  • Padres' Robert Suarez: Undergoes knee surgery

    Suarez recently underwent knee surgery to clean up "some loose impediments" and will be shut down for a few weeks, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    While it's discouraging that Suarez required a procedure to address his knee injury, it seems unlikely that he'll require a significant absence. The right-hander will spend more than the minimum of 15 days on the injured list, and a better timetable for his return should come into focus once he ultimately resumes throwing.

  • Padres' Robert Suarez: Placed on 15-day injured list

    Suarez was placed on the 15-day injured list with right knee inflammation Tuesday.

    Suarez struck out nine in six scoreless innings over his last six relief appearances, but he's apparently dealing with a knee injury that will force him to miss at least two weeks. A timetable for his return hasn't yet been revealed, but left-hander Adrian Morejon was recalled from Triple-A El Paso to take his place in the bullpen.

  • Padres' Robert Suarez: Notches first career save

    Suarez earned a save against the Giants on Friday, allowing an unearned run on one hit while striking out one over one inning.

    With closer Taylor Rogers unavailable for San Diego, the team turned to Luis Garcia to hold a two-run, ninth-inning lead. He was unable to do so, but the Padres put up a pair of runs in the top of the 10th and handed the ball to Suarez in the bottom of the frame. The right-hander came through with his first career save despite allowing the inherited runner to score on a one-out single. Since being knocked around for three runs in his season debut, Suarez has posted a 2.20 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 19:6 K:BB across 16.1 innings.

  • Padres' Robert Suarez: Picks up third hold Tuesday

    Suarez earned a hold Tuesday against the Cubs, allowing one hit and striking out two in one scoreless inning.

    Suarez came on in the seventh inning with the Padres up by two runs. He gave up a two-out single but otherwise had no problem getting through the frame. The right-hander entered the season as the Padres' projected closer before the team traded for Taylor Rogers. Suarez had a rough first outing, giving up three earned runs without notching an out, but since then he has posted a 1.80 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 17:4 K:BB across 15 innings.

  • Padres' Robert Suarez: Tagged with relief loss

    Suarez (0-1) was tagged with the loss in relief Thursday against Arizona after allowing three runs on zero hits, two walks and a hit-by-pitch without recording an out.

    Suarez's command was all over the place, as he tossed just four of his 15 pitches for strikes. The 31-year-old right-hander was making his MLB debut after emerging as a closer in Japan the last two years, but the Padres' addition of Taylor Rogers likely relegates Suarez to a setup or middle-relief role to begin the season.

  • Padres' Robert Suarez: Likely favorite for closer role

    Suarez appears to be the favorite to close games for the Padres this season, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Suarez signed with the Padres in November following a five-season stint in Japan, and he has been excellent in Cactus League play, allowing only one run while posting a 7:0 K:BB across four innings. The 31-year-old hasn't yet logged a save this spring but racked up 67 saves during his final two campaigns in Japan. Emilio Pagan could still be in the running for San Diego's closer job as well, but he hasn't been as sharp in Cactus League action, allowing five runs in 4.1 frames.

  • Padres' Robert Suarez: One of top closing candidates

    Suarez and Emilio Pagan look like the readiest options at closer for the Padres, speculates Dennis Lin of The Athletic.

    This doesn't seem to be tied to any firm reporting, just Lin's expertise from being around the team this spring. Suarez, 31, emerged as one of the top closers in Japan over the last two years and got a $5 million deal with the Padres this winter.
