Athletics' R.J. Alvarez hoping to win a spot in the bullpen
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/24/15) Athletics pitcher R.J. Alvarez is hoping to win a spot in the team's bullpen this spring, according to the Bay Area News Group.
Alvarez was acquired by the club in the Derek Norris deal during the offseason, and is hoping to make an impact immediately. The A's currently have five spots open in the bullpen, and Alvarez believes he can fill one of those roles. "I’m aggressive and I’ll pitch that way all spring," he said. "But this is a good group competing here. It’s going to be a good bullpen, no matter who makes it. Just to have a chance is a great thing."
The 23-year-old posted a 1.25 ERA over three minor-league levels last year.
