He was drafted in the 31st round by the Milwaukee Brewers out of Harvard University after graduating with a degree in Environmental Science and Public Policy. He made his Major League debut in 2016 with the Brewers, with whom he remains as a pitcher.
Suter first found his environmental passion during his freshman hear of high school after viewing An Inconvenient Truth.
