Suter gave up three earned runs on three hits and five walks in 1.2 innings Wednesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Dodgers. He took the loss.
Suter needs to get by on command and deception, and the five walks, two of which were with the bases loaded, were essentially a sign that he would rather give up one run at a time than let the Dodgers blow the game completely open. The rest of the Brewers' relievers held up their end of the bargain, as the Brewers outscored the Dodgers after Suter exited, but Suter had already given up the deciding runs in a 4-2 loss. He probably won't pitch again in this series.
Suter will start Wednesday against the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series.
The injury to Corbin Burnes (oblique) will force Milwaukee to look outside its usual rotation for the playoff opener, and Suter will receive the starting nod. The left-hander made four spot starts throughout the season, allowing two runs on six hits with 16 strikeouts and four walks over 13 innings. Suter's highest pitch count of the season was 59 pitches in his last appearance Sept. 25, but the Brewers could decide to ride him a bit longer Wednesday since he already won't be available for the next two games in the series.
Suter didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, allowing two hits and a walk over four scoreless innings in a 3-0 win. He struck out four.
In his longest outing of the year, Suter tossed 59 pitches (36 strikes) before handing things over to the bullpen. The southpaw likely won't pitch again this season, leaving him with a 3.13 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 38:5 K:BB through 31.2 innings over 16 appearances (four starts).

Suter has not eclipsed three innings of work while serving as a spot starter and reliever this year, so expect a similar workload for the southpaw Friday. Josh Lindblom will take the ball for the nightcap.
Suter allowed two hits and a pair of walks while striking out three over three scoreless innings in a no-decision in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Cardinals.
Suter had another good turn as an opener -- for the second straight outing, he posted three scoreless innings. The southpaw lowered his ERA to 3.12 with a 1.12 WHIP and 33 strikeouts across 26 innings this season. Three of his 14 appearances have been as an opener, and Suter also sees work in long relief at times.

The 31-year-old made a spot start in place of Brett Anderson (hip) over the weekend and delivered three scoreless innings with six strikeouts, and he'll receive the starting nod again during Milwaukee's second twin bill in three days. Suter threw 46 pitches during that outing and is likely to have a similar workload Wednesday. The quick-working southpaw has a 3.52 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 30:2 K:BB through 23 innings this season.
Suter worked three scoreless frames while taking a no-decision in his start Saturday in the Brewers' 4-2 loss to the Cubs. He struck out six and gave up a base hit and no walks.
The Brewers summoned Suter to start on short notice after Brett Anderson (hip) was scratched from the outing. Considering the circumstances, Suter likely fared even better than Milwaukee could have hoped, as he induced 10 swinging strikes in just 46 pitches. Milwaukee is listing Anderson as day-to-day for the time being, but if he's forced to miss more time, Suter could get the chance to stretch out a little more and make another start or two before the regular season draws to a close.
Suter will start Saturday's game against the Cubs, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Suter will step in to make the start Saturday in place of Brett Anderson, who was scratched due to right hip tightness. Manager Craig Counsell said that he expects the team to utilize a bullpen game, so it's unlikely that Suter will last very long, especially since he hasn't pitched more than three innings in any of his appearances this year.
Suter threw two scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Friday's victory over Cleveland.
As expected, Suter returned to the bullpen after making a spot start earlier in the week. Suter gave up four earned runs over his first two outings of the season, but he has allowed the same number in 15.1 innings over his last nine outings and has also posted an 18:1 K:BB and 0.91 WHIP over that span.
Suter gave up two runs on a hit and a walk while striking out three over three innings in a no-decision versus the Pirates on Monday.
Erik Gonzalez hit a two-run homer against Suter, but the southpaw was otherwise solid in his spot start. The 31-year-old has compiled a 4.08 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 21 strikeouts across 17.2 innings this season. Suter will likely return to a bullpen role going forward -- his nine previous appearances this year came in relief.
Suter will start Monday's game against the Pirates, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Suter will be the first to toe the rubber for Milwaukee on Monday as the team plans to rely heavily on its bullpen. It'll be the southpaw's first start in the past two seasons. To begin the year, Suter made nine relief appearances while posting a 3.68 ERA and 18:1 K:BB over 14.2 innings.
