Pirates promote Brault to Double-A
The Pittsburgh Pirates promoted former Willmar Stingers’ pitcher Steven Brault to their Double-A affiliate in Altoona, Pennsylvania on Thursday.
Brault, who pitched for Willmar in 2012 and 2013, was 4-1 with a 3.02 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 65.2 innings pitched for Single-A Bradenton (Florida).
The Pirates acquired him from the Baltimore Orioles during the offseason for outfielder Travis Snider.
He is the seventh former Stinger to reach Double-A, joining Anthony Bemboom, Mitch Delfino, Hunter Dozier, Jordan Smith, Jacob Barnes and Kurt Spomer.
