RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Alvarez had a phenomenal start in 2012 thanks to a devastating sinker and strong defense from Brett Lawrie and Yunel Escobar on the left side of Toronto's infield. Unfortunately, he lacked a pitch to put hitters away and recorded just 79 strikeouts in 187.1 innings. Eventually, the extreme contact tendencies caught up with him as the season wore on. Finishing 9-14 with a 4.85 ERA, Alvarez's rotation spot was in doubt, but his inclusion in the November blockbuster with Miami should keep him in the rotation for Opening Day.

2012

Alvarez earned a callup to Toronto in August despite skipping Triple-A and fared well enough to enter into the picture for a rotation spot this spring. He didn't dominate at Double-A (1.114 WHIP, 6.75 K/9IP) as you might have expected for someone who skipped Triple-A, but he held his own in 10 starts for the Jays (1.131 WHIP, 5.65 K/9IP, 1.13 BB/9IP). While Alvarez will turn 22 in April and there's plenty of growth potential here given his excellent control, keep in mind that his 6.75 K/9IP at Double-A was the highest strikeout rate he posted at any minor league stop. He'll likely have to pitch his way off the roster this spring depending on what the Jays do in the offseason, but expect some bumps along the way.
