Albert Suarez was lit up for five earned runs over 2 2/3 innings Monday in a Cactus League start against the White Sox.

Suarez was having a decent spring up to this point, but his Cactus League ERA shot up to 6.57 after Monday's outing. The 28-year-old right-hander was selected by the Diamondbacks with the 14th overall pick in December's Rule 5 Draft and will have to be offered back to the Giants if he does not crack Arizona's Opening Day roster. He's fighting for one of the final spots in the bullpen.

Diamondbacks selected RHP Albert Suarez from the Giants with the 14th pick in the Rule 5 draft.

Suarez has pitched in the big leagues for parts of the last two seasons, though the results haven't been all that great. The 28-year-old right-hander will be competing for a long relief spot in Diamondbacks camp next spring.

Giants non-tendered RHP Albert Suarez.

The 28-year-old hurler appeared in 18 games for the Giants in 2017, compiling a 5.12 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 34/11 K/BB ratio across 31 2/3 innings. Given the plethora of teams in the market for bullpen depth, he shouldn't be out of work for long.

Giants recalled RHP Albert Suarez from Triple-A Sacramento.

Suarez appeared in 22 games for the Giants in 2016, posting a 4.29 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 54/26 K/BB ratio over 84 innings. He'll function in middle and long relief for the Giants.

Giants optioned RHP Albert Suarez to Triple-A Sacramento.

Suarez was in the mix for both the fifth starter's spot and a long reliever role in the bullpen, but lost out on both. He'll begin the year as organizational depth at Triple-A.

Albert Suarez allowed two earned runs in five innings Sunday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Suarez pitched pretty well other than a two-run Aledmys Diaz homer, but he was out-dueled by Cardinals youngster Alex Reyes. Suarez gave up five total hits and one walk while striking out two. He holds a 4.16 ERA.

Albert Suarez kept the scoreboard relatively clean in Tuesday's no-decision against the Padres, allowing one run on six hits over five innings.

Suarez struck out two and walked one on the evening. The lone run to score on his watch touched the plate courtesy of a Luis Sardinas RBI single in the third inning. Over the course of 20 appearances (10 starts), the 26-year-old right-hander has pitched to a 4.20 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. A home showdown with the Cardinals shows next on his schedule.

Albert Suarez pitched well in a loss to the Cubs on Friday afternoon, surrendering two runs on three hits over his five frames.

Suarez walked two and punched out three on the day. The right-hander had thrown just 88 pitches in the ballgame before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the sixth inning. He'll continue to occupy Matt Cain's spot in the starting rotation while Cain gets himself back in track out of the bullpen. He draws a very tough assignment his next time out, taking on the Rockies at Coors Field on Wednesday.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy announced Thursday that Albert Suarez would make another start for the Giants on Friday against the Cubs in Chicago.

Bochy indicated that he liked how the right-hander threw the ball in his last start. Matt Cain didn't look sharp in his final rehab outing, so he'll return to the club's bullpen while Suarez continues to fill in.

Albert Suarez got hit with a loss after giving up three runs in 4 1/3 innings to the Braves on Saturday.

All of the damage came on a three-run bomb by Matt Kemp in the fourth inning. Suarez fanned five batters while giving up two free passes and five base hits. He is now 3-2 with a 4.35 ERA in 60 innings split between the rotation and the bullpen. He has also been called up and sent down to Triple-A multiple times this year. He is no more than a shaky streamer in fantasy leagues.

Giants recalled RHP Albert Suarez from Triple-A Sacramento.

The 26-year-old hurler has appeared in 16 games for the Giants this season (six starts), compiling a 4.20 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 40/17 K/BB ratio. He could be worth a look as a streaming option against the Braves on Saturday.

Giants optioned RHP Albert Suarez to Triple-A Sacramento.

He's a casualty of the Giants' trade deadline moves. Suarez, 26, owns a 4.20 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 55 2/3 innings this season at the major league level.

Giants recalled RHP Albert Suarez from Triple-A Sacramento.

As Cory Gearrin is being placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, the Giants needed a healthy arm in the pen. Enter Suarez. The 26-year-old right-hander held a 3.72 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 33/12 K/BB ratio in 12 games (including six starts) prior to being optioned down on July 4. There is no fantasy upside here.

Giants optioned RHP Albert Suarez to Triple-A Sacramento.

The move clears a spot for Sergio Romo's return from the disabled list. Suarez has a 3.72 ERA and 33/12 K/BB ratio in 48 1/3 innings as a starter and reliever this season. He should get another shot soon.
