Suter, Brewers avoid arbitration, reach 2-year, $2.5M deal

PHOENIX (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Brent Suter has reached a two-year, $2.5 million deal that avoids an arbitration hearing that had been set for next week.

The 30-year-old Suter returned from Tommy John surgery last September and went 4-0 with a 0.49 ERA in nine relief appearances in helping the Brewers earn an NL wild-card spot.

Suter had mostly been a starter the previous two seasons with Milwaukee before having elbow surgery in July 2018.

He is expected to be used out of the bullpen this year.
