Coaches Comments:

Farrah Scout Team –
Coach Frank Montalvo

Armando Alvarez is a 1B from Farrah Scout. Alvarez is an aggressive player that attacks the baseball and does not let the ball play him just because it may be a difficult pick. He’s aggressive with the glove and takes it through the baseball. His footwork is excellent, he understands where his feet need to be and maximizes the distance he can cover while keeping contact with the bag. Good bat speed. Mechanics on his swing are very good for his age. Short, compact swing. Potential for a lot of power.

Armando Alvarez has a medium frame with an athletic build.  His primary position is first base, secondary outfield; he centers and funnels the baseball well out front – works through exchange with fluid, clean actions- compact arm circle at separation and released from a three-quarters slot topping out at 83 mph.  Defensively – from the outfield, shows smooth, deliberate footwork while closing to the baseball.

Offensively – right handed hitter with an even, balanced stance. Lower half has rotational actions to contact while hands works on a simple, direct path to contact. Barrel works through the zone on a naturally leveraged plane with present bat speed. Flashed the ability to turn the barrel to contact and work to pull side with some authority. Kept things simple, consistently repeating barrel plane creating hard contact throughout batting practice.

Area Code Tryout – Cesar Presbott, Scout New York Yankees:
“Armando had very good footwork with a very good arm and glove. He can also swing the bat very well.”

Perfect Game Showcase Batting Highlights:
Armando Alvarez repeated a simple line drive swing path with a naturally leverage plane through extension. Three times all tournament team; the primary first baseman showed a mature approach while at the plate consistently squaring up the baseball throughout the event.  Armando Alvarez worked to contact with rotational actions generating a repeatable swing plane with present bat speed. Alvarez consistently produced hard contact with the ability to turn the barrel aggressively.
