Alvarez has been absolutely tearing the cover off the ball since the day he arrived in Houston, much as he was doing to poor Triple-A pitchers. He certainly looks here to stay as a premier fantasy asset.

Alvarez was hitting .343/.443/.742 with 23 home runs in 56 Triple-A games prior to his call-up. He went yard in his MLB debut and is batting .329/.431/.698 in 261 plate appearances. It's safe to say he's staying in Houston's stacked lineup for the long haul. The 21-year-old brings massive power upside to the table and has immediately turned into a mixed-league cornerstone.

Yordan came into the league blazing but as we saw with Michael Chavis earlier this season, that doesn't suddenly make him a superstar. While it is possible that he continues to rake like Pete Alonso, we are better off holding back from calling him a top 10 fantasy outfielder for now.
