Chandler Rome speculates that stress over getting his parents and brother out of Cuba might have contributed to that funk at the plate during most of August…

Alvarez’s parents and brother attended their first game, a 4-2 win over the Twins, on Aug. 23. In the 30 that followed, Alvarez slashed .343/.436/.638, freeing himself from a late-season funk that some attributed to hand pain and others to mechanical flaws in his batting stance.
