Guardado).Via Twitter). This option comes with a $ 100,000 buyout, added by John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle (Via Twitter). The bonus counts as a luxury tax, but not as an option year. Therefore, Alvarez transactions need to count $ 1.16 million for this season’s luxury tax salary.
Left-handed Alvarez, who turns 32 in May, made his debut in the Tigers in 2013 and has been pitching to the Angels and Phillies ever since. Alvarez struggled to keep running off the board as a tiger, but it worked in Anaheim and Philadelphia. Overall, Alvarez recorded a good 3.59ERA / 3.85SIERA in the 3402/3 Major League innings, despite a strikeout rate of less than 20.8. He threw only 61/3 frames last year as a result of an inguinal injury, but he threw more than 50 innings four times a season.
If his agreement with San Francisco is passed, Alvarez could be part of a bullpen that is not short of southpaw. Jake McGee It was the biggest free agent acquisition of their rescue team, Jarlin Garcia, Sam Selman, Wandy Peralta And Caleb Barrager It is also on the Giants’ list of 40 people.
