Alvarez signed a one-year, $2.95 million contract with Philadelphia on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Alvarez posted a 3.36 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with 51 punchouts and 16 holds across 59 relief innings during the 2019 campaign. He'll be in line for a set-up role once again in 2020.
