Default Francisco Alvarez 17 y/o Catching prospect

#3 on BA's Hot Sheet this week


Team: Short-season Kingsport (Appalachian)
Age: 17

Why He’s Here: .563/.650/.813 (9-for-16), 6 R, 1 2B, 0 3B, 1 HR, 3 RBIs, 3 BB, 5 SO

The Scoop: Alvarez skipped the Dominican Summer League and made his debut stateside with a bang. Alvarez’s hit tool is advanced, and he has worked on a five-game hit streak this week with an RBI in three consecutive games. It’s an aggressive assignment, but Alvarez is taking it in stride and showing why he was one of the premier 2018 international signings. (JC)

Also of note Ali Sanchez is quietly having a solid year in AA.

We all know he can catch and has a hose, but he is also hitting .291 with a respectable OPS of .703.

Catchers take forever, Sanchez is still only 22.

Without the homers, but that's still not bad.

Last time we had a young catching prospect named Francisco it didn't end too well.

So irritated looking at the box score of Kingsport and one of Baty or Alvarez is benched. Play these damn kids!

Mike (Virginia):

Thoughts on Francisco Alvarez? I know its early, but he seems to be living up to the hit tool projections so far.

Justin Coleman: He has been great. First division catcher type of upside with feel to hit and power as well.

Think it was in BA that I read his hands and forearms are so strong his teammates call him “The Thing”.

Also apparently his family owns a construction business and this dude was hauling 90 lb bags of concrete when he was 10.

If the bat is elite, find another position


Name any elite offensive catchers now?

Gary and Contreras?

What position? 1B, corner OF, maybe 3B?

You don't worry about moving a 17-year-old prospect off C because you're afraid of him wearing down when he's 30. Cross your fingers for now and hope you have something special.
