Suarez (2-0) took the win against Oakland on Sunday, pitching three scoreless and hitless innings. He allowed one walk and struck out four.
Starter Jose Quintana was forced out of the game after three innings due to a shoulder injury, leaving Suarez to protect a 4-2 lead. The southpaw thrived in the opportunity, allowing only one baserunner (on a seventh-inning walk) while striking out four. He has yielded only two earned runs over nine innings on the season.
Suarez was recalled by the Angels on Friday.
Suarez was sent to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, and he made a minor-league start Tuesday. During that outing, he allowed two hits and a walk in two scoreless innings. The southpaw will now return to the major-league bullpen after right-hander Aaron Slegers was sent down in a corresponding move.
Suarez was optioned Saturday to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Suarez returns to the minor leagues after serving as the 27th man for Thursday's doubleheader, when he allowed a home run and struck out three in two innings of work. The lefty does appear to be the top bullpen option available in Triple-A and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him called up again this season.
Suarez was recalled by the Angels to serve as the 27th man in Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins.
Suarez spent just over a week with Triple-A Salt Lake but will now return to the major-league bullpen on a temporary basis. The southpaw allowed a run on five hits and three walks while striking out one in four innings during his lone major-league appearance this season.
Suarez was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.
Suarez allowed just one run on five hits in four innings of relief work Monday against the Astros, picking up the win in his season debut. The Angels need fresh arms in the bullpen, however, so he'll head to the minors with Jaime Barria joining the team in a corresponding move.
Suarez (1-0) was credited with the win in Monday's 5-4 victory over the Astros after allowing one run on five hits and three walks over four-plus innings of relief. He struck out one.
It was far from a dominant outing for the lefty in his season debut, but he gave the Angels a chance to mount a comeback after opener Junior Guerra dug them into an early hole. Suarez tossed 40 of 72 pitches for strikes, so he won't be available to pitch again for a few days, potentially making him a candidate to be optioned back down to Triple-A Salt Lake. If he sticks around, Suarez would need multiple injuries in the Angels' the rotation to have a chance at starting.
Suarez will follow Junior Guerra out of the bullpen Monday against the Astros, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
It's unclear if this is a traditional opener and follower setup, as the Angels haven't specified exactly how many innings Guerra is supposed to pitch. Suarez has made 17 starts and four relief appearances thus far in his big-league career but hasn't had much success, struggling to a 7.99 ERA and 6.95 FIP.
The Angels recalled Suarez from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
According to J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News, Angels manager Joe Maddon said Suarez is "here to help" out of the bullpen in Sunday's series finale, but look for the skipper to stay away from the lefty if starter Jose Quintana isn't chased from the game early. With Alex Cobb (finger) moving to the 10-day injured list Saturday, the Angels will have an opening in the rotation for Monday's game in Houston. Suarez, who had been stretched out for starting duty at Triple-A, would make for a logical choice to get the nod Monday if he isn't needed in relief Sunday.
Suarez was activated from the injured list Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Suarez had been on the injured list at the team's alternate training site for an undisclosed reason. He'll likely stay at the alternate site rather than move to the big-league bullpen, but his re-addition to the roster ensures that he won't be exposed to waivers. Suarez has struggled immensely in his time as a big leaguer, but he was once among the organization's top pitching prospects, so there is still hope that he can turn things around and contribute to the big club at some point.
Suarez was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.
Suarez was being stretched out as a starter this spring while also serving as a bullpen option, but he'll begin the regular season in the minors. The southpaw made three relief appearances during Cactus League play and gave up two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out eight over 4.2 innings. Although Suarez hasn't had much success in the majors early in his career, he could serve as a versatile option for the Angels if the team's pitching staff deals with injuries this season.
Suarez is being stretched out as a starter during spring training and is also being looked at as a bullpen option, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Suarez has struck out seven batters over 3.1 innings thus far in Cactus League play, though he has also allowed five baserunners and two runs. The southpaw is a longshot for a rotation role to open the campaign, so he could start the season in the big-league bullpen or as a starter in the minors. Suarez hasn't had much success as a major-leaguer so far, posting a 7.99 ERA and 1.78 WHIP across 83.1 innings, primarily as a starter.
