by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Alvarez allowed two runs on six hits over eight innings of work. He struck out four and walked one. The Braves struck early against Alvarez, hitting a two-run homer in the second inning. Alvarez settled in at that point, tossing three more innings of scoreless ball. Alvarez threw 101 pitches during the outing. 

Alvarez was matched by Aaron Harang throughout the start. He nearly earned a no-decision, but the Marlins managed to scratch a run across in the top of the ninth inning, giving Alvarez the win. He improved to 7-5 on the year. Alvarez’s next start will come against Nationals.

Henderson Alvarez on track to start Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez remains on track to make his next start on Thursday against the Braves in Atlanta, manager Mike Redmond told reporters on Monday, per the Sun Sentinel. Alvarez struck by a comebacker on his left shin Saturday against the Giants.

"He's been feeling better each day," Redmond said. "I haven't heard anything to be concerned about. We got lucky because it kind of caught him in between the muscle and the bone on the shin, and I think it got more muscle than bone. That's a big one for us. We can't lose anybody, but especially him."

Marlins in wait-and-see mode with Henderson Alvarez


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) The Marlins are in wait-and-see mode after starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez was struck by a comebacker on his left shin Saturday against the Giants.

"I'm sure he's sore," manager Mike Redmond said, per MLB.com. "We'll know more in another day or so, when he throws his bullpen and plays catch."

X-rays came back negative and Alvarez is receiving treatment for the injury. The right-hander, however, said he expects to be ready for his next start Thursday against the Braves. However, Redmond said he could be pushed back.

"I'm anticipating him being able to make his start," Redmond said. "If it's sore, then we have the flexibility to push him back a day, to give him an extra day. Whatever he needs."

Henderson Alvarez knocked around Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez had a tough start Friday against the Mets.

Alvarez allowed six runs on eight hits over five innings of work. He did not issue any walks, but did strike out three over the course of the outing. After a scoreless first, Henderson’s struggles began. He allowed three straight hits in the second inning, bringing in two runs. Lucas Duda cashed in two more runs the following inning after hitting a home run. David Wright also clubbed a two run shot off Alvarez in the fifth. 

The loss dropped Alvarez to 6-4 on the year. His next start should come shortly after the All-Star break.


Henderson Alvarez wins for second time in nine road starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez won for just the second time in nine road starts Sunday at St. Louis. He allowed one run on five hits and one walk in seven innings, while striking out three during an 8-4 win.

Alvarez (6-3) was involved in a pitcher's duel for most of the afternoon before Miami broke open the game with a three-run sixth inning. Alvarez was pitching with a 4-0 lead before St. Louis collected its only run off the right-hander in the seventh inning. It came courtesy of a Kolten Wong home run with one out.

Alvarez has won his last four decisions and hasn't taken a loss since May 11, which is a span of 10 starts. He's allowed two or fewer runs in nine straight starts.

He's scheduled to make his next start Friday at N.Y. Mets. Alvarez is 2-0 with a 0.84 ERA in three starts against New York this season.


Henderson Alvarez tosses quality start vs. Phillies Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez was not a factor in the decision Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out three in his team's 5-4 win over the Braves.

Alvarez gave up a run in the first inning and another in the fourth but was able to pitch well enough to win before the bullpen blew the lead in the eighth inning. He hasn't surrendered more than two earned runs in any of his last eight starts and now owns a 2.33 ERA and 67:21 K:BB ratio in 108 innings. Alvarez is slated to face the Cardinals Sunday.


Henderson Alvarez wins third straight


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez continued his strong run Wednesday, in a 3-2 win over the Phillies.

Alvarez limited the Phillies to two runs -- one earned -- while reaching the seventh inning for the third straight start. He scattered seven hits and a pair of walks in the outing, while striking out three on 90 pitches in 6 2/3 innings of work in the win.

Alvarez has not lost over his last eight starts, while lowering his ERA to 2.32, good for fourth in the National League. He is 5-3 heading into his next outing, set for Tuesday, again against the Phillies.  


Henderson Alvarez shuts Mets out over six-plus innings


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez continued his strong pitcher Friday, in a 3-2 win over the Mets.

Alvarez pitched into the seventh inning for the second straight start, but was unable to finish the frame this time around. He was lifted after 6 1/3 shutout innings, having allowed just seven hits and no walks. He struck out five batters on 94 pitches in the win, just his second in seven starts.

Alvarez has allowed just three earned runs over his last six starts to lower his ERA to 2.39, a mark that ranks fifth in the National League. He improved his record to 4-3 heading into his next start, set for Wednesday in Philadelphia.  


Henderson Alvarez takes no-decision Sunday vs. Pirates


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez turned into another strong start at home Sunday against the Pirates. However, he didn't factor into the decision, as Miami won 3-2 in 10 innings.

Alvarez, who entered Sunday's game with a 3-1 record, 1.47 WHIP and 0.95 WHIP in six home starts, held Pittsburgh to two runs on seven hits and two walks in seven innings. He struck out six. Alvarez was in line for the loss until Miami rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game at 2 in the eighth inning.

Alvarez gave up an RBI double to Starling Marte in the third inning and an RBI single to Josh Harrison in the fourth inning. He hasn't allowed more than two runs in his last four home starts.

The right-handed hurler is expected to be back on the hill Friday against the Mets. Alvarez is 1-0 with a 1.20 ERA in two starts against New York this season.


Henderson Alvarez takes hill Sunday vs. Pirates


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez took the hill Sunday against the Pirates after leaving his previous start due to a hip injury. Alvarez is 3-1 with a 1.47 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in six home starts this season.

