Orioles | Dariel Alvarez recalled from Class AAA

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:29:47 -0700

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.

Orioles | Adam Jones out against Red Sox

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 14:13:32 -0700

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.

Orioles | No Gerardo Parra against Tampa Bay

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 12:56:50 -0700

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.

Orioles | Gerardo Parra out vs. Rays

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 13:13:39 -0700

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.

Orioles | Gerardo Parra sitting vs. Red Sox

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 12:06:28 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Gerardo Parra is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 14. OF Dariel Alvarez is starting in right field and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Parra ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, and seasonal owners will want to note he is beginning to sit regularly against left-handed pitchers. Alvarez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has 19 career plate appearances and should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief Monday.

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 9. OF Dariel Alvarez draws into the lineup and is batting ninth against SP CC Sabathia Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: This is the second consecutive game Jones ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has missed after leaving early with shoulder soreness Monday, Sept. 7. Sitting Wednesday allows Jones to have three days of rest with no game on the schedule for Baltimore Thursday, Sept. 10. Alvarez has just 13 plate appearances in his career, and he projects as nothing more than a desperation flier for daily contests Wednesday.

Orioles | Chris Davis unlikely to play right field

Sun, 28 Dec 2014 11:43:20 -0800

Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis is a long-shot candidate to be moved to right field for the upcoming season. Alejandro De Aza and Steve Pearce are currently projected to be the team's starting corner outfielders, with Dariel Alvarez, David Lough and Henry Urrutia also in the mix. If Davis is moved to right field, Pearce and Christian Walker would likely to split time at first base.
