  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    Alvarez underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Alvarez has been sidelined since early July due to elbow inflammation, and the Giants announced last week that the southpaw would likely require Tommy John surgery. He officially underwent the procedure Wednesday and will likely be sidelined until at least 2024 due to the lengthy recovery process associated with the surgery.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Tommy John surgery likely on tap

    Alvarez recently suffered a setback in his rehab program from his left elbow injury and is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Alvarez was placed on the injured list July 7 due to elbow inflammation, only for the injury to later be diagnosed as an UCL strain. He elected to forgo surgery and was cleared to resume a throwing program earlier this month before experiencing the setback. Alvarez will likely seek a second medical opinion before deciding his next steps, but assuming Tommy John surgery is recommended, he'll likely go under the knife within the next few weeks. Alvarez has been ruled out for current season, and if surgery is indeed necessary, the reliever will likely be sidelined for the entire 2023 campaign as well.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Throws bullpen session

    Alvarez (elbow) threw a bullpen session Friday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Alvarez is on the 60-day injured list while recovering from left elbow inflammation and won't be eligible to return until early September. That should give him plenty of time to build up gradually in bullpen sessions before beginning a rehab assignment.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Begins throwing progression

    Alvarez (elbow) began a throwing progression Friday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Alvarez remains at least a month away from returning since he's on the 60-day injured list. That will allow him to ramp up carefully, and a clearer picture on his return timeline should emerge once he begins to face hitters.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Receives cortisone injection

    Alvarez (elbow) received a cortisone injection Thursday and hopes to avoid surgery, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The left-hander was transferred to the 60-day IL on Thursday after landing on the 15-day IL last week, and he'll be sidelined until at least early September. How Alvarez's elbow responds to the injection will dictate the next step in his recovery process.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Avoiding surgery for now

    Alvarez will not undergo surgery on his left elbow for the time being,Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Alvarez was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, which means he will be sidelined until at least early September. His elbow inflammation has not improved with treatment, but the Giants are still hoping he will be able to avoid surgery.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Alvarez (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports. Alvarez was initially diagnosed with left elbow inflammation July 7 when he was deactivated, but his move to the 60-day IL a week later is an indication that season-ending surgery is a strong possibility, per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. At the very least, Alvarez will be sidelined until early September as a result of the transaction. The Giants claimed reliever Aaron Fletcher off waivers from the Pirates on Thursday, and he'll fill Alvarez's spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Back on injured list

    Alvarez was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday due to elbow inflammation, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Alvarez was activated from the injured list Tuesday after a minimum stint caused by a back issue. His immediate return to the shelf is even more concerning given that he did not appear in a game. Though Alvarez will be eligible to take the mound again in late July, the Giants will likely take a cautious approach.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Begins rehab assignment

    Alvarez (back) struck out one over a scoreless inning in his rehab appearance Tuesday for Triple-A Sacramento. Alvarez was placed on the 10-day injured list June 21 with lower-back tightness, but he should be ready to rejoin the Giants' active roster in close to the minimum amount of time. Prior to being shut down with the injury, Alvarez produced a 5.28 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across 15.1 innings out of the bullpen.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Secures save Saturday

    Alvarez earned a save against the Dodgers on Saturday, allowing one run on three hits while striking out one over one inning. Camilo Doval has been working as the Giants' primary closer much of the season, but he was used in a tight spot in the eighth inning Saturday. That allowed Alvarez to get the ninth-inning opportunity, and he began the frame by serving up a homer to Freddie Freeman. The Dodgers managed two additional hits in the inning, but Alvarez was able to emerge with his first save since 2019 and just his fourth overall across his 10-year career in the majors.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Secures second win

    Alvarez (2-1) walked two batters and struck out two in 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the win in extra innings versus the Phillies on Tuesday. Alvarez had given up runs in each of his last two outings before Tuesday. He got the last out of the 10th inning after Camilo Doval blew a save, then stayed in the game to pitch the 11th and earn the win. Alvarez has a 4.61 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 13:9 K:BB across 13.2 innings in 19 appearances this season. He's added a blown save and a hold, though his unusually shaky command has made the southpaw less effective than he has been in recent years.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Charged with first loss

