The Diamondbacks reassigned Scribner to their minor-league camp Thursday.
Scribner made a spot start for Arizona last season when injuries took a toll on the rotation, but he languished in that outing and was dropped from the 40-man roster shortly thereafter. He'll be back with the organization in 2019 but will function as little more than starting depth in the high minors.
Scribner (shoulder) was released by the Diamondbacks on Monday.
Scribner was on the minor-league disabled list due to right shoulder inflammation at the time of this transaction. The right-hander had only appeared in one big-league game in 2018 and held a 5.11 ERA over 44 innings for Reno. He will look to latch on with another organization in the coming weeks as a veteran that has the ability to serve in the rotation or bullpen.
Scribner was placed on Triple-A Reno's 7-day disabled list Friday with right shoulder inflammation.
Scribner made a spot start for the big club May 12 with the Diamondbacks, but was optioned back to the minors after giving up two runs on four hits and six walks in 3.2 innings. The right-hander has maintained an underwhelming 5.11 ERA and 1.25 WHIP across 44 innings with Reno this season and seems unlikely to receive another look in the new term with Arizona even once the shoulder issue is behind him.
Scribner was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday.
Scribner will return to the minors after taking the loss in his Saturday start, allowing two runs on four hits and six walks over 3.2 innings. He's a candidate to return the majors later in the season if the Diamondbacks are in need of a spot start.
Scribner (0-1) took the loss Saturday agains the Nationals, allowing two runs on four hits and six walks across 3.2 innings. He struck out four.
It was a tough task facing Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals in his first start for the Diamondbacks, but Scribner did little to help himself in this one, tossing just 59 of his 98 pitches for strikes while recording just 11 outs before getting the hook. He loaded the bases up in the third and fourth inning but was able to limit the damage to two runs. Still, two runs was all the Nationals needed with Strasburg on the bump, saddling Scribner with the loss. He'll likely head back to Triple-A Reno while the Diamondbacks work with a four-man rotation for the time being thanks to a midweek off day, but he could rejoin the rotation for a road start against the Brewers later in the month.
Scribner will take the hill versus the Nationals on Saturday.
Scribner is on the "taxi squad" for Friday's game after being recalled from Triple-A Reno in advance of his 2018 debut. Over five starts with the Aces, he's posted a 5.68 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with a 24:11 K:BB in 25.1 innings. It remains to be seen whether Scribner will head back down to Reno following Saturday's start or if there's potential for a second outing, but in all likelihood, he will probably be optioned back to Reno with the Diamondbacks receiving a well-placed off day next Thursday.
Scribner is a candidate to receive a promotion from Triple-A Reno to start Saturday for the Diamondbacks against the Nationals, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.
Earlier this week, Arizona assistant general manager Jared Porter mentioned Scribner, Taylor Clarke, Jake Buchanan and Albert Suarez as the top candidates to assume the rotation spot vacated by Robbie Ray (oblique), who will miss his second straight turn Saturday. Since Porter's announcement, Buchanan and Suarez have both made appearances with Reno, likely taking a promotion for either off the table. While both Scribner (5.68 ERA, 1.31 WHIP in 25.1 innings) and Clarke (5.91 ERA, 1.63 WHIP in 35 innings) have been similarly underwhelming at Reno, Clarke isn't a member of the 40-man roster, seemingly conferring Scribner the edge for a potential callup. Expect Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo to name a new fifth starter at some point Friday.
Scribner was claimed by the Diamondbacks on Friday.
He was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday to make room for Akeel Morris. Scribner was claimed by Arizona and optioned to Triple-A Reno. The 26-year-old reached the majors for the first time last season, tossing 23.2 innings with a 4.18 ERA and a 7.00 FIP. In a corresponding move, Jeremy Hazelbaker was designated for assignment.
Scribner was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday.
To make room on the 40-man roster for the newly-acquired Akeel Morris, the Angels decided to designated Scribner for assignment. Should he clear waivers, expect Scribner to remain at Triple-A Salt Lake, where he posted a 4.35 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over 20 games (103.1 innings) last season.
