Dariel Alvarez went 0-for-3 on Saturday and is 1-for-10 so far this spring.

The Orioles seemed quite a bit higher on Alvarez a year ago than they are now, but the opportunity is there to claim some playing time in an outfield corner if he excels this spring. So far, the early results aren't promising.

Dariel Alvarez won't play in the Orioles' weekend series against the Blue Jays due to visa issues.

Alvarez has not gotten his U.S. work visa finalized, so if he were to accompany the O's north of the border he wouldn't be allowed back into the country following the series. The team will likely instead option him to the minors for the series and recall a position player in his absence. Alvarez, 26, should see some time in the Orioles' outfield down the stretch.
