News: Alvarez is out of the lineup Monday against the Dodgers. Impact: Despite starting three straight games against lefties in the Colorado series, Alvarez continues to struggle against southpaws this season, posting a .186 batting average with just two of his 15 home runs. With left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu set to take the hill for the Dodgers, manager Clint Hurdle decided it was time for his third baseman to get a regular day off.(RotoWire, )

News: Alvarez committed his major league-leading 19th error Friday, the most of any player at any position. Washington shortstop Ian Desmond ranks second with 15 miscues. Impact: Alvarez's inability to make throws across the diamond is becoming comparable to the long-ago Steve Sax Disease. The error Friday started a Cincinnati comeback which eventually erased a 5-1 Pittsburgh lead. A move to first base seems like a possibility, but it likely wouldn't happen until the offseason.(RotoWire, )

News: Alvarez was 1-for-3 with a walk and a three-run homer in a losing cause against the Reds on Friday night. Impact: A .241 average isn't going to get many fantasy owners excited, but Alvarez continues to help in the counting stats with 15 long ones and 47 RBI. At this stage of his career it's likely to be "what you see is what you get," so enjoy the power numbers and hope they continue to come with men on base.(RotoWire, )
