D-backs RHP Troy Scribner to start Saturday against Nationals
Right-handed pitcher Troy Scribner will start for the Arizona Diamondbacks against Washington on Saturday, according to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro.
Scribner is 2-1 this season with Triple-A Reno, recording an ERA of 5.68 and striking out 24 batters in 25.1 innings. He also walked 11 in his five starts.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound pitcher was signed as a undrafted free agent by the Houston Astros in June of 2013.
After spending time in the minors, Scribner made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Angels in 2017, becoming the first Sacred Heart University alum to play in the majors.
He appeared in 10 games for the Angels, going 2-1 with a 4.18 ERA, striking out 18 batters and walking 10 others.
Scribner was claimed by the D-backs in April after the Angels designated him for assignment.
Scribner will face Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg.
