Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro (head) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Red Sox, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports.

Alfaro clubbed two homers before exiting Wednesday's contest after being struck in the mask by a foul ball, though he was cleared of a concussion after the game. Chad Wallach will take over behind the plate for Miami and bat ninth.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Clear of concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro cleared the concussion protocol after leaving Wednesday's win over the Red Sox, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The 27-year-old was pulled after being struck by a foul ball in the mask, but he still did plenty of damage before exiting, going 2-for-3 with two homers and four RBI. The Marlins could keep Alfaro out of the lineup for a day or two if the team wants to play it safe, but he shouldn't miss any time beyond that.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Gets Monday off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Alfaro started in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader with Philadelphia, going 0-for-1 with a walk. Though backup Chad Wallach started the second contest, the Marlins will have him check back in behind the plate for Monday's afternoon contest, giving Alfaro some additional time to rest up. Expect Alfaro to re-enter the lineup in Tuesday's series opener versus the Red Sox.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies.

Alfaro started behind the plate in Game 1 and went 0-for-1 with a walk. Chad Wallach will catch for the Marlins in the nightcap.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Resting for afternoon game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro will not start the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Catchers very rarely start twice in one day, so it's no surprise to see Alfaro sit here. Chad Wallach takes over behind the plate in his absence, though Alfaro should return to the lineup for the nightcap.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Breaks slump with two-hit game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

Alfaro entered the contest having gone 1-for-17 over his previous six games but was able to break through with a pair of hits in the win. He notched his first homer of the season with a 415-foot blast in the third inning and added another RBI with a single in the fourth. Alfaro has had a hard time getting going at the plate after opening the season on the COVID-19 injured list. Through 55 plate appearances, he is slashing .180/.255/.280.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Hits bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro is not in Sunday's starting lineup, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Alfaro will take a breather as the Marlins have a day game after Saturday night's contest. Chad Wallach will take his place behind the dish and bat ninth.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Two hits in Monday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Mets.

The multi-hit performance was his first of the year, as was his steal. Alfaro hasn't been able to get going at the plate since coming off the COVID-19 list, slashing .207/.281/.276 through nine games, but Monday's effort may be a sign that he's finding his timing.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro is not in the lineup Sunday against the Rays. Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Alfaro started the past three games and will receive a day off after going 1-for-10 with four strikeouts. Chad Wallach will start behind the plate Sunday for the Marlins.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Sitting nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Alfaro started behind the plate in Game 1 and went 0-for-2 with a run scored. Brian Navarreto will bat ninth and catch for Trevor Rogers in the matinee.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals, Andre Fernandez of Sirius XM Radio reports.

Alfaro caught the first game of Saturday's doubleheader and was set to sit out the second game, but he was forced into action when Francisco Cervelli exited after two innings with a concussion. Manager Don Mattingly may just want to be cautious with Alfaro's initial workload since the 27-year-old just returned to action this weekend for his 2020 debut after missing nearly a month of action while recovering from COVID-19. Brian Navarreto will spell Alfaro behind the dish Sunday.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: On bench Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nations, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Alfaro started at catcher in the matinee and went 0-for-3 with one strikeout. Francisco Cervelli will start behind the plate in the nightcap.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Officially ready for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro was activated off the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

The 27-year-old tested positive for the virus before Opening Day and was placed on the injured list, but he resumed official workouts earlier this week and is now back on the active roster. Alfaro is expected to reclaim his starting role behind the plate, shifting Francisco Cervelli to reserve duty.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Resumes workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro was one of 18 Marlins that tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this season who received clearance Saturday to resume baseball activities at the team's alternate training site in Jupiter, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Alfaro was one of the first Miami players who was known to have tested positive, as the team placed him on the injured list before the team's ill-fated season-opening series in Philadelphia. Though he's now made a full recovery from the coronavirus, the three-plus weeks of activity that he missed while waiting to clear all protocols means he'll likely need several days worth of workouts before Miami deems him ready to return from the IL. Once he's activated, Alfaro is expected to unseat Francisco Cervelli as the Marlins' top backstop.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Out after positive test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro is on the injured list due to a positive COVID-19 test, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

He will need back-to-back negative tests to be cleared to rejoin the team. In addition to Alfaro, Jose Urena, Garrett Cooper and Harold Ramirez have also tested positive. Francisco Cervelli and Chad Wallach will handle the catching duties for now.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Absence likely virus-related
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro's placement on the injured list Friday is likely due to COVID-19, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

The Marlins haven't officially confirmed the reason for Alfaro's absence, but manager Don Mattingly's refusal to address the reasoning for the move directly parallels the non-answers given by teams in other known coronavirus cases. Francisco Cervelli will be the Marlins' top catcher in his absence.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro was placed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons Friday.

Alfaro battled an oblique strain back in spring training but was deemed fully healthy in early April, and there's been no indication that the issue has returned. Francisco Cervelli will be the Marlins' top catcher while he remains sidelined.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Deemed fully healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill confirmed Thursday that Alfaro (oblique) has regained full health since the MLB season was suspended in mid-March, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

Had the regular season begun March 26 as initially planned, Alfaro might not have been ready to play, as he had been sidelined for a couple weeks before spring training was suspended due to a left oblique strain. The delayed start to the season has now afforded Alfaro ample time to move past the issue, so he should be a full participant in workouts when the Marlins are allowed to reconvene. He'll serve as the team's top backstop once again in 2020 after posting a .737 OPS in his first season with the club.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Should get healthy during hiatus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro (oblique) should be 100 percent healthy once MLB is ready to resume play.

The catcher was making steady progress in his recovery from a strained oblique suffered in late February, and per Joe Frisaro and Christina de Nicola of MLB.com, Alfaro had been set to take live batting practice last weekend before camp was suspended. He'll handle No. 1 duties behind the plate for Miami after slugging a career-high 18 homers in 2019.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Could be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that doctors have cleared Alfaro (oblique) for some light hitting and catching activities, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Mattingly relayed that he expects Alfaro's progression to full workouts will take "a little bit," but the Marlins are still anticipating that the backstop will be ready to go by the time Opening Day arrives March 26. Alfaro has been idle for the past week with a left oblique strain, an injury that can often carry a volatile recovery timeline. Alfaro is probably at least a week away from catching in Grapefruit League games, so in the meantime, top backup Francisco Cervelli should pick up some more work behind the plate.
