Early results positive for Pirates slugger Pedro Alvarez
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Just as it did for Indians slugger Carlos Santana in 2014, the move from third base to first base appears to have had a positive effect at the plate for Pedro Alvarez.

The Pirates made the switch after turning down trade proposals during the offseason. Alvarez has responded with a fine start. He boasts a slash line of .308/.333/.692 with three home runs and five RBI in 26 at-bats.

It's too early to determine how well Alvarez will perform long-term at his new position. He has one error in eight games.

"There's a lot more to it [than people realize]," he told ESPN. "With every position, there's a lot of responsibility that comes with it. I've never played first before, so it's obviously all new to me. It's just a matter of getting the repetitions and the work in and having those things become second nature."

Alvarez made at least 25 errors every year from 2012 to 2014 as a third baseman. The emergence of Josh Harrison prompted his move to first.

Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez hits first home run Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 3-2 loss to the Reds Thursday.

Alvarez was 1 for 6 with a double in his first two games before putting together a nice offensive showing Thursday. His home run came in the sixth inning and put his team up 2-0, but the Pirates let the lead slip away in the bottom half of the inning. Alvarez has two 30-homer seasons on his resume but hit just .231/.312/.405 with 18 home runs in 398 at-bats last season.

Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez homers twice vs. Phillies
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez went 2 for 4 with a walk, two home runs and six RBI in Monday's 18-4 win over the Phillies.

Alvarez smacked a two-run home run in the fifth inning before coming back with a grand slam in the eighth. He has hit .325 with four home runs in 40 at-bats this spring and said after the outing that spring stats "don't count, but they do matter," per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
