Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Joins big-league squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was recalled by the Phillies on Friday.

Suarez joined the team for Tuesday's doubleheader but didn't make an appearance and was optioned the next day. He's made just three appearances for the Phillies this season, allowing nine runs in four innings while striking out one and walking four.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Back at alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies optioned Suarez to their alternate training site Wednesday.

Despite being designated as the 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader with the Nationals, Suarez went unused in both contests. With no more twin bills on the Phillies' schedule the rest of the regular season, Suarez won't be eligible to rejoin the big club unless another player is placed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Added as extra man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez will be the 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Phillies have yet to announce their starter for the nightcap, so the opportunity could well go to Suarez if he isn't needed in relief in the afternoon game. He hasn't thrown more than two innings in any of his appearances thus far this season, however, so if he does pitch first in the evening game, he'll likely be more of an opener than a true starter. He's allowed nine runs on 10 hits in four innings of relief this season, striking out one while walking four.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was optioned to the Phillies' alternate training site Monday.

Suarez struggled mightily in three outings since returning from the COVID-19 injured list, allowing nine runs on 10 hits and four walks while striking out one over four innings. The southpaw will attempt to improve at alternate camp, and it's unclear whether he'll return to the major-league bullpen with just two weeks remaining in the regular season.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday.

He has yet to pitch in the majors this season due to the virus. Suarez logged a 3.14 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in 48.2 innings in the majors last season. He should provide length out of the bullpen going forward.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Heading to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez (illness) will throw in Philadelphia within the next few days before heading to the team's alternate training site to continue building up, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Suarez had at least an outside shot at winning the Phillies' fifth starter job this season, but he never got the chance to compete for one this summer, as he spent the entirety of camp on the COVID-19 injured list. He's unlikely to be used as a starter once he's ready to go given that the team's top pitching prospect, Spencer Howard, has since made his big-league debut.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: On COVID-19 injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Phillies didn't initially specify why Suarez and three of his teammates were placed on the injured list, but it's since been revealed that all four are on the COVID-19 injured list rather than the normal 10-day injured list. That doesn't necessarily mean that any of them actually have the virus, as players can land on that list simply due to having had contact with someone who tested positive. It's not clear when Suarez is expected to return to the field, but even a minor delay may take him out of the running for an Opening Day rotation spot, something which seemed like a long shot to begin with.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Opening summer camp on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies placed Suarez on the 10-day injured list Wednesday due to an unspecified issue, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Suarez was one of four Phillies placed on the IL on Wednesday, with no explanation provided behind any of the transactions. More clarity on Suarez's situation could come the next time manager Joe Girardi meets with the media, but for now, the 31-year-old's status for Opening Day in late July is muddled. Before MLB's shutdown in spring training, Suarez had been competing for a starting job with the big club, but he probably still finds himself on the outside looking in for a rotation spot even if Girardi opts for a six-man setup during the shortened season. The fact that Suarez is beginning summer camp on the IL will only further hurt his chances of handling a meaningful role with the Phillies when the season begins.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: New competition for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez's chances of winning the Phillies' fifth starter job could take a hit if a shortened schedule leads to the team promoting Spencer Howard for the start of the campaign, Scott Lauber of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Suarez pitched well in eight Grapefruit League innings, posting an 8:0 K:BB while allowing just two earned runs. That gave him a legitimate shot to edge out Vince Velasquez and Nick Pivetta for the job, but a promotion for Howard could render the entire battle irrelevant.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Spending spring as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez is building up as a starter this spring, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Like many pitchers, Suarez was a starter in the minors but switched to relief after reaching the big leagues. In 37 relief appearances last season, he recorded a 3.14 ERA, though his 20.5 percent strikeout rate wasn't particularly impressive. It doesn't appear likely that he'll move ahead of both Vince Velasquez and Nick Pivetta for the team's No. 5 starter role, meaning the Phillies may have to send him to the minors to open the season if they want him to stay stretched out.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Sticks with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Suarez was sent back to Lehigh Valley after serving as the 26th man for Wednesday's doubleheader, but he'll rejoin the big club Thursday to replace the injured Pat Neshek (hamstring), who was placed on the injured list. In his lone appearance for the Phillies this season, Suarez allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out six across four innings.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Joins club for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies recalled Suarez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Nationals, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Suarez will serve as the 26th man for the twin bill and should offer a long arm out of the bullpen if needed for either contest. He'll likely head back to Triple-A at the conclusion of the doubleheader.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Suarez joined the Phillies on June 7 and allowed four runs over four innings during his lone appearance. The 23-year-old will return to Lehigh Valley, where he has a 5.68 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 32:10 K:BB across 38 innings this season.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Receives major-league callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suared was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Suarez was unable to secure a spot on the Opening Day roster in spring training and has been working as a starter with the IronPigs. The 23-year-old received his first taste of the majors in 2018 and had a 5.40 ERA and 1.80 WHIP over 15 innings.

March 11, 2019 05:16 PM
Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Suarez allowed 14 runs (nine earned) in 15 innings in his first taste of the big leagues last season. He'll wait at the Triple-A level for an injury to open up another opportunity.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Throws three solid innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez allowed one run on one hit and two walks over three innings during Sunday's 3-1 win over the Braves. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

Suarez likely would have been afforded a longer lease at a different point in the season, but he likely had a limited pitch count since he hadn't been used as a starter since joining the Phillies at the start of September. The 23-year-old had two unimpressive starts earlier in the season, but allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits across his two September appearances (six innings).

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Set for spot start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez will start Sunday against the Braves, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Suarez will get the ball for the Phillies' final game of the season as manager Gabe Kapler looks to rest his regular starters with the team out of the playoff picture. The young lefty has made two starts for the big club this season, posting an 8.00 ERA, 2.22 WHIP and 5:3 K:BB across nine innings in those appearances.

Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Called up as bullpen depth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

Suarez will be one of 15 bullpen arms down the stretch for the Phillies, so opportunities will likely be limited. He's allowed 12 runs (eight earned) in nine innings at the big-league level so far this season, though his 2.75 ERA in 21 starts split between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley is cause for some optimism.

August 18, 2018 12:21 AM
Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

The Phillies brought up a fresh arm in Yacksel Rios to replace Suarez after the club's bullpen was heavily taxed in a 24-4 shellacking in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader. Suarez got the start in that outing and surrendered four earned runs on 11 hits across four innings. He'll return to the Lehigh Valley rotation for the time being.

August 16, 2018 12:48 PM
Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Called up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

As expected, Suarez was officially called up in order to start Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets. During his lone appearance with the big-league club this year, Suarez allowed four earned runs on six hits (two home runs) and one walk while striking out three across five innings in Cincinnati on July 26.
