Dragmire with the Dunedin Blue Jays in 2015
|Born: February 5, 1993|
Dragmire attended Bradshaw Christian High School in Sacramento, California, and was drafted by the Blue Jays in the 17th round of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft. He was assigned to the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League Blue Jays and made one appearance for the team that season, allowing three earned runs in one inning. In 2013, Dragmire was promoted to the Rookie-Advanced Bluefield Blue Jays of the Appalachian League, where he amassed a 2.16 ERA while both starting and relieving.
Dragmire continued his progression through the Blue Jays minor league organization in 2014, pitching with the Class-A Lansing Lugnuts exclusively out of the bullpen, and in 2015, when he was promoted to the Advanced-A Dunedin Blue Jays and struggled to a 5.26 ERA. In the offseason, Dragmire pitched in nine games for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, and posted a 0.82 ERA in 11 innings. On November 18, 2015, Dragmire was added to the Blue Jays' 40-man roster, to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. He was assigned to the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats to open the 2016 minor league season.
On September 27, 2016, Dragmire was designated for assignment to make room on Toronto's 40-man roster for Chris Smith, beginning a whirlwind offseason for the pitcher that saw him traded for cash considerations to the Pittsburgh Pirates and then bounced between Pittsburgh and the Texas Rangers on waiver claims multiple times, ultimately being designated for assignment five times from late September through January. He finally cleared waivers in the Rangers organization and was outrighted from the 40-man roster on January 27, assigned to the Class-AAA Round Rock Express. After starting the season with the Express, Dragmire was released on June 16, 2017. He was signed by the Washington Nationals and assigned to the Class-AA Harrisburg Senators. He pitched both in relief and as a starter for the Senators, racking up a 3.13 ERA for the season despite an equal number of strikeouts and walks, 21 apiece.
Dragmire received an invitation to major league spring training in advance of the Nationals' 2018 season, coincidentally joining Smith, for whom the Blue Jays had designated him for assignment in 2016, among Washington's non-roster invitees for the spring. He did not make the team, returning to Class-AA Harrisburg as a full member of the rotation. On April 28, 2018, he carried a perfect-game bid into the sixth inning and ended up pitching eight shutout, one-hit innings against the Altoona Curve. He was promoted to the Class-AAA Syracuse Chiefs as a starter in June 2018. He elected free agency on November 2, 2018.
