Ranger Suárez Contract, Salary and Net Worth

The Philadelphia Phillies have struggled to find a closer they can trust in the most crucial of situations over the last few years, which has been a continuing discussion.

Hector Neris has held the position of a closer for the longest time due to his veteran status with the team, but his reign has not been without problems.

Neris’ productivity has fluctuated at an astonishing rate since being named the full-time closer in 2017. He finished 2018 with an ERA of over 5.00 but followed that up with an ERA of 2.93 and a career-high 28 saves in 2019.

Suarez’s promotion to closer seems like a no-brainer given how many saves the Philadelphia Phillies bullpen has already blown this season (they’re on pace to establish a new team record).

In 2021, Suarez has been the team’s finest reliever, with a 0.85 ERA in 19 appearances.

Suarez’s shift to a permanent closer role eliminates Girardi’s ability to use him as a length option out of the bullpen right away.

Suarez has been asked to pitch 2-3 innings at a time (after an early exit from a starter) on several occasions this season, and he has done it admirably.

Following a few strong innings to start his major league career, Bailey Falter appeared to be a viable long-man replacement, but his recent debacle against the Cubs could be a precursor to worse things to come.
