Organization Prospect Rankings
Suarez stands out as arguably the best athlete in the Red Sox system, a player who one evaluator described as looking like a defensive back with plenty of quick-twitch and fluidity in his overall game. Suarez started switch-hitting after entering the Sox's system, showing some intriguing pop from the left side while displaying greater refinement as a righthanded hitter (.322/.369/.407 in the GCL in 2017). Both of his swings have average or better bat speed with smoothness and rhythm. He's got average hands and range, which means he's probably more suited to second base than shortstop. His average speed with controlled aggression on the basepaths showed up in games, as he went 11-for-12 in stolen base attempts last year, adding to the impressions of a player who, though raw, has the diverse skill set to emerge as an everyday center fielder. No matter where he plays, the next step is either at low Class A Greenville or a return to short-season Lowell after extended spring training.
