Player Outlook
There have been some incredible peaks and valleys in Jack Suwinski's young career. He's endured not one but two 0-for-29 stretches in his two seasons, the first earning him a trip back to the minors in 2022. The Pirates took a different approach to Suwinski's prolonged slump in 2023, instead giving him a few days off to work with his hitting coaches, which worked as Suwinski finished strong in September. Through it all he led Pittsburgh in home runs with 26, in turn becoming the fastest player in franchise history to reach 40 career homers. Suwinski improved against left-handed pitching in his sophomore season, though a .200/.295/.300 line is still hardly anything to write home about. He can also run as evidenced by his 81st percentile sprint speed and 13 steals in 15 attempts last season, so the power/speed potential is here if you can stomach the ups and downs and occasional days off against southpaws.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Bowing out against righty

    Suwinski is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals. Suwinski has mostly served as a strong-side platoon outfielder since being called up from Triple-A Indianapolis on June 4, but he'll step out of the lineup Wednesday against Cardinals right-hander Sonny Gray. Michael Taylor will replace Suwinski in center field.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Not starting Saturday

    Suwinski isn't in the Pirates' lineup Saturday against Minnesota. Suwinski has gone 3-for-13 with a homer and two RBI since returning to the majors Tuesday, and he'll now get a chance to rest versus Simeon Woods Richardson and the Twins. Michael Taylor will fill the void in center field and bat ninth.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Homers in return to majors

    Suwinski went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Dodgers. Suwinski was recalled to the majors Tuesday after Ji Hwan Bae (wrist) was placed on the injured list and Michael Taylor on the paternity list. Suwinski immediately returned to the lineup, manning center field while hitting ninth. He accounted for the only run of the contest with a solo home run in the third inning, a positive sign after he managed only four homers across his first 49 games before being demoted to Triple-A Indianapolis on May 22.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Bound for Triple-A

    The Pirates optioned Suwinski to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday. The lefty-hitting Suwinski has mostly operated as a strong-side platoon outfielder this season, but even against right-handed pitching, he's struggled to a .144/.256/.261 slash line over 129 plate appearances. The Pirates will send Suwinski to Indianapolis with the hope that he refines his approach and regains some confidence at the plate, but a return to the big leagues likely won't be imminent until he starts producing at Triple-A. In the meantime, Suwinski's absence could reopen more playing time at first base for Rowdy Tellez while Connor Joe takes on more starts out of the corner outfield.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Absent from lineup

    Suwinski is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The Giants are using a left-handed pitcher in Erik Miller to open Thursday's contest, so the lefty-hitting Suwinski will begin the game on the bench. Suwinski will be a candidate to enter mid-game if the Giants turn to a right-hander out of the bullpen.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Hitting bench Wednesday

    Suwinski is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The lefty-hitting Suwinski will take a seat Wednesday while southpaw Blake Snell toes the rubber for the Giants.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Getting breather versus LHP

    Suwinski isn't in the Pirates' lineup Saturday versus the Cubs. The lefty-hitting Suwinski will retreat to the bench as fellow lefty Shota Imanaga toes the slab for the Cubs on Saturday. As a result, Edward Olivares will pick up a start in right field and bat fourth.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: On bench against lefty

    Suwinski is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers. Lefty Robert Gasser is on the bump for Milwaukee, so the lefty-hitting Suwinski will retreat to the bench for the series finale. Edward Olivares will fill in for Suwinski in right field and will bat fifth.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Swipes two bags

    Suwinski went 1-for-3 with two walks and two stolen bases during Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Cubs. Suwinski entered the contest with one stolen base on the season, but he swiped second base twice during the extra-inning loss. The left-hander has almost exclusively started against right-handed pitching, with 107 of his 129 plate appearances coming against opposite-handed throwers. However, Suwinski is slashing just .129/.234/.304 against righties this season.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Idle against lefty

    Suwinski isn't starting Tuesday against the Athletics, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. Southpaw Alex Wood will toe the slab Tuesday for the A's, forcing Suwinski's left-handed bat out of the lineup. Edward Olivares will start in right field instead and bat fifth.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Yet to get on track

