Saturday Bird Droppings: The pitching staff is shaping up

Good Morning, Birdland!

The Albert Suárez hype train has been derailed a bit this week. On Sunday, the righty managed to earn the win with four innings of work, but he also served up three runs in the process. Then on Friday he got knocked around to the tune of five runs on six hits, a walk, and three strikeouts over 2.1 innings. His ERA in the Grapefruit League is up to 6.35.

It’s not all about on-field performance. After all, Corbin Burnes owns a 12.71 ERA right now, and he’s going to be taking the hill on Opening Day.
