Pirates | Pedro Alvarez showing signs of finding swing?

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez appeared to put good swings on pitches Wednesday, May 11, and is hopefully about to work his way out of his season-long slump and put his recently injured quadriceps behind him. "It's just him finding his rhythm and his comfort zone, as well," said manager Clint Hurdle. "He's well aware of what he needs to do. Last night he was able to put a foot down and, I think, make some pretty good passes at some balls and barrel some up. He looked much better. We'll see where it goes." Alvarez is batting fifth Thursday, May 12, since OF Andrew McCutchen is sitting out.
