Scouting Report
: Small lefty with a 88-91 mph straight fastball.  He also throws a 72-76 mph changeup and an average low-70s curveball. His curveball shows sweeping action at times, but also shows 12-6 break on occasion. It's a work in progress, but he already misses bats with it.  His changeup is pretty deceptive - it keeps batters off balance.  His arm action on his change is indiscernible from his fastball.  Decent control, Alvarez pounds the zone, but tends to leave the ball up too often, where he really can get hit around.
