Henderson Alvarez coughed up five runs over 6 1/3 innings in a 6-1 setback against the Angels on Wednesday.
It was another shaky outing for Alvarez, who allowed eight hits, including a pair of solo homers. In his last start, he became short breath in Denver's altitude, but everything returned to normal when he returned to sea level. So that's two off nights in a row for the young hurler, who has too much talent to make a habit of it. Now 10-6 with a 2.75 ERA, Alvarez gets the Mets in his next start. Aug 28 - 1:32 AM

Henderson Alvarez gave up four runs in six innings of work on Friday.

Alvarez was the beneficiary of thirteen runs by the Marlins. It was a shaky outing, as he allowed ten hits, two of which left the yard. Justin Morneau hit a two-run shot in the third and Corey Dickerson hit another two-run homer in the sixth. Still, Alvarez picked up the win. Despite the shaky outing, he's got a 2.57 ERA and 1.22 WHIP going, in addition to a 94/28 K/BB ratio. He'll try to improve on this outing when he faces the Angels in his next start.

Henderson Alvarez pitched seven innings of one-run baseball on Saturday, striking out six and walking one.

This was Alvarez's first start since being placed on the DL with right shoulder inflammation. Alvarez only missed the minimum fifteen games and appeared no worse for wear on Saturday. The Marlins won 2-1 thanks to a Cliff Pennington error, moving Alvarez's record to 9-6 on the season. Alvarez lowered his ERA to 2.43 with the effort. He has a 89/28 K/BB ratio this season.

Marlins activated RHP Henderson Alvarez from the 15-day disabled list.

The All-Star hurler spent just over the minimum amount of time required on the disabled list due to his right shoulder inflammation. He will rejoin the Marlins rotation on Saturday against the Diamondbacks, returning to a 2.48 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 83/27 K/BB ratio.

Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) is aiming to rejoin the Marlins' rotation on August 14, the first day he's eligible.

An MRI on Alvarez's right shoulder confirmed that he only has inflammation. He missed three month with a shoulder issue last season, but the righty said it's not nearly as bad this time around. "Dr. [ Lee] Kaplan [of University of Miami Health System], he just told me to rest my arm for a few days and in like five or six days I could throw to see how it felt," Alvarez said. "For me I’m sad that I have to be out. At the same time, it’s good because I can avoid whatever bigger issue and just rest so that inflammation goes away quickly."

Marlins placed RHP Henderson Alvarez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 30, with right shoulder inflammation.

Alvarez threw seven scoreless innings in his last outing, but he evidently must have been feeling soreness then or during his between-starts bullpen session. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Jacob Turner had been set to be bounced from the rotation follow the Jarred Cosart addition, but he'll now start Sunday in Alvarez's place.

Henderson Alvarez threw seven scoreless innings in the Marlins' 3-0 shutout of the Nationals on Tuesday.

Alvarez had one sticky situation in the second inning that required a bit of magic -- and some luck -- but he otherwise quieted the Nationals over his seven innings. The right-hander allowed just three hits and walked four on the evening. The All-Star moved to 8-5 with a 2.48 ERA through 22 starts this season, and he'll square off with the Reds on Sunday.
Jul 29 - 11:06 PM

Henderson Alvarez allowed two runs over eight innings in a 3-2 win against the Braves on Thursday.

Alvarez made one big mistake, allowing a two-run home run to Chris Johnson in the second inning. Other than that, he stymied the Braves, allowing six hits overall while walking one and striking out four. In the process, he lowers his ERA a couple of points to 2.62 and is now carrying a 1.23 WHIP and a 79/23 K/BB ratio. He'll face the Nationals at home in his next start.
Jul 24 - 10:03 PM

Henderson Alvarez (shin) has been cleared to make his scheduled start on Thursday in Houston.

Alvarez had to leave Saturday's outing after being hit on the left shin by a comebacker, but he only has a bruise and is feeling much better. The All-Star has put up a 2.64 ERA over 20 starts for the Marlins this season.

Henderson Alvarez left his start Saturday against the Giants because of a left shin contusion.

Jul 19 - 7:57 PM

Henderson Alvarez was named to the National League All-Star team as an injury replacement for Jordan Zimmermann.

Alvarez will be the second member of the Marlins headed to Minneapolis, joining teammate Giancarlo Stanton. He's certainly had a deserving first half, registering a 6-4 record, 2.63 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 73/22 K/BB ratio over his 120 innings of work.
Jul 12 - 1:37 PM

Henderson Alvarez was knocked around for six runs over five innings in a loss to the Mets on Friday.

Alvarez entered Friday's outing with 18 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings against the Mets, but they finally managed to get the best of him. He struck out three and walked none en route to his first loss since May 11. Even with the clunker, he'll finish off the first half with an excellent 2.63 ERA across 19 starts.
Jul 11 - 10:02 PM

Henderson Alvarez allowed one run on five hits over seven innings as the Marlins beat the Cardinals 8-4 on Sunday.

Alvarez continued a string of impressive starts, allowing only a solo home run to Kolten Wong on the afternoon. He also went 3-for-4 at the dish to boot. The right-hander hasn't allowed more than two runs in a start in his past nine outings, lowering his ERA to 2.27. Alvarez has one more start before the All-Star break, and that will come Saturday at the Mets.
