  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Unlikely to break camp with Dodgers

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Alvarez isn't expected to be on the team's Opening Day roster, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.

    Alvarez has made a case for a roster spot with a strong spring during which he has slashed .375/.444/.792 with three home runs and six RBI over 12 games. However, it isn't clear where the veteran infielder might fit on a loaded Dodgers roster. It's unclear whether Friday's trade in which Los Angeles acquired Craig Kimbrel for AJ Pollock will impact Alvarez's prospects for a roster spot; as it stands, the primary beneficiary of playing time as a result of the move is likely to be Gavin Lux, who is tentatively slated to be the team's primary second baseman.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Links up with Dodgers

    Alvarez announced Jan. 1 via his personal Instagram account that he agreed to a minor-league contract with the Dodgers.

    Los Angeles has yet to officially announce the deal, so until that happens, the 32-year-old won't be participating in minor-league spring training even though he's not a member of the 40-man roster. Once the MLB lockout concludes, Alvarez will presumably join the Dodgers for major-league spring training, at which point he'll compete for a utility role on the Opening Day roster while attending camp as a non-roster invitee. The veteran infielder has seen action in 36 MLB games with Miami between the past two seasons, slashing .188/.287/.287 with one home run and three stolen bases across 115 plate appearances.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Cast off 40-man roster

    Alvarez was outrighted to Triple-A Jacksonville on Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Alvarez spent the final month of the 2021 campaign with the major-league club and hit .188 with a homer, eight runs, six RBI and a stolen base across 24 games. He'll be removed from the 40-man roster but will likely compete for a major-league roster spot during spring training in 2022.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Two hits, stolen base

    Alvarez went 2-for-4 with a triple, run, RBI, stolen base and strikeout in Sunday's 5-4 victory over Philadelphia.

    Miami has been making a point to give Alvarez more run, and the 31-year-old delivered with a two-hit performance featuring his first career triple and first theft of the season. He concludes a 24-game season with a .188/.297/.328 slash line, one home run, eight runs and six RBI.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Stepping up at third base

    Alvarez is starting at third base Friday against the Pirates and is expected to see more playing time down the stretch, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    GM Kim Ng and manager Don Mattingly recently indicated they wanted to see Alvarez receive more opportunities over the final couple weeks of the season, and they have apparently followed through on those statements since Isan Diaz was optioned to the minors Friday. Alvarez in 2-for-18 in eight games this season but should see regular time at the hot corner going forward.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Swats first big-league homer

    Alvarez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in a 6-4 victory over Atlanta on Saturday.

    The 31-year-old has navigated a long path to the majors, and after going homerless in 41 plate appearances last season, he slugged his first big-league long ball off Charlie Morton in the second inning Saturday. It was just the second hit overall for Alvarez since being called up to the big club Sept. 7. He has never been a prolific power hitter -- Alvarez's career high for homers in a minor-league campaign is 12 in 2019 -- so fantasy managers need not rush to pluck him off the waiver wire.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Promoted to majors

    Alvarez's contract was selected from Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.

    The 31-year-old infielder hit .288/.423/.441 with four home runs and two steals in 31 games at Triple-A. With Miguel Rojas (neck) and Jon Berti (concussion) banged up, Alvarez will provide some short-term depth.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Joining Marlins for spring training

    Alvarez signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Sunday.

    Alvarez's deal includes an invitation to big-league spring training, where he'll be given the opportunity to compete for a utility spot on the Marlins' Opening Day roster. The 30-year-old switch hitter made his MLB debut in 2020, appearing in 12 games for Miami and slashing .189/.268/.216 over 41 plate appearances while going 2-for-2 on stolen-base attempts.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Remains in organization

    Alvarez cleared waivers Friday and was outrighted the Marlins' alternate training site, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    The 30-year-old made his big-league debut this season but accomplished very little at the plate in 12 games, hitting .189/.268/.216. He'll remain in an organizational depth role moving forward.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: DFA'd by Miami

    Alvarez was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Sunday.

    The 30-year-old saw regular action for the Marlins during a brief stretch in August following the team's COVID-19 outbreak, but he's now been removed from the 40-man roster. Alvarez had a .189/.268/.216 slash line with six runs, two stolen bases and 16 strikeouts in 41 plate appearances.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Moves back to alternate site

    The Marlins optioned Alvarez to their alternate training site Monday.

    Miami called Alvarez up from the alternate site ahead of Sunday's series finale in Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old started at second base in the 5-4 loss, going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts. He wasn't in line to see regular playing time while he was up with the big club, so Miami opted to remove him from the 28-man active roster to make room for right-hander Jose Urena, who was reinstated from the COVID-19 list ahead of his scheduled start Monday in Atlanta.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Recalled and starting

    Alvarez was recalled from the team's alternate site Sunday.

    Alvarez was recalled after Harold Ramirez (hamstring) was placed on the injured list. He's in the team's lineup Sunday, batting eighth and starting at second base. Alvarez is hitting just .206/.289/.235 in 11 games in the big leagues this season, but he's also managed to swipe two bases.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Sent back to secondary site

    Alvarez was optioned off the Marlins' active roster Saturday.

    Alvarez has gotten into the first 11 games of his big-league career this season, stealing two bases but hitting just .206/.289/.235. Harold Ramirez was activated from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Back with big club

    The Marlins recalled Alvarez from their alternate training site Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    He'll take the active roster spot of starting pitcher Elieser Hernandez (lat), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Alvarez was previously up with the big club for about a three-week stretch in August, appearing in 11 games while slashing .206/.289/.235 with two stolen bases in 38 plate appearances. He's expected to serve as a utility infielder for the duration of his second stint with the Marlins.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Optioned to alternate site

    Alvarez was reinstated from the paternity list and optioned to the alternate training site Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    He saw somewhat regular playing time over the last three weeks, but hit just .206 with a 34.2 percent strikeout rate. Lewin Diaz was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Placed on paternity list

    Alvarez was placed on the paternity list Friday.

    The 30-year-old will take a few days away from the team to be with his family for the birth of his child. Alvarez was already seeing less playing time with the return of Miguel Rojas from the injured list, so it's unclear what type of role he'll come back to.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Heads to bench

    Alvarez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports.

    Though the Marlins will deploy Jonathan Villar and Logan Forsythe as their starters in the middle infield Sunday, shortstop Miguel Rojas' return from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday will likely result in Alvarez losing out on regular at-bats. Alvarez, who is batting .200 with two stolen bases through his first eight big-league games, will head to the bench in the series finale after starting the Marlins' past three contests.

  • Marlins' Eddy Alvarez: Scores three runs in win

    Alvarez went 1-for-4 with a walk, three runs scored and an RBI in Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Blue Jays.

    His final trip home delivered the winning run; after striking out to end the ninth inning, the 30-year-old rookie began the 10th at second base under MLB's new extra-inning rules and came around on Magneuris Sierra's single to right field. Alvarez is now hitting .211 (4-for-19) through his first six big-league games.
