Number 1: Henderson Alvarez

While Alvarez wasn’t traded away, he stands as yet another piece in Miami’s rotation who underperformed. But in Alvarez’s defense, he hasn’t had the chance to perform, which makes him Miami’s most disappointing player of 2015.

With Jose Fernandez on the disabled list to begin 2015, Henderson Alvarez stepped in as the team’s ace. However, Alvarez made just four starts this season before being placed on the DL with a season ending injury.

In those four starts, the 25-year-old right-hander went 0-4 with a 6.45 ERA. Alvarez owned a K/9 of just 3.63. Apparently, Alvarez had been pitching with right shoulder inflammation all year.

For how much Miami expected out of Alvarez, he proves to be 2015’s most disappointing player.
