Suggs teamed with roommate Barrett Astin in the back of Arkansas' bullpen to lead the Razorbacks to the College World Series last year. This season Astin moved into the weekend rotation, handing Suggs the closer role, and both have thrived. Scouting directors voted Suggs a preseason first-team All-American, then had a bit of a hard time seeing him, as he made just 18 appearances covering 16 innings through early May. He has had command issues throughout his career thanks to a delivery that produces power but features plenty of effort. The 6-foot, 225-pounder has hit 97-98 mph with his fastball and sits in the 93-96 range with heavy life when he's down in the zone. When he leaves it up, the pitch straightens out and gets hittable. His hard breaking ball gives him another swing-and-miss pitch. Some clubs might send him out as a starter to get him innings, smooth out his delivery and see if he can throw more strikes. Others see him as a future power reliever in the third- to fourth-round range.
