Marlins' Alvarez To Miss First Turn Sunday
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Miami Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez will miss his first scheduled start of spring training because of an infection in his right shin.
Alvarez had the infection drained at a hospital Tuesday. He was at Roger Dean Stadium in street clothes Wednesday and walking with the aid of crutches as the Marlins went through their morning workouts.
The 23-year-old right-hander had been scheduled to start Sunday's game against Washington. The Marlins did not provide a timetable for his return, but Alvarez said he could miss up to a week.