Suter pitched the seventh inning of Tuesday's 3-2 victory over the Reds and struck out all three batters he faced.
Suter allowed his first runs since July 28 his last time out, but he got right back on track Tuesday, needing just 14 pitches to get through his lone inning. Suter is not being used in a fantasy-friendly role, but he allowed just two runners to cross the plate over his last 10.1 frames (1.74 ERA) and owns a stellar 18:1 K:BB over 14.2 innings this season.
Suter picked up his second win of the season in Sunday's victory over the Reds. He tossed two innings and allowed three hits in the contest.
Suter allowed two earned runs in each of his first two outings of the season, but he been far better since, tossing two scoreless innings in each of his last two appearances while giving up four hits and posting a 3:0 K:BB. He will continue holding down a multi-inning role out of the Brewers bullpen.
Suter gave up four runs (two earned) over 1.2 innings out of the bullpen in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates. He allowed three hits, hit a batter and posted a 2:1 K:BB in the contest.
Suter ended the 2019 season on a high note, winning the NL's Reliever of the Month award in September, but things have not gone nearly as well for him to kick off the 2020 campaign. Suter has tossed a total of 4.1 innings over two outings and has given up four earned runs while allowing eight runners to reach base. Last season's finish still presumably trumps this year's start, though, so expect Suter to remain manager Craig Counsell's preferred long-relief option for the time being.
Suter allowed five earned runs over five innings in three appearances this spring. He gave up nine hits and posted a 4:2 K:BB.
Suter worked primarily as a starter in 2017 and 2018, but he pitched exclusively in relief last September after recovering from Tommy John surgery and will remain in that role when the 2020 campaign begins. Suter was not particularly sharp this spring, but he was last season, giving up just one earned run over 18.1 innings (0.49 ERA) out of the bullpen. He will not be part of the late-inning mix, but he does figure to cover multiple innings frequently, which will help his chances of picking up wins.
Suter agreed to a two-year contract with the Brewers on Sunday, avoiding arbitration.
The 30-year-old's arbitration hearing was scheduled for Monday, but he's now officially under contract with the team through 2021. Suter underwent Tommy John surgery in August 2018, but he returned from the injured list when rosters expanded in September and had a 0.49 ERA, 0.60 WHIP and 15:1 K:BB to go along with a 4-0 record over 18.1 innings. The left-hander has an outside chance at a rotation spot in spring training, but his success out of the bullpen last season provides him with some solid security for a roster spot.
Suter pitched three scoreless innings and picked up his fourth win of the season in Tuesday's victory over the Reds.
Suter entered Tuesday in the fifth inning in relief of Adrian Houser, and although he found himself in jams in both his second and third frames, he kept the Reds off the scoreboard and picked up his fourth win in 17 days. Suter missed most of the season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he has been huge for the Brewers in September, allowing just one earned run in 17.1 innings (0.52 ERA) while posting a 0.58 WHIP and 14:1 K:BB.
Suter will not be allowed to pitch on back-to-back days this season, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
It has been a pretty remarkable recovery for Suter, who underwent Tommy John surgery on Aug. 1, 2018 and has made it back in time to be a weapon out of the bullpen for the surging Brewers. He has asked to be allowed to pitch on back-to-back days, but manager Craig Counsell said it was "doctor's orders" to give him a rest day following every appearance. Suter, who last pitched Tuesday, has a 0.73 ERA, 0.41 WHIP, 10 strikeouts and two wins in 12.1 innings (six appearances) since being activated at the start of the month.
Suter (2-0) earned the win Wednesday at Miami after allowing one hit over three scoreless innings. He struck out two and walked none.
The quick-working lefty made quick work of the Marlins' order, needing only 35 pitches to work through the three frames. Suter joined the big-league roster at the start of September -- only 13 months removed from Tommy John surgery -- and has given up only one run on five hits with seven strikeouts and zero walks over his first 9.1 innings.
Suter (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Sunday.
Suter underwent Tommy John surgery Aug. 1 last season and has been working his way back since. In his most recent rehab work, Suter has looked dominant, racking up 18 strikeouts across 11.2 scoreless frames with Triple-A San Antonio. He worked four innings and threw 57 pitches in his most recent outing, meaning he should be set to work long appearances -- or even as a spot starter -- for the team to close the season.
