Alvarez (0-1) allowed an unearned run on three walks in the 10th inning to take the loss versus the Mariners on Thursday.

Alvarez was brought on to start the 10th but he lacked control and walked three straight batters to lose the game. The 31-year-old southpaw is a versatile option in the Giants' bullpen, but it's more likely he logs middle-relief assignments, as he's only recorded three saves in his career. Last year with the Phillies, he had a 1.42 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and one hold across 6.1 innings.
