I was looking over the Pirates current active roster and their non-roster and I am confused about something. Firstly, I guess I should say that I understand why Andrew McCutchen isn't going to start the season on the 25-man roster. But, can someone please explain to me why Pedro Alvarez is currently on the active roster, even though he is obviously going to start off in a Low-A level part of the system?

He negotiated and signed a contract that said so.
