Ranger Suarez provides an injury update on his left forearm
Phillies left-handed starter Ranger Suarez spoke with the media this morning and gave an update on his injured left forearm.
Ranger Suarez: “I’ll let ya know in one week”
A very Ranger Suarez-like response. Suarez was recalled from Team Venezuela at the World Baseball Classic on March 10th and returned to Clearwater with “left forearm soreness.” The team believed it was a minor injury at first, and they still do, along with Suarez, who has said since the 10th that he hasn’t really felt any gruesome pain. Suarez played catch this morning.
Ranger believes he’ll be ready to make his first start of the season, which will most likely come on April 2nd, the series finale vs. the Texas Rangers. Although the injury bug is floating around the Phillies right now, there’s no reason to be truly worried about Suarez, or Stubbs, who was removed from Team Israel due to “knee soreness” yesterday.
The Phillies are currently trailing the Braves 4-2, but Nick Castellanos just crushed an opposite-field two-run homer.
