Jose Alvarado activated off paternity list

The Rays activated LHP Jose Alvarado from the paternity list.

Fantasy Impact

As expected. Alvarado missed the past weekend's series against the Yankees due to the birth of child but he's ready to go moving forward. The 25-year-old could be a closing option for Tampa Bay with Oliver Drake on the IL right now.

Jose Alvarado strikes out two on Friday

Jose Alvarado threw a clean inning on Friday against Toronto, striking out two as the Rays lost to the Blue Jays 6-4.

Fantasy Impact

Alvarado had a disappointing year in 2019 but there's reason to think he could bounce back this year. The big lefty could even factor into closing duties here and there if the Rays want to play matchups.

Jose Alvarado feeling 100 percent at start of summer camp

Jose Alvarado told reporters on Saturday that he feels 100 percent.

Fantasy Impact

Alvarado did some throwing on Saturday and felt good. He dealt with a variety of issues last year and wound up posting a disappointing 4.80 ERA. However, there is reason to believe he can bounce back and become a dominant force in the Rays' bullpen again.

Jose Alvarado allows three baserunners on Friday

Jose Alvarado allowed one run on two hits and a walk in his inning of work on Friday afternoon versus the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

He has now given up three runs in 3 1/3 innings this spring. It is now what you want to see after the big lefty struggled mightily in 2019. There remains a chance he sees save chances if he reverts to his 2018 form, however.

Jose Alvarado throws a scoreless inning on Tuesday

Jose Alvarado tossed a scoreless inning in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game versus the Braves.

Fantasy Impact

He struck out two in the outing. The 24-year-old lefty has now given up two runs in 2 1/3 innings this spring. The 24-year-old was out of this world in 2018 before struggling mightily last year. If he gets his act together he could see save chances for Tampa Bay this season.
