Eugenio Suarez exits game with lower back tightness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:35 pm ET) Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez was removed from Tuesday's game due to lower back tightness, the team announced.

Suarez singled in his only trip to the plate Tuesday and also committed a throwing error. He is day-to-day moving forward. Suarez has hit .260/.347/.394 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 127 at-bats.


Slumping Eugenio Suarez scores twice in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) The Tigers got a solid contribution from infielder Eugenio Suarez Thursday, in a 6-4 win over the Angels.

Suarez reached base three times in the win, and made the most of his time on. He scored two runs and stole one base while going 2 for 3 with a walk.

Suarez has struggled in the month of July, hitting just .240 with seven runs scored in 15 games. He is still hitting .263/.351/.407 through the first 38 games of his career. 


Eugenio Suarez a no-go for clash against Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) Slumping Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez is grabbing some pine for the Sunday game against visiting Cleveland. Andrew Romine is manning the position instead.

Suarez has been hitless in four of his last five games. He has managed just two hits in 16 at-bats during that stretch to weaken his stat line to a still-respectable .259/.344/.407.


Hitters to start in Week 13


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/22/2014) Looking for a sleeper for Fantasy Week 13 (June 23-29)? Wilin Rosario, Ryan Howard, Tommy La Stella, Pablo Sandoval, Eugenio Suarez and Marlon Byrd might just fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Hype still lagging on Eugenio Suarez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/17/2014) With Jon Singleton, Oscar Taveras, Gregory Polanco and now Andrew Heaney hogging the spotlight, Eugenio Suarez's promotion two weeks ago barely registered in Fantasy even though his shortstop eligibility makes him potentially the most helpful to Fantasy owners.

Which isn't to say he's more valuable than those four -- he's not the same caliber of prospect by any stretch of the imagination -- but Suarez's pedigree suggests he could make an impact similar to the one Brad Miller made last season.

The power is legitimate. Granted, he won't homer at quite the pace he has so far, but he'll rack up his share of extra-base hits. It's new to his game this year -- he had a .510 slugging percentage in 198 at-bats between Double- and Triple-A prior to his promotion -- but seeing as he's only 22, it's a logical part of his development.

He was a disciplined hitter throughout his minor-league career as well, compiling an on-base percentage about 90 points higher than his batting average -- which is even better than Miller, actually.

Ranking him among the steady-but-unspectacular types like Jhonny Peralta and Erick Aybar is tricky, but if you're shooting for upside, Suarez is the shortstop to own.


Report: Tigers unlikely to trade for shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) The Tigers are unlikely to trade for Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins or another other shortstop, sources told FOX Sports. The team likes shortstop Eugenio Suarez and are satisfied with how Hernan Perez is progressing at Triple-A Toledo.

Eugenio Suarez homers, collects three hits Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez delivered a big performance at the plate Saturday, going 3 for 4 with a walk, a double, a triple, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in his team's 12-9 win over the Twins.

Suarez was 5 for 16 in seven appearances with the Tigers before exploding on Saturday. He delivered the first run in a big third inning Saturday with his third home run then added another RBI later in the inning with his double. He scored for the second time in the fifth inning after drawing a walk and scored his third run after a seventh-inning triple. With the big performance, Suarez has hit .400/.500/1.000 in 20 at-bats.


Eugenio Suarez emerging as sleeper at shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) Count me among the folks starting to buy into Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez

I know the track record isn't there. Prior to this season, he was hardly a blip on the radar and didn't show much offensive skills. After batting just .212 in spring training, he breaks out with a .288 average, .360 on-base percentage, .510 slugging percentage and .870 OPS in 54 games between Double-A and Triple-A before being promoted to the majors. And all Suarez has done since his promotion is continue to hit. 

I stumbled across a quote from Tigers first-base coach Omar Vizquel, who said Suarez's turnaround has been because he has put into practice the lessons he learned this spring from the coaching staff. Vizquel said Suarez's swing is a little shorter and he's laying off breaking pitches. 

