  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Settles for no-decision Thursday

    Brubaker did not factor in the decision against Arizona on Thursday, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six batters over five innings.

    Brubaker allowed a pair of runs in the fourth inning but was otherwise impressive, allowing only one hit and one walk over his other four frames. The right-hander racked up 13 swinging strikes and finished with six punchouts for the second straight game, but he lost his chance at a victory when the Pirates' bullpen gave up seven runs in the seventh inning. Brubaker has had some poor outings this season, but he's given up three or fewer earned runs while pitching at least five frames in 14 of his 22 starts.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Takes 10th loss

    Brubaker (2-10) gave up three earned runs over four innings and took the loss Saturday as the Pirates fell to the Orioles. He allowed eight hits, struck out six and walked two.

    Brubaker's ERA sat at 3.96 as recently as July 30, but after giving up 10 earned runs in 8.1 innings over his last two outings, his ERA has spiked up to 4.49. He will attempt to get back on track next week out west, either against the Diamondbacks on regular rest or against the Giants if he is pushed back at all.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Hammered for seven runs

    Brubaker (2-9) yielded seven runs on 12 hits over 4.1 innings Sunday, striking out four and taking a loss to the Phillies.

    After allowing two runs in the first inning, Brubaker tossed three shutout frames. He was then tagged with five runs in an ugly fifth inning that began with a leadoff homer from Kyle Schwarber. Brubaker's ERA jumped from 3.96 to 4.40 in the ugly outing, but he improved his K:BB to 105:42. It was also his shortest outing since coughing up six runs against Arizona on June 3. Brubaker is projected to start in Baltimore next weekend.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Fans four in no-decision

    Brubaker yielded two runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings in Monday's loss to the Cubs. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

    Brubaker gave up an RBI single to Nico Hoerner in the second inning followed by a solo home run from Rafael Ortega in the third, breaking his streak of five straight starts without allowing a homer. The 28-year-old righty has allowed three or fewer runs in seven of his last eight outings; in the process, he's lowered his season ERA to 3.96, the first time all year that it's dipped below 4.00. Brubaker will carry a 101:42 K:BB into his projected home outing against the Phillies this weekend.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Electric against Marlins

    Brubaker pitched seven scoreless innings, giving up three hits and two walks while striking out nine in Wednesday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Marlins. He did not factor into the decision.

    Brubaker was able to produce his best outing of the campaign Wednesday, blanking the Marlins over seven frames while registering nine strikeouts for the third time this season. The five total baserunners were his lowest total allowed since May 7 and the seven innings matched his longest outing of the year. Brubaker has now allowed three or fewer runs in six of his last seven outings, lowering his ERA from 4.70 to 4.02 over that stretch.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Walks five in loss

    Brubaker (2-8) gave up three earned runs on five hits and five walks while striking out six over five innings to take the loss in a 4-3 defeat to the Brewers on Friday.

    Brubaker didn't do himself any favors in this contest by walking five batters en route to his eighth loss of the season. Control has been a problem for Brubaker all season long, and he came into the game with a 3.6 BB/9. The 28-year-old right-hander now sports a bloated 1.47 WHIP on the season. Brubaker is striking out a batter an inning so if he can figure out how to limit his walks, he does have the potential to improve his overall numbers. Look for him to take the mound next week at Miami.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Tosses six innings in win

    Brubaker (2-7) earned the win Thursday over Milwaukee, striking out six in six innings while allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks.

    Even though he was hit hard and gave up six extra-base hits, Brubaker managed to get the victory as the Pirates offense scored eight runs. After starting the season 0-7, the 28-year-old has won two of his last three starts and has a 3.50 ERA, 17:5 K:BB and no homers allowed over18 innings in that span. His next start will likely be in the middle of next week against the Yankees.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Quality start Saturday

    Brubaker tossed six innings, surrendering three runs on nine hits while striking out six in Saturday's loss to the Rays. He did not factor into the decision.

