Latest Update Alvarez (foot) remains out of the lineup Monday Mon Sep, 01, 12:54 PM
Swings the bat with huge power. Has a big, strong frame and quick wrists. Also displays the potential to hit for a good average. Can be an impact player when he gets red-hot.
Flaws: : Is defensively challenged, especially at the hot corner. Will sometimes go on huge strikeout binges, and generally whiffs too often. Has had some minor issues with his conditioning.
This will make the fifth-straight game that Alvarez has missed with the foot issue. Ike Davis will continue to see the work at first base against right-handed pitchers while Alvarez is out.Analyst: Howard Bender
Alvarez continues to be hindered by the foot issue and will now miss his fifth-straight game. He was just starting to heat up at the plate when this happened so let's give it up for Murphy's Law and the busted pick that is Pedro Alvarez.Analyst: Howard Bender
Josh Harrison and Ike Davis will be starting for the Pirates at the corner infield spots for today's game. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Alvarez continues to deal with a foot injury and should be considered day-to-day still. The Pirates haven't indicated a potential DL stint yet, but that option is obviously open still. Ike Davis will play first base Friday.Analyst: Howard Bender
