Miami’s Andrew Suarez Searches For 2014 Form

The results weren’t pretty for Andrew Suarez, who battled himself as much as he did the North Carolina Tar Heels in Chapel Hill last Saturday. Pulled after throwing 60 pitches in just three innings (4 H, 1 ER, 4 BB, 2 SO), the Miami left hander repeatedly missed with a fastball that didn’t reach higher than 91 […]
