Miami Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez left his Wednesday night start against the Washington Nationals after five scoreless innings due to stiffness in his throwing elbow, reports Dayn Perry of CBSSports.

Alvarez is having a strong season for the Marlins, with two complete-game shutouts to go along with a 2.97 ERA and a 2.38 strikeouts-to-walks ratio.

The Marlins have already lost one young starting pitcher to elbow trouble this season after Jose Fernandez underwent Tommy John surgery.

The 24-year old Alvarez has had some injury trouble already in his career, losing time to inflammation in his shoulder last season and dealing with an elbow issue in 2012.
