Alvarez Optioned to Indy

Numerous tweets from several sources have indicated that Pedro Alvarez has been activated from the disabled list and optioned to Indianapolis.

This would indicate that Pirates management has determined that Pedro is not ready to contribute at the major league level. At least not at the present time.

Neal Huntington was quoted as saying, "Pedro remains a big part of our future, but we believe this move is the best way to get him back on track."

After the euphoria of last night's win, this may have been viewed as the correct time to send Pedro to Indy with a minimum of fan backlash.
