Scouting Report

2020

A supplemental second-round pick by the Pirates in 2014, Supak joined the Brewers along with Keon Broxton in the December 2015 trade that sent Jason Rogers to Pittsburgh. The right-hander made a slow but efficient climb through the Brewers’ system before breaking out and reaching Double-A for the first time in 2018. He posted a 2.91 ERA over 16 starts at Biloxi to earn a spot on the Brewers’ 40-man roster, then garnered Southern League Most Outstanding Pitcher honors last season in his return to the level, going 11-4 with a 2.20 ERA in 20 starts. After compiling a 2.49 ERA over 209 1/3 Double-A innings, Supak moved up to Triple-A San Antonio in late July and allowed at least four earned runs in five of his seven starts.   

Supak is a sum-of-all-parts starter who knows how to mix and locate his pitches, though nothing he throws is plus. The 6-foot-5 right-hander uses his height to create angle to the plate that gives his low-90s fastball some heavy late life. His slider and changeup are above-average at their best and play well off his heater. The latter has steadily improved during Supak’s time in Milwaukee’s system and gives him a viable weapon to use against left-handed hitters. He rounds out his four-pitch mix with a fringy mid-70s curveball that he can land in the zone. Supak has near-plus control and throws strikes with each of his four pitches, albeit with underwhelming bat-missing ability and command that leaves something to be desired.

The Brewers view Supak’s stamina and durability as one of his greatest strengths -- he worked a career-high 152 2/3 innings in 2019, 12th-most among Minor League hurlers, after totaling 137 2/3 and 113 1/3 frames, respectively, during his first two full-season campaigns -- and note that he has improved his body ahead of the 2020 seasons, shedding nearly 20 pounds for his thick frame. He profiles as a back-of-the-rotation workhorse, perhaps even a No. 4 starter if he can improve his command and find a bit more velocity. 


2019

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 50 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 55 | Overall: 45

Signed for above slot value by the Pirates in 2014 after they drafted him in the supplemental second round, Supak spent two years in Pittsburgh's system before heading to the Brewers with Keon Broxton in a December 2015 trade. He struggled with the move up to Class A Advanced Carolina in 2017, but he returned there last season and earned honors as a mid-season All-Star before advancing to Double-A in late May. Supak pitched well in the Southern League, showing an impressive four-pitch mix en route to a 2.91 ERA over 16 starts, and the Brewers added him to their 40-man roster after the season.

Supak's velocity has improved as he's grown into his big frame and learned to better repeat his delivery, and he spent his breakout 2018 campaign sitting in the low 90s and touching 95 mph. The 6-foot-5 right-hander will use his height to create angle to the plate, showing feel for pounding the bottom of the zone or elevating his heater with some riding life. His slider and changeup have above-average potential, and he throws both more than he does his mid-70s curveball, a fringy pitch that he can locate for strikes. He's consistently around the zone with all four pitches, demonstrating an above-average control profile, though his command still requires refinement.

The fly-ball tendencies that hurt Supak at times in 2017 improved last season, as he generated more ground-ball contact and did a better job of keeping the ball in the park. His feel for mixing his pitches translates to solid, if unspectacular strikeout rates right now, and he might not miss as many bats at higher levels given his velocity and lack of a put-away pitch. That said, Supak has all the ingredients to be a successful big league starter, with size, stuff and feel for pitching that point to him becoming a durable, back-of-the-rotation asset for the Brewers.


2018

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 55 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 45

The Pirates went over-slot value to land Supak in the supplemental second round in 2014, giving the Texas prep hurler $1 million to forgo his commitment to the University of Houston. He pitched for two seasons in Pittsburgh's system before being shipped to the Brewers with Keon Broxton in December 2015. While the right-hander progressed nicely in Milwaukee's system before breaking out in 2017, when his improved stuff and bat-missing ability led to a dominant early-season showing with Class A Wisconsin followed by a promotion to Class A Advanced Carolina in May and a bump up to the Double-A level roughly a year later. 

Supak's fastball typically sits in the low 90s with late life, at times bumping 95 mph, and there should be more velocity to come as he continues to add strength to his projectable frame. He's learned to throw more downhill since being drafted, but needs to be even more consistent at it given his natural fly-ball tendencies. The Brewers laud Supak's feel for spinning the ball, as he shows present feel for locating a potentially above-average curveball, as well as his aptitude for throwing a fading changeup. 

Supak's progress in developing his three-pitch mix showed in 2017, as he held hitters to a .213 average while piling up 110 strikeouts over a career-high 113 1/3 frames. Supak still requires quite a bit of physical projection, needs to improve his fastball command and further refine his secondaries, but he could be a durable mid-rotation starter with three Major League average-or-better pitches when all is said and done.


2017

Scouting Grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 55 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 50

The Pirates went over slot value to land Supak, whose father and uncle both starred in college, in the supplemental second round in 2014, giving the Texas prep hurler $1 million to forgo his commitment to the University of Houston. But after two seasons in Pittsburgh's system, Supak was traded, along with Keon Broxton, to the Brewers in December. The right-hander has blossomed in his second full season in Milwaukee's system, showing improved stuff that earned him a midseason promotion to the Class A Advanced Carolina League. 

Supak's fastball typically sits in the low 90s with late life, at times bumping 95 mph, and there should be more velocity to come as he continues to add strength to his projectable frame. He's learned to throw more downhill since being drafted, giving him the ability to generate more weak contact down in the zone. The Brewers laud his feel for spinning the ball, as he shows present feel for locating a potentially above-average curveball. He also has some aptitude for a fading changeup that he manipulates well to get called strikes and whiffs.

Supak still requires quite a bit of physical projection, but he has the chance to be a durable mid-rotation starter with three Major League average-or-better pitches when all is said and done.


2016

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 55 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

The Pirates went over slot value to land Supak in the supplemental second round in 2014, giving the Texas prep hurler $1 million to forgo his commitment to the University of Houston. But after two seasons in Pittsburgh's system, Supak was traded, along with Keon Broxton, to the Brewers in December. He had a strong showing in the Rookie-level Pioneer League to begin 2016 and then made his full-season debut with Class A Wisconsin in July.

Supak's fastball typically sits in the low 90s with late life, and there should be more velocity to come as he continues to add strength to his 6-foot-5 frame. He's learned to throw more downhill since being drafted, giving him the ability to generate more weak contact down in the zone. He has a feel for spinning the ball, and his curve has shown glimpses of being a solid breaking pitch. He has some aptitude for a changeup, but it's behind the other two. More consistency with his delivery and arm speed will help sell it, though it does have some fade.

It may take some time to wait for Supak to mature physically, but he has the chance to have three Major League average or better pitches when all is said and done. With a father and uncle who both starred in college, he has bloodlines on his side as well.
