 Biographical Information
Brummett was picked in the 35th round of the 2003 amateur draft by the San Francisco Giants out of high school. He went 3-1 with 6 saves and a 2.10 ERA as a college freshman, then was taken by the Giants again in the 38th round of the 2004 amateur draft. As a sophomore, he was 4-6 with a save and a 2.67 ERA. That summer, he had a 5-3, 3.70 record for the Mankato MoonDogs of the Northwoods League. Transferring to UCLA, he posted a 6-7, 4.52 record in 2006. Back with Mankato, he was 4-4 with a 1.40 ERA (4th lowest in the league). As a senior, he went 10-6 with a 4.04 ERA to win All-Pacific-10 Conference honors. Among those he beat that year were Tyson Ross, Wes Roemer, Preston Guilmet and Barry Enright. The Philadelphia Phillies chose him in the 7th round of the 2007 amateur draft. The scout was Tim Kissner.
Brummett began his pro career with the Williamsport Crosscutters, going 5-5 with a 3.40 ERA and only 14 walks in 76 2/3 IP. In 2008, he was with the Lakewood BlueClaws (3-0, 1.95), Clearwater Threshers (2-3, 3.59) and Reading Phillies (2-0, 7.28, 46 BB in 80 1/3 IP). The next year, he again showed a poor record overall with stops for Clearwater (7 R in 5 IP), Reading (3-9, 2 Sv, 5.22) and the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (0-1, 6 R in 4 IP). During 2010, the right-hander fared better in a relief role for Clearwater (1 R, 7 H in 15 IP; 2 Sv) and Reading (1-2, Sv, 5.01 in 28 G).
In 2011, the Mississippi native pitched for Reading (4-8, 4.52) and Lehigh Valley (1-4, 5.82). Through that season, his career mark was 21-41, 4.74. In the winter of 2011-2012, he was 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA for the Tiburones de La Guaira. That impressed the Tigres de Aragua, who added him to their roster for the 2012 Caribbean Series. In that event, he allowed two runs in six innings and took the loss against the eventual champion Leones del Escogido. He began 2012 back with Reading and was 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in 10 outings before being promoted to the AAA IronPigs. He was 4-6 with a 3.62 ERA in 34 games for Lehigh Valley and earned a late-season call-up to the Phillies. He made his big league debut on the season's final day. Facing the Washington Nationals, he relieved Jonathan Papelbon with a 5-1 deficit and one out in the bottom of the 8th. He allowed back-to-back singles to Ian Desmond and Danny Espinosa before striking out Jesus Flores and Chad Tracy.
