Scrubb was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a strained right shoulder, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
It's unclear when Scrubb picked up the injury, but he last pitched Friday against the White Sox and delivered one scoreless inning. The right-hander will be eligible to return in late July, though it's unclear if he's expected to be healthy by that point.
Scrubb allowed three walks and struck out two over 2.2 scoreless innings in Tuesday's 13-3 loss to the Orioles.
Scrubb entered after starter Jose Urquidy left with right shoulder discomfort. He'll continue to serve in a multi-inning relief role. The right-hander has a 5.94 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over 16.2 innings out of bullpen.
Scrubb was recalled by the Astros on Monday, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Scrubb has had a busy few days. He was recalled to serve as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers but was optioned after the game. He's back just two days later and will give the Astros an extra option in the bullpen, though his 7.62 ERA and 1.85 WHP in 13 innings at the highest level this season mean he'll likely be limited to low-leverage innings. Taylor Jones was optioned in a corresponding move.
Scrubb was optioned back to Triple-A Sugar Land after serving as Houston's 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers.
Scrubb did not appear in either game of the twin bill and will now head back to Sugar Land for the time being. The right-hander figures to be a top candidate to rejoin the Houston bullpen if the club finds itself in need of another relief arm.

Scrubb was sent down at the end of May, and he's posted a 1.35 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 6.2 innings with Triple-A Sugar Land. He'll provide a fresh arm out of the bullpen in Saturday's twin bill but could return to the minors afterward.
The Astros optioned Scrubb to Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Scrubb will cede his spot on the active roster and in the Houston bullpen to Blake Taylor (ankle), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list. After Scrubb posted a 1.90 ERA that was backed by shaky peripherals in 2020, regression has come hard for him thus far in 2021. Over his 13 innings out of the Houston bullpen, Scrubb has tagged for 11 earned runs on 14 hits and 10 walks.
Scrubb (1-1) allowed two runs on two hits while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning to pick up the loss Saturday against Texas.
The Astros' bullpen, with several young hurlers still in transition to the majors, were tagged with losses Friday and Saturday, but their issues go back further. Scrubb was taken deep by Adolis Garcia in the seventh inning, the third home run he's allowed over his last 3.1 innings. He was followed by Enoli Paredes, who didn't field a groundball cleanly, leading to three unearned runs. Houston's bullpen has a 5.96 ERA over the last seven games, during which opponents have 22 hits and 13 walks over 22.1 innings.
Scrubb (leg) allowed two runs on two hits and struck out one in one inning in Sunday's 6-2 win over Texas. He was charged with a blown save.
The right-hander was unavailable Saturday after he tweaked something in his leg, but it was apparently a short-term issue. Scrubb wasn't very effective Sunday, as he gave up a game-tying two-run home run to David Dahl in the seventh inning.

Scrubb tweaked "something in his leg" and was unavailable for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Scrubb retired all five batters faced and provided space for Houston's bats to overcome a 5-0 deficit in what was his longest outing of the season. The right-hander has retired nine consecutive batters.
Scrubb (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old opened the season on the shelf with inflammation in his right shoulder, but he's now healthy and ready for his 2021 debut. Scrubb made his big-league debut last season and posted a 1.90 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 24:20 K:BB across 23.2 innings.

Scrubb has been on the 10-day injured list all season with an inflamed right shoulder, but he took a significant step forward recently by throwing on back-to-back days at the Astros' alternate site. As a rookie last season, Scrubb turned in a 1.90 ERA in 23.2 innings, but the underlying peripherals (88.2 percent strand rate, .212 BABIP, 3.9 K-BB%) suggest he wasn't nearly as effective as his ERA would indicate.
Astros general manager James Click said Scrubb (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Thursday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Click reiterated that Scrubb will be back soon, meaning the right-hander is seemingly still tracking toward a mid-April return from the 10-day injured list, just as Astros pitching coach Brent Strom had suggested prior to Opening Day. Scrubb posted a 1.90 ERA in 23.2 innings as a rookie last season, but a 1.48 WHIP, 7.6 BB/9 and .212 BABIP suggest that ERA might be a bit of a mirage.
Scrubb (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Scrubb is dealing with minor fatigue in his right shoulder but returned to throwing Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old has been sidelined for the past week by the shoulder fatigue, but there don't appear to be any structural issues and he's now progressing toward his return. Scrubb isn't expected to be ready for Opening Day but shouldn't face an extended absence.
Scrubb (shoulder) isn't likely to be ready for Opening Day, Adam Spolane of SportsRadio 610 reports.
Scrubb has been sidelined over the past few days due to right shoulder inflammation, but he could return to the mound soon once the inflammation subsides.

Scrubb has drawn praise from pitching coach Brent Strom early during spring training, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. "He's lost some weight. He's in great physical shape. He's worked on his slider," Strom said. "Andre is very unique. He led our team in innings pitched last year out of the bullpen. I firmly believe he's going to improve a great deal."
Scrubb is ostensibly vying for the final spot in the bullpen. He posted a 1.90 ERA over 23.2 innings during the truncated season, which would seemingly make him a lock for the pen, but the results came with warning signs. His 20 walks and 7.6 BB/9 were concerning as was his noisy delivery, which he's "quieted down" per Strom.
