Suarez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Suarez made just one appearance during his most recent stint in the majors, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two across 1.2 innings of relief. In a corresponding roster move, Williams Jerez was summoned from the minors.
Suarez will pitch out of the bullpen as a long reliever for the Giants, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Suarez made two starts in the majors earlier this season, but he'll work out of the bullpen this time around after being called up Tuesday. The 26-year-old has been unable to maintain a place on the major-league roster this season after posting a 4.49 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 130:45 K:BB in 29 starts for the Giants in 2018.
Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Suarez has started two games this season for the Giants, though he's been rocked for 10 runs while striking out seven over that stretch. Dereck Rodriguez was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Suarez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Suarez had an ugly start Saturday in which he allowed nine runs (seven earned) over four innings, and now makes his way back to the minors. The Giants will look elsewhere for their fifth starter next weekend against the Orioles. The 26-year-old returns to Sacramento, where he has a 6.33 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 21:10 K:BB through six starts this season.
Suarez (0-2) took the loss Saturday, coughing up nine runs (seven earned) on nine hits and three walks over four innings. He struck out two as the Giants fell 10-4 to the Diamondbacks.
The southpaw was in trouble from the jump, serving up a triple to Ketel Marte on the second pitch of the game, and things didn't get any better from there. Suarez gave the Giants a quality start his first time out this season, but this outing might cause the club to rethink whether he should remain in the rotation. If he does stick around, he'll next take the mound Friday in Baltimore.
Suarez will remain in San Francisco's starting rotation moving forward, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Suarez gave up three runs over six frames in his 2019 debut, and he evidently convinced his skipper to keep him in the rotation for the foreseeable future. The Giants currently have 14 pitchers on their 25-man roster, so with Suarez remaining in the rotation, a move is expected to be made Tuesday to add an infielder.
Suarez (0-1) allowed three runs on four hits and four walks Monday, taking the loss against the Braves. He struck out five and yielded two homers.
It was Suarez's 2019 debut after registering a 4.49 ERA in over 160 innings at the MLB level last season. Things got rocky early as he served up a leadoff blast to Ronald Acuna and later was taken deep by Austin Riley. Assuming he sticks around in the rotation, the 26-year-old will make another home start Saturday against Arizona.
Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
As expected, Suarez was promoted prior to Monday's game, and he'll make his season debut in San Francisco's series opener against the Braves. He's accrued a 6.33 ERA and 1.70 WHIP with a 21:10 K:BB across 27 innings at Triple-A this season.
Suarez will be recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to start Monday's game against the Braves, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Suarez was unable to secure a spot in the starting rotation in spring training but will now get his chance despite posting a 6.33 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 21:10 K:BB through six starts with the River Cats. The 26-year-old made 29 starts for the Giants in 2018 with a 4.49 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across 160.1 innings.
Suarez allowed five runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out six over 5.1 innings in Triple-A Sacramento's loss to El Paso on Monday.
The lefty went down with a hamstring strain April 20, but it was diagnosed as a Grade 1 pull and Suarez was able to return in a little under three weeks. After losing out on a big-league rotation spot in spring training, Suarez has gone on to post a 6.33 ERA and 1.70 WHIP through six starts for Sacramento. He's not exactly making a strong case to return to the majors, but chances are, the Giants will need him to chew up innings later in the year after they sell off some of their top assets.
Suarez suffered a Grade 1 left hamstring strain in his most recent start Saturday for Triple-A Sacramento, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
The lefty has been placed on the minor-league injured list and is expected to miss two weeks. He has a 5.89 ERA in four starts for Sacramento this season.
The Giants optioned Suarez to the minors Tuesday.
The Giants whittled down their rotation to five after Monday's exhibition game against the Athletics, sending down Suarez and shipping Chris Stratton to the Angels. The decision to move Stratton to another organization at least theoretically leaves Suarez as the next man up to join the rotation should an injury arise. The 26-year-old lefty was a capable starter for San Francisco during his rookie campaign, delivering a 4.49 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 160.1 innings while generating groundballs at a healthy 51.3 percent clip. He'll likely head to Triple-A Sacramento to begin 2019.
