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.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez replacing CarGo in Derby

Thu, 11 Jul 2013 15:46:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez will replace Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (finger) in the 2013 MLB Home Run Derby.

Fantasy Tip: CarGo will use the time off to rest, most likely. Alvarez has had a fine pop season and shouldn't be affected for regular-season play by this development. It's his typical M.O. anyway -- mash now, worry about contact later.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez rounding out approach

Wed, 10 Jul 2013 10:21:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez is starting to use the opposite field with authority, and his power to all fields is exceptional, according to GM Neal Huntington.

Fantasy Tip: Such an evolution certainly bodes well for Alvarez's long-term prospects and helps to explain a kind of breakthrough 2013 in terms of isolated power. He still makes contact too infrequently to threaten to sustain a high batting average, unfortunately, but a better approach should raise his BA floor in the long term.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez still striking out

Wed, 19 Jun 2013 20:11:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez has shown some improvement at the plate, hitting safely in 15 of his past 17 after the game Wednesday, June 19, against the Cincinnati Reds. However, he entered the game with 81 strikeouts in 215 at-bats, and he had a .282 on-base percentage. "How do you maximize the swing of the bat that you get when you get it?" manager Clint Hurdle said. "He's been a very good run producer for this team this season. He's had a lot of opportunities, as well, but he has shown the ability to rise to the occasion."

Fantasy Tip: The manager has Alvarez's back, so despite his lower batting average and high strikeout rate, it doesn't sound like his playing time will be dwindling anytime soon. Fantasy owners would like to see improvement, especially those in rotisserie formats, as he has been a killer in OBP.
