  • Cubs' Steven Brault: Hits COVID-19 injured list

    Brault was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday. It's unclear if Brault tested positive for the virus himself or if he's merely been exposed to someone who did, so it's unclear exactly when he's expected back. He's thrown 5.2 scoreless innings of relief for the Cubs this season.

  • Cubs' Steven Brault: Contract selected

    Brault's contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Brault returned to the mound in Iowa on July 6 after missing over three months due to a left triceps strain. He's tossed 3.2 scoreless innings over three relief appearances with the Triple-A club and should serve as a middle reliever for the Cubs ahead of the All-Star break.

  • Cubs' Steven Brault: Back in action at Triple-A

    Brault (triceps) has made two appearances for Triple-A Iowa since being activated from the 7-day injured list July 4, striking out three while allowing three hits and no walks over two scoreless frames. After signing a minor-league deal with Chicago in March, Brault was expected to compete for a rotation spot with the big club in spring training, but a left triceps strain prevented him from seriously contending for an Opening Day role. After going on Iowa's 7-day IL, Brault was sidelined for nearly three months before debuting for the affiliate. As a result of the missed time, Brault hasn't been built up for starting duty, so he looks as though he'll stick in Iowa's bullpen for the time being.

  • Cubs' Steven Brault: Heading to Triple-A

    Brault (triceps) was assigned to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Brault signed what was supposed to be a major-league deal with the Cubs in mid-March, but it was converted to a minor-league contract after a physical revealed a triceps injury. He hasn't pitched in a game this spring, so he'll have to build up to game shape before he gets the chance to push for a roster spot.

  • Cubs' Steven Brault: Dealing with triceps issue

    Brault is dealing with a triceps injury, which explains why his contract with the Cubs was converted to a minor-league deal Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. Brault missed the end of last season with a lat strain, but the physical he took while signing a deal with the Cubs revealed a separate issue. He won't be able to throw for at least two weeks, which takes him out of the running for the Opening Day roster.

  • Cubs' Steven Brault: Contract converted to MiLB deal

    Brault (lat) had his contract with the Cubs converted to a minor-league deal with an invite to major-league spring training Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Brault was initially slated to join the Cubs on a one-year, major-league contract, but his deal will be revised since he's dealing with an injury setback. It's not yet clear when the left-hander will be fully healthy. However, he'll compete for a spot on the major-league roster on a contract that includes an opt-out clause in July.

  • Cubs' Steven Brault: Strikes deal with Cubs

    Brault (lat) agreed Wednesday with the Cubs on a contract, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. According to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com, Brault will receive a one-year, major-league deal. Chicago's decision to bring Brault aboard is likely a reaction to the news earlier this week that Adbert Alzolay will miss at least two months after he was diagnosed with a lat strain. With Alzolay presumably headed for the 60-day injured list, the Cubs have youngsters Justin Steele and Keegan Thompson on hand to battle for the final spot in the five-man rotation, and Brault should get a chance to compete for the job as well. A veteran of 52 career MLB starts, Brault's experience may give him the upper hand over Steele and Thompson, though he'll first have to prove that he's healthy again after he finished last season on Pittsburgh's IL with a lat strain of his own.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Designated for assignment

    Brault (lat) was designated for assignment by the Padres on Monday. Brault's 4.77 career ERA certainly isn't anything special, but it's better than the types of career marks you usually see among pitchers available on the waiver wire. He struggled to a 5.86 ERA in seven starts in 2021 while battling lat issues for much of the year, however, and the Pirates are evidently content to move on. The roster move clears space for the team to add new signing Jose Quintana to the 40-man roster.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Won't return in 2021

    Brault (lat) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday. Brault was placed on the injured list with a recurrent left lat strain Saturday, and he'll be sidelined for the remainder of the season following his move to the 60-day IL. The southpaw made seven starts in 2021 and recorded a 5.86 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 27.2 innings. He'll now work toward returning to full health in time for spring training in 2022.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Lands on 10-day IL

    Brault was placed on the 10-day injured list with a recurrent left lat strain Saturday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Brault was removed from Friday's game against the Nationals due to left arm discomfort, but he's apparently been dealing with a lat issue for some time. He'll miss at least one turn through the rotation, and it's not yet clear whether he'll have enough time to return prior to the end of the regular season. Right-hander Connor Overton was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, but the Pirates haven't announced who will take Brault's place in the rotation.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Exits with left arm discomfort

