Marlins | Henderson Alvarez not throwing

Tue, 26 May 2015 21:13:38 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) has not been cleared to throw at this point and is focusing on strengthening his injured shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) does not appear to be close to returning, so he could miss several more weeks because of his injury. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid him until he is able to make a few starts.

Marlins | No structural damage for Henderson Alvarez

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:16:26 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez's (shoulder) MRI exam did not show any structural damage.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is likely to need more than the 15 days on the disabled list for his injury. He's no longer worth a roster spot in shallow mixed leagues. Jose Urena is taking Alvarez's roster spot and will be a very cheap starting pitcher option. However, with not much experience in a starting role, especially at the major league level, he's one to avoid for now.

Marlins | Henderson Alvarez placed on DL

Sat, 23 May 2015 10:07:15 -0700

The Miami Marlins have placed SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his right shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) finds himself on the disabled list for the second time this season, with the same injury which sidelined him for about a month earlier this year. After making the 2014 National League All-Star team, he has gone 0-4 with a 6.45 ERA in four starts in 2015. Stash him if you can afford the roster space in seasonal fantasy leagues, in the hopes that he can regain the form that made him so successful last year.

Sat, 16 May 2015 09:27:52 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will be the starting pitcher against the Atlanta Braves Sunday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has not pitched since April 12 because of his shoulder injury and could be on a pitch count Sunday. Alvarez is a risky option on FantasyScore, and owners may want to avoid using him.

Marlins | Henderson Alvarez to pitch for NOLA

Wed, 13 May 2015 22:26:50 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (elbow, shoulder) will make a second minor-league rehab start working for Class AAA New Orleans before he is activated from the 15-day disabled list, manager Mike Redmond said Wednesday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if this plan will change since Jarred Cosart left his start with the big club Wednesday. Avoid Alvarez until he can officially return and prove his health in a start or two.

Marlins | Henderson Alvarez nearing return

Wed, 13 May 2015 18:07:06 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) might return from the 15-day disabled list as soon as Sunday, May 17, or he might require a second rehab start. He worked six scoreless innings for Class A Jupiter, striking out five and walking none Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Henderson was the opening day starter, but he hasn't pitched since April 12 due to injury. Once Alvarez is back it will be the end of the line for David Phelps in the rotation.

Marlins | Henderson Alvarez sharp in rehab outing

Wed, 13 May 2015 08:52:55 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder, elbow) tossed six scoreless innings with Class A Jupiter (Fla.) Tuesday, May 12. He's been on the 15-day disabled list since April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Judging by his rehab start, Alvarez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) could be very close to rejoining the rotation in Miami. Once he does, one of Tom Koehler, David Phelps or Jarred Cosart could be in danger of losing their job. Alvarez had a 4.50 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in two losses to begin the season.

Marlins | Henderson Alvarez starting rehab assignment

Tue, 12 May 2015 15:20:59 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will start his rehab assignment with Class A Jupiter (Fla.) Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how many rehab starts the team wants Alvarez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) to make, but he could return to the rotation shortly. It's unclear who would get bumped from the rotation when Alvarez returns, but Jarred Cosart, Tom Koehler and David Phelps could be in danger.

Marlins | Henderson Alvarez has target for a return

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:11:20 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) is hopeful to rejoin the starting rotation Sunday, May 17, barring any setbacks. He will throw an extended spring training game Thursday, May 7, and then pitch a minor league rehab game Tuesday, May 12. "Everything until now in my arm has felt fine," Alvarez said Friday, May 1. "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."

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) lack of strikeouts is a serious hindrance to his upside in FantasyScore contests. He holds more value in seasonal leagues, because his ratios can help stabilize your rotation's bottom line. Continue to check back for updates on Alvarez's progress.

Marlins | Henderson Alvarez to throw bullpen

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 13:37:37 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, April 29, as he works back from right shoulder inflammation. He's expected to be activated from the disabled list in around two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is expected to immediately rejoin the starting rotation when he's activated from the DL. Continue to stash him in all leagues until then.
