Excellent workmanlike win.

32-14 now.

Imagine when we have one more high-leverage RH to complement the very very good Alvarado, Hoffman, Strahm & Kerkering.

Is there a different Alvarado on the team other than the one I saw last night?

Alvarado has been good, but rarely great, so far this year.
No reason yet to think it's going to be a problem. He's probably going to need to have his workload managed more than some of the other relievers.
Obviously, if he's still struggling with walks & velocity right at the July trade deadline, you might approach the thinking differently.
