  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: On track for Opening Day rotation

    Suarez (forearm) threw a successful bullpen session Sunday and is expected to start during the opening week of the regular season, though he will have workload limitations, Todd Zolecki of reports.

    The workload limitations are no surprise given manager Rob Thomson already admitted Suarez won't be fully stretched out by Opening Day, but it appears he won't be too far off from a full workload. Suarez appears fully past the bout of forearm tightness he experienced earlier in March, and he should be able to get into a game or two during the final stretch of spring training.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Will throw bullpen session Sunday

    Suarez (forearm) threw a light bullpen session Friday and is set to throw a full bullpen session Sunday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Suarez has been dealing with left forearm tightness for a week or so but has made some nice progress. While the Phillies have acknowledged he will not be fully stretched out for the start of the regular season, they still plan to carry Suarez on their Opening Day roster and build up his stamina on the fly.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Won't be fully built up

    Phillies manager Rob Thomson acknowledged Thursday that Suarez (forearm) won't be fully built up for the start of the regular season, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    The Phillies still intend to carry him in their rotation and will stretch him out on the fly. Suarez fell behind earlier this month when he experienced a bit of tightness in his left forearm as he prepared to represent Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic. He's been throwing on the side without issue since he arrived back at camp, but fantasy managers should expect some abbreviated outings early on.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Throws on flat ground Tuesday

    Suarez (forearm) did some light tossing on flat ground Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    The left-hander had to be pulled out of the World Baseball Classic due to some minor tightness in his left forearm, but that he's throwing again after a couple days of treatment seems like a good sign. It's not clear when Suarez might be ready to pitch in a Grapefruit League game, but the Phillies are hoping he'll be ready to go on Opening Day.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Nursing forearm tightness

    Suarez was brought back from the World Baseball Classic due to left forearm tightness, Todd Zolecki of reports.

    The Phillies believe the injury to be minor, but they will push Suarez back a few days as he receives treatment. While his performance took a step backward on the mound last season, he still managed a 3.65 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over 155.1 innings. The southpaw will shoulder a similar workload in the rotation this season, health permitting.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Gets $2.95 million from Philly

    Suarez signed a one-year, $2.95 million contract with the Phillies on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Suarez had a disappointing first half for Philly in 2022, but he was very good after the All-Star break and fantastic during the club's postseason run. For fantasy purposes, the left-hander would do well to regain some of the swing-and-miss he produced in 2021.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Secures win in Game 3

    Suarez pitched five scoreless innings and earned the win during Tuesday's 7-0 victory over the Astros in Game 3 of the World Series, allowing three hits and one walk while striking out four.

    Suarez made his second appearance of the World Series after coming in for relief during Game 1, and he notched his second postseason win on the mound. The southpaw rarely found himself in trouble against the feisty Houston lineup -- the Astros had runners on first and third with two outs in the second inning but he was able to strike out Chas McCormick to end the inning. The 27-year-old is now 2-0 with a solid 1.27 ERA across 14.2 innings during the playoffs, showing off his reliability and versatility in his first career postseason. Suarez threw 76 pitches, so it is unclear if he will take the mound again before the World Series is over.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Earns save in Game 5

    Suarez pitched a perfect two-thirds of an inning and earned the save Sunday during Game 5 of the NLCS in a 4-3 win over the Padres.

    Suarez relieved David Robertson with a one-run lead in the ninth after a pair of walks put the go-ahead run on first, but he was able to get Austin Nola to fly out for the final out, sending the Phillies to the World Series. The 27-year-old had started Game 3 and pitched five innings just two days ago, so it was a gutsy performance to close out the series in Game 5. Suarez has now pitched nine innings in the postseason and has allowed just two runs while striking out eight.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Earns first postseason win

    Suarez pitched five innings and earned the win during Friday's 4-2 victory over the Padres in Game 3 of the NLCS, surrendering one earned run on two hits and zero walks while striking out three.

