Workman, Suter tabbed Relievers of Month
Red Sox right-hander Brandon Workman and Brewers lefty Brent Suter are the final pair of Reliever of the Month winners for the 2019 regular season, MLB announced on Monday.
Workman was named AL Reliever of the Month for September, and Suter is the NL Reliever of the Month for September.
Workman didn't allow an earned run in 12 relief appearances for Boston in the final month. He was 7-for-7 in save opportunities and he struck out 18 batters in his 11 1/3 innings.
Suter, who didn't make his season debut until Sept. 2 as he worked his way back from Tommy John surgery, was brilliant for the Brewers down the stretch as Milwaukee surged into the postseason.
The slow-throwing, fast-working southpaw had a 0.49 ERA in nine relief appearances, and the Brewers went 7-2 in the games he pitched in. Suter picked up four wins in relief and two holds, and he recorded 15 strikeouts in his 18 1/3 innings. Seven of his nine outings went multiple innings.
