Pirates' Andrew Susac: In running for backup spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac, who went 4-for-13 with four walks in Grapefruit League action this spring, remains one of three catchers in the running to back up starter Jacob Stallings, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

The Pirates brought both Susac and John Ryan Murphy to camp as non-roster invitees. The third catcher, Luke Maile, likely has an edge in the competition, given that he is not only strong defensively, but he is also already on the 40-man roster. In any event, Susac is looking to stay healthy after missing most of 2019 with a fractured wrist. His last big-league action came in 2018, when he appeared in nine games with the Orioles. Susac, who recently turned 30, has slashed .221/.283/.373 with seven homers in 300 career major-league plate appearances. The pathway is clear for him to at least see action at Triple-A Indianapolis in the event he fails to make the Opening Day roster.

Pirates' Andrew Susac: Joins catching-light organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac agreed to a minor-league contract with the Pirates on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

This is one of the better landing spots for Susac, as the Pirates severely lack quality catching depth in the upper levels. Jacob Stallings and Luke Maile project to break camp on the 26-man roster, so Susac could possibly win a big-league job with a good spring training. He enters his age-30 season with a career .221/.283/.373 slash line and 0.3 fWAR in 300 MLB plate appearances with three organizations. Susac has also missed significant time in several seasons due to injuries.

Royals' Andrew Susac: Shipped to KC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac was traded from the Orioles to the Royals for cash.

Susac provides the Royals with some organizational catching depth in case fill-in options Martin Maldonado and Cam Gallagher fail to get it done at the big-league level. He is not on the 40-man roster, so it is unclear when or if he will join the Roayls in the majors.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Susac was sent to the Tides after passing through waivers unclaimed. The backstop was limited by ankle and wrist injuries in 2018 -- the latter of which required surgery in July -- playing in just 42 games for Norfolk and hitting .256/.405/.456 in those appearances. Across parts of five big-league seasons (113 games), Susac owns a combined .221/.283/.373 slash line.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday.

The catcher was removed from the roster to make room for Hanser Alberto, who was claimed off waivers from the Yankees. Susac appeared in nine games for the Orioles last season, going 3-for-26 at the plate.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Back from restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac (wrist) was reinstated from the restricted list Tuesday.

Susac fractured his wrist in late July and was presumed to be out for the season. He's now no longer on the disabled list or the restricted list, but nothing appears to have changed in regard to his availability going forward.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Placed on restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac (wrist) was placed on the restricted list Tuesday.

Susac had already been ruled out for the season after fracturing his left wrist, so this move simply frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Tuesday's starter, Josh Rogers, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move. The backstop spent most of the season with the Tides, slashing .256/.405/.456 across 158 plate appearances.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Out for season after fracturing wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac was diagnosed Sunday with a fractured left wrist, David Hall of The Virginian-Pilot reports. He was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Norfolk with the injury, which will end his season.

Susac suffered the injury after fouling a ball off himself Thursday. The backstop, who previously appeared in nine games with the Orioles, spent most of the 2018 campaign at Norfolk and slashed .256/.405/.456 across 158 plate appearances. He seems likely to be removed from the 40-man roster at some point in the coming months.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Likely DL bound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac (forearm) will likely require a DL stint after taking a foul ball off his arm Thursday, David Hall of the Virginian Pilot reports.

The veteran catcher was spotted wearing a brace where the ball hit him and the club is still waiting word on whether the arm is broken. In any case, the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate will have to lean on Chance Sisco in the interim if Susac is sidelined for an extended period.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday.

Susac hit just .115/.115/.154 across 26 plate appearances during his time with the big club, so he'll report back to the Tides, where he'll serve as organizational catching depth. A corresponding roster move will be announced prior to Sunday's series finale against the Yankees.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Heads to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles recalled Susac from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.

Susac didn't show enough in spring training to warrant a spot on the 25-man roster, but with starter Caleb Joseph struggling -- and now demoted to Triple-A -- he will get another chance in the majors. Susac has hit well for Norfolk this season with a .296/.424/.537 slash line, but does have a worrisome 21 strikeouts in 54 at-bats. The 28-year-old is likely to serve as the Orioles' reserve catcher with Chance Sisco as the primary option behind the plate.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac (ankle) was activated from the 7-day disabled list Wednesday.

Susac is good to go after missing around two weeks with an ankle injury. The 28-year-old backstop will look to pick up where he left off prior to getting injured, as he was hitting a healthy .359/.479/.615 through 11 games with the Tides.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Lands on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac was placed on the 7-day disabled list due to an ankle injury, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Susac sustained the injury during Wednesday's game and will be sidelined for at least a week. The catcher has a slash line of .359/.479/.615 with two home runs and 12 RBI through 11 games with Triple-A Norfolk this season.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Sidelined with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac is day-to-day after injuring his ankle in Wednesday's game with Triple-A Norfolk, David Hall of The Virginian-Pilot reports.

This injury comes at an unfortunate time, as Susac had been hitting .351 with nine RBI with the Tides prior to the injury. It's unclear how severe the injury is, though it's promising that he wasn't placed on the disabled list right away.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The Orioles decided to keep Chance Sisco as the backup catcher on the Opening Day roster, sending Susac back to the minors for the start of the season. The 28-year-old has only played in 31 big-league games over the past two years, going just 5-for-29 at the plate with the Brewers during that span. He will likely remain at the Triple-A level barring an injury to Caleb Joseph or Sisco.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Returns to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac (illness) is back with the team after dealing with a staph infection earlier this week, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Susac wound up spending a couple days in the hospital due to this issue, though it appears that he will be able to return to baseball activities by the end of this weekend. After being discharged Tuesday, the catcher went home for a couple days before heading back to the Orioles' camp. The 27-year-old will compete for a spot on the club's Opening Day roster after being a part of Milwaukee's organization for the past two years.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Released from hospital
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac (illness) was released from the hospital Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Susac is set to return home after spending the past few days in the hospital with a staph infection. The backstop is expected to rest at home for a couple of days before reporting to camp, where he'll look to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster as the Orioles' backup catcher.

Orioles' Andrew Susac: Dealing with staph infection
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac is expected to held out of the next 3-to-4 days of Orioles camp due to a possible staph infection, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Susac was set to compete with prospect Chance Sisco for the reserve catching gig this spring, but his absence for the next few days already puts him in a hole. The Orioles are expected to bring in an additional catcher or two from their minor-league camp in order to cover for Susac.

February 2, 2018 01:16 PM
Orioles' Andrew Susac: Traded to Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac was dealt to the Orioles on Friday in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named later.

Susac was recently designated for assignment by the Brewers in order to make room for Matt Albers. Instead of losing him to waivers, Milwaukee was able to strike a deal for the 27-year-old, who wound up appearing in eight big-league games for the team in 2017. This now places four catchers on the Orioles' 40-man roster, although it's likely that Susac will begin the year at the Triple-A level, where he's spent a majority of his time the past couple seasons.

January 30, 2018 05:24 PM
Brewers' Andrew Susac: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Susac was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Tuesday.

The Brewers needed to open a spot on their 40-man following the addition of free agent Matt Albers, and Susac was the roster casualty. The 27-year-old backstop has struggled since joining the Brewers in a midsummer trade in 2016, appearing in just 17 games for the big club and failing to produce in the hitter-friendly environment at Triple-A Colorado Springs (.205/.307/.404 in 202 plate appearances in 2017). He'll take a spin through waivers to determine where he'll report when spring training rolls around.
