Player Notes
An MRI taken Tuesday on Henderson Alvarez's right shoulder showed no major structural damage.

Advice: Alvarez was placed on the disabled list April 22 with shoulder inflammation. He had also been pitching through a partially-torn UCL in his right elbow. There is no timetable for his return to the Marlins' rotation.

Marlins placed RHP Henderson Alvarez on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Advice: In addition to the shoulder injury, Alvarez also revealed this week that he has been pitching through a partially torn UCL in his right elbow. The 25-year-old owns a 6.23 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 7/3 K/BB ratio in 17 1/3 innings on the season. The timetable for his return to the mound is unclear at this point.

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.
