Suter (8-4) took the loss in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Mets. He allowed two runs (one earned) on a hit and a walk while failing to record an out. He also hit a batter. Suter allowed the first two batters he faced to reach before Jeff McNeil's walkoff two-run single completed the Mets' comeback. After a run of seven straight scoreless outings spanning 6.2 innings, Suter has given up three runs (two earned) in his last two appearances. For the year, he has a 3.70 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 41:15 K:BB, five holds and five blown saves through 41.1 innings.
Suter recorded two outs and picked up his fourth hold of the season in Tuesday's victory over the Reds. Suter was tagged for three earned runs his previous time out, but he bounced back with his sixth scoreless appearance in his last seven trips to the mound. Suter has not been as sharp early on as he was the last two seasons, and he 's not working in a role that is typically fantasy-friendly. However, he is providing more value than your standard middle reliever, as in addition to his four holds he has six wins -- a mark that ties him for the team lead.
Suter was reinstated from the bereavement list Tuesday. He was out of his element in his last appearance, giving up three earned runs over 2.1 innings as a starter May 7 in Miami. Suter will work as a fireman out of the bullpen going forward. He logged a 2.70 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 15 strikeouts in 16.2 innings over 12 appearances prior to that most recent outing.
Suter (calf) landed on the bereavement list Saturday. Suter will be eligible to return as soon as Tuesday. It's unclear whether or not he's expected to do so, as he's also dealing with calf cramps after exiting his start Friday against the Marlins after just 2.1 innings.
Suter exited Friday's game against the Marlins due to right calf cramps, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports. Suter left Friday's spot start with a trainer after just 2.1 innings, but his calf issue likely won't force him to miss significant time. The left-hander will likely be available out of the bullpen in the near future.
