Jose Alvarado earns another win in relief Sunday

Phillies reliever Jose Alvarado walked one over a scoreless eighth inning to earn the win on Sunday against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Impact

Through five appearances, Alvarado is 2-0 with one save, a 1.93 ERA, and nine strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings. He is firmly entrenched in a setup role for the Phillies and will likely be the first call for the ninth inning on days where closer Hector Neris is unavailable, especially with Archie Bradley landing on the injured list recently.

Jose Alvarado earns save with Hector Neris unavailable Monday

Phillies reliever Jose Alvarado allowed one earned run on three hits while striking out two over an inning of work to convert the save in Monday's win over the New York Mets.

Fantasy Impact

Neris is still the closer in Philadelphia, but it is at least noteworthy that Alvarado got the call for the ninth inning on Monday over Archie Bradley. He is unlikely to see many save opportunities unless Neris is injured or falters, but Alvarado has value in leagues that reward for holds, especially with his ability to generate strikeouts.

Jose Alvarado avoids arbitration with Phillies

The Phillies and LHP Jose Alvarado avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Alvarado was acquired by the Phillies this offseason. He'll aim to improve their bullpen along with recent addition Archie Bradley.

Jose Alvarado traded to Phillies as part of a three-team deal

The Phillies have acquired LHP Jose Alvarado as part of a three-team trade with the Rays and Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Tampa Bay is receiving Dodgers' first base prospect Dillon Paulson and a player-to-be-named later. LA is receiving Phillies LHP Garrett Cleavinger. Alvarado was downright dominant during 2018, but he has struggled with injuries and ineffectiveness over the past two seasons. Philadelphia is willing to take a flyer on him as they reshape their 'pen.

Jose Alvarado left off Rays' World Series roster

Rays LHP Jose Alvarado was left off the team's World Series roster.

Fantasy Impact

Alvarado was activated off the IL prior to the ALCS against the Astros. The big lefty made two appearances but apparently didn't show enough to make the cut for the World Series. Ryan Sherriff, a fellot lefty, is essentially replacing him.
