Cincinnati signed Suter.

Major League Baseball’s official website MLB.com said on January 12 (Korea Standard Time) that the Cincinnati Reds signed left-hander Brent Suter.

Cincinnati signed Suter to a one-year, $3 million contract. Suter earns $2.5 million a year for the 2024 season and has a $3.5 million club option (buyout $500,000) for the 2025 season.

Thirty-four-year-old veteran Souter is from Cincinnati. He was born in Chicago, but grew up in Cincinnati and spent his school days. He was a graduate of Akbyshop Möller High School in Cincinnati. In fact, the city is the hometown team. According to MLB.com , Souter said, “I’m so excited. My dream has come true. The Cincinnati Reds are my favorite team growing up. I can’t believe it.”

Suter, born in 1989, was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 31st round of the 2012 Rookie Draft and made his big league debut in 2016. Although he was a low-ranked player, he played a valuable pitcher in the Major League. He switched between starting and bullpen early on in his debut, and he certainly switched to bullpen from the 2019 season.

His overall record in eight big league seasons is 464 innings in 253 games (41GS), 40 wins, 22 losses, 23 holds and one save, and an ERA of 3.49. Last year, he pitched stably in 57 games with four wins, three losses and seven holds and an ERA of 3.38, while using Coors Field as his home base for the Colorado Rockies. 랭크카지노도메인

Souter is one of the slowest pitchers in the Major League with an average fastball speed of 86 miles per hour recorded last year, but he has continued his career as a high-quality bullpen pitcher by banking on his ability to avoid hitting flat hits and induce grounders by utilizing sinkers. Last year, Souter ranked in the top 3 percent in the Major League in various categories including average ball speed, slugging allowance and barrel ball allowance.
