Injuries have taken a toll on some pitchers this week, but still make sure to keep these players around as they could be useful down the stretch of the 2015 season if they can get everything going in the right direction.
The Miami Marlins have lost Henderson Alvarez (SP, MIA) and Mat Latos (SP, MIA) for the foreseeable future due to shoulder inflammation and knee inflammation respectively. Alvarez was placed on the 15-day DL Saturday and has lost all four starts he has made so far in the 2015 season. According to reports, Alvarez also has a tear in his UCL, but has been pitching through that as well. The 6.45 ERA and 9:7 K:BB ratio are far off from his 2.65 ERA and 111:33 K:BB ratio he had last season. As for Latos, he has made just nine starts in 2015 after making all of 16 in 2014. The 6.12 ERA in 42.2 innings this season
