Pitcher

Career

In 2017, Bummer made his major league debut with the Astros and appeared in 13 games out of their bullpen, posting an ERA of 3.86 over 33 innings pitched. After appearing in only 4 games with Houston in 2018 due to injury, Bummer was traded to the White Sox earlier this year as part of a package that also brought Tyler Clippard and David Robertson to Houston.

Aaron has spent most of his career splitting time between starting and relief roles but is now looking forward to providing stability for both pitching staffs while developing into more than just an inning eater or set up man; he wants to be considered one of (if not THE) best pitchers on his team someday. Aaron's nickname "The Beast" comes from former teammate Lance McCullers Jr., who called him that after seeing how much work he put into lifting weights during off season conditioning sessions...

which sounds about right given Aaron's intimidating presence on the mound. Outside of baseball Aaron enjoys spending time with friends and family, playing video games and hiking - you can probably expect him doing something physical when he takes the mound next.
