With Camp Coming, Alvarez's Arrival Uncertain
For almost three weeks now, the Washington Nationals have known their prized Dominican prospect is Carlos Alvarez, 23, not Esmailyn Gonzalez, 19. But they still don't know when he'll be arriving in Florida.
Though Nationals are set to begin minor league camp tomorrow -- position players must report by March 13 -- the team is still uncertain about Alvarez's availability, and acting general manager Mike Rizzo said that the Alvarez is not expected to immediately be in camp. According to Rizzo, Alvarez is having visa issues.
Pitchers and catchers report to minor league spring training tomorrow, and have their first workout on Wednesday.
The first full-team workout for the minor leaguers is one week from now.
