  • BAL Catcher #91
    This was a quick stay with the Orioles as the move was necessary to call up RHP Albert Suárez for Wednesday’s game against the Twins as a spot starter. The 27-year-old backstop slashed .270/.369/.526 in 48 games at Double-A in 2023 in the Twins organization.
  • Starting Pitcher #92
    Orioles selected the contract of RHP Albert Suárez from Triple-A Norfolk and will start in Wednesday’s series finale against the Twins.
    It’s been eight years since Suárez has made a major league start, but the 34-year-old will get his opportunity today. Suárez inked a minor league deal with the Orioles in the offseason and showed promise in spring camp where he posted a 5.17 ERA, 1.21 WHIP with an impressive 19/2 K/BB ratio across 15 2/3 innings. The veteran pitcher has made 40 major league appearances, all coming with the Giants during the 2016 and 2017 seasons with a career 4.51 ERA across 115 2/3 innings.
  • MIA Relief Pitcher #51
    Cronin was sent down to the minors when Miami activated Vladimir Gutierrez, but the 26-year-old will join the active roster after George Soriano was sent down to Triple-A. Cronin made two appearances in the Marlins’ first series of the season where he didn’t allow a run in his four innings pitched. He’ll look to add relief depth for a Marlins team that has gotten off to a brutal start.
  • MIA Relief Pitcher #62
    The 25-year-old reliever struggled in his eight appearances in the majors. Soriano posted a 10.29 ERA, 1.86 WHIP and a 8/6 K/BB ratio across seven innings pitched. He’ll continue to develop down at the minor league level.
  • ARI Second Baseman #4
    Marte’s homer off Adbert Alzolay tied the game with two outs in the ninth, and the Diamondbacks quickly won the game on Randal Grichuk’s pinch-hit single leading off the bottom of the 10th. The homer was Marte’s fourth of the year, and he’s batting .301/.361/.534 in 83 plate appearances.
  • ARI Starting Pitcher #47
    Henry isn’t a big velocity guy, but his 89.5 mph average with his fastball tonight was his lowest mark in 29 big-league starts and he was also down some last time out. With a 6.87 ERA in four starts, he seems like the right choice to get bounced from Arizona’s rotation to make room for Jordan Montgomery.
  • CHC Starting Pitcher #28
    We doubt the Cubs will pull Hendricks from the rotation with Jameson Taillon returning, but manager Craig Counsell simply must employ a quicker hook with the veteran right-hander. Hendricks should have been pulled after giving up four runs in four innings tonight. Instead, he was left in to face the top of the Diamondbacks order for a third time in the fifth and wound up allowing three more runs while getting just one additional out. It left Hendricks with a 12.71 ERA after four starts. He’s allowed seven homers in 17 innings this season after giving up a total of 13 in 137 innings last year.
  • CHC Starting Pitcher #73
    Alzolay has allowed just three runs in 8 2/3 innings this season, but each of those runs has been a solo homer that’s resulted in a blown save and the Cubs have gone on to lose all three games. It doesn’t seem like that should be sufficient to get him pulled from the closer’s role, but it’s possible the team could try Hector Neris and/or Mark Leiter Jr. if they think the stress is causing Alzolay issues.
  • CHC Center Fielder #8
    The homer off Kyle Nelson was Happ’s first of the year and his fourth career grand slam. The Cubs had him batting seventh tonight against lefty Tommy Henry, but he’ll likely be back in the leadoff spot versus a righty on Wednesday.
  • CHC Second Baseman #2
    Hoerner was leading off against a lefty tonight, something he’s also done the only other two times the Cubs have faced southpaws this season. He’s remained locked into the seventh spot against righties, but he definitely has a case for moving up while Seiya Suzuki, who had been hitting second, is on the IL with an oblique strain. Tonight’s performance puts him at .264/.403/.340 for the year.
