Troy Alex Scribner (born July 2, 1991) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. He has played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Los Angeles Angels and Arizona Diamondbacks.

Career[edit]

Scribner attended Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut. He was signed by the Houston Astros as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He spent three seasons in the Astros organization, getting as high as Double-A with the Corpus Christi Hooks in 2014.[1] Prior to the 2016 season, he was traded to the Los Angeles Angels for cash considerations.[2] Scribner started 2016 with the Arkansas Travelers, and was called up to the Salt Lake Bees on July 30. He started 2017 with the Bees, and was called up to the Angels on July 29, making his major league debut the same day.[3] In his debut, Scribner pitched three innings in relief, allowing two runs on three hits and striking out two. Thanks to an Angels rally following his final inning of work, Scribner also was the winning pitcher for his debut game. For the season, Scribner appeared in 10 games, 4 starts for the Angels. He was 2-1 with a strikeout to walk ratio of 18/10.

Scribner was designated for assignment on April 3, 2018.[4] He was claimed off waivers by the Arizona Diamondbacks on April 6.[5] He was called up on May 12th for a start against the Washington Nationals. He walked 6 batters in under 4 innings, ending with a no decision. After the game, he was sent down to AAA. He was released by the Diamondbacks on July 2, 2018. On July 13, 2018, Scribner resigned a minor league deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. [6]

Personal life[edit]

His brother, Evan Scribner, played in the Majors, mainly for the Oakland Athletics.
