JT Brubaker- Pittsburgh Pirates

PITTSBURGH — JT Brubaker is about as grizzled a veteran that can be found on the Pittsburgh Pirates roster. Not that the right-hander has exactly been around forever.

Brubaker has just three years of major league service time. Yet he is one of just four Pirates players remaining from the 2020 season, the first with general manager Ben Cherington and manager Derek Shelton in charge.

That short list also includes righty Mitch Keller, third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes, and center fielder Bryan Reynolds.

Brubaker has experienced a whole lot of losing since making his major league debut on the second day of the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. The Pirates have gone 142-242 over the last three seasons and lost 101 games in 2021 and 100 games in 2022.
