Brummett made his major league debut with the Phillies this past September when he had his contract purchased by the Phillies for the final series of the season. With pitcher Tyler Cloyd ailing, the Phillies figured they would need another arm in the bullpen and selected Brummett.
The right-hander made his debut October 3rd, throwing 2/3 of an inning against Washington, allowing two hits, but no runs. He also struck out the two hitters that he retired.
Brummett split the season between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley, compiling a 5-6, 3.20 record between the two stops. Of his 44 minor league appearances, eight were starts.
