With Henderson Alvarez out on the market, 10 teams are currently showing interest in the free agent right-hander, according to a report from Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

Alvarez had been non tendered by the Miami Marlins earlier in the week as the deadline was scheduled for the first of December which would have been on Wednesday at midnight. 

Henderson had problems for majority of 2015 as he started experiencing pain in his throwing elbow just two weeks in to the season and had an MRI which revealed no major structural damage.

He was then placed on the disabled list on the 22nd of April with shoulder inflammation which is what triggered the fact that something was wrong. 

This followed him through to the all star break in which he was said to return as he was expected to be headed on a rehab assignment which was postponed due to renewed soreness which had been effecting him, keeping the 25-year-old out of action for a time in which had not been placed as the team was keeping an eye on him, having him monitored at all times. 

On the 8th of September, Miami placed him transferred him from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL after a diagnosis was made that he had been pitching with a partially-torn UCL.

He then flew out to Florida where he went in to visit renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews who recommended a procedure in which Alvarez did not accept. This later led to him opting to undergo surgery which was announced on the 28th of July.

As for a sum up of his injury shortened season, Henderson made just four starts at the big league level. During his healthy and successful 2014, he pitched with an ERA of 2.65 having thrown in a total of 187 innings.

Alvarez has since been activated and placed back on the club's 40-man roster as he will work through the rehab side of things throughout the winter in which he had been told he could begin on the 1st of December.

This being said, Henderson will not be ready for the start of spring training 2016 though he could very well be back in time for Opening Day. If he is not, this puts him on track to re-join the rotation not long after, should he not be ready to come back.
