribner wasn't expected to make it back to the majors before the end of the season due to a flexor bundle strain that has kept him on the shelf since April. Scribner allowed nine runs through 7.1 innings before injuring himself, and he'll head into 2018 with a 4.15 ERA over 169 career innings.
Scribner (elbow) began rehab assignment with the Mariners' rookie-level Arizona League team Saturday, tossing a scoreless inning and giving up one hit. It was Scribner's first game action since late April, when he was moved to the disabled list with a flexor bundle strain in his right elbow. Scribner will need several rehab appearances across multiple affiliates before the Mariners feel comfortable activating him from the 60-day DL.
