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.
Scribner was claimed by the D-backs in April after the Angels designated him for assignment.
Scribner will face Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg.
In a corresponding move, the club optioned Jake Barrett back to triple-A Reno.
Barrett was brought up for one game on Friday to give a fatigued bullpen a boost.
He pitched one perfect inning striking out one while throwing seven of eight pitches for strikes.
