Pirates Promote Pedro Alvarez

New, comments

The Pirates have promoted Pedro Alvarez, Colin Dunlap reports, so we should see him tomorrow.

More on Alvarez, from yesterday, can be found here. In short, I wasn't exactly chomping at the bit to see him promoted, but this should be a lot of fun. He probably won't hit for much of an average right away, and he sometimes takes awhile to adjust before he thrives at a new level, but he instantly becomes one of the Pirates' three most productive hitters. Which obviously isn't saying a whole lot, but he'll clearly be a nice boost to the offense.

Someone will have to be cleared from the 40-man roster to make room--Akinori Iwamura, probably?
