PROMOTION: Ranger Suarez Promoted to AAA
Philadelphia Phillies starting pitching prospect has been promoted to the AAA Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. Suarez, 22, has been a consistently solid performer at each stop of his minor league career thus far. The lefty posted a 2.87 FIP in 14 A-Full Season starts in 2017, a 2.59 FIP in 8 A-Advanced starts in 2017, and a 3.09 FIP in 12 AA starts thus far in 2018. Keep an eye on him as he continues to climb the Philadelphia minor league ladder, but if he has success in the International League in the second half of the season, an early 2019 ETA is possible.
