Angels' Wander Suero: Lands with Halos
Suero signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Wednesday.
Suero will join a new organization for the first time in his career after his 12-year run in the Nationals system came to an end in November, when he was non-tendered by Washington. The 30-year-old righty has made 185 relief appearances over parts of four seasons in the majors, but after submitting an ugly 6.33 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 42.2 innings with Washington in 2021, Suero will likely head to Triple-A Salt Lake to open the 2022 campaign....

Wander Suero: Parts ways with Washington
Suero was non-tendered by the Nationals on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Suero entered 2021 as a solid bullpen piece for Washington over the previous three years, but he struggled last season with a 6.33 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 44:15 K:BB over 42.2 innings. He may need to settle for a minor-league deal this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Wander Suero: Shipped to minors
Washington optioned Suero to Triple-A Rochester on Saturday.
Suero forked over his spot in the Washington bullpen to Tanner Rainey, who was called up from Rochester in a corresponding move. Though the 30-year-old right-hander has struggled for much of the 2021 campaign, his demotion still comes as a surprise. Suero had been sharp over his last five appearances, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out eight over 5.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Wander Suero: Recalled from Triple-A
Suero was recalled by the Nationals on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Suero's arrival gives the Nationals an extra bullpen arm with Kyle Finnegan away on paternity leave. Suero owns a 6.29 ERA in 34.1 innings at the MLB level this season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Wander Suero: Optioned to Triple-A
Suero was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
Suero's month of July was disastrous, as the right-hander allowed 11 earned runs on 13 hits across 10.2 innings. Things didn't get better to begin August, with the 29-year-old allowing five earned runs across his first two appearances of the month. Now holding a subpar 6.29 ERA on the campaign, Suero will look to right the ship in Rochester in hopes of returning to the big leagues before too long.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Wander Suero: Wins first game of 2021
Suero (1-2) picked up the win Monday over the Padres after throwing a shutout inning of relief and striking out two batters.
Suero struck out Jake Cronenworth and Wil Myers during a seamless sixth inning. The Nationals took the lead thanks to a homer off the bat of Josh Bell in the top of the seventh and held on for the victory, which left Suero with his first win of the year. The 29-year-old owns a 3.70 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 24:6 K:BB over 24.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Wander Suero: Comes off IL
Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Suero (oblique) would be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's game against the Phillies, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
Suero is ready to make his return from a nearly month-long absence due to a left oblique strain. Though he was tagged for two runs over his lone inning of relief Sunday in a rehab outing with Triple-A Rochester, Suero's oblique apparently checked out fine during the appearance. Prior to landing on the shelf, Suero posted a 1.42 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 6.1 innings out of the Washington bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Wander Suero: Eyeing mid-week return
Suero (oblique) could return Wednesday or Thursday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

Nationals' Wander Suero: Rehab starting Sunday
Suero (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Rochester, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Suero has been out with a strained oblique since mid-April. He threw 22 pitches in a simulated game Thursday, so he shouldn't be too far from returning to the active roster if he gets through a rehab appearance without issues.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Wander Suero: Rehab assignment on tap
Suero (oblique) threw 22 pitches in a simulated game Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Following his successful throwing session Thursday, Suero will now report to Triple-A Rochester for a rehab assignment Friday or Saturday. Manager Dave Martinez wouldn't commit to Suero returning to the majors in time for the Nationals' weekend series against the Yankees, but the right-hander appears to be nearing his return....

Nationals' Wander Suero: Ready for sim game
Suero (oblique) is scheduled to face four hitters and throw around 20-to-25 pitches in a simulated game Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
He'll be entering the simulated game after fellow rehabbing pitcher Stephen Strasburg (shoulder), who is expected to toss 35-to-40 pitches. If Suero's oblique responds well to the outing, he could be sent to Triple-A Rochester for what would likely be a brief rehab assignment before he returns from the 10-day injured list....

Suero (oblique) began a throwing program Monday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Nationals' Wander Suero: Progressing in recovery
Manager Davey Martinez said Suero (oblique) is "doing great" and is simulating throws, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
Suero was placed on the injured list April 18 and is eligible to return May 1. Given that he has yet to actually throw to this point, that may not be realistic. However, it appears that the team is optimistic about the way his recovery is going.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Wander Suero: Sidelined with oblique injury
Suero was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to a left oblique strain, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
Suero was removed from Saturday's win over Arizona with what was initially labeled as a left side injury, but follow-up tests revealed that he was dealing with a more serious oblique strain. Given the volatile recovery timelines associated with oblique injuries, Suero could be sidelined longer than the minimum 10 days. Washington recalled right-hander Ryne Harper from its alternate site to fill Suero's spot in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Wander Suero: Dealing with side injury
Suero is undergoing an MRI on his left side after exiting Saturday's game against Arizona, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

Nationals' Wander Suero: Having dominant spring
Suero has yet to give up a run over five Grapefruit League appearances (five innings) while posting a 9:1 K:BB.
The 29-year-old right-hander has been well ahead of the batters he's faced so far. Suero isn't expected to factor into the saves mix for the Nats this season, but after finishing second on the team in holds in 2020 while posting a strikeout rate north of 27 percent, he should be an important bridge to setup men Will Harris and Daniel Hudson....

Nationals' Wander Suero: Collects second win
Suero (2-0) picked up the win in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against Atlanta, striking out two in a perfect inning of relief.
He was the fourth Nats pitcher to enter the game but the first to keep the opposition off the scoreboard, leading to the win in an eventual 10-9 victory. Suero remains in a fairly low-leverage role, and while his 17:4 K:BB through 15.2 innings is strong, he has a mediocre 4.60 ERA and 1.28 WHIP plus zero saves or holds in 13 appearances....

Nationals' Wander Suero: Nabs win in relief
Suero (1-0) picked up the win in Tuesday's 8-5 victory over Atlanta, giving up one hit and striking out two in a scoreless fifth inning.
Austin Voth didn't last long enough to qualify for the win even though the Nats took the lead for good in the top of the fifth, making Suero the pitcher of record after he and six other relievers combined to silence Atlanta's bats. The right-hander has been tagged for runs in half of his six appearances this season, leading to a 6.14 ERA and 1.77 WHIP, but his 7:1 K:BB and zero homers allowed through 7.1 innings suggests better days should be ahead....

Nationals' Wander Suero: Activated from injured list
Suero (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list Tuesday, Byron Kerr of MASNSports.com reports.
Suero missed much of camp for undisclosed reasons but has been able to throw for the past two weeks and is now ready for game action. With a fine-but-forgettable 4.16 ERA in 119 major-league innings so far in his career, the righty probably isn't ticketed for high-leverage innings any time soon.... See More ... See Less
