"Every year I get older, every season that goes by, I get more and more comfortable at the plate," Álvarez said. "It's just staying within myself and really trusting my game plan. It happens with anybody. Pitchers get older, they pitch better. There's just something about the game where the more reps you get, the more comfortable you feel, the more comfortable you look. The goal is to keep progressing, keep learning, and I feel like I'm on the right track."
