BRADENTON, Fla. — Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez sat out today's spring training workouts due to neck spasms.

General manager Neal Huntington did not specify how and when Alvarez was injured.

"He woke up this morning with a sore neck," Huntington said. "He's day to day."

Left-hander Scott Olsen threw long toss this morning on Field 4 at Pirate City. Olsen, who's expected to compete for the fifth starter job, has been out since last week with a strained left hamstring.

"We're still working through it on a daily basis," Huntington said. "We'll let you know in a couple of days where he is (physically)."
