• On the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, Henderson Alvarez will make his second rehab start on Tuesday for Class A Jupiter and could rejoin the Marlins after just two more outings. The right-hander will throw up to 70 pitches.

• Marlins manager Mike Redmond sees a direct correlation between Juan Pierre's 12-game hitting streak and the club's improved offensive output of late.

"It's been huge, he still has great speed and he has the ability to change an inning with it," Redmond said. "We don't have a lot of those guys and he's done a nice job these last couple weeks being that catalyst."
