RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Suarez is an international signee who splashed onto the prospect scene in 2012. The 21-year-old shortstop hit .288/.380/.409 with 45 extra-base hits and 21 steals in 511 at-bats for Low-A West Michigan last season. Heís already considered a plus defender, with solid instincts and a strong arm. The biggest question mark with Suarez looms with his ability to swing a productive bat at the higher levels of the minors and eventually the majors. At six-feet and 180 pounds, Suarez isnít the biggest player and his other tools are not the kind that make scouts salivate, but his production at the plate in his age-20 season is hard to argue. Heís still a couple years away from big league consideration and needs to prove himself at higher levels, but Suarez is starting to look like a name to monitor for keeper leagues that track minor league players.
