Pirates Injury Update: Pedro Alvarez exits with foot sprain

The Pittsburgh Pirates improved to 68-64 on the season following a 5-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals last night. With the win the Pirates are five games out in the division and a game and a half back in the wild card race. There is a bit of concern moving forward, as Pedro Alvarez left the game with a foot sprain after going 0-for-3 with a strikeout.  #454157306 / gettyimages...

Pirates top Cardinals, 5-2, on Davis' homer; Alvarez, McCutchen hurt

Ike Davis understands why he has lost playing time to Pedro Alvarez. “Petey hit something like five home runs in two days,” Davis said with a smile. “He deserves to play. You can't really argue with that.” In a tense eighth inning Tuesday, Davis made a case that maybe he has earned another look. He smacked a pinch-hit, three-run, homer that lifted the Pirates to a 5...

Alvarez sparks another victory for Pirates over Brewers

It had been 42 days since Pedro Alvarez last homered for the Pirates when he launched a 1-0 fastball over the left-field wall Saturday night at Miller Park in the fourth inning to turn the game on a dime. His next took less than 20 minutes. Alvarez hit two opposite-field home runs off Wily Peralta in consecutive innings. Russell Martin hit a three-run shot, and Neil Walker had...

Game 129: Pirates 10 Brewers 2

When idiot bloggers say things like it’s “insane and inexcusable” to play Pedro Alvarez at first base in the pennant race, it sort of circumvents an entire discussion about Pedro Alvarez and Ike Davis. Ike Davis isn’t really hitting like an ideal first baseman, he’s consistently on base and Pedro Alvarez isn’t consistently anything. Alvarez, though, has more raw power...

Clint Hurdle throws up hands in frustration, starts Pedro Alvarez at first base

Ike Davis has not been a particularly great acquisition for the Pirates this year. I guess he’s provided the Pirates some Garrett-Jones-level production for slightly less money than Garrett Jones would’ve cost, but Garrett-Jones-level production these days is about replacement level, which is squarely where Davis sits in his few months with the Pirates. You don’t trade potentially...

Why Isn’t Pedro Alvarez Producing?

In a mini-throwback post from numberFire (published this past Tuesday), they took a look at what’s wrong with Pedro Alvarez. As I’m sure everyone knows by now, Alvarez is out and Josh Harrison is in. For those of you (like me) who drafted Alvarez in the mid-to-late rounds expecting at least a .230 average and 28-35 HR at third base, the fall has been particularly painful. Finding...

The Move to First Base Almost Done for Alvarez, Pirates

Through his struggles on defense and league lead in errors, Pedro Alvarez continues to battle something that has haunted him all season long for the Pittsburgh Pirates. No one knows exactly what is wrong with Alvarez, but everyone still holds their breath when he fields a groundball at third base, hoping that the 2013 NL […]

The Pedro Alvarez Problem Solved

Clint Hurdle has had a lot of tough decisions to make this season from injuries and inconsistent starting pitching to playing solely the hand he’s been dealt. Hurdle gave Josh Harrison a chance to play third base and it seems as if he’s now the starter at the hot corner. Pedro Alvarez, the NL Silver […]

Pedro Alvarez is becoming unplayable at third base

Pedro Alvarez‘s 24th error of the year didn’t cost the Pirates in Saturday’s 8-3 win over the Diamondbacks, but one wonders if it might have been the final straw. After the game, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review beat writer Rob Biertempfel quoted Pirates GM Neal Huntington saying that all options are open right now and that “everything will be taken into consideration.” Biertempfel...
