Tyson Colby Brummett (born August 15, 1984) is an American professional baseball pitcher in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization. He played in Major League Baseball for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Early career[edit]

Brummett attended Spanish Fork High School in Spanish Fork, Utah. After graduating, the San Francisco Giants selected Brummett in the 35th round of the 2003 Major League Baseball Draft. Brummett chose not to sign, instead enrolling at Central Arizona College. The Giants again selected Brummett, this time in the 38th round of the 2004 Major League Baseball Draft, but he opted to transfer to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where he played college baseball for the UCLA Bruins.[1]

The Phillies drafted Brummett out of UCLA in the seventh round of the 2007 MLB Draft.[2]

Minor leagues[edit]

Brummett spent 2007 and 2008 in the lower levels of the Phillies' farm system before being promoted to the Double-A Reading Phillies in 2008. He split his time in the years between 2009 and 2012 between the Single-A Clearwater Threshers, Reading, and the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs, posting a 14–30 win–loss record over 121 games, including 30 starts.

Philadelphia Phillies[edit]

Brummett's contract was purchased by the Philadelphia Phillies on September 30, 2012, four games prior to the season's conclusion. One month after last pitching in a game, Brummett had returned home to Utah to ready himself for winter baseball.[3] Brummett made his major league debut in the last game of the season, on October 3.[4] Brummett entered the game in the bottom of the 8th inning in relief of Jonathan Papelbon with one out. After giving up consecutive singles to the first two batters he faced, he struck out Jesús Flores and pinch hitter Chad Tracy to end the inning.[5]

Toronto Blue Jays[edit]

The Blue Jays claimed Brummett off waivers from the Phillies on October 18, 2012. He was designated for assignment on October 23 to make room for David Herndon.[6] According to the Jays transaction page, Brummett was assigned outright to their Triple-A affiliate Buffalo Bisons on October 26. On February 17, The Blue Jays invited Brummett to Spring Training as a non roster invitee.

Brummett started the 2013 season with the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats, and was called up to the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on April 8. On April 11, Brummett was sent back to the Fisher Cats.

Los Angeles Dodgers[edit]

Brummet signed a minor league deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers in February 2014 and was assigned to the AA Chattanooga Lookouts, where he was selected to the mid-season Southern League all-star team.

Tiburones de La Guaira[edit]
