#3 landed on the tracks....a long way from where it was launched. Such a smooth, easy, and powerful swing.

His second homer in his second game was a gift of the baseball.

He'll take it. And if he keeps taking (most) pitches outside the zone, he'll be a force.

Tyler White took note and hit his second homer as well.

Alvarez isn't on the 40-man, so it will be interesting to see what they do to activate him.  Tucker is, so he could be first up.

I think Tyler White has about two weeks to show something. Super 2 is coming up, so it only makes sense for the Astros to hold off on an Alvarez promotion.

Time to bring the rest of the Round Rock offense to Houston, don't you think, Tim?

Alvarez has now been intentionally walked five times in the past two games. I guess that's what happens when most of the Round Rock offense is now in Houston. It shows the serious respect the opposition has for Alvarez, and at the same time is a huge fail in a League that is supposed to be developmental?

Yordan Alvarez, LF, Astros. As usual, Alvarez absolutely went off for Triple-A Round Rock. He had three hits and drove in a career-high six RBI. He hit a double and blasted two home runs, one in the first inning and one in the fifth inning. The Astros’ No. 3 prospect had an excellent month of April and is showing no signs of slowing down in May, collecting his second three-hit performance in a row.

I think the callup is soon enough that it was worth it to burn a spot in my OF in Tout this week. I'm betting that the 'Stros patience with White is coming to an end. It's also easy to rationalize that stance when you're last in HR and RBI.

Kemp plays CF, so he's not losing opportunities to Alvarez.  Only Marisnick catching fire does that.

I think Alvarez isn't good enough as a defender to move Reddick and tough lefties be damned, they both bat left.  Brantley can use some time at DH considering his past shoulder troubles.  But, I can't see why they continue giving AB to White. Sure, his OBP is really good, but he has no power so far and Reddick, Marisnick/Kemp, and Gurriel already have little power.

When's the call-up is Q1.  How the Stros get him ABs, and how many, if he does get the call is Q2.  Any thoughts on that second bit?
