Whatever Happened to Pittsburgh Pirates Pitcher Brandon Cumpton?

During the Pittsburgh Pirates playoff runs of 2013 to 2015, the Bucs had a handful of pitchers they relied on. You probably remember Gerrit Cole, Francisco Liriano, Jeff Locke, Charlie Morton, A.J. Burnett, and a few others. But one you probably don’t remember that was occasionally given starts was right hander Brandon Cumpton.

After an initial good showing early in his career, Cumpton kind of just fell out of everyone’s minds. What happened to him?

Cumpton was the Pittsburgh Pirates 9th round pick during the 2010 draft.
