Anthony Alford Undergoes Surgery

The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced that outfielder Anthony Alford underwent right elbow surgery on Tuesday to repair a fractured olecranon (elbow).

The Pirates said that Alford is projected to participate in full baseball activities in Spring Training 2021.

Due to the lack of outfield depth, especially in center field, I’d give Alford a strong chance of making the team in 2021. At the very least, he should get a legitimate shot at sticking with the club until Spring Training, and being one of the guys with an inside track for a roster spot.
