Hmm. I'd call it a coin flip. I like Alvarez more, especially the ratio help that late, but Sanchez has massive K upside, so if that's what you need...

I would personally lean towards Sanchez just because of the K rate but neither of them really gets me excited.

Alvarez pretty easily. Sanchez should stay on the WW until he can prove that he is worth adding. Last year was really bad and he has shown no signs that he is ever going to turn the corner. BB way too many people.

Alverez is my pick too. His sinker/change combo is deadly, and his slider was looking good in ST. Sanchez is way too prone to long bouts of walk-itis. Just make sure you sit Alverez vs. the Yankees/Rangers/Redsox and you should come out ahead.

I have feeling most will say Sanchaez, but I'm going Alvarez.
