Baltimore Orioles 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Monday, July 25. OF Dariel Alvarez draws into the lineup in right field and is hitting ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez probably won't see enough playing time to be viable outside of deep AL-only leagues, and he has just seven hits in 29 career at-bats the last two years. He's a desperation source of salary cap relief in DFS this evening.

Baltimore Orioles OF Dariel Alvarez was recalled from Class AAA Norfolk Friday, July 22. The transaction corresponds with OF Joey Rickard (thumb) being placed on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez offers limited fantasy upside because he lacks speed and power, but he did hit .280 through 398 plate appearances with Norfolk this year. He could make for a low-priced flier in daily contests, but he's likely not worth adding in seasonal leagues.

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (back) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 25. OF Dariel Alvarez draws into the lineup and is batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Rich Hill Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Jones ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is expected to return to the lineup sooner than later, after he had an MRI exam reveal only inflammation in his back Thursday, Sept. 24. Continue to check back for updates on the outfielder. Alvarez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore players Friday.

Baltimore Orioles OF Gerardo Parra is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 18. OF Dariel Alvarez is starting in right field and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Parra ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) appears to be in a platoon and sitting against lefties, so when you add his .627 OPS since joining Baltimore, there isn't a lot to like about Parra's season-long value. Alvarez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a potential low-priced flier at FantasyScore Friday, but keep your expectations in check. He has just 24 plate appearances in his career.

Baltimore Orioles OF Gerardo Parra is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 17. OF Dariel Alvarez is starting in right field and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Parra ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) owns a .462 OPS in September, and he struggles with a .237/.280/.366 slash line against lefties this season, so it isn't surprising he is sitting out vs. southpaws lately. Alvarez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 5-for-16 against left-handed arms this season, and he lands in a great matchup against Moore ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) who has allowed a 1.046 OPS to righty bats. Alvarez is a worthy low-priced flier at FantasyScore Thurdsay.