Maybe it would be tougher to buy into Suarez's surge if he had been toiling in the minors for years and was much older, but he's only 22 years old, so he hasn't even reached the prime of his development.

Obviously, it would be a lot more convincing if Suarez was a top prospect and producing good offensive numbers for years, but maybe he's finally hitting his stride. I don't think his home run surge will continue, but Suarez could end up as a sleeper option at shortstop.


Eugenio Suarez making big splash


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Before Eugenio Suarez arrived, Tigers shortstops hit .191 with one homer and 11 RBI. Suarez has two homers and four RBI in four games (three starts) and sports a .364 average (4 for 11).

"He carries himself like a major-league player despite the fact that he's only been here a few days," manager Brad Ausmus told MLive.com. "He's a lot more poised than most guys his age. Whether that's from playing with some of these guys in winter ball, or going to big league camp, or believing in his ability, I couldn't tell you exactly."

Suarez, 22, is the sixth Tigers player in history to hit two homers in his first four career games.


Eugenio Suarez goes deep in first start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Tigers infielder Eugenio Suarez made an impact in his first major-league start Saturday, an 8-6 win over the Red Sox.

Suarez batted ninth but still made a contribution, as he reached base twice and scored each time. He slugged a solo home run to left field for his lone RBI, while finishing 1 for 3.

Suarez had eight home runs in 54 games in the minors before getting the call, so he has some pop. 


Eugenio Suarez will make first big-league start Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Updating a previous item, Tigers rookie shortstop Eugenio Suarez will make his first big-league start Saturday against Boston, MLive.com reports.

Suarez was called up from Triple-A Toledo earlier this week, but injured his knee in his first appearance. He took ground balls while wearing a brace on his knee and appears to be healthy enough to play.

The 22-year-old hit .302 with two home runs in 43 at-bats at Triple-A this year. He went hitless in his only at-bat Wednesday.

Eugenio Suarez still not ready to return Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Tigers rookie shortstop Eugenio Suarez remained out of the starting lineup Saturday against the Red Sox in Boston because of a knee injury. Suarez took ground balls while wearing a brace on his knee, and declared himself ready to play, MLive.com reports.

"I feel good. Maybe a little tight, but nothing hurt, nothing bad," Suarez said, per MLB.com.

The Tigers close out a three-game set against the Red Sox on Sunday.

Eugenio Suarez still up in air for Saturday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) The Tigers placed question marks at shortstop on the lineup released Saturday afternoon for their night game against visiting Boston.

Rookie Eugenio Suarez, who has been sidelined pretty much since his promotion with a knee problem, was taking ground balls before the game. The Tigers will determine if he is ready to make his first start.


Eugenio Suarez still sidelined Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Tigers rookie shortstop Eugenio Suarez has started just one game since his recall from Triple-A Toledo. That remains true Friday as a knee ailment has him out of the lineup.

Suarez told the media that his knee feels "fine," but Andrew Romine has been penciled into the lineup against Boston.


Eugenio Suarez day-to-day with knee issue


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez is day-to-day with a knee injury, according to MLB.com.

Suarez was expected to get the start Thursday, but hurt himself sliding Wednesday night. The injury doesn't sound all that serious, and he should return to action soon. Suarez went hitless in his only at-bat Wednesday. 


Eugenio Suarez latest arrival in prospect parade


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(6/4/2014) Tigers shortstop prospect Eugenio Suarez had generated some buzz this year with an early-season breakout at Double-A Erie, and after a two-week stopover at Triple-A Toledo, he was called up to the big league club on Wednesday.

Suarez was not in Wednesday's starting lineup versus the Blue Jays, and he may not be able to hold down the job for the rest of the season, but the Tigers likely brought him up to give him a shot to do just that. With regular playing time over the next four months, Suarez might be able to produce 10 home runs and 10 stolen bases with a .260ish batting average.

