Athletics | Henderson Alvarez to rest for three weeks

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:33:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) received a platelet-rich injection in his right shoulder one week ago and will not be allowed to pick up a baseball for three more weeks. A recent MRI exam taken by Dr. James Andrews revealed there is no structural damage in his shoulder which would require additional surgery.

Fantasy Tip: In a best-case scenario, Alvarez won't resume throwing before mid-July and won't return to the majors before August. He should only continue to be stashed in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues if you can afford the roster space.

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 19:38:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) suffered a setback in his rehab start Saturday, June 18, and has been shut down.

Fantasy Tip: With each setback, it becomes less likely that Alvarez will provide any useful production for fantasy owners. Feel free to stash him if you have a DL spot, but don't count on him contributing.

Athletics | Henderson Alvarez could join rotation

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 16:43:35 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) said he will pitch five or six innings for Class AAA Nashville in his rehab start Saturday, June 18. Manager Bob Melvin added that Alvarez could potentially join the starting rotation after that rehab outing.

Fantasy Tip: The A's are starving for starting arms on their pitching staff, having already lost a bunch to injuries. It's so bad that Eric Surkamp is even one of the starting five right now. Thus, chances are Alvarez will indeed be headed to Oakland right after his upcoming rehab start -- barring any setbacks -- and he'll definitely be someone to monitor in many leagues for his potential. In deeper leagues, he may be worth stashing right now, in fact.

Athletics | Henderson Alvarez to rehab Monday

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:20:35 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will pitch two to three innings with Class AA Stockton Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is slowly working his way back and could join the A's rotation at the end of this month if he doesn't suffer any setbacks in his rehab assignment. The right-hander was an All-Star just two years ago with the Marlins. He won't strike out many, but his ground-ball inducing arsenal should play well at O.co Coliseum for owners in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Stash him now if he's available.

Athletics | Henderson Alvarez throwing sim game

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 15:32:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) is throwing a two-inning simulated game Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Look for Alvarez to pitch in at least several rehab starts before the A's activate him to make his season debut. He's not a heavy strikeout guy, but his ground-ball tendencies could play well in pitcher-friendly O.co Coliseum in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Stash him now if he's available in those setups.

Athletics | Henderson Alvarez throws Saturday

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 12:53:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) threw 35 pitches during a bullpen session Saturday, June 4, and felt good during the session.

Fantasy Tip: Alvarez probably will need to make a few rehab starts before he returns, but he may rejoin the rotation at some point this month. He should have value in AL-only leagues as well as some deeper mixed leagues.
