  • Very good sign to see Suarez getting stronger with each outing just past the half-way point of the season. Better yet, to see two scoreless starts (10 IP) since his promotion to Clearwater on July 4th. Over the southpaw’s last 24.2 innings, Suarez hasnt allowed an earned run and has 31 K’s with only 4 walks. I’ve been high on the 21 year old since his days in the Venezuelan Summer League, when he found a spot on my 2014 Organizational All-Star list. He slipped way under the radar to most in 2015, as he was under utilized with the GCL Phillies, but returned as a UTR-OAS in 2016 with short-season Williamsport. If the Phillies Top UTR Pitcher of the Month in April sustains his performance throughout the season at Clearwater, don’t hesitate to pencil him down as a late draft flyer for 2018. In the Phillies system since 2012, last night’s 10 K’s was the third time he’s reached that mark this season, a career high.
