January 31, 2020 — Sutt has been sidelined with an injury to his throwing arm, and will likely redshirt this spring for Long Beach City; he’ll go into Long Beach State then with three years of eligibility.
November 22, 2019 — Fastball 83-86 (88); Changeup 77-79; Slider 74-77. Sutt is the best-kept secret in SoCal JuCo ball, and may be the most advanced, polished pitcher in the state alongside El Camino ace Jimmy Galicia. Sutt clearly lacks the ideal body type for high-leverage D1 work, but even while being undersized he’s a good athlete who repeats his delivery extremely well and throws three pitches for strikes with a remarkable backbone to challenge any hitter in any count. His velo doesn’t stand out, but his fastball-slider combo is top-notch and his command profile is professional-quality, with remarkable touch for both sides of the plate with his full repertoire. His fastball shows good arm-side life with crisp tail, and his slider is exceptional, with late break, sharp life, and great tilt that’ll get off bats and allow him another dimension and look he can use to pitch backwards and mix up his sequencing. A strong spring 2020 at LBCC will improve his recruiting profile, but make no mistake: Sutt already has pitchability through the roof, and D1 programs seeking high-leverage relief help would be wise to come through. He’s likely going to fall through the cracks and away from programs scared off by his mid-80s velocity and the fact he doesn’t showcase well, but I’d put his pitchability and competitiveness up against any junior college kid in the country, and the crisp life and feel on his stuff has advanced to the point where he’s got a real shot to be a viable bullpen weapon for a decent-size four-year program. At the very least, he’ll be a productive middle reliever who can eat innings at get efficient outs; in a best-case scenario, he’ll come out of the bullpen for high-leverage innings and really sneak up on people.
