Alford (hamstring) is expected to be optioned to Triple-A Buffalo once healthy,'s Mike Rosenbaum reports.

He has resumed light running and has taken batting practice since suffering the injury in spring training. Alford was having a strong spring before getting hurt, and the expectation is that he could eventually earn a promotion to the majors if he is producing at Triple-A. The big challenge for the oft-injured outfielder will be to stay healthy once he comes off the disabled list.
