Yordan Alvarez News
Houston Astros outfielder Yordan Alvarez went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Minnesota Twins. He took Josh Winder deep in the third inning and then later crushed another homer off Cole Sands for his second blast of the game. The 24-year-old is now tied with New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge with 10 home runs for the major-league lead. Overall, Alvarez is having a terrific season, slashing .271/.377/.615 with 10 home runs, 19 RBI, and 19 runs across 27 games.
Houston Astros outfielder Yordan Alvarez helped lead the team to a three-game sweep of the Seattle Mariners this week. Across the three-game series, he went 3-for-9 with two home runs, three walks, three RBI and three runs scored. Alvarez is currently fourth in the majors in home runs with eight, but he's played in fewer games than the three players ahead of him. The 24-year-old is slashing .268/.373/.634 over 20 games on the season while ranking in the 99th percentile in average exit velocity (96.1 mph), xwOBA (.484) and xSLG (.747).
Houston Astros outfielder/designated hitter Yordan Alvarez helped the team capture a 5-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday. He went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and a run scored. This was just the second multi-hit game of the year for the 24-year-old. Alvarez was hitting just .158/.238/.421 before this week's series with the Rangers began, but his home run on Monday and his two-hit game on Tuesday have led to a more digestible .200/.280/.511 slash line for him. As was the case last year, Alvarez has elite power peripherals across the board so far this season, including a 98th percentile hard-hit rate (59.5%) and a 96th percentile average exit velocity (94.1 mph).
Yordan Alvarez is a big, powerful, and strong player with an immense talent for hitting the ball very hard. Coming in at 6'5" and 225 lbs., his power profile from 2019 put him in the 94th percentile for exit velocity, 94th percentile for HardHit%, and the 98th percentile for Barrel%. That is, in a word, awesome. On top of that, he had a 14.1% walk percentage (94th percentile) which elevated him to an OBP of .412. His K% is a bit high at 25.5%, but you take that and run with everything else he brings to the table. However, he only played two games in all of 2020, and at his current NFBC ADP of 87, his injury history and ongoing knee issues have to be a major concern. The fact that he is coming off of surgery to repair a partial tear of the patella tendon in his right knee is just the latest in a series of knee problems he has had dating back to his time in the minors. Yordan is back in action this spring, looking healthy as the Astros primary DH. There's a chance that you get him with the talent upside of a Top-30 player with an ADP in the 80s. He is worth the risk at his current price, and you can cover his injury risk with a safer option later in the draft.
