2020 Fantasy Outlook
Suero graduated from middle relief to a setup role in his sophomore campaign and notched 19 holds while ranking third in the majors with 78 appearances. On the surface, his 4.54 ERA and 1.26 WHIP suggest a step backward from his rookie season. However, the right-hander's 3.06 FIP and improved strikeout numbers reveal moderate growth. Suero continued to rely heavily on his cutter in 2019, throwing it 72.1% of the time. His velocity on the pitch increased by over a full tick last season, resulting in a solid 28.4 K% -- nearly six percentage points higher than the mark he posted with the cutter in 2018. Suero's Achilles heel in 2019 was the big inning; he held opponents scoreless in 59 of his 78 outings but gave up multiple earned runs in 11 of the other 19 appearances. If Suero can improve his consistency and retain a high-leverage role in 2020, he could emerge as a viable option in holds leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Struggles to find plate in spring
PWashington Nationals
March 22, 2020
Suero posted a 0.00 ERA but shaky 4:4 K:BB through six spring innings.
ANALYSIS
On the bright side, the right-hander allowed only one hit in Grapefruit League action before MLB was put on pause. Suero was expected to fill a middle-relief role to begin the season following the acquisition of Will Harris, but his improving K-rate and 3.06 FIP in 2019 suggest he could handle high-leverage work if called upon.

Stat Review
How does Wander Suero compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
