2015

2014

Alvarez made his major league debut in 2013, making 14 appearances while splitting time between the Tigers’ rotation and bullpen. The 25-year-old southpaw failed to impress, finishing the season 1-5 with a 5.82 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 31:16 K:BB ratio in 38.2 innings. Despite the rocky debut in the majors, Alvarez flashed potential while pitching for Triple-A Toledo last season. In 21 appearances (20 starts) for the Mud Hens, Alvarez went 8-6 with a 2.80 ERA and 115:25 K:BB ratio over 128.2 innings. With a fastball that typically sits in the high-80s to low-90s range, Alvarez doesn’t overpower hitters, but he’s shown the ability to mix four additional above-average pitches (cutter, changeup, curveball and slider) to keep hitters off balance. The Tigers' rotation is full heading into 2014, which should earmark Alvarez for a spot as a lefty specialist and/or long man out of the bullpen, but he is one step closer to the rotation after Detroit traded Doug Fister to Washington in December.
