MLB Pipeline is the premier spot for prospect news and rankings. Every year the Pipeline goes through each team and names their best hitting and pitching prospect. To qualify, the players had to have spent half the year in the minors and they had to have appeared on the Pipeline’s Top 30 list for each team. For the Brewers, Trent Grisham was rated the best hitter which was an easy, unsurprising choice, and for the best Milwaukee Brewers pitching prospect, MLB Pipeline went with Trey Supak.
Trey Supak is a 23-year-old, 6’5” 240 pound righty who has been pitching in the minors since he was 18 back in 2014. Supak has four pitches which are a fastball, curveball, changeup, and cutter, that he can throw for strikes. He has confidence to throw each pitch no matter the count which makes him a very effective pitcher. Despite his enormous size, Supak only has average velocity, he throws his fastball in the low to mid 90s but can sometimes reach 95. He is a pitcher who projects to be a number four or five starter in the majors.
This season, when combining Supak’s AA and AAA numbers, he was 12-6 with a 3.60 ERA in 152.2 innings pitched. He also had 118 strikeouts and a very good WHIP of 1.028. Although he had a very consistent year, Supak demonstrated the ability to dominate at times. In fact, he came one out away from a no-hitter twice in Double-A.
Next season, Supak is almost a lock to start next season in Triple-A barring any setbacks or incredible spring training play. If he shows success at the Triple-A level, Brewer fans should expect to see the righty as soon as late May or early June.