Henderson Alvarez does not expect to miss time


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez told The Miami Herald he should be able to make his next start, and his exit from last Sunday's outing was more of a precaution than anything.

"Everything was fine. I was good. The only thing is when I fell it looked ugly. But I could have kept pitching," Alvarez said. "I didn't have anything wrong with my body. I wanted to keep pitching."

Alvarez will throw his usual between-start bullpen session Wednesday or Thursday, and that is the lone hurdle he has to get through. Manager Mike Redmond seems confident that Alvarez will be able to make his next scheduled start, Sunday against the Pirates.


Can't fully buy into Henderson Alvarez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/9/2014) Even though Henderson Alvarez allowed only one earned run in his 5 1/3 innings at the Cubs Sunday, it was the most he's allowed in four starts. For those curious, that comes out to a 0.34 ERA.

And even though only two of those starts were technically quality starts, the only reason he left the other two before completing six innings was because of injuries -- the first to his elbow and the second to his hip.

His hip is fine, by the way, as is his elbow, so ... nothing but good news, right?

I guess. But I'm still not ready to trust a pitcher who misses as few bats as he does. It's clear his sinker is something special -- one capable of producing a league-leading percentage of ground balls -- but still, what about those days when it isn't sinking quite right? And what about those days when those ground balls aren't fielded so cleanly? Though it hasn't impacted his ERA too much, Alvarez has been hit hard in seven of his starts this season.

You know who else had a special sinker that was supposed to lead to great things? Fausto Carmona. Instead, he became Roberto Hernandez and never did anything of real consequence.

Because Alvarez's bad starts tend to be exceptionally bad, I feel like you have to start him every time to get the full benefit. And with his limited strikeout ability, I don't have the discipline to do that.


Henderson Alvarez 'seems to be OK'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Marlins starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez "seems to be OK" after leaving Sunday's game with a strained left hip, manager Mike Redmond told the Miami Herald. Alvarez should be able to make his next start Saturday against the Pirates, Redmond said.


Henderson Alvarez leaves with hip injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Marlins starter Henderson Alvarez left Sunday's game against the Cubs in the sixth inning with a hip injury. Covering first base, Alvarez landed awkwardly trying to grab a high throw from Garrett Jones and strained his left hip.

In 5 1/3 innings, Alvarez allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits. He struck out five and walked none.

Officially, Alvarez is day to day.


Henderson Alvarez tosses third complete-game shutout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez made quick work of the Rays Tuesday, as he tossed his third complete game in a 1-0 win.

Alvarez didn't have much of a margin for error, and held the Rays' offense entirely in check, after leaving his last start with an elbow injury. He limited the Rays to just eight hits -- seven of which were just singles. He did not walk one batter while striking out five, and throwing just 88 pitches in his complete-game shutout.

Alvarez now has three complete-game shutouts this season, and has thrown 90 or fewer pitches in each. He lowered his ERA to 2.62 with the outing, and most importantly proved his elbow scare was not a concern. He carries a 3-3 record into his next outing, set for Sunday against the Cubs.


Henderson Alvarez takes the ball


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez will start as expected Tuesday against the Rays. He was removed from his last start with a stiff elbow.

Alvarez is 2-3 with a 2.97 ERA in 11 starts.


Henderson Alvarez cleared for Tuesday start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez has been cleared to make his start Tuesday. 

Alvarez was able to get through a 20-pitch bullpen session. The session was pain-free, and Alvarez will start Tuesday against the Rays. Alvarez was removed from his last start due to some elbow stiffness, but said it was precautionary, and expected to make his next start. 

Through 66 2/3 innings, Alvarez has a 2.97 ERA. 


Henderson Alvarez abandons new slider grip


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez will throw his usual between-start bullpen session Saturday, and should have a good idea of his status for Tuesday's start after that. At this point, however, he feels good about his chances of taking the mound.

Alvarez threw off flat ground Friday without incident, and manager Mike Redmond and pitching coach Chuck Hernandez told the Miami Herald they see no reason to be concerned about his elbow. Alvarez left his last start with stiffness, but there appears to be no structural damage in the elbow at this point. 

Additionally, Alvarez told the Sun-Sentinel he thinks he knows the source of his elbow troubles in the last outing. He was experimenting with a new grip on his slider, which caused some discomfort and forced his exit after just 62 pitches. 

"The pain was from a grip, a slider I started throwing," Alvarez said. "I knew it wasn't anything to worry about. I was just experimenting there to see if it was any good."

He will abandon the grip moving forward. 


Henderson Alvarez expects to be fine for next start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2014) Marlins promising starter Henderson Alvarez claims that tightness in his elbow that knocked him out after five innings and 62 pitches of his Wednesday outing will not prevent him from making his next start Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

Mike Redmond echoed those sentiments. "I think he's fine," Redmond told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "He wanted to keep pitching but we wanted to make sure it didn't become anything serious. He just had mentioned that it had tightened up on him."

Alvarez has emerged as one of the better starters in the National League. He owns a fine 2.97 ERA with just 16 walks in 66 2/3 innings. His 2-3 record indicates a lack of run support.


Henderson Alvarez removed Wednesday with elbow stiffness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez gave up five hits in five scoreless innings while striking out two Wednesday, but he was removed after throwing just 62 pitches due to right elbow stiffness, the team announced.

The Marlins said that Alvarez was removed for precautionary reasons, though he figures to undergo testing on the injured elbow. He owns a 2.97 ERA and 40:16 K:BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings.
