- Alvarez is expected to come off the DL to start Wednesday against the Braves. He has made four rehab starts in his recovery from his shoulder injury, allowing just three earned runs over 24.1 innings. Alvarez throws reasonably hard (93.3 mph average fastball in the big leagues over his career), though he's never been much of a strikeout pitcher. He'll benefit by the move from the AL East to the NL East, much as Scott Feldman has with the Cubs, if his stuff stays intact following the injury. The Marlins' rotation is considerably different than it was on Opening Day, with the return of Alvarez, Nathan Eovaldi and Jacob Turner. As long as his initial outings don't prove disastrous, Alvarez should have a semblance of job security, as Ricky Nolasco is likely to be dealt before the trade deadline.
