Friday afternoons during the offseason are normally pretty slow, but today saw some shocking news for Hurricanes Baseball.
Source: Univ. of Miami LHP Andrew Suarez is returning to school for his junior season. Was drafted by the #Nationals in second round.

I’ll get to speaking about this coherently in a second, but first…
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH YES YES YES AHHHHHHHHHHHHH
RON WEASLEY AND FRIENDS, THOUGHTS???
Suarez, the first ‘Cane picked in the 2014 MLB Draft, makes a stunning return to Coral Gables for the 2015 season after failing to come to terms on a contract with the Washington Nationals, who selected him in the second round. His return is a HUGE and desperately needed boost to the 2015 starting rotation, where he will immediately slot in as the ace of the staff. Last year, Suarez made 16 starts, finishing 6-3 with a 2.95 ERA and stunning 87-15 strikeout to walk ratio. He allowed just 108 hits in over 109 innings pitched.
We’ll look ahead to what this means for the starting rotation and which pitchers will join Andy in the weekend staff much closer to baseball season, but for now IT’S TIME TO JUST FEEL GOOD ‘CANES FANS! This is a huge break that Miami will happily take for 2015.
Welcome back to the U, Andy!!!
