Alvarez transferred to 60-day DL

SAN DIEGO — Henderson Alvarez’s pitching debut with the Marlins will now come sometime after the All-Star Break, at the earliest.

The Marlins on Tuesday morning announced Alvarez is being transferred to the 60-day disabled list. The transaction was the corresponding move to the club placing second baseman Donovan Solano on the 15-day disabled list with a left intercostal strain. Nick Green had his contract selected from Triple-A New Orleans.

Miami needed to create 40-man roster space. The team did so by transferring Alvarez to the 60-day DL.

Alvarez opened the season on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. His recovery had a setback recently, and on Monday, he began playing light catch.

The Marlins acquired Alvarez from the Blue Jays last November.
