Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Pedro Alvarez is on the Red Sox's radar.
Heyman says that Boston is "favoring a short-term deal" as they look to fill David Ortiz's vacated designated hitter spot, so they appear likelier to sign an Alvarez, Matt Holliday or Mike Napoli rather than an Edwin Encarnacion. Alvarez batted .249/.322/.504 with 22 homers over just 376 plate appearances for the Orioles this past season. Dec 4 - 1:42 PM

Alvarez drove Michael Pineda from the game with his fifth-inning RBI double. The two-bagger was his 17th of the season. In addition, the 29-year-old slugger is slashing .256/.316/.515 with 20 homers and 46 RBI over 297 at-bats.

Pedro Alvarez blasted a pair of solo home runs on Friday, powering the Orioles to a 7-5 victory over the White Sox in Chicago.

Alvarez opened the game's scoring with a solo shot to center field off of Miguel Gonzalez in the second inning. He added a no-doubter to right field in the eighth inning off Tommy Kahnle to increase the O's advantage to 5-2. He was signed late in the offseason to provide power in the bottom of the O's lineup, and Alvarez has certainly obliged, slashing .262/.317/.540 with 18 homers and 38 RBI.

Pedro Alvarez went 3-for-4 with a home run in a loss to the Rangers on Thursday.

Alvarez followed a Mark Trumbo solo homer with one of his own in the fifth inning. Nobody is hotter than the 29-year-old these days -- Alvarez has four multi-hit games in his last six contests, including four home runs in his last four. After a slow start, Alvarez is hitting .259/.315/.517 with 16 home runs and 36 RBI overall.

Pedro Alvarez ripped a pair of solo home runs in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

Both dingers came off of Yu Darvish. Alvarez has provided his usual inconsistency this season, but he now has 15 home runs and is slugging .500, so he's pretty much provided what the Orioles could've hoped for. He's gone deep three times over his last three games.
Aug 2 - 10:14 PM

Pedro Alvarez clubbed a solo home run on Saturday, accounting for the Orioles' lone run in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Alvarez took advantage of a mistake that J.A. Happ made on an 0-2 pitch and pummeled it into the seats in right field. The left-handed slugger finished the afternoon 1-for-4 and is now hitting .249/.306/.480 with 13 homers and 32 RBI on the season.
Jul 30 - 4:25 PM

Pedro Alvarez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Alvarez connected for a solo shot off Rays starter Jake Odorizzi in the sixth inning. That would be the last run the O's scored in the 5-2 loss. For the season, the 29-year-old slugger is slashing .254/.322/.497 with 11 homers and 29 RBI across 181 at-bats. He has homered in each of his last two starts (Alvarez is not utilized as an everyday player) and has doubled in three of his last five. After a dreadful open to the 2016 campaign, Alvarez has turned himself into a respectable bench option for deeper AL-only formats, though he doesn't play enough at this point to rise above "respectable bench option."
Jul 17 - 4:45 PM

Pedro Alvarez hit his 10th home run on Friday, finishing 2-4 with two RBI and a run scored.

In addition to the longball, Alvarez drove in J.J. Hardy with an RBI double in the fifth inning. He hasn't received a ton of playing time, but has hit well when given the chance. He now has a .254/.323/.486 line in 177 at-bats.

Alvarez went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored on the afternoon. After a miserable start to the season, the 29-year-old has turned things around by batting .315 (17-for-54) with six homers and 15 RBI this month. The batting average won’t last, but he’s in a great spot for his power to shine.
