Alvarez has otherworldly talent, but this isn't the first time he has dealt with knee issues. The team has offered minimal information about the nature of the injury and whether or not it will eventually require surgery. In 2019, Alvarez batted .313 with 58 runs scored, 27 home runs, and 78 RBI in just 87 games.
