Player Profile: Jimmy Alvarez

I have one card of Jimmy Alvarez, from 2002 Topps Traded.

Playing career: Shortstop Jimmy Alvarez played eight seasons in the Twins, Blue Jays and Red Sox organizations. In 725 games he hit .255 with 36 HR, 281 RBI and 114 SB.

Where he is now: Manager of the Twins’ Dominican Summer League team.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is second when you type Jimmy Alv, between Jimmy Iovine, a record producer, and Jimmy Alvarado, a punk musician. There are no entries for the ballplayer on the first page of Google results; the first entry is for a fashion photographer.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Keto Anderson.
