    • Nationals' Henderson Alvarez: Assigned to minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alvarez was reassigned to minor-league camp on Saturday, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports. Alvarez was in camp as a non-roster invitee but was never likely to make the team. He's made just seven big-league starts over the last four seasons, so his chances of making a significant impact this year are low.

    • Alvarez signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Monday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports. The deal includes an invitation to spring training, per Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post. Alvarez spent the 2018 season with Quintana Roo of the Mexican League, posting a 3.58 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 64:24 K:BB across 120.2 innings (19 starts). He owns a career 3.82 ERA across parts of five big-league seasons, though he hasn't been effective at the major-league level since his All-Star campaign with the Marlins in 2014.

    • Henderson Alvarez: Moves to Mexican Baseball League
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alvarez signed with Tigres de Quintana Roo in the Mexican Baseball League on Friday, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports. Alvarez has thrown just 14.2 major-league innings since 2015, all with the Phillies last year. His strikeout rate, which never went higher than 15.4 percent in any season, has been at 9 percent or below in each of his past two major-league seasons. The 27-year-old has a 3.82 career ERA in 577.2 major-league innings, an All-Star appearance, and a 12th-place finish in a Cy Young race, but couldn't find a job in Major League Baseball due to a combination of his injury history and lack of strikeouts.

    • Henderson Alvarez: Hits open market
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alvarez cleared waivers and will in turn become a free agent. Alvarez signed a minor-league deal with Philadelphia in August after pitching with the independent Long Island Ducks, and recorded three big-league starts during the month of September. During those outings, he allowed seven earned runs off 14 hits and 11 walks while striking out six in 14.2 innings. The right-hander hasn't appeared in over five games since the 2014 season with the Marlins, and will look to latch on with a club in the coming months.

    • Alvarez allowed three runs on five hits and six walks over 4.2 innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Saturday. He did not record a strikeout. His control completely left him late in the outing -- Alvarez issued five walks over the fourth and fifth innings. He was able to minimize the damage, but this was a poor way to end the season, as Alvarez was essentially auditioning for other clubs. The former All-Star spent a good chunk of the year in independent ball after a long battle with shoulder issues.
