BRANDON CUMPTON RUMORS

Andrew McCutchen: ‘I’m not 100 percent, and I realize that’

Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen left the team’s 5-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals with left rib discomfort. McCutchen left Tuesday’s game in the sixth inning because his ribs were feeling “just sore” and to “take a little break” that will allow him to return for Wednesday’s finale against the Cardinals. “The plan is to play [Wednesday],”...

The Pirates in June: an improbable return to relevance

On May 31st, the Pirates got smoked by the Dodgers. The 12-2 loss ballooned Brandon Cumpton’s ERA up to 6.85. The Pirates were 25-30 and Pirate fans were attempting to talk ourselves into May being a good month due to the Pirates’ 15-14 record, though that meant ignoring their 111/137 run differential that month. We didn’t realize it at the time, but Gerrit Cole would go down...

Brandon Cumpton’s last stand (for now)

With Gerrit Cole returning to the rotation tomorrow night and an off-day on Monday, I think that there’s an awfully good chance that no matter the results of tonight’s game, Brandon Cumpton is going to be headed back down to Triple-A after his start tonight. A lot of Pirate fans want to see Jason Grilli removed from the roster at this point and while I think that’s a move that’s...

Sunday Morning: Vance Worley, Instant Replay, and Brandon Cumpton

You certainly haven’t forgotten the great Edinson Volquez Debates of the Winter of 2014, in which the value of spending $5 million on what was almost certainly a broken pitcher was debated and debated and debated some more. I’m not sure where everyone else ended up (I dunno, there was a lot of yelling about AJ Burnett at the time), but my basic final conclusion on the Volquez...

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...
