This is your friendly reminder: Jose Alvarez is pitching for the Tigers today

Jose Alvarez's reign as champion is coming to an end.

The Tigers have just lost the first part of a double header with Kansas City. To avoid an embarrassing 0-for-2 against the Royals Detroit has leveraged its 26th man rule to bring up  Jose Alvarez.

The rule says a team can carry an extra player on days it has a double header.

Jose Alvarez is your 26th man. Jose Alvarez is your savior. And let’s not forget, Jose Alvarez is still your James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) winner.

I don’t care that it’s Friday night and you’ve got a hot date. Miss this and you’re missing a no-hitter. Let’s not forget what happened the first time Alvarez was called up.
