Alvarez Off To Slow Start

Alvarez grabbed his first hit on Saturday – a double off the Indians’ David Huff – but he’s off to a slow start overall, as he’s now 1-for-13 with six strikeouts after five games, including 0-for-3 with an RBI today.

A quick start would have been better, of course, but this is nothing to worry about. Alvarez was slow out of the gate in both Class A and Class AAA as well. His first month or two might be rough, but he’s shown he’s capable of making adjustments.
