Sandy Alcantara News
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Sandy Alcantarawill miss his scheduled start on Wednesday against the Nationals in Washington after being placed on the bereavement list. There was reportedly a death in Alcantara's family, and he has flown back to Miami. The 25-year-old righty was coming off of a rough start against the Phillies in which he gave up three earned runs on four hits and only lasted three innings. The team has not announced yet who will take Alcantara's spot in the rotation.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara got off to a rough start for the second half in his start in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader. Alcantara lasted just three innings, allowing five runs (three earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out three. He didn't give up a ton of hard contact, but the Phillies hitters were finding grass with many of their swings. Alcantara's ERA rose to 3.23 and it took him 80 pitches (50 strikes) to get just the 12 outs.
Miami Marlins starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara struggled against the Los Angeles Dodgers again on Thursday. This was a much better start than his previous one against the Dodgers, which was the worst start of his career. On Thursday, he lasted only four innings, allowing five runs (three earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out five. The loss dropped his record to 5-8 and lifted his ERA to 3.09. He's allowed 13 runs to the Dodgers in two starts and 34 runs to everyone else in 17 other starts. With no more games against the Dodgers left on the schedule for the Marlins, Alcantara is a good bet to have a strong second half.
The results do not seem to match the ability for Miami Marlins starting pitcherSandy Alcantara so far in his young career. He has a moderate career strikeout rate of 19.2% despite having big-time velocity and a deep pitching arsenal. He has shown consistent improvement in his career that culminated in a really strong 3.00 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with a 22.7% strikeout rate over 42 innings in 2020. His pitch mix begins with a hard sinker that makes his 49% ground-ball rate seem completely repeatable, and he has a four-seamer and two breaking balls to go with it. That mixture makes us believe there is room for the strikeouts to improve and for Alcantara to have some really great seasons in the future. He may just be a few minor adjustments away from a huge breakout, and he remains cheap in drafts. The time to buy is now.
