Robert Joseph LaFromboise (born June 25, 1986) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates of Major League Baseball (MLB).


LaFromboise attended Warren High School in Downey, California, Rio Hondo College in Whittier, California, and the University of New Mexico. In 2008, he led the team with 63 strikeouts in 81.1 innings pitched, along with tossing two complete games.[1]

The Seattle Mariners selected LaFromboise in the eighth round of the 2008 MLB Draft. They promoted him to the major leagues for the first time on April 10, 2013.[2]

LaFromboise was claimed off waivers by the San Diego Padres on April 2, 2014,[3] and optioned to the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas. He was recalled on April 9 for a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians, as the Padres' 26th man,[4] but did not appear in either game and was returned to Triple-A immediately thereafter. LaFromboise was designated for assignment on August 20, 2014.[5] The Pittsburgh Pirates claimed LaFromboise on August 24, and optioned him to AAA.[6] On September 2, 2014 LaFromboise was called up to the majors. He made his first postseason appearance for the Pirates, pitching in the 2014 National League Wild Card Game.
