Pirates Activate Starter for Final Start

The Pittsburgh Pirates activated starter JT Brubaker from the 15-day injured list. 

Brubaker was on a pitch count in his final start of the 2022 season on Tuesday night against the St. Louis Cardinals. 
Brubaker allowed three runs across 2.2 innings of work in the Pirates' extra-innings loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday. 

The Pirates obviously didn't want to work Brubaker too hard in his first start back from a lat injury, as the twenty-eight-year-old recorded just eight outs. 

Brubaker finishes his up-and-down season with an overall ERA of 4.69, a 1.47 WHIP, and 147 strikeouts over 144 innings. He made 28 starts and held an ugly 3-12 record. 

The good news for Brubaker is that he's now healthy entering the offseason. The right-handed pitcher still has three years of arbitration left with the Pirates.
