TOP NL UTR PITCHING PERFORMANCE RHP Trey Supak (LoA Wisconsin – Milwaukee) 20 years old 5.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 11 K, Win Season Stats: 1-2, 2.40 ERA, 30 IP, 16 H, 8 ER, 7 BB, 42 K in 6 appearances with 5 starts
- Supak was a 2nd round supplemental pick by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2014, but his performance never reached that of a top pick prospect. He was hindered in 2015 with a shoulder issue and was later traded to the Brewers in December. That trade also included Keon Broxton, so no doubt that the Brewers got a steal. Supak is definitely an under the radar arm within the Brewers system. Since the joining the club, the right-hander has been solid in posting respectable numbers in 2016 and is off to a great start in 2017. The 20-year old has a good mix of pitches with the potential to be a decent #3 starter. If he can maintain his performance throughout the season, look for Supak crack the Brewers Top 25.
- South Bend has been using Robinson in making piggy-back outings with (him making) seven appearances including three starts. However, the 9th round pick in 2016 out of Dartmouth has been lights-out as a starter. Over those three starts, Robinson holds a 0.52 ERA in 17.1 innings, surrendering 10 hits, one ER, three walks, and 9 punch outs. As you can see, the right-hander doesn’t overpower hitters, relying on control and deception.
