Philadelphia will give him a couple of starts before returning to the Big Top

As planned since last week, José Alvarado begins the rehabilitation phase this Saturday at the Triple-A branch of the Philadelphia Phillies, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, where he is expected to take the necessary rhythm to condition the left arm (in which he suffered from inflammation in the elbow since mid-May).

As reported by several media outlets that closely follow the activity of the National League East Division champion who won in 2022, the Maracaibo native will be facing batters in the 6:35 p.m. game against the RailRiders of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (affiliate of the New York Yankees in AAA) at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Alvarado will have fellow Venezuelan player Simón Muzziotti as a teammate in the Lehigh Valley for a few dates, who is the best hitter in that category in the Minors with a .358 average, three home runs and 26 RBIs.

The Phillies' star pitcher will work at least two starts with this squad and from that moment on, manager Rob Thomson will determine when the Marabino left-hander will immediately report to the 26-player roster to help his colleagues in the rest of the season. regular round 2023.
