Ranger Suárez avoided arbitration with the Phillies

Like the left-hander, other Venezuelans also agreed with their teams in MLB

Ranger Suárez was one of the great pitching sensations among Venezuelans in the 2022 Major League season.
In just his fifth year at the highest level of the ball, the Venezuelan lefty put the Philadelphia fans in the pocket, thanks to his performance during the regular season and, later, in the World Series.

Such was the acceptance that the native of Pie de Cuesta (Lara) had, that he avoided going to arbitration and signed for the 2023 campaign and an amount of $2.95 million.

The 27-year-old went 10-7 with a 3.65 ERA in 29 appearances, as well as being one of Philadelphia's tightest pitchers last postseason, going 2-0 with a minuscule 1.23 ERA in five. presentations, three of them as opener.

That dominance shown by Suárez established him as one of manager Rob Thompson's pieces for the upcoming season's rotation, joining Aaron Nola, Zack Wheeler and Taijuan Walker.

Others also signed

Like Ranger Suárez, a large group of Venezuelans avoided going to salary arbitration with their respective organizations and thus agreed to sign him for the 2023 campaign.

Thairo Estrada was one of those who decided to stamp his signature and thus wait for spring training in February.

The San Francisco Giants infielder lived his best year in the MLB during 2022, playing 140 games, of which he posted an average of .260 with 14 home runs and 62 runs scored.

Eliéser Hernánadez and Pablo López were two other Venezuelans who reached an agreement with the Miami Marlins and thus avoid going to salary arbitration.

For their part, Jesús Luzardo and Gleyber Torres will attend the audience with Miami and the New York Yankees, respectively.

Luzardo asks for $2.4MM; while the Marlins management is giving him $2.1 million for the 2023 campaign.
