RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Alvarez defected from Cuba and signed with the Orioles in late July. He made a big splash in rookie ball and Low-A before stalling in nine games at Double-A. Alvarez will get compared to fellow Orioles prospect Henry Urrutia, and the belief as of now is that Urrutia is the better offensive talent. Alvarez's throwing arm is regarded as the best in the organization, so good that some teams, including the Orioles, considered converting him into a pitcher. Alvarez should start the season where he left off in Double-A, and the 25-year-old could advance quickly even though his ceiling is probably as a reserve outfielder.
Alvarez is a Cuban defector who played six years in the Serie Nacional and hit .363 in 2010-11. He's not seen as a great hitter, but can field all three outfield positions. He'll likely sign with a MLB club in 2013.
