Player Profile: Henderson Alvarez

I have two cards of Henderson Alvarez. This one is from 2013 Topps.

Playing career: Henderson Alvarez pitched for the Blue Jays and Marlins from 2011 to 2015. A no-hitter with the Marlins in 2013 foreshadowed a career year in 2014, when he went 12-7 with a 2.65 ERA. He was named the Marlins opening day starter for 2015 but was injured and out for the season before the end of April.

Where he is now: Signed with the A’s for 2016.

My memories: I remember hearing about the no-hitter and having no idea who he was. That’s all I remember him for.

Google Autocomplete results: He is first when you type Henderson A, ahead of Henderson Apartments Rutgers, referring to campus housing. There do not appear to be any other prominent Henderson Alvarezes.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Keto Anderson.
