The 2022 of MLB has been the consecration for a Yordan Alvarez of whom there are no doubts that he is one of the great offensive weapons of the Houston Astros.
And it is that the Cuban has been named Player of the Week in the american leaguebeing his second recognition of this caliber in a course in which he already attended his first All-Star Game.
In addition to reaping .304 batting with .407 OBP, 37 home runs and 93 produced during the current MLB exercise, Yordan Álvarez accumulates three campaigns of at least 27 home runs (only he did not achieve it in the shortened course of the pandemic), while who is approaching his second year in a row pushing over 100 races, after 104 in 2021.
Likewise, the impact of the Antillean on the Astros has been such that he has served as the third or fourth slugger in 120 games, on the way to a postseason where the space squad will arrive with the best record in the young circuit.
It must be remembered that the man born in Las Tunas was chosen Rookie of the Year in 2019, so it can be concluded that he has been producing remarkably since he arrived in the majors.
There is hardly a better designated hitter in the world right now. MLB than Yordan Alvarez.
