Alvarez finished the season with a .409 batting average that was sixth-best in Division I. Alvarez works the whole field, making for a difficult at-bat for a pitcher because he's rarely caught trying to do too much. His bat stays in the zone a long time and his hands work well. He's also shown average power as well with the ability to turn on a pitch if a pitcher tries to challenge him inside. Alvarez is an average runner. He played third base for Eastern Kentucky and he's fringy there with an average arm and playable hands, but he profiles better as a pro at second base, where he played earlier in his college career. Alvarez should get a chance to see if his advanced approach will translate to pro ball as a senior sign with talent to go with a smaller asking price.
