How Yordan Alvarez went from minor leaguer to major masher

One of the best moves Astros GM Jeff Luhnow ever made was trading Josh Fields for Yordan Alvarez.

Luhnow certainly didn't think Alvarez would be this good this fast, but he must have seen something in the young Cuban power hitter.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank discusses how important this trade was for the Astros because it not only added a great hitter to Houston's lineup, but the move also kept Alvarez from being a big threat on another super team, the Dodgers. Point Blank is presented by Fitz Roofing.
