Yordan Alvarez News
Houston Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez went 0-for-3 with two walks in the Astros 10-1 win over the White Sox to advance to the ALCS. Alvarez caused so much havoc in the first two games that the White Sox were extra cautious pitching to him as the talented slugger racked up six walks in the series. Alvarez led the team in the regular season in runs batted in (104) and slashed .273/.529/.636 against the White Sox in the ALDS. The Astros offense is humming right now and Alvarez will be an excellent DFS option against the Red Sox hitting cleanup.
Houston Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez went 1-for-2 with one RBI, one run scored and two walks in the team's 9-4 win over the White Sox in Game 2 of the ALDS. Alvarez has been a menace at the plate through the first two games, going 3-for-5 with two extra-base hits, three walks, three runs scored and three runs batted in. The talented slugger led the team in RBI's during the regular season and is leading the charge offensively in the playoffs.
Houston Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez will be ready for the spotlight when the team hosts the White Sox in the ALDS beginning Thursday. Alvarez was unable to play in last year's playoff run for the Astros but bounced back in a big way this season. The 24-year-old slashed .277/.346/.531 this season with 33 home runs, 35 doubles, 92 runs scored and a team-high 104 runs batted in. Alvarez will be entrusted to produce in this series and is posting a .855 OPS through 72 home games this season.
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.
