Alvarez was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Tuesday.

Alvarez is hitting just .091 across seven games (two starts) in June and .180 on the season, so the Orioles decided to drop him from their 40-man roster. Steve Wilkerson had his contract purchased from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding roster move. Alvarez will now take a spin through waivers.
