Marlins lose to Orioles 8-5; Alvarez and Latos go on DL

MIAMI (AP) — Miami Marlins right-handers Henderson Alvarez and Mat Latos have been placed on the 15-day disabled list, the latest blow for a team that has lost eight consecutive games.

Alvarez (0-4) pitched five-plus innings and took the defeat in Friday’s 8-5 loss to Baltimore. He went on the DL with a recurrence of right shoulder inflammation, which sidelined him for a month earlier this year.

Latos, who is 1-4 with a 6.12 ERA, went on the DL with left knee inflammation. He underwent surgery on the knee in 2014, when he was limited to 16 starts with Cincinnati.

Roster and rotation replacements for the two starters will be announced Saturday.
