The 28-year-old California native has been in the Pirates system since 2017 when the Bucs drafted him out of Dartmouth in the 10th round. Sulser spent five years in the Minor Leagues with the Pirates and accumulated a 4.04 ERA over 329.1 innings pitched.
The Pirates mainly used Sulser as a starter in the Minor Leagues and then transitioned him into the bullpen when he got called up to the Majors on April 24th, using him as a middle reliever.
While he was with the Pirates, big league club, Sulser made four appearances, pitched 9.2 innings, struck out ten, walked six, and had an ERA of 3.72. Sulser wasn’t exactly a world-beater, but he did his job, and he did it adequately.
