Sulser allowed a run on one hit in two-thirds of an inning, taking a blown save versus the White Sox on Sunday. The right-hander's strong June put him in the closer conversation in Baltimore, but he's now allowed five runs in just two innings across three July appearances. Sulser entered Sunday's game in the sixth inning and gave up a three-run home run to Andrew Vaughn, with two of those runs charged to Paul Fry. Through 32.2 innings overall, Sulser has a 3.31 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 44:15 K:BB. He'll likely continue to see time in high-leverage roles, as Baltimore has few dependable arms in its bullpen.
Sulser (2-1) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out a batter over a third of an inning as he took the loss Sunday against the Angels. Sulser was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth and completely imploded. He walked the leadoff batter and proceeded to give up back-to-back singles before Juan Lagares ended the game with a two-run double. Sulser had previously put up five consecutive scoreless outings before Sunday's meltdown and owns a 2.61 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 44:13 K:BB over 31 innings.
Sulser threw 1.2 scoreless innings Wednesday against the Astros while earning his third save of the year. He did not allow a hit and struck out one in the effort. Susler relieved Paul Fry with a man on and one out in the eighth and sent down all five batters he faced with relative ease. He picked up his second save over the last five days as it appears he'll continue to be in the mix for save opportunities for the time being. He could be an option to scoop up in AL-only leagues but overall still isn't very trustworthy on most rosters given the fact that he's in a committee on one of the worst teams in baseball. Sulser now owns a 2.05 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 43:12 K:BB over 30.2 innings.
Sulser walked one and struck out one in a scoreless 10th inning Friday to record his second save of the season in a 6-5 win over the Blue Jays. He earned this save by getting Vladimir Guerrero to ground into a double play with two on and nobody out. Both of Sulser's saves have come in June, and he's put himself back into the high-leverage mix for Baltimore with a 2.30 ERA and 40:10 K:BB through 27.1 innings on the year.
Sulser gave up two runs on two hits and struck out one in two-thirds of an inning during Thursday's 10-3 loss to Cleveland. The right-hander was able to get the last two outs of the fifth inning after Jorge Lopez exited the game. Sulser continued in the sixth inning, but allowed two batters to reach before Dillon Tate replaced him and allowed both inherited runners to score. Sulser has hit a rough patch with three runs allowed in his last 2.2 innings after a stretch of 8.2 scoreless frames. He has a 2.59 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 36:8 K:BB across 24.1 innings. He's added a 2-0 record, one save and one hold in 22 outings. Playing for cellar-dwelling Baltimore hasn't provided many high-leverage opportunities for most of the relievers on the roster.
