José Rances Suárez Quintero (born January 3, 1998) is a Venezuelan professional baseball pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Career[edit]

Suárez signed with the Los Angeles Angels as an international free agent in July 2014.[1] He spent his first professional season in 2015 with the Dominican Summer League Angels and Arizona League Angels, compiling a combined 3-3 record and 2.97 ERA in 15 games (13 starts). In 2016, he pitched for the Arizona League Angels and Orem Owlz where he was 1-4 with a 4.84 ERA in 12 games (six starts).

Suárez played 2017 with the Arizona League Angels and Burlington Bees[2] where he pitched to a combined 6-1 record and 3.28 ERA in 15 starts.[3] He started 2018 with the Inland Empire 66ers and was promoted to the Mobile BayBears and Salt Lake Bees during the season.[4][5] In 26 starts between the three clubs, he pitched to a 3-6 record with 3.92 ERA.[6]

The Angels added Suárez to their 40-man roster after the 2018 season.[7] He opened the 2019 on the injured list with shoulder soreness, and was assigned back to Salt Lake upon his return.[8] On June 2, Suárez was promoted to the major leagues for the first time to start versus the Seattle Mariners, where he picked up his first major league win.[9]
