Starting Pitchers:

Jose Alvarez, Tigers - Alvarez made his second start of the season on Thursday against the Red Sox and gave up two earned runs over five innings with three strikeouts and two walks. It wasn't the lights out performance he gave in his debut earlier this month against the Indians, but it was encouraging nonetheless. He's currently filling in for Anibal Sanchez, who is out with a shoulder injury that is not considered serious. Because Alvarez's stay in the majors figures to be a short one, his value is limited. Still, he makes for an intriguing bid in keeper leagues as he has posted a 2.78 ERA with 84 strikeouts and 16 walks over 81 innings this season at Triple-A Toledo. This week he faces the Angels at home. Mixed: $1; AL: $3.
