Phillies pitcher Ranger Suarez has been recalled from Team Venezuela and has returned to Clearwater, Florida, after reportedly feeling tightness in his left forearm.
Ranger Suarez Returns to Clearwater
Ranger is set to receive treatment in Clearwater, but the team, nor Ranger, expects the injury to be anything worrisome. He’ll rest a few days and expects to be ready for his first start of the season.
“Everything is fine. They’re not concerned about it. I just wanted to get it checked out” – Ranger Suarez
Suarez will no longer pitch alongside Jose Alvarado for Team Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic. The Phillies have multiple players in the tournament…Schwarber, JT, and Trea for Team USA, Garrett Stubbs for Israel, and Taijuan Walker for Mexico.
The Phillies are still waiting on the final results on star 19-year-old Andrew Painter. Nobody really knows what’s going on, and although no reports have been released in over a week, Rob Thomson says Painter is in “good spirits,” and the team wants to get it right before any action is taken.
Note: If you’re not watching the World Baseball Classic, you need to tune in. Just electric stuff. Team USA officially kicks off their tournament tomorrow night at 9:00 PM.
