Pedro Alvarez smacks two doubles Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez led the charge offensively in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays, going 2 for 3 with two doubles and two runs before being replaced defensively.

Alvarez has been one of the more prolific power hitters at his position over the last two seasons, with 66 home runs to his credit, and he just missed his first home run of the spring when he picked up his first double with a shot off the center field wall. He's looking to improve on last season's .233/.296/.473 line.

Pirates want Pedro Alvarez to become a 'better hitter with power'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez hit a career-high 36 home runs in 2013, but he also struck out a career-high 186 times and posted a .296 on-base percentage. However, Alvarez one of the team's top performers in the NLDS against St. Louis, batting .353 with a .421 on-base percentage, .941 slugging percentage, 1.362 OPS, three home runs and six RBI in five games.

The Pirates hope Alvarez becomes a better all-around offensive player in 2014.

"We continue to maximize what he showed in September and October," general manager Neal Huntington said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "And that was the ability to close down and the ability to close some of those holes and to become a better hitter with power [rather] than a power hitter that occasionally gets hits. He's making great strides there, he's so intelligent, he cares so much, he works so hard."
