Phillies acquired LHP Jose Alvarez from the Angels for RHP Luis Garcia.December 06, 2018 | 07:07 PM
Alvarez was one of the better and more consistent relievers for the Angels last year, posting a 2.71 ERA and 59/22 K/BB ratio over 63 innings in 76 games. He was effective against left-handed and right-handed hitters in 2018, with both groups posting an OPS below .624. He should operate in the middle-innings for the Phillies, but the southpaw could move into a high-leverage role if he pitches well this spring and to start the season.
