MRI reveals no structural damage on Marlins P Henderson Alvarez
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez received good news on Tuesday as an MRI revealed no structural damage on his left shoulder, according to the Miami Herald.
Alvarez, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury on May 22, has already had one stint on the disabled list this season when he battled an elbow injury. He has struggled so far this season with an 0-4 mark and a 6.45 ERA in 22 1/3 innings of work.
Marlins place Henderson Alvarez, Mat Latos on disabled list
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) After throwing five innings during Friday's 8-5 loss to the Orioles, the Marlins placed pitcher Henderson Alvarez on the 15-day disabled list, the team announced.
Alvarez is suffering from right shoulder inflammation. During Friday's start, Alvarez allowed six runs (four earned) on six hits. He struck out two batters and walked four. He is now 0-4 with a 6.45 ERA. Prior to Friday's start, it was revealed that Alvarez had been pitching with a torn UCL for years.
In addition to Alvarez, the team also placed starting pitcher Mat Latos on the 15-day disabled list Friday. Latos is dealing with left knee inflammation. He surrendered six runs during his last start Thursday.
The team is expected to call up pitchers Andre Rienzo and Vin Mazzaro from Triple-A on Saturday, reports the Miami Herald.
Marlins P Henderson Alvarez has been pitching with torn UCL
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) Could the Marlins have rushed right-hander Henderson Alvarez back from the disabled list? Alvarez returned from the DL last weekend after suffering elbow tightness and shoulder inflammation, and had a rough start on Saturday against the Braves. But the Marlins needed him to come back with fellow starter Jarred Cosart placed on the DL with a bout of vertigo.
CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports that Alvarez has apparently been pitching with a 90-percent torn UCL for years, but has been able to get by without needing surgery.
Last year, Alvarez made 30 starts for the Marlins, and finished with a very impressive 2.65 ERA. It is worth wondering if Alvarez was in fact ready to return from his DL stint, or if the return will have any long-term ramifications.
Marlins starter Henderson Alvarez batted around in loss on Sunday
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Marlins starter Henderson Alvarez (0-3) was batted around for six runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings Sunday to take the loss against the Braves.|
Five of the six runs Alvarez allowed came in the second inning, which was highlighted by a two-run single from Jace Peterson.
Alvarez has now allowed 10 runs in 10 1/3 innings (8.71 ERA) over his last two starts.
Alvarez's next start is set for Friday against the Orioles.
Marlins activate Henderson Alvarez from disabled list
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) The Marlins activated pitcher Henderson Alvarez (elbow) from the 15-day disabled list Sunday, designating pitcher Nick Masset for assignment in a corresponding move.
Alvarez made just two starts in April before hitting the disabled list with elbow tightness and shoulder inflammation. He threw six scoreless innings in a rehab game with Class A Jupiter Tuesday and will start Sunday against the Braves.
Alvarez is 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 5:1 K:BB ratio in 12 innings.
|2014 Summary: Even though Henderson Alvarez throws a mid-to-upper 90s fastball, he continued to live up to his reputation as a contact pitcher. Much as he did in his previous three seasons, Alvarez made up for a lack of strikeouts with superb control and strong ground ball tendencies. He walked a mere 1.6 hitters per nine innings and tied for the National League lead with 24 double play balls. Though he missed and exited a handful of starts due to injury, Alvarez was a workhorse when healthy, and he turned in three shutouts. The result was his best season to date, as Alvarez gave his owners a 12-7 record and a 2.65 ERA.|
Playing time status: Alvarez contended with elbow, hip, shin, shoulder and oblique injuries last season, but none kept him sidelined for long. The Marlins appeared to take a cautious approach with Alvarez, and if they do the same in 2015, it could limit his innings, but ultimately aid his longevity.
2015 Outlook: It's probably to safe to give up on waiting for Alvarez's strikeouts to materialize, but that doesn't mean he should go undrafted in standard mixed leagues. He's useful in nearly every two-start week, so owners in leagues with bench spots should set one aside for this late-round option.
