Alvarez allows three runs in second rehab start

PHOENIX -- Making his second Minor League rehab start on Tuesday for Class A Advanced Jupiter, Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez tossed five innings against the Pirates' affiliate, allowing three runs on five hits.

In his first outing last week, the 23-year-old threw five shutout frames.

Acquired from the Blue Jays last November as part of the 12-player trade, Alvarez went on the 15-day disabled list the day before the season opened with right shoulder inflammation and was transferred to the 60-day DL in early May after suffering a setback. He was initially slated to be Miami's No. 4 starter.

"He was good, got his pitches in," manager Mike Redmond said. "He pitched really well. They got a couple runs off him in the first, but after that, he was fine."

Manager Mike Redmond said on Monday that Alvarez might only need one or two more rehab starts before making his season debut with Miami.
