Yordan Alvarez expected to play the field more frequently in 2020

The Astros are planning to have Yordan Alvarez play the field more often in 2020.

Fantasy Impact

Alvarez played in the field in just 10-of-87 games during his rookie season last year. The slugger played some left field and first base at times in 2019 but is still going to be a designated hitter long term. It would certainly help his fantasy value if he could pick up outfield eligibility at some point.

Yordan Alvarez (knee) might not be ready for Opening Day

Astros manager Dusty Baker says Yordan Alvarez (knee) will not play on Wednesday as previously scheduled.

Fantasy Impact

Even worse, Baker admitted that Alvarez might not be ready for Opening Day. The 22-year-old DH is dealing with soreness in both of his knees and it’s unclear when he will be ready for game action. It’s time to start moving him down draft boards until we get more information.

Yordan Alvarez (knee) could return to game action on Wednesday

Astros manager Dusty Baker says Yordan Alvarez (knee) could return to Grapefruit League action on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Alvarez has been dealing with soreness in both of his knees, however, he was able to participate in all baseball activities on Monday. As of now there is no reason to think he won't be ready for the start of the 2020 season.

Yordan Alvarez (knee) improving, still unclear when he'll return to lineup

Astros manager Dusty Baker says Yordan Alvarez (knee) is improving.

Fantasy Impact

However, it remains unclear when he will be ready to return to game action. Alvarez has been sidelined the past few days with soreness in both his knees.

Yordan Alvarez (knee) will be shutdown for a few days

Yordan Alvarez (knee) will be shutdown for a few days from baseball drills to rest his knees, per Astros Manager Dusty Baker.

Fantasy Impact

Alvarez will miss the next few days to manage his knee soreness. The move sounds precautionary, and it was reported Alvarez would be shutdown for three-to-four days. Alvarez is currently 27th overall in the expert consensus rankings. He will look to build on his rookie campaign, where he slashed .313/.412/.655 with 27 homers, 78 RBI and 58 runs scored across 87 games.
