BRANDON CUMPTON RUMORS

Casey Sadler brilliant in first major league start

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports When a pitcher is recalled for a spot start, it can almost feel bitter-sweet. When you get a call to make an emergency start, it is usually because of an injury to the expected starter. You may be excited to get your opportunity, but it came at the expense of the original starter. Pittsburgh Pirates’ emergency starter Casey Sadler attested to that...

Testing the depth

The biggest news of the day for the Pirates wasn’t good: Brandon Cumpton had Tommy John surgery and will be out for an entire year. Obviously this is terrible news for Cumpton (although not surprising, as we learned he would visit James Andrews last week), but it isn’t a huge crisis for the Pirates right away. Cumpton wasn’t going to be on the Opening Day major league roster...

Pirates bring up Brandon Cumpton; Tony Sanchez injured?

The Pirates have called up Brandon Cumpton as their 26th man for Sunday’s doubleheader in New York, according to Dan Zangrilli of 93.7 the Fan.  For doubleheaders scheduled at least 48 hours in advance, teams are allowed to add an extra player to the roster, and it makes sense to add a pitcher since there isn’t much need for additional bench players with the DH in an AL park...

Brandon Cumpton makes his 2014 debut as the Pirates try to salvage something from this awful homestand

Let’s not pull any punches: regardless of today’s outcome, the Pirates are going to wrap up two straight weeks of playing the Reds and Brewers with either a 4-10 or 3-11 record. The word to describe this is “disastrous,” even in April. Games in April count, too. The Pirates close out an eight-game homestand against those two teams this afternoon. The homestand started on...

Brandon Cumpton to start today

The Pirates are calling up righty Brandon Cumpton to start Thursday afternoon’s game in place of the injured Wandy Rodriguez. Cumpton will oppose lefty Tony Cingrani at 12:35 as the Pirates try and split the series. Cumpton, who doesn’t profile as a big time prospect but did a very nice job in the spot starter role last season, has earned this callup with a strong start to the...

Pirates baseball: Brandon Cumpton should start for the Pirates

The Cincinnati Reds defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 on Wednesday night to win the third game of a four game series. This loss marked another shaky start for Charlie Morton who allowed three runs in six innings. The Pirates have been inconsistent thus far into the season. With a record of 9-13, their pitching has been the main issue thus far. The starting pitchers have a combined...
