Suarez (7-8) took the loss in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Athletics, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 5.2 innings.
Suarez settled down after surrendering three runs in the first inning on three hits and a walk, but Los Angeles was never able to recover from the early hole. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for the 23-year-old, who has gone at least 5.2 innings in each of his last three starts. Suarez is set to take the hill against the Astros on Thursday.
Suarez (7-7) picked up the victory Saturday against Houston, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He also had seven strikeouts.
That's back-to-back stellar outings for the 23-year-old, who limited the high-powered Astros to a Yuli Gurriel RBI groundout in the fourth inning. Suarez boasts a 3.59 ERA in his 20 appearances (11 starts) this season, logging a 76:31 K:BB in 82.2 innings. He's tentatively scheduled to face Oakland at home in his next start.
Suarez (6-7) got the win in Saturday's 4-1 victory over the Rangers, allowing one run on five hits with eight strikeouts in a complete game.
Suarez showed the promise Los Angeles desperately needed Saturday, retiring the first nine Rangers he faced and never facing any real threats. He took a shutout into the ninth but permitted Texas' lone run with one out and was still able to slam the door on the resounding victory. The outing was only Suarez's second without surrendering any free passes and the eight strikeouts are his most in any start of his major-league career. He currently lines up to face Houston next weekend.
Suarez started Saturday's 10-2 victory over San Diego, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks with two strikeouts in 3.2 innings. He didn't factor into the decision.
Suarez didn't pitch well -- throwing 73 pitches in less than four innings -- but Los Angeles jumped out to an early lead that it was able to extend handily. The lefty has now gone less than five innings in each of his last two starts and lines up to face Texas next weekend.
Suarez (5-7) took the loss in Sunday's 3-0 shutout against Cleveland, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts in four innings.
Suarez didn't have his best stuff Sunday as he permitted a season-high nine baserunners and had traffic on the bases during all four innings. Given his age (23), Los Angeles' struggling rotation and its waning playoff hopes, Suarez should have a spot in the rotation for the rest of the season, barring injury.
Suarez (5-6) allowed two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six in five innings to take the loss against the Yankees on Monday.
Suarez hadn't allowed fewer than three earned runs in any of his first four starts after the All-Star break, but he fared slightly better in Monday's outing. However, the southpaw was tagged with his sixth loss of the season in the low-scoring contest. Across his last five starts, Suarez has recorded a 6.12 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 25 innings. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Cleveland on Sunday.
Suarez (5-5) was tagged with the loss in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays after allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk across 5.1 innings. He struck out two.
Suarez got off to a rough start and gave up two runs in the first inning, and while he settled down afterwards, he lacked the run support to instigate a potential turnaround. The left-hander departed the game in the top of the sixth after allowing back-to-back singles to Bo Bichette and Teoscar Hernandez, and both would later score on a two-run single by Lourdes Gurriel. The 23-year-old southpaw has given up at least three runs in each of his last four appearances and owns a 5.79 ERA across 28 innings since the beginning of July (six starts).
Suarez (5-4) allowed three earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six across 5.2 innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Rangers.
Suarez was given significant run support by the Angels' offense, allowing him to cruise to his fifth win of the season. Though he wasn't dominant, the majority of the damage against him came on a two-run home run by Andy Ibanez in Suarez's final inning of work. Entering the game, Suarez had issued nine walks while striking out 15 across his last 17 frames -- a span of four starts -- so his 6:1 K:BB in this outing is noteworthy. For the season, Suarez has a 3.60 ERA across 50 innings.
Suarez is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Rangers in Arlington.
Suarez initially appeared on track to start Monday's series opener, but the Angels instead elected to push him back a day in the pitching schedule to open up a spot in the rotation for Chris Rodriguez. The change will likely result in Suarez missing out on a two-start week, though he at least draws a favorable matchup Tuesday versus a Rangers offense that has produced an MLB-worst 52 wRC+ since the All-Star break.