Scribner was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Scribner posted a 4.18 ERA in 23.2 innings with the Angels last season, though it came with an ugly 7.00 FIP. The 26-year-old righty will return to Triple-A, where he recorded a 4.35 ERA in 103.1 innings last season, and could be back up when someone in the Angels' injury-prone pitching staff inevitably gets injured, though his track record doesn't suggest he'll be a particularly interesting fantasy asset if and when he returns to the big leagues.
Scribner will settle into a relief role with Garrett Richards (biceps) on track to replace him in the rotation Tuesday against the Athletics, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Scribner tossed only 2.2 innings during an abbreviated start Aug. 30 and the light workload made manager Mike Scioscia comfortable enough with calling upon the right-hander to record an out in relief two days later with the knowledge that Richards was ready to rejoin the rotation in his stead. Since Richards had been sidelined since the first week of April and made just one rehab start in the minors, it's expected that he'll face a restricted pitch count in Tuesday's outing, so Scribner could be one of the multiple relievers called upon to piggyback Richards during the contest.
Scribner lasted just 2.2 innings after giving up two runs on four hits to the Athletics on Tuesday. He walked one and struck out two in an eventual 8-2 victory.
Scribner got the early hook after loading the bases in the top of third inning while trying to protect a 5-2 lead. He allowed two homers for the second consecutive start, bringing his season total up to seven in just 20.2 innings. The soft-tossing righty should get another shot at the Athletics next Monday, but his poor combination of being homer-prone (3.0 HR/9) while owning a pedestrian walk rate (3.5 BB/9) makes Scribner a risky play.
Scribner (2-1) gave up three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings in a loss to the Rangers on Thursday.
He was tagged for home runs in the third and fourth innings, bringing his total to five allowed in just 18 innings with the major-league team. Scribner's numbers over a larger body of work at Triple-A this year are decent enough and the door is open for him to continue starting with JC Ramirez (forearm) on the DL, but Scribner will likely continue to have a short leash in his starts with Jesse Chavez piggybacking in relief.
Scribner has been recalled and will start Thursday's game against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
JC Ramirez (forearm) is on the DL and without a timetable to return, so Scribner will slot into that spot in the rotation, at least for one turn. Scribner has a 4.35 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 103 strikeouts in 103.1 innings at Triple-A this season. He also has a 3.46 ERA in 13 innings in the big leagues, split between the bullpen and the rotation, but his 6.59 xFIP and 9:5 K:BB over that stretch isn't particularly encouraging.
Scribner was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake following Wednesday's game.
Scribner will head back to the minors despite allowing just one run on two hits through five innings in Wednesday's win over the Orioles. While he turned in a respectable sophomore start, it may very well be his last for the Angels for the foreseeable future with Andrew Heaney (elbow) on the cusp of a return from the disabled list. A corresponding move will likely be announced prior to Thursday's game against the Mariners.
Scribner gave up five runs (two earned) on two hits and four walks with three strikeouts over four innings in a no-decision Friday against Oakland.
Scribner was wild in his first major-league start, but he also wasn't helped by his defense, as a Yunel Escobar throwing error set up a three-run second inning. The rookie flashed some nasty stuff at times, inducing 12 swinging strikeouts in just 74 pitches. The results weren't pretty but should be intriguing enough for the Angels to give him another look.
Scribner is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Athletics, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Scribner will enter the Angels' starting rotation in place of Jesse Chavez, who was recently shifted to the bullpen after struggling to a 5.24 ERA through 21 starts. The 26-year-old has only appeared out of the bullpen in the majors, but he's compiled a 4.39 ERA and 96 strikeouts in 17 starts (92.1 innings) for Triple-A Salt Lake this season. It's unclear if he'll make more than one start at this point; that could depend on how he pitches Friday.
Scribner was called up by the Angels on Saturday.
The 26-year-old will get his first major-league opportunity, replacing Nick Franklin on both the 40-man and active rosters. He's had some issues with the long ball at Triple-A Salt Lake this year (13 home runs allowed in 97.1 innings), but he's missing bats at a good clip, and most importantly, he can provide length behind Yusmeiro Petit in what will be a bullpen game for the Angels on Saturday.
