Player Notes
Pirates manager Clint Hurdle indicated Tuesday that Pedro Alvarez is unlikely to play third base again this season unless he's needed in an emergency.

Advice: Alvarez made his first start at first base on Monday but was back on the bench Tuesday. He's expected to share time with Ike Davis and Gaby Sanchez, which means his fantasy value is nearing non-existent at this point. "Right now, I think we have a better option in Josh Harrison," Hurdle said. "This season, right now -- to put the best team that I can on the field every night, we have better options. We have to find [Alvarez] some at-bats. Is third base the optimum place to get them? No, it is not."

Pedro Alvarez will make his first major league start at first base on Monday against the Braves.

Advice: Alvarez's throwing has been an issue all season long at third base, so the Pirates have been working with him over the past week or so to prepare him for a move across the diamond. He'll get his first test Monday and could cut into the playing time for Ike Davis the rest of the way.

DHing for the second straight day, Pedro Alvarez went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts against the Tigers on Thursday.

Advice: Alvarez is 1-for-8 with five strikeouts since returning to the lineup yesterday. Overall, he's 2-for-18 with nine strikeouts this month. The Pirates have said that Alvarez is about ready to play first base, but he hasn't done anything lately to suggest that he'll be an upgrade. Ike Davis currently has an .853 OPS since the All-Star break, while Alvarez is at .429 in 41 at-bats.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Monday that Pedro Alvarez is close to making his debut at first base.

Advice: Alvarez has struggled with his throwing at third base all season, so the Pirates are now trying to get him acclimated at first base. He's currently taking lessons every day before batting practice. "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." While Alvarez is getting close to his first game action at the position, it's unlikely to happen before this weekend.
