Most places have the Dodgers' rotation as Nomo, Perez, Weaver, Ishii, and Edwin Jackson. But if the Dodgers deal pitching to get power in their lineup, Alvarez is standing by, ready to go into the rotation.
Take it for what it's worth, but in the SportsWeekly Fantasy Guide that came out yesterday, they have Alvarez tied for 26th among NL pitchers, with a $14 value. They project 160 IP, 8 wins, a 3.23 ERA, and a 1.19 WHIP. That ERA is 7th in the NL among pitchers with more than 150 innings, and the WHIP is tied for 6th in the NL.
He pitched strong toward the end of 2003, so watch carefully the Dodgers' moves. There might be a real sleeper here.
