Player Notes
The Pirates plan to play Pedro Alvarez every day at first base next season rather than pair him with a right-handed hitting platoon partner.

Advice: "We're going to find out," manager Clint Hurdle said when asked if Alvarez will be able to hit left-handed pitching. "It's going to be Pedro's job to keep. Pedro knows what challenges he's got to meet. He loves his teammates, he wants to do well and perform well. He's taken on some necessary opportunities this winter to prepare and get ready." Alvarez has batted just .196/.267/.321 versus southpaws during his career, which includes a .175/.241/.263 line last season. It remains to be seen whether the Pirates will stick to their plan to play Alvarez every day if he continues to struggle against lefties.

Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Marlins have expressed "some level of interest" in Pirates corner infielder Pedro Alvarez.

Advice: Alvarez had a miserable 2014, batting just .231/.312/.405 with 18 home runs and 56 RBI in 122 games. He had 36 home runs and 100 RBI in 2013. The 27-year-old is also a very poor defender at third base.
