2018 Fantasy Outlook
Suter was seemingly being counted on as a "Swiss Army Knife" pitcher from spring training through the end of June last year, as up to that point he had already started and pitched in relief for both the big club and for Triple-A Colorado Springs. However, following a July 3 start in which he dominated the Orioles, he was a regular in the starting rotation, making 13 starts the rest of the way. He hardly blew batters away, as evidenced by his 85.8 mph average fastball and 7.0 K/9, but he was also plenty effective, posting a 3.24 ERA from July onward. That showing alone was not enough to guarantee him a place in the Brewers' rotation for 2018, but he figures to get a chance to compete for a spot in spring training. If he does not open the year as a starter, the team could opt to keep him stretched out in the minors, or use him out of the bullpen after watching him holding opposing left-handers to a .192 average in 2017.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Suter made his major league debut with the Brewers after five seasons in the minors when he was called up to make a spot start in August. He was actually the first left-hander to start a game for Milwaukee in nearly three years, breaking a streak that went back to Tom Gorzelanny's start on August 28, 2013. The 27-year-old stuck around in the bullpen after his first start, eventually posting a solid 3.32 ERA. However, his 4.39 FIP makes that success seem mostly luck-driven, especially considering he didn't post a great groundball rate (43.3 percent) or any other notable batted ball numbers, except for an unsustainable 24 percent infield flyball rate. Suter's fastball also lives in the mid-80s, decimating his upside as a starter or reliever. He will likely fight for a bullpen spot in spring training, but could also be used for occasional starts in 2017.
