Astros' Yordan Alvarez: Scorching at Low-A
Alvarez, 19, is slashing .397/.489/.667 with five home runs, 20 RBI and two steals through 22 games for Low-A Quad Cities.
The sample size is small, but the left-handed Cuban is crushing the ball out of the gate. At 6-foot-5, 225 lbs, Alvarez has home run power as well as the ability to swipe the occasional bag. He fits right at home in the Houston organization, and the Astros likely won't even mind the fact that he's averaging more than a strikeout per game.
