MLB Note - Philadelphia Phillies Alvarez, Henderson

Sep 23, 2017 - 8:31 AM RHP Henderson Alvarez had been sidelined since early 2015 by a pair of shoulder surgeries and may be auditioning for a chance to join the Philadelphia rotation next year. He started against Oakland on Sept. 17 and pitched five innings, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks, with four strikeouts. He faces Atlanta Saturday and the Braves have had good luck against him over the years. The right-hander has made eight starts in Atlanta and gone 1-4 with a 5.70 ERA. Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman is batting .333 (7-for-21) with three doubles and one homer against Alvarez.
