3B - CIN
3B Eugenio Suarez is a “100 percent healthy.” said Reds’ manager David Bell.
Suarez underwent right shoulder surgery in January. He is a "100 percent healthy" and should be all systems go for summer camp. Prior to the shutdown, Suarez was swinging a bat without a issue. The 28-year-old slashed .271/.358/.572 with 49 homers, 103 RBI, 87 runs and three stolen bases across 662 plate appearances in 2019. He is currently 10th among all 3B in the latest expert consensus rankings.
Reds GM Dick Williams says Eugenio Suarez (shoulder) is "100 percent".
Suarez underwent surgery in January to remove loose cartilage from his shoulder. There was a chance even back then that he would be ready for a normal Opening Day, so he'll certainly be ready to roll if/when things get underway this summer.
Eugenio Suarez is fully recovered from his swimming injury in January, and is full-go for whenever the 2020 season will begin.
It looks like the downtime has really helped Suarez's shoulder to fully heal. With this news, his ADP will likely creep up near the top 50. Monitor his power during the spring, as shoulder injuries can sometimes result in a loss of power.
Eugenio Suarez (shoulder) took some swings in the batting cage on Friday.
There is still hope that Suarez could be ready for Opening Day but it remains unclear when he will get into a Cactus League game. If he has to start the season on the injured list the good news is he probably won't be out long.
Eugenio Suarez (shoulder) has begun light throwing workouts at Reds camp.
Suarez is progressing but there is still no timetable for his Cactus League debut. The third baseman has yet to swing a bat, which makes it likely he'll begin the 2020 season on the injured list.