    Suwinski went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Brewers. Suwinski delivered an RBI double in the fifth inning and came around to score to give the Pirates the lead. It was his second consecutive start with a double, but he had only five hits in 24 at-bats across a seven-game homestand. Suwinski has cut his strikeout rate to 17.2 percent -- down from 32.2 percent in 2023 -- but that has yet to lead to positive results, as he's batting .183 with two home runs across 93 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Slugs key homer

    Suwinski went 2-for-4 with a walk and a grand slam Sunday against the Phillies. Suwinski belted a game-deciding grand slam in the sixth inning, his second long ball of the season. He's gotten off to a slow start to the new campaign, tallying only two multi-hit games and only one extra-base hit in addition to his long balls. On the other hand, Suwinski has shown some improvement in his skill profile, most notably that he's struck out only 17.2 percent of the time across 58 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Taking seat against southpaw

    Suwinski is not in the lineup for Thursday's contest in Philadelphia. The Phillies are sending southpaw Ranger Suarez to the hill, so the left-handed hitting Suwinski will get a breather. Bryan Reynolds and Edward Olivares will occupy the corner outfield spots for the Pirates.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Slugs first homer of 2024

    Suwinski went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored Wednesday against the Nationals. Suwinski tagged Nats reliever Robert Garcia for the solo shot in the sixth inning, moving the Pirates to within one run of Washington. While they would end up dropping their first game of the season, Suwinski managed to collect his first multi-hit performance of the campaign. The third-year big-leaguer hasn't done enough to cement himself as an everyday starter for Pittsburgh, but his mix of speed, power and youth makes him an intriguing fantasy option.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: On bench again against southpaw

    Suwinski is absent from the lineup for Friday's contest against the Marlins, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The Pirates have faced a lefty in each of the first two games of the season and Suwinski has been on the bench both times. Suwinski did get two plate appearances Thursday after entering as a pinch hitter and will be an option as a replacement again Friday. Edward Olivares is in right field.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Sitting against lefty

    Suwinski is out of the lineup for Thursday's season opener against the Marlins. The lefty-hitting Suwinski finds himself on the bench for Opening Day with Miami throwing left-hander Jesus Luzardo. Connor Joe will replace him in the corner outfield.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Hoping to improve against lefties

    Suwinski has worked on shortening his swing against left-handed pitching this offseason, Alex Stumpf of MLB.com reports. Suwinski had a positive overall season in 2023, posting a .793 OPS with a 112 wRC+ and .341 wOBA across 534 plate appearances. However, his OPS tumbled to .608 and he had only eight extra-base hits in 132 plate appearances against lefties. He's made adjustments to try to improve in that regard, though it's unclear if the Pirates will give him consistent run without the platoon advantage, as Bryan Reynolds is capable of shifting to center field while Connor Joe could enter the lineup against southpaws.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Getting back on track

    Suwinksi went 2-for-4 with an RBI on Thursday against the Phillies. Suwinski has had a poor second half of the season, though he's turned things around within the last few weeks. Since the start of September, he's maintained a .295 batting average (23-for-78) while hitting four home runs, driving in 16 and scoring 12 runs across 24 games. Despite some inconsistencies, Suwinski should be locked into a starting outfield role in Pittsburgh to begin 2024.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: Sitting against lefty

    Suwinski is not in the lineup Friday against the Reds. Miguel Andujar, Ji Hwan Bae and Henry Davis will start across the outfield as the Pirates take on left-hander Andrew Abbott. Suwinski has slashed just .178/.282/.257 in 117 plate appearances versus southpaws this year.

  • Pirates' Jack Suwinski: More consistent contact

    Suwinski went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Friday against Atlanta. Suwinski has slumped for nearly the entire second half of the season and had lost playing time as a result. However, with Andrew McCutchen (Achilles) out for the season, Suwinski should take over a strong-side platoon role between designated hitter and the corner outfield. His recent production provides some hope that he can take advantage of the opportunity, as he has three home runs across his last eight games and has limited his strikeout rate to a relatively low 23.1 percent clip in that span.
