The Baltimore Orioles signed 29-year old lefty swinging DH/1B/3B Pedro Alvarez this spring to a 1-year, $5.75 million dollar deal late in free agency to provide them with power. From 2012-2015, Alvarez averaged 27.8 homers and 79.5 RBIs per season for the Pittsburgh Pirates. But, he has shown none of that kind of power so far this year. Alvarez has played in 15 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 8 for 44 (.182 avg, .558 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 0 homers, 1 RBI and 1 stolen base. The Orioles aren’t going to wait forever for Alvarez to start hitting….so he needs to start showing them something soon.
