Jorge Mario Alfaro Buelvas (born June 11, 1993) is a professional baseball catcher in the Philadelphia Phillies organization. He is considered one of the best catching prospects in baseball.
Alfaro signed with the Texas Rangers as a free agent. Prior to the 2013 season he was ranked by MLB.com as the 88th best prospect in baseball. He is the 54th best prospect by Baseball America. After the 2013 season he played in the Arizona Fall League.
On November 20th, 2014, the Rangers added Alfaro to their 40-man roster to protect him from being selected in the Rule 5 draft.
