RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Andrew Suarez.
The Giants' 2015 second-round pick was promoted to Double-A Richmond in 2016, finishing with a 3.95 ERA in 19 starts. While the ERA left room for improvement, Suarez exhibited his excellent control in posting a 3.8 K/BB ratio. The southpaw relies mainly on his low-90s fastball and slider to attack the opposition, but he does mix in a changeup to keep hitters honest. He will undoubtedly start the year in the minors, but Suarez isn't too far away from the majors. He could put on the fast track if he gets off to a hot start in 2017.
Suarez moved swiftly through the minors after being drafted by the Giants this past summer, going from rookie ball to short season, and reaching High-A San Jose before year's end. He posted great numbers at all three levels. Like the player that was selected before him (Chris Shaw), Suarez was drafted to address a glaring need within the Giants' farm system; in this case, left-handed starters. At age 23, Suarez possesses excellent control and should progress through the minors quickly. He doesn't have huge upside, but could be a solid back-of-the-rotation starter. Those in keeper and dynasty leagues will want to aim a little higher.
