The Angels, after a rocky first inning by Nick Tropeano, pitched well on Friday night -- until the decisive 10th inning, when left-hander Jose Alvarez gave up a go-ahead, pinch-hit RBI single to Franklin Gutierrez, then surrendered a two-run home run to Nelson Cruz as the Mariners took a 5-2 victory at Angel Stadium.

Greg Mahle, Mike Morin, Jose Alvarez and Fernando Salas. The Angels' ever-critical, continually elusive seventh-inning role is a combination of four relievers striving to keep leads intact for Joe Smith and Huston Street.

The Angels acquired Jose Alvarez hoping he could serve as Triple-A starting pitching depth or, perhaps, if everything went right, an effective swingman in their Major League bullpen. They didn't give much thought to him potentially holding leads as one of their key relievers, but that's precisely the 26-year-old left-hander's role in the early stages of the 2016 season.

From Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com: The Anaheim Angels converted an out-of-options utility infielder into some much-needed starting-pitching depth today, when Andrew Romine was traded to the Detroit Tigers for 24-year-old left-hander Jose Alvarez. The Tigers were in desperate need of infield coverage now that shortstop Jose Iglesias may miss the entire 2014 season with a stress...
The Tigers acquired a shortstop Friday and it was not Stephen Drew. Needing to shore up the position now that they know Jose Iglesias will miss four to six months with stress fractures in both legs, the Tigers traded left-hander Jose Alvarez to the Los Angeles Angels for Andrew Romine.
