Miami Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez left Monday's game against the New York Mets in the third inning after throwing only 40 pitches and showing lowered velocity, according to Juan Martinez of the Sun Sentinal. He was relieved by lefty Brad Hand. The team announced Alvarez has a strained oblique and is day-to-day.

Alvarez, who was a 2014 NL All-Star, made 25 starts this season prior to Monday, posting a record of 10-6 with a 2.75 ERA (ERA+ 139) and a WHIP of 1.229. The righty was on the DL with shoulder inflamation from July 30-August 18, and lost the first half of the 2013 season with the same complaint, making only 17 starts.
