Alvarez was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Tuesday to make room for Ricardo Rodriguez on the 40-man roster, and will remain at Double-A Frisco. The 23-year-old has a unsightly .189/.279/.283 slash line with 53 strikeouts in 159 at-bats for the RoughRiders this season.
Alvarez was bumped off the 40-man roster to make room for Ricardo Rodriguez following his activation from the disabled list. He's put together a dismal .189/.279/.283 batting line at Double-A Frisco through 41 games.
Alvarez was sent back to Double-A Frisco on Tuesday.
Alvarez was up for just one day and did not get into a major-league game. He was sent right back down when Adrian Beltre (hamstring) was activated from the disabled list. Alvarez is hitting just .196/.290/.299 for Frisco, making him an unlikely candidate for another promotion, though he's already been called up once so it's certainly possible.
Alvarez was recalled from Double-A Frisco on Monday.
This comes as a bit of a surprise, as the 23-year-old hasn't seen any time above the Double-A level in his career. Alvarez's stats with the RoughRiders this season are also less than stellar, as he's hitting just .196 with 35 strikeouts in 107 at-bats. He'll likely fill a reserve utility role in the big leagues. Drew Robinson (hip) was placed on the disabled list to clear a spot on the active roster for him.
Alvarez was recently designated for assignment by the Phillies on Friday following the addition of Pedro Florimon to the 40-man roster. The second baseman appeared in 54 games at the Double-A level in 2017, slashing .247/.321/.382 with four home runs, 26 RBI and eight stolen bases.
