The big southpaw was named the pitcher that Ivy League teams “least want to face” prior to his junior campaign at Harvard this spring by College Baseball Insider.
Suter was also considered one of the Ivy League’s top three starting pitchers by the publication and the hope is that this success carries on to the diamond at Spillane Field this summer for the Gatemen.
Though many of his numbers at the beginning of this past spring are not eye-popping, his most impressive statistic is that in 32 innings of work, he struck out 36 against 10 walks. In eight appearances (seven starts), he has also allowed 45 hits and is 2-4 with a 7.88 ERA.
As a sophomore at Harvard, Suter was a First Team All-Ivy League selection after going a league-best 4-0 with a 3.55 ERA and league-leading 33 strikeouts in 33 innings against league opponents. Overall, he went 4-2 in 49.2 innings of work, striking out 47 against just 14 walks. In 10 appearances (nine starts), he also allowed 62 hits and posted a 4-2 record and 5.26 ERA. Also used in the field, Suter hit .183 in 22 games with two doubles, two triples, and six RBI.
