Player Profile: R.J. Alvarez

I have one card of R.J. Alvarez, from 2013 Topps Pro Debut.

Playing career: Originally drafted by the Angels, R.J. Alvarez was sent to the Padres in the Huston Street trade, and made his major league debut in 2014, going 0-0 with a 1.13 ERA in ten relief appearances.

Where he is now: Involved in a mid-season deal for the second straight season, Alvarez was part of the package Oakland received from Derek Norris. In 21 games with the A’s, Alvarez went 0-0 with a 9.90 ERA.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type R.J. A, between R.J. Anderson, an author, and R.J. Archer, a quarterback in the Arena Football League. There do not appear to be any other prominent R.J. Alvarezes.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Phillippe Aumont.
