    • Phillies' Jose Alvarez: Will serve as opener
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alvarez will be used as an opener Saturday against the Dodgers, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. In many ways, it's surprising that a forward-thinking manager such as Gabe Kapler took until now to embrace the opener trend. The platoon-heavy Dodgers make for an ideal candidate to test the system against, with both righty Vince Velasquez and lefty Cole Irvin available in long relief. The move guarantees that Alvarez will pitch, but it also means he'll face the toughest part of the Dodgers' order and will not get the chance for a win.

    • Phillies' Jose Alvarez: Slams door in series finale
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alvarez allowed one run in a scoreless inning and secured his first save of the season Sunday against Miami. It was a quick seven-pitch inning for Alvarez, who gave up a leadoff single before getting two ground balls to end the ballgame. After surrendering eight hits and five runs (four earned) over his previous two appearances (three innings), a strong showing was just what the 29-year-old lefty needed to gain some confidence back. The Phillies continue to deploy a closer-by-committee approach, but the southpaw probably won't be heavily involved.

    • Phillies' Jose Alvarez: Loses game in 10th inning
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alvarez (0-1) took the loss Tuesday against the Nationals, allowing four runs on six hits (including one homer) while striking out two in 1.1 innings. The lefty was able to retire Adam Eaton to close out the ninth inning and send the game to extras, but he couldn't get the job done in the 10th frame. He allowed five straight hits to start that inning, with a Juan Soto three-run homer doing most of the damage. Alvarez has now allowed multiple runs in two of his first four appearances this season.

    • Phillies' Jose Alvarez: Avoids arbitration
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alvarez agreed to a one-year, $1.93 million contract Friday that allowed him to avoid arbitration, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Alvarez was traded from the Angels to the Phillies in early December, and he's expected to open the 2019 season in his new team's bullpen. His solid 2.71 ERA with 59 strikeouts over 63.0 frames a year ago were the best numbers he's posted during his young career, and he could see plenty of mid-to-high-leverage opportunities if he keeps it up.
