when he hit .313 with 27 homers slugged and was named Rookie of the Year.
He’s scaled .272/.367/.574 with 14 home runs this season.
Alvarejo is a proven October performer, with an OPS of .843 in 34 postseason games.
He was named ALCS MVP last season after going 12-for-23 in the Astros’ six-game series win over the Red Sox.
