Suarez allowed six runs on seven hits with two walks and three strikeouts across 2.2 innings during a no-decision in relief against the Yankees on Tuesday. The left-hander certainly earned the loss, but the Angels already faced a deficit when he entered. That doesn't help his ERA, though, which has taken a beaten lately, as he's allowed 12 runs in his last 5.2 innings. Suarez is 2-6 with a 7.42 ERA, 1.70 WHIP, .314 batting average against and 64 strikeouts in 74 innings this season. He is scheduled to be back on the mound Sunday at the Astros.
Suarez will follow opener Noe Ramirez against the Yankees on Tuesday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. Following an opener means Suarez will avoid the toughest part of the lineup the first time through. He also won't have to record five innings to be eligible for a win. However, that isn't enough to give him appeal as a streamer against this lineup; Suarez has an ugly 6.94 ERA for the season.
Suarez (2-6) took the loss against the Indians on Tuesday, giving up six earned runs on four hits over three innings, striking out one and walking two as the Angels fell 8-0. The left-hander made it out of the first inning unscathed but yielded all six of his runs over the next two frames before getting chased from the contest after three innings and 60 pitches. It was a continuation of the struggles Suarez has endured throughout his rookie campaign, with this outing giving him a 6.94 ERA and 1.64 WHIP across 71.1 innings on the season.
Suarez allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two across 5.1 innings Thursday against the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision. Suarez followed Luke Bard into the game, beginning his outing in the second inning. The major blow against him came in his final frame when he surrendered a two-run homer to Josh Phegley. It was one the few positive outings Suarez has had in his rookie campaign, as he currently owns a 6.45 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 68.1 innings. He'll look to build on this performance in his next outing, currently scheduled for Tuesday against Cleveland.
Suarez will work behind an opener Thursday against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Suarez worked as a traditional starter in each of his last two outings, but he gave up seven runs on 11 hits over 9.2 innings. Luke Bard will cover the first inning or two before turning things over to the young left-hander Thursday. Suarez has mostly struggled during his rookie season with a 6.71 ERA and 1.65 WHIP through 63 frames.
