Sandy Alcantara News
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara managed to go only 4 2/3 innings pitched in the Marlins' 3-2 loss to the Padres on Friday night. Alcantara threw 94 pitches, allowing two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five. It was the second start in a row for Alcantara in which he failed to register a quality start, having allowed five earned runs his last time out against the Mariners. Despite the last two outings, Alcantara remains a must-start option, though the walks are a bit troubling so far this year. Over six starts in 2022, Alcantara owns a 3.03 ERA, a 1.32 WHIP, and a 31:16 K:BB ratio in 35 2/3 IP. He lines up to next face the Diamondbacks on the road on Wednesday in a very favorable matchup.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara is off to a fantastic start to the 2022 campaign. Over four starts, he's gone 2-0 with a 1.78 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. He's earned a quality start in three of four outings. The 26-year-old has been doing a great job at minimizing hard contact. He's allowing a hard-hit rate of just 32.4%, down from 39.4% last year. He's only yielded two barrels across 68 batted balls, good for a 2.9% barrel rate that ranks in the 82nd percentile. The right-hander will look to keep rolling in his fifth start of the year, which will come on Sunday against the Seattle Mariners.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara went 6 1/3 solid innings pitched in the Marlins' 4-3 win over the Phillies on Thursday. Alcantara picked up the win, allowing only two earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five. Alcantara now owns a 3.18 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over 11 1/3 IP in two starts on the young season. Thursday's performance for Alcantara was a much better outing than his first start of the season against the Giants in which he walked five batters over five innings. On the season, he owns a 9:6 K:BB ratio which should certainly improve in line with his 2021 K:BB ratio of 201:50 over 205 2/3 IP. Alcantara next lines up to face the Cardinals at home on Wednesday and remains a must-start SP option in all formats.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara is starting to establish himself as one of the bright young stars in the game. He has seen improvement every season since his debut in 2017 and finished 2021 going 9-15 with a 3.19 ERA and 201 strikeouts in 205 innings. The combination of strikeout potential and durability is what makes Alcantara such a good pick in 2022.Only four pitchers tossed 200 innings last season, and of those four, Alcantara had the highest chase rate being in the 95th percentile. His WOBA against has improved every year, going from .375 in 2017 to .279 last season and he is continuing to figure out who he is as a big-league pitcher. He essentially eliminated throwing the curveball last season which had a 1.167 SLG against in 2021. He replaced that mostly with an increase in changeup usage (23.5% usage) and had only a .346 SLG against the pitch last season. Those 15 losses are certainly a concern as the Marlins don't figure to be a powerhouse in 2022, but there is still a lot to like about the 26-year-old just entering his prime.With an ADP around pick 41, he figures to return value at that spot and should be looked at as a high-end SP2 or low-end SP1 if you want to start your draft with mostly hitters.
