Pirates | Pedro Alvarez to open season at third

The Pittsburgh Pirates intend to open the 2012 season with Pedro Alvarez at third base, according to team sources. "We're committed to Pedro as long as he's committed to doing what he needs to do," general manager Neal Huntington said. "The reality is that he has the ability to be a great player. We have to work hard to help him achieve that ceiling and achieve that potential. But at the same time, we have a business to run and we have to protect ourselves against the downside."
