2021 Fantasy Outlook
There were times in 2018 when Alvarado looked like the next big thing out of the Tampa Bay bullpen. He touched 100 mph with a two-seamer that seemingly defied the laws of physics at times coupled with a slider that came in around the speed of the league-average fastball. That feels like a decade ago, as Alvarado has rarely been right since due to injuries, inconsistency and family issues. He still throws hard but has permitted 71 baserunners and uncorked 11 wild pitches in 39 innings over the past two seasons. He was a healthy scratch from the postseason roster because his command simply could not be trusted in high-leverage situations. The career 27.9 K% and .207 BAA make him tempting to chase, especially now that he's in Philadelphia where there's less competition for saves, but his command of the strike zone has been AWOL since the end of the 2018 season. If he finds "it" again, he could dominate. Read Past Outlooks