He has been inconsistent in his base-stealing efficiency, and his home run power is a recent development, but his upside makes him my 22nd-ranked shortstop in standard Head-to-Head formats and 26th in Rotisserie.

In other words, even if everything breaks right for Suarez, he's not likely to be a viable option in 12-team mixed leagues. However, he is a must-own in AL-only leagues and worth a flier in mixed leagues with at least 14 teams.


Tigers bring up Eugenio Suarez


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) The Tigers have promoted shortstop Eugenio Suarez from Triple-A Toledo in their seemingly never-ending search for a starter at that position.

The 22-year-old Suarez has shown some promise with the Mud Hens. He is batting .302 with two home runs and just nine strikeouts in 43 at-bats. His .404 on-base percentage also provides encouragement.


Tigers promote Eugenio Suarez to Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) The Tigers have promoted shortstop prospect Eugenio Suarez to Triple-A Toledo, MLive.com confirms.

Suarez, 22, hit .273/.339/.493 with six home runs, 26 RBI and seven stolen bases in 150 at-bats with Double-A Erie before the promotion. All of his 41 appearances at Erie came at shortstop. Suarez could be looking at a major-league promotion before the end of the season if he can prove successful against Triple-A pitching.


Tigers send seven players to minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) The Tigers announced Sunday they optioned pitcher Kyle Lobstein, pitcher Jose Ortega and shortstop Eugenio Suarez to Triple-A Toledo. They also reassigned catcher John Murrian, catcher Craig Albernaz, outfielder Ezequiel Carrera and outfielder Trevor Crowe to minor-league camp.

Tigers expect Jose Iglesias to sit out 2014 season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said Thursday the team is preparing to play the 2014 season without shortstop Jose Iglesias. Dombrowski said a CT scan "indicated bilateral tibia stress fractures."

"Jose’s activity will be limited to non-weight bearing conditioning for the next 4-6 months. He will be re-evaluated at the four-month mark," Dombrowski said, per The Detroit News. "That late into the year, my thought process is that it would be more unlikely than likely (that Iglesias will play again this season). My understanding, though, is that he will be fine for next season."

Dombrowski added the Tigers are still looking for an internal candidate to replace Iglesias. The three shortstop candidates currently with the team are Danny Worth, Hernan Perez and Eugenio Suarez


Tigers add seven to 40-man roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) The Tigers added first baseman Jordan Lennerton, shortstop Eugenio Suarez, outfielders Daniel Fields and Steven Moya and pitchers Kyle Lobstein, Jose Valdez and Justin Miller to the 40-man roster Wednesday.

Lennerton hit .278/.382/.430 with 17 home runs and 57 RBI in 514 at-bats with Triple-A Toledo. Suarez hit .264/.347/.396 with 10 home runs, 57 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 545 at-bats between high Class A Lakeland and Double-A Erie.

Fields hit .284/.356/.435 with 10 home runs, 58 RBI and 24 stolen bases in 457 at-bats with Double-A Erie. Moya hit .255/.296/.433 with 12 home runs and 55 RBI in 365 at-bats with high Class A Lakeland.

Lobstein went 13-7 with a 3.27 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 148:52 K:BB ratio in 167 2/3 innings over 28 starts between Double-A Erie and Triple-A Toledo. Valdez went 2-2 with a 2.74 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, 67:34 K:BB ratio and 33 saves in 49 1/3 innings between Class A West Michigan and high Class-A Lakeland.

Miller was signed in September and has missed most of the last two seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April 2012.

by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2013) The Detroit Tigers continued shaping their roster for the upcoming season and announced the following moves Monday: catcher Ramon Cabrera and shortstop Dixon Machado were assigned to Double-A Erie; pitcher Melvin Mercedes was sent to Class A Lakeland while outfielder Daniel Fields and shortstop Eugenio Suarez were assigned to the team's minor-league camp.
