Yadier Alvarez – 100 MPH – WOW

I’ll let the MiLB report tell you all you need to know about what Yadier Alveraz did last night.

Alvarez hits 100 mph in five hitless frames
Dodgers’ No. 6 prospect strikes out eight in latest gem for the Loons

“It’s very impressive,” Velazquez said. “His fastball is a power fastball. He topped out at 100 [mph] a few times tonight. He’ll sit around 96 and he’s got a sharp curve. You can tell the hitters were intimidated. For him to be as young as he is and have such an easy delivery and hit 100 mph is impressive.”

Baseball America checks in:

Yadier Alvarez, rhp, Dodgers. The Dodgers’ No. 10 prospect at midseason, Alvarez pitched five no-hit innings Tuesday for low Class A Great Lakes in a 12-0 win over Lansing (Blue Jays). Alvarez struck out eight and walked three, touching 100 mph, manager Gil Velasquez told reporters. Overall at two levels, the 19-year-old Cuban—who got a $16 million bonus—is 3-2, 2.12 with 68 strikeouts in 46 2/3 innings. Alvarez has a lively, loose arm and a lithe, athletic frame that allows him to repeat his delivery easily. The breaking ball has good angle and the changeup is in development.
