Pirates | No Pedro Alvarez

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:25:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez (knee) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 25, against the Colorado Rockies. 3B Brent Morel is filling in at third and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Morel is worth a look in daily games. He is cheap, and the game is being played at hitter-friendly Coors Field. Alvarez hasn't played since he left early Tuesday, July 22, because of left knee discomfort. Check back for updates on Alvarez's status.

Pirates | Starling Marte to be placed on DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 12:27:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte (head) will be placed on the disabled list, but it is not known if it will be the seven-day disabled list or the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Travis Snider may receive more playing time while Marte is out of the lineup. Josh Harrison could also receive some playing time in the outfield but could also play third base, depending on Pedro Alvarez's injury. Snider should help in NL-only leagues but may not have much value in mixed leagues.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez taking better approach

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 08:10:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez, who hit his second homer of the spring Wednesday, March 12, and is hitting .320 so far, received praise from manager Clint Hurdle for his demeanor this spring. Hurdle said Alvarez has been focused but also has been at his most relaxed when at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Adding maturity is a plus, but fantasy players shouldn't expect much more than what Alvarez offered last year outside of the potential for a slightly better BA.
