|Pedro Alvarez dealing with stress reaction in foot |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/10/14) Pirates first baseman Pedro Alvarez is dealing with a stress reaction in his foot.
Alvarez will be sidelined four to six weeks due to the injury, effectively ending his season. He's hitting .231/.312/.405 over 398 at-bats.
|Pedro Alvarez not progressing |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/8/14) According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez has suffered a setback in his recovery from a sprained left foot, leaving the Pirates to reassess his status. As of now, he continues to travel with the team, but he may need to be re-evaluated at some point.
"The initial diagnostic tests gave us reason to move forward as we did," general manager Neal Huntington said. "He's feeling more pain. He's not progressing the way he was before the pinch-hit at-bat. As a result, we need to re-evaluate things and see where we go from there."
Alvarez's status for the rest of the season is at this point unknown.

|Pedro Alvarez, Travis Snider still absent from Pirates lineup |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(9/5/14) Third baseman Pedro Alvarez (foot) and outfielder Travis Snider (hamstring) remain out of the lineup Friday for the Pirates against the host Cubs.
The former has been sidelined since Aug. 26. The latter has not started a game since a day later, though he did pinch-hit twice, including on Wednesday.
|Travis Snider, Pedro Alvarez still out Tuesday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/2/14) Pirates outfielder Travis Snider (hamstring) and infielder Pedro Alvarez (foot) remained out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Cardinals, as they remain sidelined by their injuries. Snider has missed five games as a result of his injury, while Tuesday will be Alvarez's sixth straight start missed.
|On the surface, Pedro Alvarez was about the same player in 2013 that he was in 2012, but the key difference was that he was much more consistent the second time around. While in 2012, 20 of his 30 homers were confined to two one-month periods from mid-April to mid-May and mid-June to mid-July, he never went too long without a home run in 2013. That may not make much of a difference in Rotisserie leagues, other than to verify that his 30-homer breakout wasn't just the result of two insane hot streaks, but it does matter to Head-to-Head owners, who are now comfortable starting him from week to week. Well ... relatively speaking, anyway. Alvarez still has major drawbacks -- most obviously, his penchant for swinging and missing, which keeps his batting average in the pits. He's the quintessential all-or-nothing slugger, even more so than Jay Bruce or Mark Trumbo. Still, as weak as third base is shaping up to be, you won't do much better than Alvarez after the Ryan Zimmerman, Josh Donaldson and Martin Prado types go off the board. And in Rotisserie leagues, you won't find a sure 30 homers any later in the draft.
