RotoWire News: Suarez tossed 1.2 clean innings in Sunday's spring training win over the Reds. He walked one and struck out one. (2/27/2017)
Profiles:  2017  (Click Year to Expand / Close)
Profile: Suarez is a classic fifth starter/swingman type who has a lot more value in real baseball than fantasy baseball. He debuted with 12 starts and 10 relief appearances of essentially league-average work, pitching similarly in both roles. He doesn’t miss nearly enough bats to be fantasy viable in either role. Even his minor league work doesn’t offer much hope in that area, as he managed just a 16% K rate in 544 innings coming with the Rays, Angels, and Giants. He has five pitches (with a distinct four-seamer and sinker) though it’s a collection of 45- and 50-grade pitches at best. The only shred of fantasy use would be milking some of his home innings (3.18 ERA in 39.2 innings at home) for a Band-Aid in National League-only situations. (Paul Sporer)

The Quick Opinion: Suarez is a swingman without enough swing-and-miss to make any sort of fantasy impact. He could possibly parlay his home innings into something of note if he were to take over the fifth starter role for a period of time, but he’s probably seventh or eighth in line for starts heading into the season.
