Athletics' Raul Alcantara: Handed loss after allowing four runs Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara (1-2) was the pitcher of record in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Rangers, covering 4.1 innings and conceding four runs on five hits and two walks. He struck out two batters during the 80-pitch outing.

Injuries to Sean Manaea and Jharel Cotton have paved the way for Alcantara to stick in the rotation for three straight turns, but after impressing in the first two of those outings, the rookie endured some turbulence Friday. He was ultimately chased from the contest in the bottom of the fifth inning, as he allowed a leadoff single to Drew Robinson before yielding a two-run home run to Shin-Soo Choo. While his season will end on a sour note, Alcantara should have the opportunity to compete for a rotation spot with the Athletics next spring, though it seems more likely he'll open the 2018 campaign as a starter for Triple-A Nashville.

Athletics' Raul Alcantara: Slated for Friday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara has been confirmed as Friday's starter against the Rangers, Joe Stiglich of NBC Sports California reports.

Scheduled starter Jharel Cotton was shut down for the remainder of the season Tuesday, so Alcantara will receive one last turn in the rotation. He faces a tough road matchup with the Rangers in Arlington, so his fantasy appeal for Friday's start is nearly nonexistent.

Athletics' Raul Alcantara: Shines with win in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara (1-1) earned the win Saturday against the Rangers, throwing five shutout innings while working around two hits and two walks in Oakland's 1-0 victory over the Rangers. He struck out five.

A last-minute replacement for Sean Manaea (back), Alcantara spun a gem, eking out just enough innings to qualify for the helpful decision. He threw 49 strikes in 86 pitches, though, which reflects his risky skill set. Still, AL-only players and desperate mixed streamers desperate enough to start him came away with a pleasant surprise. He may take another turn if Manaea can't go Thursday on the road against these same Rangers.

Athletics' Raul Alcantara: Thrust into start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara will make an emergency start Saturday against the Rangers in place of the scratched Sean Manaea (back), Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Sean Manaea was scratched with a minor back issue, so Alcantara will step in to make his second spot start in the past week. He held his own while filling in for Jharel Cotton (groin) earlier in the week, striking out two batters in 3.2 scoreless innings. He likely won't pitch far enough into the game to qualify for a win.

Athletics' Raul Alcantara: Solid in Monday emergency start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara, who was a last-minute starter Monday in place of Jharel Cotton (groin), didn't factor into the decision against the Tigers but allowed just two hits and a walk over 3.2 scoreless innings. He struck out two.

Alcantara was much better than his early exit would imply, but a pitch count of 67 before the end of the fourth inning got him the hook. However, the outing was certainly encouraging, considering the 24-year-old right-hander had allowed a pair of earned runs over two innings in relief against the Red Sox last Tuesday. Alcantara has looked much better overall in his three September appearances for the Athletics as compared to his earlier big-league stint this season, a stretch during which he posted a 16.71 ERA in seven innings across three outings.
