Yordan Álvarez’s home-run projection gives him a season for the ages

It seems no one is bigger than Yordan Álvarez this season. No one inspires more fear than Yordan. No one seems to hit home runs with such regularity as Yordan does. Álvarez has proven to be a unique talent, a special hitter that we’re lucky enough to watch every night playing for the Houston Astros.

His projection for total home runs in 2022 is as special as the massive lefty slugger.

Based on what he’s done so far, hitting 22 homers in the Astros’ first 70 games of the campaign, Álvarez entered Saturday’s slate being on pace for 51 long balls.
