Marlins' Alvarez cleared to start Tuesday; reliever Capps to get 2nd opinion on elbow injury

  • Print

MIAMI - Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez has been cleared to pitch Tuesday after complaining of a sore elbow in his most recent start. The severity of right-hander Carter Capps's elbow injury is still unclear.

Capps will seek a second opinion on an elbow sprain that sent him to the disabled list Tuesday. Capps has pitched in nine games in relief and already has been ruled out at least a month.

The news was better for Alvarez, who was examined by a doctor and played catch Friday. He is to throw a bullpen session Saturday.

"I didn't feel anything bad," he said through a translator. "I'm fine."

Barring a setback, he'll start Tuesday against Tampa Bay following an extra day of rest.

"He's good to go, which is great news," manager Mike Redmond said.

Right-hander Randy Wolf will start Monday against the Rays.

Alvarez threw five innings Wednesday at Washington and left with a 4-0 lead because his elbow was bothering him. He's 2-3 with a 2.97 ERA and two shutouts in 11 starts.
