2019 Fantasy Outlook
Alvarez's reward for a career-best season was a trade to Philadelphia where he'll add a veteran lefty presence to an improving bullpen. In 2018, Alvarez posted his third straight year with double-digit holds for the Angels, allowing just three homers in 63 innings, fueling his personal lowest ERA. He'll be hard-pressed to repeat that in Citizen's Bank Park, a venue more generous with respect to the long ball. On the other hand, his new home digs inflate strikeouts a little more than Angels Stadium, so that combined with the move to the Senior Circuit should add a few more punchouts to his ledger. Curiously, left-handed batters hit Alvarez for more power than righties, while right-handed swingers sport a much higher batting average. Look for Alvarez to be deployed in a high-leverage setup role, making him useful in deeper leagues scoring holds. Read Past Outlooks
