Dominican player of the week: Pedro Alvarez

The Pirates are gravitating back toward their below .500 normal winning percentage after a stellar start to the year in which they looked like playoff material. They went 2-4 last week. But just because the team does badly, that does not mean that one of their players cannot be the player of the week.

Dominican player Pedro Alvarez won the National League Player of the Week award, and by default that also makes him the Dominican Baseball Guy Player of the Week. This is his second career NL Player of the Week Award and second time he has won the Dominican Baseball Guy Player of the Week award. He also won the Dominican Player of the Week award back in May of this year.

This week, Alvarez went 11 for 24 (.458) in the week that ended Sunday. He hit four home runs, two doubles and drove in eight runs.

The former Rookie of the Year winner, Alvarez is from Santo Domingo, Republica Dominicana.
