Alvarez has made only one start this season in nine total appearances -- that was May 25 vs. the Giants -- he got pounded for six earned runs in three innings.
He's allowed more homers (three) than walks (two).
Just the kind of pitcher who gives the Cubs fits.
The twilight (5:10 pm PT) start ought to make it tough on the hitters in the early innings -- maybe advantage Maddux, who likes to paint the corners.
