2015

2014

The Angels' first pick in the 2012 draft (third round), Alvarez turned heads at High-A Inland Empire last season when he struck out 79 batters in 48.2 innings pitched. Perhaps equally impressive, he allowed only two home runs in the hitter-friendly environment of the California League. Alvarez, who will likely begin the season in Double-A Arkansas, is expected to move quickly through the Angels' minor league system, and has an outside chance of appearing with the big club at some point in 2014.
