Mets' Andre Scrubb: Signs minors deal with Mets
Scrubb signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Scrubb holds a 3.32 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 43.1 frames in his career from his time with the Astros in 2020-21. Injuries and a lack of interest in free agency have kept Scrubb out of action since then. Considering how long it's been since Scrubb has pitched in a game, he will likely slide into an organizational depth role with the Mets.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Removed from 40-man roster
Scrubb was outrighted to Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the signing of Justin Verlander (elbow). Scrubb pitched in 18 games for Houston in 2021 and had a 5.03 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 21:14 K:BB over 19.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Activated, optioned
Scrubb (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Scrubb began a rehab assignment at the end of August and recorded a 1.69 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 5.1 innings across 5.1 innings. He'll remain in the minors now that he's healthy but will be considered for a call-up if the Astros need a fresh bullpen arm late in the season.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Makes second rehab appearance
Scrubb (shoulder) threw one scoreless inning with one walk and two strikeouts for Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Scrubb made the second of what is expected to be several minor-league appearances. He currently resides on the 60-day injured list, and the earliest he could be back is Sept. 19. The Astros got their bullpen sorted out at the trade deadline, so Scrubb will likely be used in low-leverage situations upon his return.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Begins rehab assignment
The Astros sent Scrubb (shoulder) to the rookie-level Florida Complex League to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday.
After being deactivated July 19 due to a strained left shoulder before being moved to the 60-day injured list, Scrubb won't be eligible to rejoin the Astros until the second half of September. With that in mind, he'll likely be in store for an extended minor-league rehab assignment that will presumably include stops at multiple affiliates. If he makes it back to Houston before season's end, Scrubb will likely be relegated to low-leverage work out of the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Throws off mound
Scrubb (shoulder) threw 20 pitches off a mound Tuesday.
Scrubb has been on the injured list, first the 10-day then the 60-day, since July 17. After Houston upgraded its bullpen at the trade deadline, the team is not counting on Scrubb to be anything more than a low-leverage option when he returns.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Moved to 60-day IL
Scrubb (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Scrubb has been out since July 19 with a right shoulder strain. He began a flat-ground throwing program Friday but will not be eligible to return to the Astros until September 19. Before the injury, Scrubb pitched to a 5.03 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 19.2 innings of relief while blowing two saves in 18 appearances.

Astros' Andre Scrubb: Out with shoulder strain
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.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Needed for length
Scrubb allowed three walks and struck out two over 2.2 scoreless innings in Tuesday's 13-3 loss to the Orioles.

Astros' Andre Scrubb: Brought back up
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.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Sent back to Triple-A
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.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Recalled as 27th man
Scrubb was recalled by the Astros as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
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.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Dispatched to minors
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.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Another bullpen meltdown
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.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Allows two-run homer
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. The 26-year-old reliever owns a 4.70 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 6:4 K:BB across 7.2 innings after he began the season on the injured list with a shoulder injury.... See More ... See Less

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.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Andre Scrubb: Could debut during road trip
Manager Dusty Baker said Wednesday that Scrubb (shoulder) could be activated at some point during the Astros' upcoming six-game road trip, which begins Friday in Tampa Bay, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
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....
