As the Nationals noted in a press release on the left-hander, Suarez, "...  attended Christopher Columbus High School where he was named All-Dade County First-Team and an AFLAC All-American."

The Nationals second round selection was their last pick on the first day of the 2014 MLB Draft, their next pick is the 93rd overall pick in the 3rd Round, which will take place tomorrow.
