Overall

Suero closes ballgames for Harrisburg and shows some capability to be a middle-relief option because of the quirkiness, deception and movement in his pitching profile. He’s already 25 years old so there isn’t much projectability left, he kind of is what he is, which is a quality minor league relief arm who uses deception and movement effectively. However, he lacks the pure stuff to be anything more than an average relief pitcher at best.

Control: 50/50
Command: 50/50
