The Milwaukee Brewers have officially placed left-handed starting pitcher Brent Suter on their 10-day disabled list, the club announced on Sunday morning. Suter has been forced to the sideline for at least the next week-and-a-half due to what has been diagnosed as a strained left rotator cuff.
With the Brewers previously acquiring second baseman Neil Walker from the New York Mets over the weekend, the National League Central ball club has also elected to designate right-handed relief pitcher Michael Blazek for assignment.
The soon-to-be 28-year-old Suter is currently in the midst of his second big league season, both of which have come as a member of the Brewers. After making 14 regular-season appearances en route to two starts as a rookie last season, the up-and-coming southpaw has since made 16 regular-season appearances accompanied by nine starts this time around.
Over the course of a single-season career-high 59.1 innings of work thus far into the 2017 regular season, Suter has compiled a respectable 3.79 ERA. Adding an even 2-2 record as well, he has already struck out 39 opposing batters while walking 18 others. For his major league career as a whole, he currently owns a 3.67 ERA alongside a 4-4 record, two holds, 64 strikeouts and 23 walks across 30 regular-season appearances, 11 starts and a total of 80 innings of work.
Entering play on Sunday afternoon against the rival Cincinnati Reds, the Brewers will be sporting a 60-59 record, good for third place in the National League Central division.
