Pedro Alvarez unlikely to return to third base this season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez is unlikely to play third base again this season in anything but an emergency situation, MLB.com reports.

"Right now, I think we have a better option in Josh Harrison," manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday. "This season, right now -- to put the best team that I can on the field every night, we have better options. We have to find [Alvarez] some at-bats. Is third base the optimum place to get them? No, it is not."

Pedro Alvarez makes his first start at first base
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez will make his first start at first base Monday.

Alvarez has played the majority of his games at third this season. Alvarez has taken extra infield practice lately in expectation of the move. He's hitting .233/.314/.392 over 378 at-bats.

Pedro Alvarez returns to third base
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pirates infielder Pedro Alvarez is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Nationals at third base, his first start there in nearly two weeks.

Alvarez, who started the team's last two games as a designated hitter, has been putting in extra infield practice with the expectation he would make the transition to first base soon. However, he has yet to appear in a game at first base, and his role moving forward is not yet known.

Is that stashed superstar really worth the wait?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

So you're at the point, with the season winding down, where you have to win at all costs. Seems straightforward enough. The only problem is your bench is overflowing with players you can't actually use -- ones that are injured but too valuable to drop, like Brett Lawrie, Brandon Phillips, Adam Eaton, Michael Wacha, Paul Goldschmidt, Yadier Molina, Ryan Zimmerman, Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez or Masahiro Tanaka.

Or maybe your albatross isn't injured but just doesn't inspire much confidence right now, like Pedro Alvarez, Justin Verlander or Mike Minor.

I've got news for you: This late in the year, when winning is paramount, you can consider dropping them. Granted, it shouldn't be the goal because the competition can only benefit from whatever you forfeit, but sometimes, it's your only choice.

I break it down player-by-player in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, so if you could a little assistance with that season-shifting dilemma, be sure to check out.
