Alvarez, sidelined with right shoulder inflammation, has resumed throwing and should be throwing from a mound by the end of the week. Manager Mike Redmond called this news "a good sign" and added, "We're hoping he'll be back on the mound throwing a bullpen by the end of the week." Alvarez had a solid spring, earning a 3.55 ERA and 11:3 K:BB ratio before being placed on the 15-day DL on March 31. He should be able to return before the end of the month, but how much his injury has affected his readiness for the season will determine his fantasy value. When he returns, Alex Sanabia will likely be sent to the minors.
Capuano is the likely option to replace Zack Greinke, who is expected to miss eight weeks after surgery to repair a broken left collarbone, in the Dodgers' rotation.
