Pirates | Pedro Alvarez close to debuting at 1B

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 14:36:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez is close to playing his first game at first base, according to manager Clint Hurdle. "He's working his backside off to find a level of comfort and say, 'Okay. I'm ready to go over there in a major league game,'" Hurdle said. "I think we're real close to that. There will be a day here soon when you'll see him over there." Alvarez has been looking smooth at first base after losing his starting job at third base because of his poor throws. He's unlikely to start at first before this weekend, though, and he'll probably be used as the designated hitter Wednesday, Aug. 13, and Thursday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez still has plenty of pop in his bat, but inconsistent at-bats make him very tough to keep on a roster in mixed leagues. It's unclear how often he'll play if he proves efficient at his new position, but there is hope. Ike Davis could really lose out here.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez taking grounders at 1B

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 14:51:10 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Pedro Alvarez took ground balls at first base before the game Friday, Aug. 8, and worked on his footwork and positioning around the bag. Alvarez could become an option at first base in the near future, despite the fact that he has never played first in his career. He leads the majors with 24 errors this season.

Fantasy Tip: First base may be an avenue that will keep Alvarez relevant in deep mixed leagues for his power. If he starts playing at first, that would be bad news for the lefty-swinging Ike Davis.

Pirates | Less pressure on Ike Davis

Sun, 25 May 2014 07:48:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Ike Davis hit cleanup Saturday, May 24, and manager Clint Hurdle said he has stressed that hitting home runs isn't something Davis needs to focus on. "We've really backed off the impetus of (him) being the guy who had to hit home runs," Hurdle said. "In his own way he has calmed some things down. I think the security that comes with knowing he's going to get at-bats, not wondering if this is his last at-bat, has helped." Davis is hitting .338 this month.
