Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez homers twice vs. Phillies

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/30/15) Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez went 2 for 4 with a walk, two home runs and six RBI in Monday's 18-4 win over the Phillies.

Alvarez smacked a two-run home run in the fifth inning before coming back with a grand slam in the eighth. He has hit .325 with four home runs in 40 at-bats this spring and said after the outing that spring stats "don't count, but they do matter," per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Pirates Pedro Alvarez looking to stick at first base

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/28/15) Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez is hoping to stick at his new position after converting from third base, reports triblive.com.

On opening day, Alvarez will be the team's 54th first baseman in its 129-year history.

“It's a matter of getting used to seeing the field from that point of view,” Alvarez said. “I need to get the reps in so the responsibilities that come with playing that position become second nature to me.”

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington talked about the team's past efforts of platooning the position.

“You can't develop something you don't have. You can't buy something you can't afford,” general manager Neal Huntington said. “That's why we've tried to platoon. Over the last couple of years, we've realized that's a challenge for a National League manager. Platoons are much harder here than they are in the American League, especially with a one-dimensional player who can only play one position.”

The hope around the organization is that they can get quality production from Alvarez.

“Our hope that is between Pedro Alvarez and Corey Hart, we'll get quality major league production,” Huntington said.

The 28-year-old is batting .306 with two home runs, nine RBI and eight strikeouts this spring.

Pirates Pedro Alvarez experimenting with new stance

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/21/15) The Pirates are making an adjustment to infielder Pedro Alvarez's stance to help improve his offensive output. 

Working with hitting coach Jeff Branson, Alvarez is resting his bat on his shoulder before starting his swing, instead of holding it off the shoulder. 

“We're trying to ... figure out ways to get him relaxed at the plate and take the tension out of him at the plate,” Jeff Branson said, per Travis Sawchik of Trib Total Media. “You'll see him start on the shoulder and take it off when he's ready to hit."

It seems to be working. Alvarez is hitting .381 this spring, with two home runs and eight RBI. 

Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez returns from elbow injury Thursday

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/15) Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez returned to the spring lineup Thursday against the Red Sox after missing a few days due to a hyperextended elbow. He was hitless in two at-bats.

Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez (elbow) expected back Thursday

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/15) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said first baseman Pedro Alvarez (elbow) is expected to return to game action Thursday against the Red Sox, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"Pedro was given a very aggressive workout today and the reports came back that he's fine and ready to go," Hurdle said.
