"Getting opportunities to go out there is again, out of my hands, out of my reach," Álvarez said. "Everyone wants to be able to compete up here, and I want the same opportunities as well. But personal accolades and all that stuff, that's never been the thing for me. It's all about how can I help to win the game that day? And that's what's important to me. That's what's important for me to show what I can do, and the rest will take care of itself. I've always been a big believer of things falling into place the way they should if you just go about things the right way, and work, and are prepared when you're called upon."
