I will be going to the Futures Game.  I will take notes as I keep score. It will likely backfire as I am not a trained scout and could be easily impressed by irrelevant details.

Maybe he's not another outfielder. BA profiling players for the Futures Game:

Yordan Alvarez, 1B, Astros (Double-A Corpus Christi)
Age: 21. HT: 6-5. WT: 225. B-T: L-R.
Source: Cuba.
How Acquired: Traded by Dodgers to Astros for RHP Josh Fields, July 31, 2016.

Background: Originally signed out of Cuba by the Dodgers, he was traded to the Astros before he played for any Dodgers’ affiliate.

What To Watch For: Alvarez has one of the best combinations of power and hitting ability in the minors.

Really? Another Astros outfielder mashing in the minors.

5. Yordan Alvarez, OF, Astros
Team: Double-A Corpus Christi (Texas)
Age: 20
Why He’s Here: .400/.400/.767 (12-for-30), 6 R, 2 2B, 3 HR, 9 RBIs, 0 BB, 9 SO

The Scoop: Alvarez missed a month with a hand injury, but you wouldn’t know it based on his hot hitting in the Texas League. He homered in his June 17 return and launched three more during this Hot Sheet “scoring period.” The 6-foot-5, lefthanded-hitting Alvarez hits the ball hard with consistency and now carries a .324/.380/.606 batting line with 10 homers through 35 games this season.
