Player Notes
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Henderson Alvarez has been pitching through a "90 percent tear" of his right ulnar collateral ligament "for years."

Advice: This is the first we've heard about a UCL issue for Alvarez, although he had a brief elbow problem last season and there were whispers when he went on the disabled list last month that he had an elbow injury in addition to a shoulder ailment. There have been some that have pitched through ligament damage in the past, although it's hard to imagine anyone pitching with as much of a tear that Alvarez apparently has. It certainly makes him a medical red flag moving forward.

Henderson Alvarez, making his first start since April 12, struggled against the Braves and took the loss after allowing six runs in 5 1/3 innings on Sunday.

Advice: To be fair, there was nothing Alvarez could have done to outduel opposing starter Shelby Miller besides actually throwing a no-hitter. Nevertheless, the Marlins were hoping for a better performance in his first start back after a stint on the DL due to right shoulder inflammation. He allowed nine hits and walked two while striking out only two. Five of the six runs scored in a long second inning. Alvarez, with a 6.23 ERA, will look to improve in his next start, which comes at home against the Orioles.

Fri, May 22 Rotoworld
Marlins activated RHP Henderson Alvarez from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: He'll make his return to the rotation on Sunday against the Braves. Alvarez needed just one rehab start even though he missed over a month of action with inflammation in his pitching shoulder, but the Fish thought he was ready after tossing six shutout frames on Tuesday.

Sun, May 17 Rotoworld
Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list to start for the Marlins on Sunday.

Advice: He has been sidelined since mid-April due to right shoulder inflammation. While it has yet to be confirmed, it sounds as though Tom Koehler will be shifted to the bullpen to make room in the Marlins rotation.

Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) struck out five over six scoreless innings in a rehab start with High-A Jupiter on Tuesday.

Advice: He allowed just four hits and didn't walk anyone. The Marlins haven't officially committed to it yet, but there would seem to be a good chance that Alvarez will be ready to rejoin the rotation on Sunday versus the Braves. He's been out since mid-April with right shoulder inflammation.
