SP JT Brubaker

After missing the entirety of the 2023 season due to Tommy John surgery, Brubaker could be returning to the Pirates rotation in 2024 as Noah Wright discussed yesterday.

The 30-year old Brubaker had his Tommy John surgery performed last April, making him a prime candidate to start the season on the 60-day injured list. If all progresses well for Brubaker could begin ramping up sometime this summer before potentially making a return to Pittsburgh in July or August.

In his career, Brubaker has made 63 appearances including 61 starts for the Pirates, posting a 9-28 record with a 4.99 ERA and 4.43 FIP. He has also has a career 22.8% strikeout rate and an 8.4% walk rate.
