Thu. July 24, 2014
News: Alvarez pitched eight strong innings at Atlanta on Thursday, allowing just two runs and six hits en route to his seventh win of the season. He issued one walk and struck out four, tossing 101 pitches. Impact: Alvarez left Saturday's game after just 2.2 innings when he took a one-hopper off his shin, but he looked just fine against the Braves on Thursday, with the only damage he allowed coming on a two-run homer off the bat of Chris Johnson. The young righty continues to induce ground balls at a prodigious clip (2.51 GB/FB ratio), and has an above average fastball in terms of velocity (93.6 mph), although that hasn't translated into many strikeouts this season. In any event, Alvarez has been a reliable and effective starter this year, and will look to keep things going in his next start against the Nationals.(RotoWire, )

News: Alvarez (leg) has been cleared to take the mound for his scheduled start Thursday vs. the Astros, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports. Impact: Alvarez was removed from Saturday's game after taking a one-hopper off the shin, but he apparently checked out fine when he was reevaluated Monday. The 24-year-old has produced a sparkling 2.64 ERA and 1.25 WHIP despite only whiffing 75 batters over 122.2 innings, but he could end up becoming a useful source for strikeouts Thursday. As a team, the Astros have struck out in a league-worst 23.7 percent of their plate appearances.(RotoWire, )

Miami said Alvarez sustained a bruised shin and is day to day.(STATS, 8:19pm)

News: Alvarez left Saturday's game against the Giants after being hit in the leg with a batted ball, Andrew Baggarly of Comcast SportsNet reports. The injury was revealed to be a shin contusion. Impact: Alvarez took a Joe Panik comebacker off the back of his left leg in the third inning. To that point, Alvarez had allowed two runs (one earned). It wasn't a good way to start the second half for the first-time All-Star.(RotoWire, )
