Pedro Alvarez: Still hoping to play in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez is rehabbing his Achilles in hopes of returning to the majors in 2019, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Alvarez appeared in 21 games for the Marlins in spring training, hitting .324/.400/.647 with three homers in those appearances, but opted to become a free agent after being informed he wouldn't be on the team's Opening Day roster.

Marlins' Pedro Alvarez: Exploring options elsewhere
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez opted out of his minor-league contract Saturday with the Marlins and has 48 hours to decide whether to remain in the organization, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Alvarez exercised the opt-out after being informed he would not make the Opening Day roster, and now has a chance to pursue other opportunities. The veteran slugger would be headed to Triple-A New Orleans should he choose to stay with the Marlins.

Marlins' Pedro Alvarez: Clubs two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez went 2-for-2 with two home runs, three runs scored and five RBI in Saturday's spring game against the Mets.

Alvarez had only two extra-base hits this spring prior to Saturday, but was able to go deep twice after entering the game as a pinch runner. The 32-year-old joined the Marlins on a minor-league deal in December and is fighting for a place on the Opening Day roster.

Marlins' Pedro Alvarez: Joins Marlins on minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Monday which includes an invitation to spring training, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

There are few organizations easier to battle for a roster spot with than the Marlins, but even so, Alvarez doesn't necessarily have an inside shot. He's primarily a designated hitter, having started just 13 games in the field over the last two seasons. He no longer appears to have the bat capable of carrying his value as a bat-only player, though, as he hit just .180/.283/.414 in 45 games with the Orioles last season. Some positive regression from his .179 BABIP could help, but he'll be 32 years old next season and the rebuilding Marlins will likely prefer to give playing time to younger players.

Pedro Alvarez: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez elected free agency Thursday, Baseball America reports.

Alvarez hit .180/.283/.414 with eight homers across 45 games with the Orioles before being designated for assignment. He'll now hit the open market after finishing the season with Triple-A Norfolk. Entering his age-32 season, Alvarez will likely have to settle for a minor-league deal in 2019.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Placed on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez was moved to the 7-day disabled list Friday due to an Achilles injury, David Hall of The Virginian-Pilot reports.

Alvarez has posted a .285/.331/.467 slash line with eight homers and 32 RBI through 43 games at Triple-A Norfolk in 2018. The severity of the injury is currently unclear, so it's unknown if he'll require more than the minimum on the shelf.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Outrighted off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles outrighted Alvarez to Triple-A Norfolk.

As expected, none of the other 29 teams were willing to put in a waiver claim on Alvarez, a player with limited defensive value who only managed a .180/.283/.414 line across 127 plate appearances with the Orioles. He'll likely see steady at-bats as a designated hitter for Norfolk and post gaudy power production, but Alvarez has proven overmatched against major-league competition since joining the Baltimore organization in 2016.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Designated for assignment Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Takes advantage of chance to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored Thursday against the White Sox.

With Mark Trumbo (knee) still sidelined and a right-hander on mound, Alvarez got his second chance to start in the Orioles' series against the White Sox. He took advantage by getting on base three times. Overall, the story remains the same for Alvarez as he is slugging .484, but striking out at a 24 percent clip in 93 at-bats this season.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Swats eighth homer Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez got the start at DH and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Red Sox.

His playing time has mostly dried up since Mark Trumbo returned from the disabled list, but with Trumbo in right field Saturday, Alvarez got his second start in the last eight games and made the most of the opportunity. The 31-year-old now has eight homers on the season, but the power comes with a less impressive .198/.303/.500 slash line.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Back in action Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez (hamstring) is hitting eighth as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Phillies, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Alvarez is good to go after missing the last four games with a hamstring issue. The 31-year-old, who is hitting .200/.304/.488 with seven homers through 92 plate appearances this season, will face Nick Pivetta in his first game back.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Could return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez (hamstring) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

With Alvarez's health having taken a turn for the better in recent days, a trip to the disabled list doesn't seem to be in play. However, the hamstring issue will confine Alvarez to the bench for the fourth straight contest Sunday versus the Rays, resulting in Danny Valencia picking up a start at third base.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Buck Showalter said Alvarez is not ready to start after testing his hamstring prior to Saturday's doubleheader, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

The manager failed to comment on whether Alvarez would be available off the bench, but it seems as though Showalter wants to give his third baseman a little more time to recover after leaving with a cramp during Thursday's affair. In his place, Jace Peterson will man the hot corner for Game 1 of Saturday's twin bill.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Held out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez (hamstring) is not in the lineup against Tampa Bay on Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Alvarez was forced to leave Thursday's contest with a hamstring cramp and will remain on the bench for the series opener. It doesn't appear as though this is anything more than a minor injury, so consider him day-to-day ahead of Saturday's doubleheader.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Leaves with hamstring cramp Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez exited Thursday's win over the Royals with a hamstring cramp, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Anthony Santander came on to replace Alvarez in the fifth inning after suffering from cramps. There's no word on Alvarez's issue being anything beyond cramping, so he should be considered day-to-day heading into Friday's series opener against the Rays.

May 10, 2018 01:36 PM
Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Remains on bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez is not in the lineup against the Royals on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

This marks the second straight day out of the starting nine for Alvarez after he started the previous four. In his absence, Danny Valencia will get the assignment at third base while batting seventh in the order.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Goes deep vs. A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez went 1-for-3 with a home run, one RBI and a run scored Sunday in the loss to Oakland.

Alvarez was one of the lone bright spots for the Orioles, as he accounted for their lone run scored Sunday. He slugged his seventh home run of the season in the second inning. Alvarez is slashing a disappointing .205/.311/.500 through 30 games, and he'll look to turn around his performance at the plate in the near future as the Orioles begin a three-game series with the Royals on Tuesday.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Seeing large side of third-base platoon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez will start at third base and bat sixth Sunday against the Athletics, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Despite his limitations as a defender, Alvarez has earned steady at-bats at third base on the larger side of a platoon with Danny Valencia. Alvarez may need to start hitting again in order to hold off Valencia for playing time, however, as he's begun to slump after closing out April with four home runs over a three-game stretch. He's managed just one hit in 16 May at-bats while striking out six times.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Crushes two homers Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alvarez went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Tigers.

Alvarez was a late addition to the lineup after Danny Valencia was scratched with hamstring tightness. Alvarez ended up being Baltimore's primary source of offensive production, as he hit his fifth and sixth home runs of the season. While Sunday's performance was great, Alvarez may be at risk of seeing a drop in playing time in the near future with Mark Trumbo (quadriceps) approaching his return from the disabled list.

Orioles' Pedro Alvarez: Late addition to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Alvarez has been added to the Orioles' lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, according to Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com. Alvarez will start at third base and bat seventh.

The Orioles would have preferred to keep Alvarez on the bench against Tigers lefty Daniel Norris, but Danny Valencia's late scratch due to an undisclosed issue forced manager Buck Showalter to tinker with the lineup. Alvarez owns a .206/.272/.339 career batting line (69 wRC+) versus left-handed pitching.
