  • Jose Alvarado Records Second Save Of Season

    Headshot for Jose Alvarado

    Philadephia Phillies left-hander Jose Alvarado allowed one walk while striking out one over a scoreless inning to earn the save in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Washington Nationals. Alvarado needed 28 pitches to get through Washington's order to collect his second save of the season. After surrendering five runs on Opening Day, Alvarado has not allowed a run in his last four appearances. The 28-year-old owns a 9.64 ERA, 1.71 WHIP, and six strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings in 2024. Alvarado has been the favorite to handle ninth-inning duties for the Phillies, and fantasy managers should continue to roll with him in all leagues.

  • Jose Alvarado Bounces Back With Save On Sunday

    Headshot for Jose Alvarado

    Philadelphia Phillies reliever Jose Alvarado picked up his first save of the season by tossing a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves. It was a nice bounce-back performance for the veteran after he was shelled for five runs in his first appearance. Alvarado will have a couple spotty outings along the way, but he should receive the bulk of the save opportunities out of the Phillies bullpen. The 28-year-old should be rostered in all formats unless the wheels truly fall off.

  • Jose Alvarado Hit Around On Friday

    Headshot for Jose Alvarado

    Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Jose Alvarado put together a horrendous outing during Friday's season opener versus the Atlanta Braves. The left-hander was smacked around for five runs on three hits and a pair of walks in just 2/3 of an inning. This sucks to see for Phillies fans after starter Zack Wheeler threw six shutout innings. After that, right-hander Jeff Hoffman gave up a pair of runs which tied the game. Phillies manager Rob Thompson turned to Alvarado after that and he couldn't hold his own. Despite this awful outing, Alvarado should still be in the mix for saves in Philly this season.

  • Offseason In Review: Philadelphia Phillies

    Headshot for Kolby Allard

    The Phillies reinforced their rotation with a major extension and a major re-signing, but it was otherwise a relatively quiet offseason in the City of Brotherly Love.  After making the NLCS last year, have the Phillies done enough to book a return to the World Series? Major League Signings Aaron Nola, SP: Seven years, $172MM…

  • Jose Alvarado Looking Fine In Early Action

    Headshot for Jose Alvarado

    Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Jose Alvarado has a 3.00 ERA with two strikeouts in three innings pitched of Grapefruit League action so far this spring. The 28-year-old flamethrower is currently penciled in for the closer's role, but fantasy managers may be a little apprehensive given how the Phillies treated their bullpen last season. The good news is that Alvarado appears healthy, as he spent a bunch of time on the injured list last season due to inflammation in his left elbow. He did put forth a stellar 1.74 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 37.2% strikeout rate in 41 1/3 innings pitched with 10 saves, so he should have an opportunity to seize the closer's role to start 2024.
