As relayed by Joe Frisaro, the Marlins beat reporter for MLB.com …

Alvarez wound up missing over a month with inflammation in his right shoulder. He opened the season 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA in 12 innings (two starts) but the Fish will be very glad to have him back. Alvarez posted a 2.65 ERA in 187 innings last season, earning his first All-Star nod and a few Cy Young Award votes. He tossed five scoreless innings in his one rehab start at High-A Jupiter. The 25-year-old right-hander will take the bump in Sunday ‘s series finale against the visiting Braves as Miami looks to avoid a three-game sweep.
