2018

2017

Alvarez has yet to pitch above Low-A, but he already demonstrates all of the qualities one looks for in a future ace. He has an 80-grade fastball, plus curveball, above-average changeup and average slider. The three secondary pitches all have the projection to jump a grade in the coming years, which would leave him with a monstrous repertoire. Alvarez also has prototypical size and athleticism. He pitched as a 20-year-old at 6-foot-3, 175 pounds, but he should add a bit more muscle to that frame by the time he reaches the majors. Poor control was a bit of an issue in his first five professional starts in the Arizona League, but he posted a quality 6.9 percent walk rate after a promotion to the Midwest League, while also upping his strikeout rate from 32.1 percent to 34.6 percent against more advanced hitters. He will receive an assignment to the California League, with the stuff and polish to move quickly and finish the year as a top-10 prospect in the game.

2016

Not a whole lot is known about Alvarez, the 19-year-old Cuban power right-hander the Dodgers inked to a $16 million contract in July, but what is known is tantalizing. An upper-90s fastball, above-average slider, and developing changeup highlight what could be a frontline arsenal. Alvarez stands 6-foot-3 and is listed at 175 pounds, a frame that will certainly fill out as he gets into a major league conditioning program. Since signing, he has been working out at the Dodgers academy in the Dominican Republic. He will likely join the club in Arizona for spring training and will spend the 2016 season in the lower levels of the minors. There could be some developmental bumps initially, but he also has the upside to be one of the biggest risers up prospect lists if he has initial stateside success.
