      Report: Pirates seeking to deal 1B Pedro Alvarez

      The Pirates are exploring the possibility of trading first baseman Pedro Alvarez, an American League talent evaluator has told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. They would likely need someone in return that could play that position since their current options are limited, though Travis Ishikawa has similar career numbers to those of Alvarez. The 28-year-old Alvarez has struggled despite slugging a home run Thursday. He entered play with a .231/.299/.414 slash line. But he can also play third base, which might attract suitors.
