Bats: Right / Throws: Right

40-man roster: No

How acquired: Trade with Pirates (December 17, 2015)

Profile: Acquired from Pittsburgh along with outfielder Keon Broxton in a 2015 trade that sent first baseman Jason Rogers to the Pirates, Supak was originally selected by the Pirates with their competitive balance pick at the end of the second round in 2014. He pitched for the Pirates affiliate in the Gulf Coast League after signing, then spent 2015 with Bristol in the Appalachian League before being dealt to Milwaukee that December. Supak opened 2016 in extended spring training, then joined Helena when their season began in June, before being promoted to Class-A Wisconsin where he finished out the season. He opened 2017 back at Wisconsin, then received a bump to High-A Carolina where he finished out the year.  The big Texan has a good mound presence and is a quick worker who attacks hitters with a fastball that sits in the low 90’s, and decent feel for a curveball while also mixing in a changeup from time-to-time. His fastball tends to stay fairly straight, making it more critical for him to develop his other offerings in order to have success against tougher competition. He has the physical build to be an innings eater and could develop into a nice back of the rotation piece down the road.

2014: After getting a million dollar bonus to sign with the Pirates, Supak began his career in the rookie Gulf Coast League in 2014. He pitched in eight games, starting six and went 1-3 with a 4.88 earned run average

2015: Supak opened up the 2015 season in extended spring training then joined rookie level Bristol in the Appalachian League when their season opened up in June. He made eight starts with Bristol, going 1-2 with a .667 ERA, then was traded to Milwaukee in the offseason.

2016: After joining the Brewers organization, Supak again opened up the year in extended spring training, then was sent to Helena when their season began. He made four appearances there, starting two games, and went 1-1 with a 1.29 ERA, earning a bump to Single-A Wisconsin. Supak appeared in 11 games with the Timber Rattlers, making six starts, and wound up going 2-3 with a 3.86 ERA.

2017: The Brewers had Supak return to Wisconsin to start the 2017 season but quickly earned a promotion after posting a 1.76 ERA in eight games with the Timber Rattlers.  He joined High-A Carolina near the end of May, then made 15 more appearances with the Mudcats, going 3-4 with a 4.60 ERA.
