Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday. Suarez will be one of 15 bullpen arms down the stretch for the Phillies, so opportunities will likely be limited. He's allowed 12 runs (eight earned) in nine innings at the big-league level so far this season, though his 2.75 ERA in 21 starts split between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley is cause for some optimism.
Suarez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday. The Phillies brought up a fresh arm in Yacksel Rios to replace Suarez after the club's bullpen was heavily taxed in a 24-4 shellacking in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader. Suarez got the start in that outing and surrendered four earned runs on 11 hits across four innings. He'll return to the Lehigh Valley rotation for the time being.
Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. As expected, Suarez was officially called up in order to start Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets. During his lone appearance with the big-league club this year, Suarez allowed four earned runs on six hits (two home runs) and one walk while striking out three across five innings in Cincinnati on July 26.
Suarez will be recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports. Zach Eflin will get the ball for the other game. Suarez allowed four runs across five innings while striking out three against the Reds in his only MLB appearance earlier in the season. He owns a 3.19 ERA across six starts (31 innings) with the IronPigs, but that comes with an unremarkable 1.45 WHIP and 22:12 K:BB. Suarez will likely head back to the minors following Thursday's spot start, as the Phillies can revert back to a five-man rotation after Thursday's twin bill.
Suarez will be recalled from Triple-A to start one game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports. Zach Eflin, the 26th man for the doubleheader, will start the other game, and it's currently unclear what order they will go in. Suarez got tagged for four earned runs in five innings while striking out three against the Reds in his lone MLB start earlier this season. He has a 3.19 ERA in six starts at Triple-A, but his 1.45 WHIP and 7.5 K-BB percentage at that level are pretty big red flags. The best thing that can be said about his chances is that he is facing the Mets. Suarez is likely only making a spot start, as the Phillies can move back to a five-man rotation after the doubleheader.
