Jose Suarez went 5.2 innings, allowed six hits, three earned runs, walked two, and struck out three in Saturday's loss to Oakland.
Suarez has actually been good as the Angels back end of the rotation starter. He owns a 3.67 ERA, a 3.94 xERA, and a 4.06 FIP. All of these figures are very good, and the metrics are encouraging. But where Suarez loses fantasy value is his 8.05 K/9 and his 3.36 BB/9. If he can strike guys out at a higher rate, he would be a relatively dependable fantasy asset.
