  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Collects second win

    Suarez (2-0) allowed two runs (one earned) on a hit and a walk while striking out one over two innings to earn the extra-innings win versus the Nationals on Wednesday.

    This was Suarez's second outing since he was removed from the rotation following the returns of John Means and Kyle Bradish. Suarez gave up both runs in the 11th inning during Wednesday's game, squandering a two-run lead, but he ended up with the win when the Orioles took the lead for good in the 12th. The right-hander has been a pleasant surprise with a 2.29 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 17:4 K:BB over 19.2 innings this season across five appearances (three starts). Suarez is one of the multi-inning options in the bullpen for the Orioles, but he can also be an option for spot starts if necessary.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Shifted to bullpen

    Suarez is now listed among the Orioles' relievers heading into the team's weekend series in Cincinnati, Jake Rill of reports.

    Suarez was excellent in three starts for the Orioles, collecting a 2.35 ERA and 15:3 K:BB across 15.1 innings. It's possible he'll be needed for more starts down the line, but with Kyle Bradish (forearm) and John Means (elbow) returning from the injured list and making starts Thursday and Sunday, respectively, Suarez will shift to a long-relief role for now.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Allows four earned in no-decision

    Suarez did not factor into the decision during Sunday's 7-6 loss to the A's, allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk over four innings. He struck out six.

    Suarez allowed his first earned runs of the season, laboring through 83 pitches prior to being pulled with the lead after finishing four innings. Suarez had been unscored upon in his first two starts spanning 11.1 innings since being recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on April 17. Suarez's future in the Baltimore rotation is currently uncertain, as both Kyle Bradish and John Means are finishing up their respective rehab assignments and are expected to soon return to the big club.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Unscored upon again in victory

    Suarez (1-0) earned the win over the Angels on Monday, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out five batters over 5.2 innings.

    Suarez got another turn in the rotation after holding Minnesota scoreless in his season debut Wednesday, and he turned in a very similar pitching line. The right-hander again completed 5.2 scoreless frames, this time getting enough run support to earn his first major-league win since 2016. Suarez has now completed 11.1 scoreless innings to begin the campaign, though his lack of previous big-league success makes it reasonable to question if he can sustain his effectiveness. It's worth noting that the right-hander pitched in Korea over the previous two campaigns, and though he wasn't exactly dominant, it's possible that tenure helped him uncover something that is helping with his approach to major-league hitters. Suarez appears set to stick in Baltimore's rotation for the time being, and he lines up for a favorable matchup against Oakland in his next projected start.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Nabs another start

    Suarez is slated to start Monday's series opener versus the Angels in Anaheim, Jake Rill of reports.

    Though he was summoned from Triple-A Norfolk last week to make what was expected to be a spot start, Suarez will end up drawing a second turn through the rotation after he struck out four over 5.2 shutout innings against the Twins in what was his first MLB appearance since 2017. Both John Means (forearm) and Kyle Bradish (elbow) are in the midst of minor-league rehab assignments and may be ready to return from the 15-day injured list within the next week or two, but Suarez could be able to stick around in a starting role if he delivers another quality performance versus the Angels. Dean Kremer (4.91 ERA, 5.28 FIP in 22 innings) and Cole Irvin (4.64 ERA, 4.18 FIP in 21.1 innings) have served as the Orioles' back-end starters so far this season, but neither has performed well enough early on to be fully locked into a rotation spot for the long haul.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Fires 5.2 scoreless frames

    Suarez allowed three hits and no walks over 5.2 scoreless innings during Wednesday's 4-2 win versus Minnesota. He struck out four and didn't factor in the decision.

    The 34-year-old was a surprise selection to start Tuesday, which was his first MLB appearance since 2017, but he pitched well with 14 swinging strikes on 75 pitches and allowed just four baserunners. According to Jake Rill of, manager Brandon Hyde said Suarez will get additional turns through the rotation, which isn't a major surprise given his performance and the numerous injuries Baltimore is managing to its rotation.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Draws start Wednesday

    The Orioles selected Suarez's contract from Triple-A Norfolk and will have him start Wednesday's game against the Twins at Camden Yards.

    Suarez will be making his first appearance in the majors since 2017, when he tossed 31.2 innings out of San Francisco's bullpen. He had spent the last five seasons overseas in Japan and Korea before making his return to affiliated ball this winter, when he signed a minor-league deal with Baltimore. Though he didn't secure a spot on Baltimore's Opening Day roster, Suarez didn't have to wait long for a call-up while logging a 5.87 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 17:1 K:BB in 15.1 innings over three appearances (one start) for Norfolk. He'll be stepping into the rotation spot that opened up after Tyler Wells (elbow) was placed on the injured list, but Suarez may be in line for just one start before heading back to the minors. John Means (elbow) is set to make the fourth start of his rehab assignment Wednesday and could be ready to return from the IL when the Wells/Suarez spot in the Baltimore rotation comes up again next week.

