Yordan Alvarez, Baseball’s Fastest Rising Star
The Yordan Alvarez hype train is leaving the station. Do you have your ticket?
After setting Triple-A on fire with a positive video-game-like .372 batting average, with 19 homers, impossible .802 slugging percentage, and 58 RBI in 167 at-bats, Alvarez has clearly outperformed the minors.
It’s rare for a prospect to go from slept on to consensus future star this quickly, so you don’t have long to invest in his rookie card before everyone else figures out what the Astros and a few savvy investors already know: Yordan Alvarez is the real deal.
Is a Yordan Alvarez rookie card a good long-term investment?
The future looks bright for Alvarez.
The Astros look like they’re going to use him a lot this season as manager A.J. Hinch already seems impatient with 1B/DH Tyler White, sitting him more often as the year goes on.
Experts agree that White’s .207 average against right-handers and total lack of power could pave the way for a left-handed bomber like Alvarez.
