  • Francisco Alvarez Remains Out On Tuesday

    Headshot for Francisco Alvarez

    New York Mets catcher Francisco Alvarez remains out of the starting lineup ahead of Tuesday's game against the Atlanta Braves. When asked about the situation, Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said Alvarez is beat up right now. It sounds like the young backstop is dealing with normal bumps and bruises that happen when you're a full-time catcher. Omar Narvaez will handle the duties behind the plate for at least one more game. Fantasy managers should adjust their lineups accordingly.

  • Francisco Alvarez Drives In Two Runs In Game 1 Of Doubleheader

    Headshot for Francisco Alvarez

    New York Mets catcher Francisco Alvarez went 2-for-5 with two RBI during Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader with the Detroit Tigers. The 22-year-old has now collected multiple hits in three of his last four games. Alvarez showcased his raw power during his rookie season by belting 25 home runs, but his .209 batting average and .284 on-base percentage left a lot to be desired. Alvarez has looked more composed at the plate to start 2024, slashing .400/.429/.700 with a homer and four RBI through 21 plate appearances. While his ratios are sure to regress, Alvarez looks like he could provide a solid offensive season for fantasy managers.

  • Francisco Alvarez Batting Cleanup Against Tigers

    Headshot for Francisco Alvarez

    New York Mets catcher Francisco Alvarez is behind the dish and is hitting cleanup on Monday against right-hander Reese Olson and the Detroit Tigers. It's the first time this year that Alvarez has hit higher than sixth in New York's batting order, but he'll be in the cleanup spot for the start of the series against Detroit with Jeff McNeil on the bench. The 22-year-old backstop is off to a good start at the plate in the first three games of the season, recording five hits in his first 10 at-bats with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in 11 plate appearances. He may not be of much help in the batting average department, but after slugging 25 long balls in his first full season in 2023, Alvarez proved that he has high-end power at the catching position.

  • Francisco Alvarez Shines At Plate Saturday

    Headshot for Francisco Alvarez

    New York Mets catcher Francisco Alvarez had a big day at the plate on Saturday, going 3-4 with a solo shot and recording two RBI with two runs in the Mets 7-6 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. Alvarez provided the Mets only offense early with his solo homer coming in the second inning and hitting an RBI single in the third. It was a good sign to see after going hitless on Opening Day. Alvarez is hitting .429 (3-for-7) with a home run and two RBI over two games in 2024. The Mets catcher should continue to put up productive numbers as one of the top 10-rated fantasy catchers for 2024.

  • Francisco Alvarez Doubles, Homers On Friday

    Headshot for Francisco Alvarez

    New York Mets catcher Francisco Alvarez went 2-for-2 on Friday in a 3-1 Grapefruit League win over the Miami Marlins. The backstop also recorded an RBI and two runs scored. It was the second straight game with a home run for Alvarez and third of the spring. He's off to a nice start, going 5-for-14 (.357) with a double, three home runs, five RBI, and five runs scored. He's also walked more than he's struck out, with four and two respectively. He always had strong walk rates in the minors prior to the 8.0% he posted in 2023, so expect a bounce in OBP this season and his power should once again be one of the best at the position.

  • Francisco Alvarez Flashes More Power Thursday

    Headshot for Francisco Alvarez

    New York Mets catcher Francisco Alvarez showed more of his prodigious power on Thursday as he clubbed a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth inning of his team's 3-1 win over the Washington Nationals. The long ball was the sophomore's second of the spring after he flashed some notable power as a rookie in 2023. Alvarez hit 25 homers a season ago, second-best among all big league catchers behind the Mariners' Cal Raleigh (30). At the same time, he hit just .209 and struck out in 26% of his plate appearances but the power display continued a trend from his minor-league career. ATC projects 24 more homers from the 22-year-old in the 2024 season with an increased .228 average, making him one of the top-rated backstops in fantasy drafts this spring.

  • Francisco Alvarez Blasts Second Homer Of Spring

    Headshot for Francisco Alvarez

    New York Mets shortstop Francisco Alvarez when 1-for-2 with a two-run blast in Thursdays Grapefruit League contest versus the Washington Nationals. The home run would be the second of the spring for the Mets backstop. The 22-year-old entered last season as one of the top prospects in the game and didn't disappoint. After a slow adjustment to the big leagues, Alvarez finished with 25 homers, 63 RBI and a .209 batting average. It would be nice to see the average progress in 2024, but the power is totally there. Due to that, Alvarez should be selected in all formats and has Top-5 potential behind the dish.

  • Francisco Alvarez Close To Extension With Mets

    Headshot for Francisco Alvarez

    Catcher Francisco Alvarez is close to signing a long-term contract extension with the New York Mets on Tuesday, according to a source. Alvarez is the team's catcher of the future. The 22-year-old Venezuelan backstop played in five games in 2022 and was called up in early April last year and stayed with the team the rest of the season. He hit .209/.284/.437 with 25 home runs, 12 doubles, 63 RBI and 51 runs scored in 423 plate appearances over 123 games played. Alvarez strikes out a lot and doesn't walk much, but his power abilities alone at the weak catching position make him very attractive in fantasy. The 22-year-old should also be an asset in the RBI category in a Mets lineup that should be stronger in 2024. Any extension with Alvarez will likely buy out the five years before he becomes a free agent.
