The Marlins received some bad news on Monday, when it was announced that Henderson Alvarez would be placed on the disabled list.  After his start on Sunday, Alvarez had inflammation in his right elbow and shoulder.  Here is what Mike Redmond had to say on Alvarez's injury, via MLB.com's Joe Frisaro:

"It's hard to say. I think right now it's more calming down the inflammation and getting him feeling good and healthy," Miami manager Mike Redmond said. "How long it'll be, I don't know. That's kind of the unknown right now. It's really up to him and how quickly he feels better. We're going to make sure that he feels good and confident before he goes out and pitches again."

The Fish made a flurry of roster moves yesterday along with placing Alvarez on the disabled list.  They recalled J.T. Realmuto, Carter Capps, and Jose Urena.  They also selected the contract of Reid Brignac from AAA.  To account for these call-ups, the Marlins moved Aaron crow from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL.  Miami also placed Jeff Mathis and Don Kelly on the disabled list.  Finally, David Phelps was placed on the paternity list.

With each pitcher making their debut through a week in the season, the early report on the starting rotation is a positive one.

After one week and six games, here is what we know so far about this Marlins ball club.

We've seen pies to the face and gatorade baths, but what the Marlins did after their walk-off victory over the weekend was new and so awesome.

Around the League

New MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said that he was open to an All-Star game being held in Toronto in the near future.

After multiple players tested positive for stanozolol,  MLB is investigating as to whether the cases were connected.

Josh Hamilton is expected to meet with Angels manager Mike Scioscia during the team's upcoming road trip.  Hamilton is currently rehabbing from a recent relapse in his recovery from drug addiction.

Mets fans are not happy with their owner, and are certainly not shy about it.
