The Francisco Alvarez train is coming through to Coney Island.
The move should come as no surprise, as Alvarez had been mashing at Low-A St. Lucie. The catcher owned a .417 batting average (20-for-48) with a 1.218 OPS in 15 games.
Alvarez started the year at St. Lucie despite not having a minor league season in 2020 and only playing with Kingsport and the Gulf Coast League Mets in 2019.
You can learn more about Alvarez in the first episode of Mets Prospective, presented by Verizon and featuring DeMayo and SNY contributor Jacob Resnick. They spoke with Jeremy Barnes, the point person for all the Mets' minor league operations, about what makes Alvarez so special in all facets of his game.