    Alvarez (1-1) allowed two runs on three hits in one-third of an inning, taking the loss and a blown save Wednesday versus the Rockies. Alvarez allowed an inherited runner from starter Logan Webb to score before surrendering a two-run home run to C.J. Cron. This was the second time in his last four outings Alvarez has allowed multiple runs. He's now at a 5.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 8:3 K:BB and one hold through nine innings across 13 appearances. The southpaw's limited usage and lack of save opportunities makes him a non-factor in most fantasy formats.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Logs first hold

    Alvarez retired the only batter he faced to earn a hold in Sunday's 12-3 win over the Nationals. Alvarez finished the seventh inning after Logan Webb gave up a double to Cesar Hernandez. Through five appearances, Alvarez has covered 3.2 innings, allowing one run on a hit and two walks with two strikeouts. The lefty reliever was effective in a versatile role last season, though he's unlikely to see many save chances as the Giants already have a crowded closer committee.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Hit hard Friday

    Alvarez allowed four runs on three hits and a walk with one strikeout in one inning in Friday's 7-7 tie with the Rangers. A key part of Alvarez's success in his first year with the Giants was his ability to limit home runs -- he allowed two in 64.2 innings. The southpaw pitched to a 5-2 record, 2.37 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 42:19 K:BB and eight holds in his 67 outings last season. Alvarez figures to serve mainly as a middle reliever or opener again in 2022, so he'll likely have limited fantasy appeal outside of formats that count holds given his lack of strikeouts.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Club option picked up

    Alvarez's $1.5 million club option for 2022 was picked up by the Giants on Sunday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Alvarez joined the Giants on a one-year pact in March and will receive a slight pay raise after his club option was picked up. The lefty made 67 appearances (one start) in 2021 and posted a 2.37 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 64.2 innings.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Picks up win over Arizona

    Alvarez (5-2) earned the win Tuesday versus Arizona. He pitched a perfect sixth inning. The southpaw did his part to keep the game tied at 1-1 before San Francisco's four-run rally for the lead in the bottom of the sixth. Alvarez has been solid in September, allowing four runs (three earned) in 10.1 innings across 13 games. He sports a 2.43 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 41:19 K:BB and seven holds through 63 innings overall.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Records scoreless inning

    Alvarez allowed a hit and struck out two in a scoreless inning during Monday's 9-1 win over San Diego. The southpaw has allowed one run in four innings since a disastrous start to an Aug. 30 bullpen game. Alvarez has emerged as a reliable middle-innings option for manager Gabe Kapler. Through 56.2 innings, Alvarez has a 2.38 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 38:17 K:BB while adding five holds and a 4-2 record.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Takes loss against Brewers

    Alvarez (4-2) allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks across 1.2 innings, taking the loss to the Brewers on Monday. Alvarez made the start Monday in place of scheduled starter Johnny Cueto (illness). He surrendered six baserunners that accounted for a pair of runs in his short outing. It was the first two runs he has allowed since July 9, a stretch where he fired 20.2 scoreless innings in 20 appearances. The 32-year-old has a 2.39 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 34 strikeouts in 52.2 innings this season.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Still strong in relief

    Alvarez hasn't allowed a run since July 9. The left-hander has made 17 consecutive scoreless appearances, yielding just six hits and two walks while striking out 11 in his last 19 innings. Alvarez has added two wins and two holds in that stretch, which is one of the best in his career. For the season, he's logged a 2.19 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 32:12 K:BB while adding a 4-1 record and four holds. His FIP is at 3.13 with a BABIP of .215, which indicates he's still enjoyed some luck despite overall positive results this year.

  • Giants' Jose Alvarez: Riding scoreless streak

    Alvarez has not allowed a run in his last 10 appearances. The 32-year-old has covered 11 innings in that span, yielding just three hits with no walks and seven strikeouts. Alvarez continues to fill a fairly versatile relief role, but he's picked up only two holds with a 4-1 record in 40.1 innings this season. His ratios are solid at a 2.61 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 28:10 K:BB.
