Player Outlook
Ranger Suarez remained a perfectly serviceable mid-rotation option for the Phillies last season, though he did see his ERA jump over half a run from 3.65 to 4.18. His ERA estimators generally showed a more modest change, as a jump in strikeout rate from 19.5 percent to 22.0 percent helped offset a drop in groundball rate from 55.4 percent to 48.5 percent. A roughly average number of strikeouts and walks alongside a healthy diet of grounders has been the formula throughout Suarez's career, and there's little reason to doubt that will continue in 2024, health permitting. Elbow issues delayed his 2023 debut until mid-May and limited him to 22 starts, but he remained on the mound the rest of the way outside of a brief bout of hamstring soreness in late August. Suarez capped the year with his second consecutive excellent postseason, producing a 1.93 ERA across four starts. He's now a big-game pitcher and a locked-in starter for a contender, but his fantasy value is held back by the fact that his groundball-heavy profile leads to modest strikeout totals and an elevated WHIP (1.42 last season).

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Goes distance vs. Rockies

    Suarez improved to 3-0 on the season in Tuesday's 5-0 win over Colorado, allowing seven hits and one walk while striking out eight over nine scoreless innings. Suarez was stellar Tuesday, holding the Rockies without an extra-base hit en route to a complete-game shutout, his first since 2021. After taking a no-decision against Atlanta to start the year, Suarez has won his subsequent three starts, and he hasn't allowed a run in consecutive outings while logging 16 strikeouts over 15 innings in that span. Overall, the left-hander sports a 1.73 ERA with a 0.77 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB through 26 innings this season. Suarez will look to keep rolling in his next start, tentatively lined up for early next week in Cincinnati.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Fans eight over six scoreless

    Suarez (2-0) earned the win over Pittsburgh on Thursday, tossing six scoreless innings during which he allowed two hits and two walks while striking out eight batters. Suarez didn't allow any extra-base hits in the dominant outing, and the Pirates didn't get any runners to third base against him. The southpaw racked up a season-high eight punchouts and recorded his second straight quality start. Suarez has been great through three appearances this season, posting a 2.65 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 19 strikeouts over 17 innings. It's a small sample size, but it's promising that he's also cut his walk rate significantly compared to last season, as he's walked just three batters over those 17 frames thus far.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Solid in win

    Suarez (1-0) allowed two runs on two hits over six innings in a win against the Nationals on Saturday, striking out four. Suarez was solid for most of the contest, with the exception of the bottom of the third when he left a sinker over the heart of the plate for Joey Gallo to crush over the wall in right field. The lefty didn't allow another hit from that point on, though he was relieved by Jeff Hoffman in the bottom of the seventh after beaning a hitter to open the frame. Suarez has now gone at least five innings in each of his first two starts to open the season, registering an 11:1 K:BB over that brief stretch.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Tallies seven strikeouts

    Suarez did not factor into the decision Sunday against Atlanta, allowing three runs on three hits and one walk over five innings. He struck out seven. Suarez faced a daunting task in opening his season against an Atlanta lineup that was best in the league last year against left-handed pitching (131 wRC+). He held his own and punched out seven Atlanta batters despite allowing a two-run homer to Ozzie Albies in the first inning. Suarez faces a much more manageable lineup in his next start, scheduled to be against the Nationals on the road.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Settles at $5.05 million

    The Phillies and Suarez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.05 million contract Thursday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Suarez gets a raise in what was his second year of arbitration eligibility. The left-hander posted a 4.18 ERA and 119:48 K:BB across 125 innings covering 22 starts for Philadelphia in 2023. He'll be relied upon heavily by Philly again in 2024

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Tagged for three runs in loss

    Suarez allowed three runs on six hits across 4.2 innings to take the loss in Tuesday's 4-2 defeat to the Diamondbacks in Game 7 of the NLCS. He struck out six. Suarez's luck finally ran out, as he allowed three runs in a postseason outing for the first time in nine career playoff games. The majority of the damage came in the fifth inning, when Corbin Carroll knocked in an RBI single. Jeff Hoffman then replaced Suarez and allowed Carroll to score, which left Suarez with an additional run and stuck him in line for the loss. Suarez's postseason concludes with a sterling 1.93 ERA and 0.80 WHIP with 19 strikeouts across 18.2 innings.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Punches out seven in no-decision

    Suarez did not factor into the decision in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Diamondbacks in Game 3 of the NLCS, allowing three hits and one walk across 5.1 innings. He struck out seven. Suarez reached a career-high strikeouts with his seven punchies as he kept his playoff success rolling Thursday. The southpaw had his command on point, as evidenced by a 39 percent called strikes+whiffs rate across all pitches, markedly higher than his 28.3 percent value he averaged across 125 regular-season innings. Suarez has allowed only one run so far this postseason, where he has pitched to a clean 0.64 ERA and 0.64 WHIP with 13 strikeouts across 14 innings.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Cedes one run in win

