On the same day Jose Tabata was called up, Alvarez was a single shy of hitting for the cycle Wednesday afternoon going 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI’s.
Thursday night against Pawtuket, Alvarez picked up where he left off, adding two more hits, going 2-for-3 with a run scored and a walk in the Indians 2-1 win.
In his last 10 games Alvarez is batting over .400 (16-for-36).