    Brault exited Friday's game against the Nationals due to left arm discomfort, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports. Brault allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out one in two innings to begin Friday's game, but he was replaced to begin the third inning. It's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to miss additional time due to his injury. If he's cleared to make his next turn through the rotation, the southpaw tentatively lines up to start at home Thursday against the Reds.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Struggles again Friday

    Brault allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four in four innings versus the Cubs on Friday. He did not factor in the decision. The southpaw didn't bounce back very well after getting lit up for seven runs in three innings versus St. Louis last Saturday. Brault had given up just four runs in 18.2 innings across his first four starts prior to his recent two-start skid. He now owns a 5.61 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB in 25.2 innings this year. The 29-year-old lines up for a home start versus Detroit next week.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Crushed in short outing

    Brault (0-3) lasted only three innings against St. Louis on Saturday, allowing seven runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out one to take the loss. The left-hander breezed through the first inning and gave up two runs in the second before falling apart in the third. The Cardinals got to Brault for six hits and five runs in that frame, with opposing pitcher Adam Wainwright dealing the final blow with a run-scoring single. Brault hadn't given up more than two earned runs in any of his previous four appearances this season, but Saturday's disastrous start pushed his ERA from 1.93 all the way up to 4.57. He'll try to bounce back in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled to come on the road against the Cubs next week.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Takes loss in short outing

    Brault (0-2) was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Cardinals after allowing one run on five hits and two walks across four innings, fanning one. Brault didn't have his best stuff in this one, as he finished with more walks than strikeouts for the first time in 2021 and also failed to pitch more than four innings since his season debut. While he still owns a 1.93 ERA with a 1.07 WHIP, two figures that would rank as career-best marks for him, it's also worth mentioning that he's been struggling to pitch deep into games and that clearly reduces his fantasy appeal.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Goes 5.2 scoreless innings

    Brault didn't factor into the decision during Monday's 2-1 loss to the Dodgers, allowing three hits and a walk with four strikeouts in 5.2 innings. Making his third start of the season since coming off the IL, Brault limited Los Angeles to just five baserunners while making it almost six innings despite a pitch count. The lefty's one problem inning was the sixth -- he departed with two out and two on -- but fortunately reliever Nick Mears was able to escape the jam. Brault has now allowed three runs in 15.2 innings across three starts and lines up to face St. Louis over the weekend.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Drop in velo

    Brault's fastball velocity Tuesday (90.7 mph) sat nearly two miles-per-hour below its speed in 2020 (92.1 mph). The southpaw made just his second appearance since returning from a left lat strain that forced him to miss the season's first half. Brault has never relied on a blazing fastball -- he holds a 92-mph career average -- but the drop in velocity is noteworthy. He's throwing his fastball less than ever (36.6 percent) -- whether that's by design isn't known -- but opponents have barreled his pitches at a 19.2 percent clip, well above his career mark (5.8 percent). The last-place Pirates will likely handle Brault with kid-glove care, perhaps limiting his workload the rest of the way -- he's totaled nine innings (153 pitches) in his two outings after throwing 42.2 frames in 2020.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Recovers after early trouble

    Brault (0-1) allowed two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out six across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Cardinals. Brault surrendered a home run in each of the first two frames. However, he allowed only one hit in his final three innings of work and retired the last eight batters he faced. This was Brault's second start of the season, and he threw one additional inning but only three pitches more than his opening appearance. In that two-start sample, he's allowed three earned runs across nine innings while striking out eight and walking one.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Activated prior to start

    Brault (lat) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's start against the Brewers, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports. Brault began the season on the injured list due to a left lat strain, but he made three rehab starts at Triple-A Indianapolis and allowed two runs in 11 innings. The Pirates will monitor the left-hander's workload Wednesday since he hasn't thrown more than 70 pitches across four innings in any of his rehab outings, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Rejoining rotation Wednesday

    Brault (lat) will be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Wednesday at Milwaukee, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Brault has been on the shelf since late March after suffering a strained left lat, and he'll rejoin Pittsburgh's rotation Wednesday after making three rehab starts in the minors. The left-hander covered four frames in his last rehab outing, so he may face some workload limitations as he returns to major-league action.

  • Pirates' Steven Brault: Feels good after first rehab start

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Brault (lat) came out of his first rehab start at Triple-A Indianapolis last weekend "pretty well," Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Brault has been sidelined since late in spring training with the left lat strain, so he may require at least two or three more rehab outings at Indianapolis before the Pirates consider bringing him back from the 60-day injured list. In his first Triple-A start, Brault covered three innings (37 pitches) and gave up one run on two hits and no walks while striking out two.
