Pirates Have Pitching Personnel Conducive To Trying Something Revolutionary

PITTSBURGH — On Friday, Rays manager Kevin Cash announced that his club would do something not often tried in Major League Baseball: Deploy a relief pitcher as his starter. Cash told reporters that Sergio Romo, who had never started a game in his 11-year big-league career, would the mound for the first inning Saturday night […]

What Kind of Pitcher is Steven Brault?

PITTSBURGH — Steven Brault is a pitcher, of that much, he’s fairly certain. Yes, he’s hitting a very un-pitcher-like .273 this season that not only leads the Pirates pitching staff, but is ahead of eight position players. But Brault is definitely a pitcher. What’s more of an open question is what kind of pitcher he’s […]

Rise and Fall: Adjustments in Progress for Tyler Glasnow, Steven Brault

PITTSBURGH — After Nick Kingham’s stunning MLB debut Sunday afternoon, it seems the Pirates’ bullpen will once again feature two young pitchers who have trained as starters. Not that Tyler Glasnow and Steven Brault are in positions to get comfortable anyway. Both are still trying to prove themselves as viable pitchers at this level, with […]

Seeing The Josh Harrison Situation From A Pitcher’s Perspective

PITTSBURGH — Josh Harrison made his feelings known. Boy, did he ever. A day after getting the fifth metacarpal bone on his left hand broken by an errant pitch for the second time in a year, Harrison didn’t hold back on what’s wrong with today’s game, at least in his mind. “Guys are throwing harder […]

Gajtka: Shorten The MLB Season? Unlikely, But It Makes Some Sense

PITTSBURGH — The Cubs and Cardinals had their Wednesday game at Wrigley Field postponed due to nasty weather. That was the 25th postponement across Major League Baseball, one short of the modern through-April record, set in 2000. The circumstances were enough to make Chicago’s Anthony Rizzo publicly propose a decrease in the number of games […]

Steven Brault is Making the Most of His Time in the...

PITTSBURGH — Through two starts this season, Pirates left-hander Steven Brault has done pretty much all the club could have asked for out of a last-minute spot starter. Brault worked out all spring as a starting pitcher, but was pretty sure that he was going to end up in the bullpen this year, and that’s […]

Steven Brault Building on Flexibility

PITTSBURGH — Pirates lefty Steven Brault spent the entirety of Spring Training working as a starting pitcher. That made sense, after all. Brault has been a starter for almost all of his professional career. Of his 128 career professional appearances, 116 of the them have come as a starter. But for almost the entire spring, […]

Injury Updates: Steven Brault Takes Over in the Rotation With Joe...

PITTSBURGH – In 2017, the Pirates used just seven starting pitchers and had five players take 25 starts or more as the rotation went through a period of solid health compared to the league-wide average. Only Jameson Taillon’s cancer diagnosis kept a Pirates starter from taking his regular turn physically a year ago. In 2018, […]

Trevor Williams Broke Into the Rotation Last Year and Breaks Into...

BRADENTON, Fla. — In my humble opinion, IMHO is one of the top five podcasts featuring Major League Baseball players. Of course, that’s not much of a hot take, because it’s the only podcast featuring MLB players that I’ve ever listened to. But regardless, the podcast, featuring Pirates right-hander Trevor Williams and southpaw Steven Brault, […]
