PEDRO ALVAREZ RUMORS

Pedro Alvarez < 500

This is an unpopular opinion, but I think there’s a decent chance that Pedro Alvarez will be the exact first baseman the Pirates need him to be in 2015. This is buried well underneath the throwing problems, the position change, the power outage, and the foot injury, but in 2014, Pedro Alvarez finally did the two things that everyone has been saying that he needed to do to become...

First Pitch: Why it Doesn’t Matter That Pedro Alvarez Isn’t at Mini Camp

First Pitch: Will Pedro Alvarez Have Any Trade Value This Off-Season?

It’s safe to say that Pedro Alvarez’s stock in Pittsburgh is down, at least among Pirates fans. That may even be true for the organization as well. Alvarez has struggled this year at third base, leading to a move across the diamond to first. He has also seen a drop in his power numbers, which led to Josh Harrison and Ike Davis getting playing time over him. Despite the struggles...
