Henderson Alvarez said the MRI performed on his right shoulder Friday showed nothing more than inflammation, and he is hoping to be back on the mound when he’s scheduled to come off the 15-day disabled list during the team’s next homestand.

Alvarez said he is aiming to pitch against the Arizona Diamondbacks, who open a four-game series at Marlins Park on Aug. 14.

“I’m good. It’s just inflammation,” Alvarez said Saturday after the Marlins took batting practice. “There’s nothing there. I’m just going to do treatment to bring down the inflammation and go from there.”

Alvarez, 24, said he first began to feel discomfort in his shoulder when he pitched two weeks ago in Atlanta.

“The day before it started to hurt, but I kept pitching and doing my treatment to see if it went away. But it didn’t get better. I pitched against Washington and it bothered me, but I kept pitching,” he said. “I talked with [pitching coach] Chuck Hernandez and the trainers so we could avoid something worse.”

Shoulder inflammation shelved Alvarez last season for the first three months of the season. Asked if it was the same type of injury, Alvarez said it wasn’t.
