IF FELIX SUAREZ- PERFECT GAME REPORT
6-1/170, R/R, 1/6/96, Santo Domingo, DR
Trainer: Pedro “Nube” Nivar
PG Grade: 9.5
If you had to pick a sleeper among the infielders on the DPL roster Suarez would be one. He more strongly resembles an above average American high school shortstop who ends up at a major college program and is a top 3-5 round draft pick as a junior. Although he’s a 6.8 runner, Suarez doesn’t have the infield first step quickness or flash that his teammates have and his arm strength is currently fringy to stay on the left side of the infield. But he’s fundamentally sound and projectable in all areas.
Offensively, Suarez has a simple right handed approach and will flash surprising pull power in batting practice when he’s able to turn on the ball. His game approach is well balanced and one of the highlights of the Red Sox game in Fort Myers was when Suarez looped a double down the right field line off of a 98 mph fastball. He has a sound overall game and will definitely keep improving.
