Pirates | Pedro Alvarez working on throwing problems

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 11:51:38 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez was partly benched the last two days in order to work on his throwing problems at third base. Twenty one of his 23 major league-leading errors this year have been on throws. "He just needs to continue to work," manager Clint Hurdle said. "We want to help him regain his form on (offense and defense) that he's shown us in the past."

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez has become a platoon third baseman because of his throwing issues and his struggles against lefties and the fact that Josh Harrison has been raking. You should only own Alvarez in deep mixed and NL-only leagues at this point.

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez is out of the lineup for the second straight day against a lefty Wednesday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Starting Alvarez against a lefty is foolish, since he's hitting only .181 against them this year. Make sure he's out of your daily lineups today.

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.