  • Orioles' Albert Suarez: Latches on with Orioles

    Suarez signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Saturday, Jake Rill of reports.

    Suarez will officially return to affiliated ball after spending the past five seasons overseas. He spent 2023 with the KBO's Samsung Lions, where he put up a 3.92 ERA and 1.49 WHIP through 108 innings, and he will presumably add to the Orioles' minor-league depth at Triple-A Norfolk.

  • Diamondbacks' Albert Suarez: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Suarez was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    Suarez, who was designated for assignment over the weekend, will stick in the Diamondbacks' system after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 28-year-old owns a 4.51 ERA across two major-league seasons (115.2 innings) and will serve as organizational bullpen depth in 2018.

  • Diamondbacks' Albert Suarez: Designated for assignment

    Suarez was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Suarez was battling for an Opening Day bullpen gig with the Diamondbacks, but a lackluster showing in spring training (6.57 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 12.1 innings) saw him lose out to non-roster invitee Fernando Salas. The 28-year-old, who owns a 4.51 ERA across two major-league seasons (115.2 innings), will take a spin through waivers to determine where he might open the 2018 season.

  • Diamondbacks' Albert Suarez: Competing for long-relief role

    Suarez has given up five runs (four earned) on 10 hits and two walks across 9.2 innings in the Cactus League while striking out eight batters.

    Suarez, has held his own this spring and in his bid for a long-relief role, and his status as a Rule 5 pick gives Arizona added incentive to keep him on the Opening Day roster since the team would have offer him back to the Giants otherwise. Should Suarez maintain his place on the Diamondbacks' active roster all season, he would likely be a leading candidate to pick up a spot start any time the need arises.

  • Diamondbacks' Albert Suarez: Goes to D-backs in Rule 5 draft

    Suarez was selected by the Diamondbacks with the 14th pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday.

    A 28-year-old righty, Suarez is a rare Rule 5 pick in that he has already logged 115.2 innings in the majors, working to a 4.51 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 88 strikeouts. He actually has a better career ERA as a starter (4.28) than as a reliever (4.77), but the Diamondbacks have no shortage of starters, so Suarez will attempt to make the team as a reliever. He will need to be kept on the active roster all year, otherwise he will be exposed to waivers and offered back to the Giants.

  • Albert Suarez: Elects free agency

    Suarez elected free agency Friday.

    Suarez will hit the open market after pitching in 18 games for the Giants in 2017. During 31.2 relief innings, he posted a 5.12 ERA and 1.23 WHIP while sporting a 34:11 K:BB. Moving forward, the 28-year-old will look to find a home where he can be utilized as a middle man out of the bullpen.

  • Giants' Albert Suarez: Clean relief appearance

    Suarez recorded four outs without allowing a baserunner in a 5-3 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    The Giants' long reliever was called upon after Johnny Cueto failed to complete four innings. Suarez delivered this time around, but his 5.59 ERA in 16 relief appearances has kept the 27-year-old from being used in meaningful situations.

  • Giants' Albert Suarez: Gets final seven outs for first save

    Suarez allowed one hit while striking out three over 2.1 scoreless innings for his first save Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

    Suarez got the final out in the seventh inning and worked a perfect eighth, so manager Bruce Bochy decided to stick with the hot hand to close out a 6-3 lead. The former starter stretched out to 42 pitches, throwing 27 for strikes. He's no threat to interim closer Sam Dyson or rehabbing incumbent Mark Melancon (elbow).

  • Giants' Albert Suarez: Joins big-league club

    Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Suarez joins the major-league roster for the first time this season, adding length out of the bullpen with Steven Okert optioned down. The 27-year-old missed a significant stretch earlier in the year with a shoulder injury, but he's been solid since his return, posting an 11:3 K:BB over 13.2 innings (six appearances).

  • Giants' Albert Suarez: Dealing with sore shoulder

    Suarez, who was placed on the 7-day disabled list Thursday, is dealing with a sore shoulder, the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman reports.

    He was placed on the 7-day DL with Triple-A Sacramento earlier in the day, but the reason only became clear later on. It is supposedly nothing serious, but enough for the team to back off using him to start the season.