    Brubaker was skating in and out of danger in this one, ultimately giving up two runs in the first frame and one more later in the fifth. He has now registered three quality starts in his last four outings, lowering his ERA from 4.70 to 4.14 over that stretch. Since May 17, Brubaker has posted a 2.93 ERA and 1.45 WHIP with a 7.4 K/9 ratio over seven starts.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Earns first win

    Brubaker (1-7) allowed five hits and three walks over six shutout innings Monday, striking out five and picking up a win over the Cubs.

    The Cubs threatened to score on multiple occasions, including in the first inning when Rafael Ortega was thrown out at home to end the frame, but Brubaker held them off and secured his first win of the year. Over his last six starts, the 28-year-old has posted a 2.65 ERA with a 27:12 K:BB. He lowered his season ERA to 4.11 through 70 innings. Brubaker is projected to start in Tampa Bay this weekend.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Remains winless

    Brubaker (0-7) took the loss Tuesday as the Pirates fell 3-1 to the Cardinals in the first game of a doubleheader, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out five.

    It was a solid outing for the right-hander, but a lack of run support and three errors by Diego Castillo ensured he would remain without a win on the season. Brubaker exited after 106 pitches (71 strikes), and over his last five starts he's put together a respectable 3.21 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 22:9 K:BB through 28 innings.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Takes loss despite solid effort

    Brubaker (0-6) took the loss Thursday, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks over seven innings against Atlanta. He struck out seven.

    Brubaker allowed an RBI single to Adam Duvall in the second and run-scoring knocks to Dansby Swanson and Travis d'Arnaud in the third. However, the right-hander was able to mitigate the damage and finished the seventh inning for the first time this season. Across 12 starts and 58.2 innings, Brubaker sports a 4.60 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP with a 60:26 K:BB. His next start is tentatively scheduled for the first half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Remains winless

    Brubaker (0-5) took the loss Friday, coughing up six runs (five earned) on eight hits -- including three home runs -- and a walk over four-plus innings as the Pirates were downed 8-6 by the Diamondbacks. He struck out three.

    The right-hander got the hook after allowing four straight hits to begin the fifth inning, with three of those runners coming around to score. Brubaker hadn't allowed an earned run in either of his prior two starts, but his brief hot streak ended quickly and painfully. He'll carry a 4.70 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 53:24 K:BB through 51.2 innings into his next outing at home versus the Tigers next week.

Despite remaining winless, the 28-year-old has pitched to a 3.57 ERA over his last eight starts while recording 47 strikeouts in 40.1 innings. He'll carry a 4.15 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into a start against Arizona next weekend.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Tosses 6.2 frames

    Brubaker allowed one unearned run on five hits and two walks over 6.2 innings in Monday's win over Colorado. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

    The lone run to score against Brubaker came in the fourth inning following his own throwing error. He's given up two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts, lowering his season ERA from 6.20 to 4.64 while posting a 26:9 K:BB during that span. Brubaker entered the year with a 9.3 K/9 and a 2.9 BB/9 through two MLB seasons; he's registered a 9.9 K/9 and a 4.4 BB/9 through 42.2 innings in 2022. The 28-year-old is lined up to take the mound in San Diego this weekend.

  • Pirates' JT Brubaker: Whiffs 10 in loss

    Brubaker (0-4) took the loss during Tuesday's 7-0 defeat at the hands of the Cubs, allowing six runs (four earned) on six hits and three walks with 10 strikeouts in 5.2 innings.

    Brubaker served up a Jonathan Villar solo shot in the third inning to fall behind and was done in during a five-run fourth that saw the first five batters reach base safely. The 28-year-old has an ugly 5.50 ERA on the season, but a 3.95 xERA indicates some positive regression is ahead and his current rate of 10.8 K/9 would be a new career high. Brubaker is slated to take the hill again early next week against Colorado.
