6/3/2014 1:21:00 PM
Description: Miami right-hander Henderson Alvarez (elbow stiffness) is set to start Tuesday night against Tampa Bay after he threw a pain-free, 20-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.
Insight: Alvarez has been one of baseball's more reliable starters this year, posting a 2.97 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over 11 starts, but the fact that's he's coming off an injury-shortened start (62 pitches) coupled with his horrendous lifetime numbers against the Rays (0-5, 6.28 ERA in 28 2/3 IP) makes him a risky play.

Insight: The Marlins didn't score their first run until the bottom of the ninth when Giancarlo Stanton came around on a bases loaded wild pitch with two outs. Alvarez allowed just one walk in nine otherwise flawless innings (Miami also made one fielding error). It's the first no-hitter by a Marlin since Anibal Sanchez threw one in 2006.

Description: Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez had his fourth straight strong outing Tuesday at Pittsburgh.
Insight: Alvarez gave up six hits and three earned runs with zero walks and six strikeouts over seven innings in a no decision. The right-hander gives up a lot of hits and doesn't strike many batters out so he's going to be walking a fine line in most starts, but at least he has avoided the homer problem he had last season (1.39 HR/9 2012, 0.00 HR/9 2013).
 
7/21/2013 7:28:00 PM
Description: Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez limited the Brewers to five hits over seven scoreless innings in a no decision Sunday.
Insight: Alvarez has allowed 27 hits in his first 24 2/3 innings this season, but he hasn't given up a homer and owns a 3.28 ERA. Alvarez gave up 29 homers in 187 1/3 innings last season with the Blue Jays.

Description: Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will come off the DL and start Thursday against the Braves.
Insight: Alvarez has missed the entire season due to shoulder inflammation. He was included in the big Marlins-Blue Jays trade this offseason after going 9-14 with a 4.85 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP in 187 1/3 innings last season. Fantasy owners can ignore him.

Insight: He's dealing with inflammation in his right shoulder. Alvarez got lit up in 31 starts for the Blue Jays in 2012 (4.85 ERA, .290 opponent batting average). We're not expecting him to fare much better in the equally competitive NL East.

Description: Toronto righthander Henderson Alvarez came out of Monday night's game in the fourth inning after injuring his left shin.
Insight: X-rays came back negative so it's just a bruise. Alvarez (7-11, 4.97 ERA) should be fine to make his next start Saturday against the Rays.
 
6/26/2012 4:30:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays starter Henderson Alvarez (elbow) will undergo an MRI Tuesday, according to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca.
Insight: Alvarez left his start Monday against Boston with elbow pain after his 96th pitch of the night, though the pain dissipated 30 minutes later. Toronto has placed three pitchers -- Brandon Morrow, Kyle Drabek, Drew Hutchison -- on the disabled list in the last two weeks, though it doesn't look like Alvarez will need to join them after initial tests came back positive.
