BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Minor league lifer Carlos Alvarado had a solid year at Triple-A, but that still wasn't enough to get him a big-league look.
2007 A survivor, Carlos Alvarado washed out of the Pirates` organization, marked time in the Central, Atlantic, and Mexican leagues, and has now resurfaced as a greybeard in the Reds system. You have to admire the commitment, and he also has decent stuff.
