Drafted in the 2nd round (49th overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2003 (signed for $700,000)
Alvarez is a third-round pick for most teams, but don't be surprised if a team that emphasizes successful college players takes the 6-foot-3, 185-pounder late in the first round. Alvarez is a crafty lefthander who won his first 10 decisions and had a 4-1 strikeout-walk ratio. He doesn't have plus stuff, but understands how to work to hitters' weaknesses, rarely allows hitters to get good swings off him and has a knack for pitching out of trouble. His fastball ranges from 84-88 mph and he has an average major league curve and changeup.
