R J Alvarez--Angels 1st Pick

22

#114 Alvarez, R.J. Florida Atlantic, FL RHP R/R JR 6'01" 200lbs DOB: 06/08/91 | Full Scouting Report: With a bulldog mentality and a body type to match, Alvarez plays the part of a short reliever very well. He has the fastball to go along with it, running it up to 97 mph and sitting comfortably at 95 mph while closing games for Florida Atlantic. Alvarez's secondary stuff isn't quite as good, though his changeup does have some pretty good deception to it. His breaking ball, however, is inconsistent. That, along with his command, will need to improve if he wants to close games at the big league level. Even if Alvarez isn't racking up saves, though, he could have value as a setup man, with that velocity and mound presence too much for teams to ignore in the first couple of rounds of the Draft.
