The Pirates plan to play Pedro Alvarez every day at first base next season rather than pair him with a right-handed hitting platoon partner.
"We're going to find out," manager Clint Hurdle said when asked if Alvarez will be able to hit left-handed pitching. "It's going to be Pedro's job to keep. Pedro knows what challenges he's got to meet. He loves his teammates, he wants to do well and perform well. He's taken on some necessary opportunities this winter to prepare and get ready." Alvarez has batted just .196/.267/.321 versus southpaws during his career, which includes a .175/.241/.263 line last season. It remains to be seen whether the Pirates will stick to their plan to play Alvarez every day if he continues to struggle against lefties. Dec 14 - 10:09 AM
