As usual, it rained in Philadelphia for Game 3 of the World Series. Unlike the last three times, though (1993, 2008 and 2009), this game wasn’t delayed — it was postponed to Tuesday night. The Houston Astros will stick with Lance McCullers Jr. as their Game 3 starter, but the Phillies’ pitching plans changed in a big way.

Originally, they planned to start Noah Syndergaard in Game 3, Ranger Suárez in Game 4 and Aaron Nola in Game 5. Now, Suárez moves up to Game 3 and Nola to Game 4, while Syndergaard moves back to Game 5. If Syndergaard works in relief before then, Kyle Gibson would start Game 5. Zack Wheeler will stay on schedule for a potential Game 6, with Suárez coming back for Game 7.

Even more important, perhaps, is that Major League Baseball decided to preserve the travel day between Games 5 and 6, avoiding the scenario of playing five games in a row, which would have hindered the team with a thinner pitching staff (the Phillies).

“We can empty our bullpen, so to speak,” Phillies Manager Rob Thomson said, referring to Game 5, “and then we have a day off and everybody should be ready to go the next day.”

Somewhat surprisingly, rainouts are actually quite rare in the World Series, usually happening only once or twice a decade. Before Monday, there had been only four outright postponements in the last 40 years: two in New York (Game 7 at Shea Stadium in 1986, Game 1 at Yankee Stadium in 1996) and two in St. Louis (Game 4 in 2006 and Game 6 in 2011). There was also the ultimate World Series rain delay: a roughly 48-hour suspension of play during the sixth inning of Game 5 in 2008 … right here in Philadelphia.

End of The Athletic's pitching preview of the Series:

... That’s the road map for the Phillies. Get 40 innings from Nola, Wheeler, Ranger Suárez, José Alvarado and Seranthony Domínguez, and they’ll have a chance, especially given the quality of their lineup. It’s been done before. — Eno Sarris

Well the Astros have ruined the start for many an opposing pitcher this year (and for a few years really).  

I am an unabashed Suarez fan.  He helped me win a league title last year and I have him on salaries of $7-$10 this year.  I'll keep him at that price where I can do so.

My observation as to the primary reason why his 2022 didn't go as well as 2021:  his pinpoint control eluded him this year.  More walks, more hits allowed, and quite a few fewer Ks/9 than last year.

I expect a $15-$20 season for him next year as long as he can stay healthy.

The road tilt on Tuesday against the Astros did not go so well: seven hits, two walks, six earned runs in three innings.

One week later, in Game 1 of the NLDS against last year's champs, all that tells us is he'll be well rested.

Rotoworld:

9.29: Ranger Suárez surrendered two runs over six innings on Thursday in a loss the Cubs. (Suárez was saddled with a tough-luck loss on Thursday afternoon as the
Phillies' offense was unable to get anything going at Wrigley Field. He
struck out five batters and only issued one walk. Patrick Wisdom's
first-inning RBI double and Ian Happ's fifth-inning RBI single accounted
for all of the damage against him. The 27-year-old left-hander will
carry strong 3.37 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 127/56 K/BB ratio across 152 1/3
innings (28 starts) into a road tilt on Tuesday against the Astros in
his final regular season outing.)

Big win for the Fightins (who are now tied with the Padres for the second wild card), big loss fro the Braves (who drop 1 1/2 back of the Mets).

Ranger Suarez (P) PHI - Sep. 22
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=14750

Suarez (10-5) earned the win over Atlanta on Thursday, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out four batters over six scoreless innings.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Suarez allowed just one extra-base hit -- a double off the bat of Austin Riley -- and racked up 12 swinging strikes. The left-hander departed having thrown 83 pitches (53 of which were strikes) while completing six frames to notch his second straight quality start. Over his past two outings, Suarez has surrendered just one run and seven hits over 12 innings to lower his season ERA and WHIP to 3.38 and 1.30, respectively.

Rotoworld:

08.17: Ranger Suárez spun seven scoreless innings Wednesday in a no-decision at Cincinnati. (Suárez got zero run support in what became a 1-0 loss for Philly. But he
certainly did his part, yielding just three hits and one walk across
seven shutout frames while racking up eight strikeouts. Looking far more
like the 2021 version of himself, Suárez has registered a 1.02 ERA and
33/8 K/BB ratio over his last 35 1/3 innings (six starts) dating back to July 16.)
