The Pirates announced Sunday that Brubaker is included in their initial 60-man roster pool for the 2020 season, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Brubaker will provide Pittsburgh with some rotation depth during the 60-game campaign, but he's likely to open the season in a long-relief role out of the bullpen, with Steven Brault (shoulder) and Chad Kuhl viewed as the top candidates for the fifth starter's job.
