PITTSBURGH (KDKA 93-7 The Fan)- Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez took some reps at first base during batting practice Friday.
Pirates Broadcaster John Wehner told Colin Dunlap on Bucco Talk that he thinks Alvarez will be fine.
“There is some footwork differences as far as starting the double play,” Wehner said. “Pedro doesn’t have the greatest first step at third base. You don’t have to have a great first step at first base.”
