Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 50 Swing is short; compact; minimal movement; quick wrist flicks; steady path through zone; solid-average bat speed; keeps hands and elbow quiet; feet can become sloppy at times; moderate load; easy swing; shows ability to pull hands in against inside pitches; average eye and discipline; recognizes spin off hand.
Power 40 Minimal power; quick bat and mild arc allow for Suarez to drive the ball; quick torquing hips; doubles power but shows ability to pull and drive ball down the line; will never be known as a power guy.
Baserunning/Speed 50 Not a burner; shows average speed; second gear is decent; ability to steal bases is more based on ability to read a pitcher.
Glove 50 Average range; moves well to the SS hole; less range up middle; quick feet; soft hands; ability to charge short-hoppers; footwork around base needs work; back-hands too many plays in the hole when he could simply set himself and provide an easier throw.
Arm 55 Plus arm strength; throws are erratic; sometimes will short-arm to first base, resulting in balls sailing or below the first basemen's knees.

Suarez has some ability, but none of his tools are loud. He could be a second division starter with a decent hit tool, but this is not an impact bat and likely never will be. The most important aspect of his game is the ability to stick at shortstop, which will boost his value to a club solely because he is able to play multiple positions on the infield.
