Marlins' Henderson Alvarez feels fine following bullpen session


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez said his right shoulder and elbow injuries did not experience any setbacks following a bullpen session he threw on Wednesday, according to the Miami Herald

"Everything until now in my arm has felt fine," Alvarez said. "The MRI said it was inflammation and tendonitis. My shoulder was overworked because I was pitching to make up for [the elbow]. But I feel good now."

Alvarez is dealing with shoulder inflammation and elbow tightness. He went on the disabled list on April 13. 

If everything goes well for Alvarez, the plan is for him to throw an extended spring training game next Thursday before beginning a rehab assignment on May 12. He then could return to the Marlins' rotation on May 17.

"We'll see how he feels [Thursday] and move forward," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Wednesday. "He's been long-tossing so he's been ready for this."

Redmond would not speculate on if or when Alvarez would make a rehab start. The Marlins' Opening Day starter posted a 4.50 ERA and 5:1 K:BB ratio in 12 innings over his first two starts before hitting the disabled list.

"(Wednesday) with Cosart throwing it's another big step, making sure his [blistered middle] finger gets through the grind of a game healthy," Redmond said.

Marlins' rotation likely set, Henderson Alvarez likely to pitch opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Marlins manager Mike Redmond strongly indicated Monday that the team's rotation is set, and though he did not make a formal announcement, Henderson Alvarez is expected to pitch Opening Day, MLB.com reports.

Alvarez will likely be followed in order by Jarred Cosart, Mat Latos, Dan Haren and Tom Koehler.

"I'd say we're probably set with those five guys, but I would never say 100 percent that we're set, because you never know what will happen," Redmond said.

Alvarez, Cosart and Koehler have struggled this spring while Haren and Latos have pitched well, but Redmond indicated he's not overly concerned with spring numbers.

"Part of spring training is not only building up your arm strength and your pitches," Redmond said, "it's working on things you're trying to sharpen up, whether it be Cosart working on his changeup, or guys working on secondary pitches they're trying to lock in for the season. I don't get overly excited about spring training outings. I look more at how they're executing pitches, whether they are keeping the ball down. We've missed up in the zone probably more than we have all spring, the last couple of starts for guys."
