  • 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.

  • Giants' Albert Suarez: Lands on MiLB DL

    Suarez (undisclosed) was placed on the 7-day disabled list Thursday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    It's unclear what's bothering Suarez at this point in time. Teams are frequently pretty fluid with their minor-league DL, so there's a chance that the ailment could be relatively minor. Things should become clearer once more is revealed regarding his injury.

  • Giants' Albert Suarez: Sent to Triple-A

    Suarez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Suarez was in contention for the fifth starter spot heading into camp, though Matt Cain ended up winning the job. The 27-year-old posted a 3.97 ERA across 11.1 innings this spring. He'll start off at Triple-A as depth, but he could earn some spot starts throughout 2017.

  • Giants' Albert Suarez: Good first outing

    Suarez tossed 1.2 clean innings in Sunday's spring training win over the Reds. He walked one and struck out one.

    This was a good start to spring training for Suarez, who is making his case to make the Giants' 25-man roster. Assuming good health, Matt Cain is expected to be named the team's fifth starter when we get closer to Opening Day, but Suarez and Ty Blach are going to be given an opportunity to prove themselves as viable options. Even if he doesn't make the rotation, Suarez -- a swingman -- could also be used in a long relief role like he was for portions of the season last year. With a 4.29 ERA and 5.8 K/9 last season, Suarez would only deserve deep-league consideration if he were to make the rotation.

  • Giants' Albert Suarez: Will compete for fifth starter job

    Suarez will compete for the fifth starter spot this spring, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Matt Cain is the heavy favorite to win the job based on his tenure, but health has been an issue for the veteran pitcher over the past couple of years. Suarez is realistically battling for the long relief role on the Opening Day roster, a role he filled admirably last season.

  • Giants' Albert Suarez: Fails to go five innings Friday

    Suarez gave up three runs on five hits over four innings Friday. He walked one and struck out one in a loss to the Padres.

    All of Friday's damage was done on a first-inning three-run homer off the bat of Wil Myers. Suarez failed to go five innings for the first time this month, breaking a streak of four straight five-inning appearances. He hadn't gone more than five innings in any of those starts, so he's consistent but not desirable for fantasy purposes. With an off day coming up Monday, there is a chance Suarez's next turn in the rotation is skipped, which would leave the rookie with just one more scheduled regular-season start.
