Alvarez underwent an MRI due to elbow soreness and Tommy John surgery is expected, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

He was making the transition from being a position player to pitching, and had to be shut down earlier this spring. This has to be pretty discouraging for Alvarez, who had only started the transition at the start of this spring training, as his future is now very cloudy. He will be out until at least May or June of 2018.