Suarez (4-4) took the loss against Colorado on Tuesday, pitching 3.1 innings and allowing eight runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out four.
The left-hander's outing got off a to a poor start when a pair of Angels errors in the first inning led to two Rockies runs. He gave up a solo homer in the third frame before another error catalyzed two more Colorado scores. Suarez couldn't blame his defense in the fourth inning, when he allowed three of the four batters he faced to reach base, and all three came around to score. Suarez has now surrendered four earned runs in consecutive contests, somewhat souring a three-game stretch from June 28 to July 11 during which he yielded four total runs over 13.1 innings. He's tentatively lined up to start next Monday's game at Texas.
Suarez (4-3) was charged with the loss against the A's on Tuesday after allowing four runs on three hits and a walk while striking out four across 5.2 innings.
Suarez held the A's to a single run across the first five frames, which came on a solo homer by Matt Olson. The southpaw eventually unraveled in the sixth, allowing three more runs, including a two-run double by Ramon Laureano. The 23-year-old didn't quite stretch out as far as the season-high 88 pitches from his last outing; he tossed 73 (with 49 strikes) this time around. Suarez will take a 2.85 ERA and 1.12 WHIP into his next projected start Monday against Colorado.
Suarez (4-2) allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over five innings as he picked up a win over the Mariners on Sunday.
The only run Suarez allowed came on a sacrifice fly from Ty France after the left-hander allowed back-to-back singles to open up the bottom half of the first. He settled in nicely afterward, not allowing another baserunner to reach second over the next four innings. Suarez threw a season-high 88 pitches after throwing 75 pitches his last time out as he continues to build up his arm strength and stamina. He now owns a 2.04 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 33:15 K:BB over 35.1 innings and should be on fantasy managers' radars.
Suarez (3-2) allowed two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three over three innings as he took the loss against the Red Sox on Monday.
Suarez had some trouble locating the strike zone, throwing just 45 of his 75 pitches for strikes while walking a season-high four batters. It was quite a disappointing outing for the 23-year-old after he threw 5.1 strong innings of relief last Monday. He now owns a 2.37 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 29:13 K:BB over 30.1 innings and lines up to start in Seattle over the weekend.
Suarez will pitch out of the rotation going forward, starting Monday against Boston, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Suarez has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen this season but should be stretched out to start, as he threw 5.1 innings in relief of Dylan Bundy (illness) on Monday. He'll now get the chance to take Bundy's spot on a permanent basis. The young lefty has looked good in 27.1 innings of relief this year, striking out a league-average 23.9 percent of opposing batters while producing a 50.7 percent groundball rate, helping him to a 1.98 ERA.
Suarez (3-1) allowed one run on two hits and a walk over 5.1 innings Monday, striking out five and earning a win over the Yankees.
Suarez entered the game in the second inning after Dylan Bundy (illness) was removed. The lone blemish on his outing was a solo shot off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton in the sixth. It was reported Monday that Suarez could eventually move into the starting rotation this season and he certainly helped his case, lowering his ERA to 1.98 with his longest outing of the season.
Angels manager Joe Maddon said Sunday that Suarez could be moved into the rotation at some point this season, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.
After an ugly showing in the 2020 campaign during which he gave up 10 runs in just 2.1 innings, Suarez has enjoyed a remarkable turnaround this season, posting a 2.05 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 21:8 K:BB across 22 innings out of the bullpen. The left-hander credits his success in part to better conditioning, and he explained through an interpreter that he "lost a lot of weight" in the offseason. His strong campaign has opened the eyes of Maddon and others in the organization to the point that a move to the rotation is a strong possibility. "We've talked about how he could help us this year," Maddon said. "We believe that, no question. That's definitely on the horizon. We've been trying to utilize him in different moments and keep him kind of stretched out so that when we do choose to do something like that, it's not gonna be a great add on regarding his workload regarding number of pitches. But everybody pretty much believes the same thing: that this guy is going to be a starter."
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.
