Marlins “Lukewarm” On Dariel Alvarez

The Marlins are “lukewarm” at best on Cuban outfielder Dariel Alvarez, reports Juan C. Rodriguez of The Sun Sentinel. The team is unlikely to attend his showcase on January 5th.

Alvarez, 24, was officially declared a free agent by MLB earlier this month. The right-handed hitter defected last summer and is currently playing in the Vera Cruz winter league in Mexico, where he’s hitting .317/.335/.465 with three homers in 49 games.
