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.
Suero (oblique) could return Wednesday or Thursday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
The Nationals medical staff will evaluate the right-hander Tuesday after he pitched a Triple-A rehab game Sunday. Suero posted a 1.42 ERA in eight relief appearances before suffering the oblique injury April 17.
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.
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.
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.
Suero has already spent the required 10 days on the injured list with his oblique strain, but he'll need more time since he's only just resumed throwing. He's hoping to throw a bullpen session by the end of the week.
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.
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.
Suero is undergoing an MRI on his left side after exiting Saturday's game against Arizona, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
The 29-year-old issued a walk and delivered two pitches to another batter before being removed from Saturday's contest with the injury. Suero should be considered day-to-day until the team announces the results of the MRI.
Suero left Saturday's game against Arizona with an apparent injury, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
Suero faced just a single batter before exiting the game. The nature and severity of his injury are not yet clear.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Suero (undisclosed) completed a simulated game Wednesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Even though Suero remains on the 10-day injured list, his presence at summer camp and ability to face hitters suggests he's reasonably healthy and won't miss much time beyond Opening Day. The right-hander reliever made 78 appearances for Washington in 2019, posting a 4.54 ERA, 81:26 K:BB and 19 holds over 71.1 innings.
Suero (undisclosed) reported to summer training Sunday and threw a light side session, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The 28-year-old is on the injured list and has been absent from camp for unspecified reasons, but he was able to join the team this weekend. Suero may not be available for Opening Day with only a few days to build up for Thursday's matchup with the Yankees.
Suero was placed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.
If Suero's absence is related to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Nationals wouldn't legally be able to confirm. The righty has yet to appear in camp, and it's not yet clear when he's expected to arrive.
Suero posted a 0.00 ERA but shaky 4:4 K:BB through six spring innings.
On the bright side, the right-hander allowed only one hit in Grapefruit League action before MLB was put on pause. Suero was expected to fill a middle-relief role to begin the season following the acquisition of Will Harris, but his improving K-rate and 3.06 FIP in 2019 suggest he could handle high-leverage work if called upon.
Suero was added to the Nationals' World Series roster.
Suero made the team's NLDS roster and was on the NLCS roster for a day before being dropped for Daniel Hudson's return from paternity leave. He's made just a single appearance this postseason, getting one out and allowing one run.
Suero was removed from the Nationals' NLCS roster Saturday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The move was expected, as Suero was designated to be removed from the roster once Daniel Hudson was reinstated from the paternity list, which occurred Saturday. The right-hander was not used during Game 1 of the NLCS after Anibal Sanchez pitched 7.2 innings in his start.
