The Los Angeles Angels have acquired 24-year old righty starter/reliever Troy Scribner from the Houston Astros for cash considerations. Scribner pitched in 29 games (13 starts) in A-ball last year and he was 2-6 with 1 save, a 5.49 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. He worked 100 innings last year and he only gave up 94 hits while whiffing 111 batters…..but he also walked 57 batters, which got him into a lot of trouble. Scribner has now pitched in 63 games (31 starts) in his first four years in the minors and he is 16-13 with 2 saves, a 3.64 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. This was a nice flier for the Angels to take, as Scribner appears to have good stuff….and he pitched well until last year.
