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 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 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 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, 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 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.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Limited activity over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro (oblique) won't swing a bat and likely won't throw for a couple of days, Christina De Nicola of reports.

He'll be able to run to stay in shape, but the Marlins aren't taking any chances with their No. 1 catcher this early in the spring. "We feel like it's something we caught it early enough," Mattingly said. "He didn't keep swinging, try to keep playing. Hopefully we're on top of it and it turns into a three-, four-, five-day thing instead of a three-week thing. But we'll see." If Alfaro avoids aggravating the oblique issue, he could return to action sometime next week.

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Clubs 18th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 10-3 loss to the Mets.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The backstop checked in with his 16th and 17th homers of the season, going yard in the second and sixth innings off Steven Matz as part of a five-RBI day. It's been a respectable if unspectacular campaign at the dish for Alfaro, who is slashing .263/.313/.421 over 125 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Crushes 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alfaro went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Giants.

The catcher broke open a scoreless tie in the top of the seventh inning by hammering a Madison Bumgarner curveball 473 feet to left-center field. It's Alfaro's first homer since Aug. 27 and his 15th of the year, and his .268/.312/.420 slash line is remarkably similar to the numbers he put up in Philadelphia last season.
