Last night coming off an injury he did not miss a beat. He drove in Roman Quinn in the first inning with a base hit up the middle. Watch and Read HERE. He would go 3 for 4 with a double in the Reading’s 5-3 win over the Binghamton Mets.
The only problem Alfaro has had is the injury bug. He was rehabbing in the Gulf Coast League and Fall Instructs after being acquired last season in the Cole Hamels trade with Texas.
Already this season he had to miss three weeks because of a right oblique strain. Last season he was rehabbing with an ankle injury.
But he has not missed a beat. So far this season he is hitting .468 with a 1.168 OPS. He is slashing at .468/.490/.702 with a homer and 12 RBIs in 12 games. He has thrown out 3 of 9 base stealers with Reading.
