No Need to Platoon Alvarez

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Should Wilson Alvarez end up in the bullpen this season, remember this comment by Dodger manager Jim Tracy (from The Associated Press):

"I've never seen as many right-handed hitters (s)wing and miss on a left-hander as I do with Wilson Alvarez," Tracy said.

The stats back it up. Over the past three seasons, in more than 900 plate appearances, opposing right-handed batters have a .644 OPS against Alvarez. Alvarez should not be limited to facing left-handed batters.

(By the way, I do like "wing and miss," as the AP article puts it.)
