Blue Jays' Brandon Cumpton: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays outrighted Cumptom to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

As anticipated, Cumpton went unclaimed when the Blue Jays exposed him to waivers after dropping him from the 40-man roster a few days earlier. He'll remain in the organization as rotation depth in the high minors, but it's not expected that Cumpton will pick up any starts with the big club over the final few weeks of the season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cumpton made just one appearance for the Blue Jays this season, allowing one run on three hits and two walks across 1.2 innings of work. He also posted a weak 5.40 ERA across 26.2 innings with Triple-A Buffalo. The 29-year-old will now take a spin through waivers to determine where he lands next.

The 29-year-old could make a start for the Blue Jay on Thursday if he isn't needed out of the bullpen in the meantime, Shi Davidi of reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cumpton was most recently with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs of the independent Atlantic League, where he had posted a 1.09 ERA over his last five starts. He'll report to Triple-A Buffalo and could start or work in long relief for the affiliate as he aims to earn his way back to the big leagues for the first time since 2014, when he was a member of the Pirates organization.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers' Brandon Cumpton: Signs minor-league deal with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cumpton signed a minor-league deal with the Rangers, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

He underwent Tommy John surgery in March of 2015, and logged his first pro innings since the procedure last year in the Pirates' minor-league system -- 37.1 frames between three levels. Presumably fully recovered, he will attempt to make the team as a low-leverage reliever in spring training.

Pirates' Brandon Cumpton: Tosses sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cumpton (elbow) threw one inning during a sim game Friday, Stephen Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

This marked the first game-like action Cumpton has seen since 2014, as the 28-year-old continues to slowly work his way back from Tommy John and shoulder surgery. Cumpton remains without a timetable for return, though one should start to materialize as he continues to ramp up his rehab.

Pirates' Brandon Cumpton: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cumpton (elbow) was reassigned to minor league camp Thursday, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

Cumpton last pitched in 2014 before undergoing Tommy John surgery and then shoulder surgery. The righty's throwing off the mound but has yet to face live batters. "He's worked so hard," general manager Neal Huntington said. "That's why we kept him in camp, kept him in this environment with pitching coach Ray Searage, to give him a light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak." The 28-year-old has compiled a 4.02 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 100 major-league innings. While his numbers aren't terrific (including a 68:23 K:BB), he could serve as an in-season call-up for Pittsburgh in 2017.

Pirates' Brandon Cumpton: Continues to progress in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cumpton (elbow) threw off a slope Wednesday for the second time this spring and continues to steadily progress in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, Stephen Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Head athletic trainer Todd Tomczyk cautions that Cumpton is not even close to appearing in games, but the improvements are a positive sign. The 28-year-old righty is hoping to see his first game action since 2014 this upcoming season, though that return may not come until well into the summer.

Pirates' Brandon Cumpton: Gets back to throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cumpton (elbow) began playing catch at the beginning of March, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The 28-year-old hasn't appeared in a game since undergoing Tommy John in March of 2015, although it seems like he's back on the up-and-up in his rehab process. It's unclear how close Cumpton is to game action at this point, but the Pirates will likely take things cautiously with him given the extended length of spring training.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cumpton (elbow) remains out following Tommy John surgery in March of 2015.

Brandon Cumpton gets knocked around Wednesday
by Chris Cwik |

Pirates starter Brandon Cumpton lasted less than four innings Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Cumpton was very hittable, allowing four runs on nine hits in just 3 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out two during the outing. Things could have been worse, as Cumpton loaded the bases in the fourth inning. After getting one out, he was removed with the bases juiced. Ernesto Frieri managed to work out of the jam without surrendering any additional runs, most of which would have been charged to Cumpton. 

The loss dropped Cumpton to 3-3 on the year. It's unclear when Cumpton will make his next start due to the approaching All-Star break.