    Pitching in the postseason for only the second time in his career, Suarez was able to limit the Padres' offense and help give the Phillies a 2-1 advantage in the NLCS. The 27-year-old lefty was given a short leash Friday with just 68 pitches through five innings, but he did his job and allowed the bullpen to secure the win. In two starts, Suarez now has a 2.22 ERA and eight strikeouts over 8.1 innings in the postseason, which is impressive considering the southpaw became a full-time starter in 2022 after four seasons of mostly relieving.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Gets little help in loss

    Suarez (10-7) allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two over three innings, taking the loss Tuesday versus the Astros.

    Suarez received virtually no support, as the Phillies didn't record a hit until the ninth inning. The southpaw also yielded three home runs over the first two innings to account for all six runs on his line. Suarez had put up quality starts in his three most recent starts before the poor ending to his season. He record a 3.65 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 129:58 K:BB across 155.1 innings through 29 starts this year, his first as a full-time starter.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Dominates over six innings

    Suarez (10-5) earned the win over Atlanta on Thursday, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out four batters over six scoreless innings.

    Suarez allowed just one extra-base hit -- a double off the bat of Austin Riley -- and racked up 12 swinging strikes. The left-hander departed having thrown 83 pitches (53 of which were strikes) while completing six frames to notch his second straight quality start. Over his past two outings, Suarez has surrendered just one run and seven hits over 12 innings to lower his season ERA and WHIP to 3.38 and 1.30, respectively.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Allows one earned run

    Suarez did not factor into the decision against Atlanta on Friday, allowing one run on two hits while striking out four and walking three over six innings.

    Suarez was able to limit the damage to just one run on a William Contreras home run in the fourth inning, giving the southpaw a quality start. This was Suarez's first quality start since Aug. 17. Since then, he has given up 13 earned runs across 26 innings, good for a 4.50 ERA during that span. Suarez now has a 3.53 ERA on the season to go along with a 1.30 WHIP.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Records win against Washington

    Suarez (9-5) earned the win Saturday, allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk over 6.2 innings against the Nationals. He struck out four.

    Suarez surrendered a two-run homer to Joey Meneses to open the scoring with one out in the third and later allowed an RBI double off the bat of Ildemaro Vargas. The lefty has been shaky in his last four starts, recording a 5.40 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 20 innings. Interestingly, the 27-year-old has been significantly better on the road this season with a 2.76 ERA in 75 innings compared to a 4.70 ERA in 59.1 innings at home.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Goes four innings Sunday

    Suarez allowed three runs on four hits and two walks with four strikeouts over four innings in a no-decision versus the Giants on Sunday.

    Suarez got through the Giants' order once with little trouble, but he made a mess of things in a three-run fourth inning. He wasn't given the chance to continue beyond that, with Nick Nelson taking over in the fifth. Suarez threw 44 of 69 pitches for strikes in the abbreviated outing, his second straight start of less than five frames. The lefty saw his ERA tick up to 3.52 with a 1.33 WHIP and 110:49 K:BB through 127.2 innings through 24 starts this year. He's projected for a home start versus the Nationals next weekend.

  • Phillies' Ranger Suarez: Can't capitalize on big lead

    Suarez didn't factor in the decision against Arizona on Monday, tossing 3.2 innings and allowing six runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out four batters.

    Suarez looked to be in line for an easy win after beginning the game with three scoreless frames and being staked to a 7-0 lead. Things fell apart for him in the fourth inning, however, as he was chased after a Carson Kelly bases-loaded double with two outs closed Arizona's deficit to 7-6. Suarez wasn't entirely at fault for the disastrous inning -- he would have been out of danger two batters earlier if not for a fielding error behind him -- but it was nonetheless his shortest start since he went only three innings against the Dodgers on May 20. Suarez still had a pretty strong August overall, posting a 2.83 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 26:12 K:BB over 28.2 innings across five starts.
