Top Eddy Alvarez News

  • Red Sox's Eddy Alvarez: Finds home in Boston

    Alvarez signed a minor-league deal with the Red Sox on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The 33-year-old utility infielder will report to Triple-A Worcester as he begins his tenure in the Red Sox organization. Milwaukee cut Alvarez loose over the All-Star break after he slashed .283/.397/.473 with seven home runs and 16 stolen bases across 257 plate appearances at Triple-A Nashville.

  • Eddy Alvarez: Released by Brewers

    The Brewers released Alvarez on Thursday.

    Due to a congested roster at Triple-A Nashville, Alvarez was pushed off the squad despite posting a .283/.397/.473 slash line through 257 plate appearances. His impressive stats should be enough to get him a minor-league deal from another organization, though his lackluster MLB history marks him purely as organizational depth.

  • Brewers' Eddy Alvarez: Reassigned to minors camp

    Alvarez was reassigned Tuesday to the minor-league side of Brewers camp, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Skye Bolt, Andruw Monasterio, Jon Singleton and Josh VanMeter were also reassigned in this round of cuts from major-league camp in Arizona. Alvarez inked a minor-league contract with Milwaukee in December. He carries a career .183 batting average and .524 OPS in 142 plate appearances at baseball's highest level.

  • Brewers' Eddy Alvarez: Invited to Brewers camp

    Alvarez signed a minor-league with the Brewers on Saturday which includes an invitation to spring training, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The former Olympic speed skater has spent time in the big leagues in each of the last three seasons, but he hasn't made a meaningful impact in any of them. Alvarez has played 50 total major-league games, hitting .183/.262/.262 with one home run and four steals. If he sees any big-league time in his age-33 season, the results will likely be similar.

  • Eddy Alvarez: Cut loose by L.A.

    The Dodgers released Alvarez (undisclosed) on Monday.

    Los Angeles elected to move on from Alvarez after designating him for assignment last week. He was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on July 3 but was shut down with an injury less than two weeks later and hasn't played since. Alvarez will likely turn his focus to recovering from his injury before looking to catch on with another organization on a minor-league deal ahead of the 2023 season.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Moves off 40-man roster

    The Dodgers designated Alvarez for assignment Tuesday.

    The transaction clears a 40-man roster spot for reliever Heath Hembree, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Oklahoma City in advance of Tuesday's contest with the Mets. After being demoted to Triple-A on July 3, the 32-year-old Alvarez appeared in just four games before landing on Oklahoma City's 7-day injured list due to an unspecified issue. He hasn't played since July 12 and is without a clear timeline for returning to action at Triple-A.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Optioned to minors

    Alvarez was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.

    Alvarez got into 14 games in June, but he slashed a meager .160/.154/.314 while registering a 33.3 percent strikeout rate over 27 plate appearances. He logged much of his time in the outfield while with the Dodgers, and his opportunity there was likely to end with Mookie Betts (ribs) returning from the injured list Sunday. Alvarez had also lost time recently to Trayce Thompson, who has played well since being acquired by the Dodgers on June 20.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Remains out of lineup

    Alvarez isn't starting Monday's game against the Rockies, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Alvarez went 0-for-2 with a strikeout in Sunday's win over Atlanta and will retreat to the bench for the fourth time in the last five games. Trayce Thompson is starting in right field and batting ninth and appears to have usurped Alvarez as the Dodgers' preferred option at the position while Mookie Betts (rib) is on the injured list.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Still not starting

    Alvarez isn't in the lineup Saturday against Atlanta, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Alvarez drew three consecutive starts for the Dodgers this week but has lost out on playing time recently. He'll be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game while Trayce Thompson starts in right field and bats sixth.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Still not starting Friday

    Alvarez isn't starting Friday's game against Atlanta, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Alvarez went 1-for-8 with a run, a stolen base and four strikeouts over his last three games and will be held out of the starting nine for a second consecutive matchup. Trayce Thompson is starting in right field and batting ninth.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: On bench Thursday

    Alvarez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Reds, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Alvarez had started the past three games in right field in place of the injured Mookie Betts (rib), going 1-for-8 with a run scored and a stolen base. The Dodgers are still expected to deploy Alvarez as their primary option in right field, but with manager Dave Roberts wanting to give Will Smith a day off behind the plate, there won't be room in the lineup for Alvarez. With Smith serving as the Dodgers' designated hitter, Austin Barnes will pick up a start at catcher while Chris Taylor fills Alvarez's spot in the outfield.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Makes third straight start

    Alvarez will start in right field and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Reds, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Following Mookie Betts' (rib) placement on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Alvarez will pick up his third consecutive start in right field. At least for the time being, the Dodgers appear content to lean on the switch-hitting Alvarez to handle the strong-side of a platoon in right field, though he could give way to Trayce Thompson against left-handed pitching.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Swipes bag Sunday

    Alvarez went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Guardians.

    Alvarez got the nod in right field, which could be a semi-regular occurrence as long as Mookie Betts (ribs) is on the injured list. In the seventh inning, Alvarez singled, stole second and scored the Dodgers' last run of the game. The 32-year-old switch hitter is 3-for-15 (.200) with no extra-base hits, one RBI and one run scored in nine contests this season. He'll compete with Zach McKinstry to fill the lineup spot left behind by Betts' absence.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Gets nod in place of Betts

    Alvarez will start in right field and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Guardians.

    Alvarez will pick up his second start in third games, and he looks like he could get the chance to play on a near-everyday basis after Mookie Betts was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a fractured rib, an injury manager Dave Roberts suspects will sideline the star outfielder for about two weeks, per Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register. In addition to Alvarez, the newly recalled Zach McKinstry as well as reserve catcher Austin Barnes could also be beneficiaries of more playing time as the Dodgers look to fill the lineup spot vacated by Betts. Alvarez brings good speed to the outfield, but he owns a .251 wOBA over 126 career big-league plate appearances.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Gets third straight start

    Alvarez will serve as the Dodgers' designated hitter and No. 8 hitter in Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Alvarez will pick up his third consecutive start after going 2-for-6 with an RBI in his first two turns in the lineup. The Dodgers have an opening in the lineup with both Max Muncy (elbow) and Edwin Rios (hamstring) on the injured list, but Alvarez's run as a regular is expected to be short-lived. Muncy started a rehab assignment June 4 and looks like he'll be ready to go for this weekend's series in San Francisco.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Contract selected by Dodgers

    Alvarez's contract was selected from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    He has played shortstop, second base and left field at Triple-A and is hitting .304/.430/.500 with five home runs and three steals in 43 games. This move gives the Dodgers some infield depth following Edwin Rios landing on the injured list with a hamstring tear. Alvarez has minor-league options left, so he could be sent back to Triple-A once Max Muncy (elbow) is activated.

  • Dodgers' Eddy Alvarez: Unlikely to break camp with Dodgers

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Alvarez isn't expected to be on the team's Opening Day roster, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.

    Alvarez has made a case for a roster spot with a strong spring during which he has slashed .375/.444/.792 with three home runs and six RBI over 12 games. However, it isn't clear where the veteran infielder might fit on a loaded Dodgers roster. It's unclear whether Friday's trade in which Los Angeles acquired Craig Kimbrel for AJ Pollock will impact Alvarez's prospects for a roster spot; as it stands, the primary beneficiary of playing time as a result of the move is likely to be Gavin Lux, who is tentatively slated to be the team's primary second baseman.
