Pedro Alvarez is one of the hardest players in fantasy baseball to own – especially in a head-to-head format. Nonetheless, Mr. Alvarez finished the 2013 fantasy season as the 11th rated player with 3B eligibility according to ESPN’s player rater. If you’re in an auction league you might have gotten a nice value considering Alvarez earned $12.43 according to Fangraphs’ Zach Sanders. His value for 2014 is somewhat of a mystery at this point. His power is phenomenal, but is there room for growth in other areas? Can he even maintain his numbers from this year?
Alvarez is the type of player that can carry your team for weeks on end – to some extent every player is – but unfortunately he can also drag your squad down to their absolute floor for an extended period of time.