    Suarez earned the win in Thursday's 3-1 victory over Atlanta in Game 4 of the NLDS, allowing one run on three hits across five innings. He struck out two. Suarez had a solid start keeping runners off the basepaths, and while he by no means dominated, he kept the Atlanta offense at bay to hand the ball off with a lead. His only blemish came on a changeup that Austin Riley took deep from outside below the zone in the fourth inning. Suarez now has a sterling 1.04 ERA and 0.58 WHIP with six strikeouts across 8.2 innings this postseason. The southpaw will tentatively line up to take the mound again next week against the Diamondbacks in the NLCS.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Starting Game 4

    Suarez will start against Atlanta in Game 4 of the NLDS on Thursday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Suarez had a strong outing during Game 1 of the NLDS, throwing 3.2 scoreless frames while striking out four batters en route to a Philadelphia victory. Atlanta's lineup developed a reputation for crushing left-handed pitchers in the regular season; however, the team has gotten off to a slow start in the postseason, and Suarez could be able to once again capitalize on Atlanta's collective slump.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Penciled in for Game 1

    Manager Rob Thomson said Friday that Suarez will start Game 1 of the Phillies' NLDS matchup against Atlanta on Saturday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Suarez's services weren't needed during the Phillies' two-game sweep over Miami in the NL Wild Card Series, so he'll be making his first appearance of the postseason on plenty of rest. The 28-year-old lefty posted a 4.18 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 22 starts during the regular season, but he surrendered 10 runs over 11.1 frames across his last two outings and will be facing an Atlanta offense that boasts an incredible .845 OPS -- a mark that rise to .870 against southpaws.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Struggles vs. Pirates

    Suarez did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing six runs on nine hits and two walks over 4.2 innings against the Pirates. He struck out four. The Pirates got off to a fast start against Suarez, scoring three runs in the first inning. The left-hander has allowed 10 runs over 11.1 innings in his final two outings, a rough finish to an otherwise solid campaign. Suarez will end the regular season with a 4-6 record, 4.18 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 119 strikeouts across 22 starts (125 innings).

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Logs quality start in victory

    Suarez (3-6) earned the win over St. Louis on Saturday, allowing one run on four hits and four walks while striking out five batters over six innings. Suarez had shaky control in the outing, throwing just 63 of 106 pitches for strikes and tying a season high with four walks. However, he was able to mostly navigate around trouble, leaving the bases loaded in the third inning before retiring 10 of the final 12 batters he faced. This was Suarez's first win in three starts since returning from a hamstring injury Sept. 1, and he's posted a 3.31 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 20:9 K:BB over 16.1 innings during that stretch.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Strikes out 10 in no-decision

    Suarez did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs on two hits and three walks over 6.1 innings against the Marlins. He struck out 10. Suarez was dominant for most of his start Sunday, blanking the Marlins through six innings while racking up a season-high 10 strikeouts. However, the 28-year-old Suarez would be charged with three runs in the seventh, forcing him to settle for a no-decision. The left-hander is still looking for his first win since June 27, though he'd held opponents to two runs or fewer in his prior four outings, working to a 2.82 ERA in that span. Overall, Suarez is 2-6 with a 3.93 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 104:40 K:BB across 19 starts (107.2 innings) this season. He's lined up for a road matchup with the Cardinals in his next outing.

Suarez was held to 75 pitches in his return to the Phillies rotation, allowing two runs on a pair of solo homers across four innings of work. The 28-year-old southpaw had worked to a 2.45 ERA in his previous three starts before going on the IL with a hamstring strain, allowing five runs over 18.1 innings. Overall, Suarez is 2-6 with a 3.91 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 94:37 K:BB across 18 starts (101.1 innings) this season. He'll likely have a longer leash in his next outing, currently scheduled for next weekend against Miami.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Will be activated to start Sunday

    The Phillies will activate Suarez (hamstring) from the 15-day injured list to start Sunday's series finale in Milwaukee, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Barring any unexpected setbacks with his hamstring heading into the weekend, Suarez will return from the IL just a few days past the minimum 15 days. Suarez won't head out on a minor-league rehab start prior to being activated, but he threw live batting practice Monday and should be stretched out enough to handle something close to a typical starter's workload in what will be his first outing with the Phillies since Aug. 13.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: On track for Sunday

    Suarez (hamstring) is on track to return to the Phillies rotation Sunday against the Brewers, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

The 28-year-old left-hander had registered a 3.88 ERA and 89:35 K:BB through 97.1 innings (17 starts) this season for the Phillies prior to landing on the injured list Aug. 19 due to a right hamstring strain.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Will face hitters Monday

    Suarez (hamstring) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Monday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Suarez (2-6) took the loss Sunday, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks over 6.1 innings against the Twins. He struck out eight. Suarez has allowed just five runs over his last three starts (16.1 innings) though he's still yet to earn a win since June 27, as the Phillies offense couldn't provide any run support in a 3-0 loss.

    Suarez did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing a run on 10 hits and two walks over 6.1 innings against Miami. He struck out three.

Suarez is 2-5 this season with a 4.01 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 76:30 K:BB across 15 starts (41.2 innings).