Suarez is a strong candidate to begin the year in the minors, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Suarez is competing for a back-end rotation spot, but it sounds like veteran southpaws Drew Pomeranz and Derek Holland remain ahead of the youngster. The combination of remaining minor-league options and marginal results this spring (5.11 ERA over 12.1 innings) support Pavlovic's expectation for the sophomore beginning the year with Triple-A Sacramento. The 25-year-old hasn't been sent down yet, but fantasy owners shouldn't count on getting any starts out of the lefty early in the season.
Suarez completed four innings Sunday, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two in a spring loss to the Athletics.
Suarez has gotten off to a bumpy start this spring, giving up six runs (one home run) on 11 hits over nine innings. The 26-year-old does have eight strikeouts over that span, so his ability to punch out batters seems to have carried over from his rookie year (7.3 K/9). Despite his up-and-down results in 2018, Suarez is one of several options being considered for the Giants' final rotation spot.
Suarez (7-13) took the loss against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing six earned runs on six hits and two walks over 2.1 innings.
This marked Suarez's worst outing since allowing seven runs in Cincinnati on Aug. 19, as he wasn't able to settle down and overcome the Los Angeles lineup. The southpaw wound up making 29 starts for the Giants this season, finishing with a 4.49 ERA and 130 strikeouts across 160.1 innings.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy indicated after Sunday's 9-2 loss to the Cardinals that Suarez would receive one more start during the final week of the season, Sean Collins of MLB.com reports.
Suarez took his 12th loss Sunday despite limiting the Cardinals to two runs over five frames, raising his innings count to 181.1 across three stops on the season. Given that Suarez just turned 26 years old and had covered only 155.2 innings in the minors the previous season, there was some thought that the Giants might shut him down to preserve his arm. It appears Suarez's showing was solid enough to earn him one final start, but don't expect him to work deep into the outing, which will likely fall Saturday against the Dodgers. Though he endured only minimal turbulence in the series finale with St. Louis, Suarez was lifted after just 77 pitches, presumably with workload concerns in mind.
Suarez (7-12) pitched five innings and took the loss Sunday, yielding two runs on a walk and six hits while striking out five in the loss to the Cardinals.
Overall it was a solid outing for Suarez, but the Giants bullpen was torched immediately after his exit, giving up five runs in the sixth inning. The rookie left-hander now owns a 4.22 ERA in 158 innings on the year. He'll take on the Dodgers at home on Saturday.
Suarez (7-11) fired 7.2 innings of two-run ball Monday, giving up four hits and three walks while striking out four and picking up the victory over the Padres.
Suarez needed just 87 pitches (58 strikes) to complete 7.2 frames -- his longest outing of the season. The 25-year-old did surrender another home run, which has been the primary blemish (1.4 HR/9) on an otherwise solid rookie campaign (4.24 ERA and 7.4 K/9). Suarez will face stiffer competition in his next start on the road against the Cardinals on Sunday.
Suarez (6-11) took the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three over six innings against the Braves.
Suarez allowed a run in the fourth before allowing two more to come around in the fifth inning on a two-run homer -- the fourth long ball he's allowed in 12 innings over his last two starts. Despite the loss the southpaw technically worked a quality start, doing so for the third time in four outings. He'll take a 4.33 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into Monday's start in San Diego.
Suarez (6-10) took the loss Wednesday, allowing five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings against the Rockies.
Suarez was beaten by Trevor Story for three solo homers, and the trio of homers accounted for the bulk of the damage on Suarez's ledger. The lefty has been boom-or-bust of late, allowing zero runs in three of his last five outings and five earned in each of the other two. He'll take a 4.33 ERA into Tuesday's matchup versus the Braves.