Suarez was optioned to the Angels' alternate training site Tuesday.
Suarez (0-2) started the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Astros but was charged with the loss as he allowed five runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two over one inning. As a result, he'll attempt to right the ship at alternate camp. Right-hander Luke Bard was recalled in a corresponding move.
Suarez is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Astros, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
Suarez had an inauspicious 2020 debut last Thursday against the Giants, recording only four outs while surrendering five runs on five hits and a walk. Though Julio Teheran was more effective while covering five innings of mop-up duty behind Suarez, Angels manager Joe Maddon with give the 22-year-old lefty at least one more chance to redeem himself. Suarez's poor results last week to go along with the tough road matchup with the Astros probably make it best to avoid him as a streaming option.
Suarez (0-1) was tagged with the loss Thursday against the Giants. He allowed five runs on five hits and one walk across 1.1 innings, and he didn't strike out anyone.
Suarez had a golden opportunity to stake a claim to a rotation spot following Julio Teheran's move to the bullpen, but he wasn't able to take advantage of the chance and only recorded four outs before being lifted. This wasn't how the 22-year-old lefty envisioned his season debut going. Given his struggles, it remains to be seen whether he will get the chance to make another start anytime soon.
Suarez will be added to the team's active roster Thursday to start against the Giants, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Suarez missed all of summer camp for an undisclosed reason, but he has been ramping up at the team's alternate training site and appears ready to join the big club. It is unclear what kind of pitch limit, if any, the southpaw may be on, but he has plenty of experience as a starter. In 19 appearances last season, Suarez made 15 starts and racked up 81 innings, posting a 7.11 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 72:33 K:BB. With Julio Teheran's move to the bullpen, Suarez could be given the opportunity to make multiple starts, though his performance Thursday could be a determining factor.
Suarez (undisclosed) was reinstated from the injured list and optioned to the Angels' alternate training site Monday.
Suarez missed the start of the season for undisclosed reasons. While he's evidently back to full health, the Angels will not be calling on his services at the big-league level just yet. The lefty struggled to the tune of a 7.11 ERA in his 19 appearances (15 starts) with Anaheim last season and is likely best suited for long relief. Jose Rodriguez was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Suarez (undisclosed) is stretched out to 1-to-2 innings at the Angels' alternate training site, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Suarez has been ramping up in Long Beach after dealing with an unspecified issue. The southpaw is believed to be healthy, and pitching coach Mickey Callaway said Saturday that he could be available to make a spot start in the majors if necessary. However, he'll likely need to increase his workload before he's considered for a regular role on the major-league roster.
Angels pitching coach Mickey Callaway said Monday that Suarez (undisclosed) remains limited to playing catch off flat ground at the team's alternate training site in Long Beach, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Suarez reported to Long Beach on Sunday after missing all of summer camp with an unspecified issue. Though Suarez is believed to be healthy now, the Angels will have him proceed cautiously through the ramp-up process. Callaway said Suarez will need time to build up before he's even ready for mound work, so the young lefty is unlikely to warrant serious consideration to return from the injured list until around mid-August.
Suarez (undisclosed) reported to the Angels' alternate training site Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Suarez was sidelined for most of camp and placed on the 10-day injured list for an undisclosed reason, but he reported Sunday and is rehabbing at the team's alternate training site. It's unclear when the left-hander will be ready for game action, but he'll likely come out of the bullpen if he reaches the majors this year.
Suarez (undisclosed) is not part of the Angels' Opening Day roster.
Suarez did not participate in summer camp due to an undisclosed issue, so his absence from the 30-man roster was inevitable. The Angels do not have a pressing need for a starter, so it's likely that Suarez will end up in the bullpen -- or at the team's alternate training site -- when he is ready to return.
