Player Notes
According to ESPN's Jayson Stark, the Pirates are telling teams they're likely to keep Pedro Alvarez.

Advice: That could be a negotiating tactic, as CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported just days ago that the first baseman is on the trade block. Alvarez has a rough .232 batting average and .301 on-base percentage in 90 games this season, though he does lead the Pirates with 14 home runs. The 28-year-old will be arbitration-eligible one final time this winter.

Pedro Alvarez slugged a two-run homer against the Nationals on Friday.

Advice: The blast traveled an estimated 439 feet into the Allegheny River. Alvarez has now gone deep in back-to-back games. The Pirates are reportedly shopping him, but he leads the team with 14 home runs.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Pirates have put Pedro Alvarez on the trade block.

Advice: It confirms an earlier report from Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the club was fielding offers for the first baseman. Alvarez's defense has been awful this season and he's batting just .232/.302/.424 with 13 homers. He'll also get more expensive over the winter in his final year of arbitration, and the Pirates have decided to try and upgrade at first base now. It's unclear at this point who might be interested in Alvarez.

After sitting out two of the previous four games, Pedro Alvarez started Thursday and delivered a homer and an RBI groundout.

Advice: It wouldn't be notable that Alvarez sat out a couple of games, except these were both against right-handers. Between the mediocre offense and the worse-than-mediocre defense, the Pirates are looking to do better at first base, and they might consider playing Aramis Ramirez there after Josh Harrison returns.

Thu, Jul 23 Rotoworld
Pedro Alvarez is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

Advice: Alvarez is down to .230/.298/.419 for the season and has struggled defensively, which has some thinking the Pirates could pursue a first baseman at the trade deadline. Travis Ishikawa is filling in for him on Sunday.
