The Orioles announced Thursday that they have reinstated infielder Pedro Alvarez from the bereavement list. Alvarez is slashing .242/.317/.461 with nine home runs and 26 RBIs in 53 games for Baltimore this season.

Alvarez was placed on the three-day bereavement list on Sunday following a death in his family, and flew to the Dominican Republic following Baltimore's series finale against Seattle.
