Comments on: Pirates Notebook: Alvarez and Lincoln promoted Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

He has been playing really well down there along with Huber at first. But, I am really fond of D'Arnaud.

Alvarez getting promoted caught me off-guard. I wasn't expecting him to get called up for a while still.

As far as Dubee is concerned…this promotion is about a month too late.

And I also don't know why Owens is still at West Virginia. The man has retired 39 of the last 40 batters he's faced.
