Alcantara (4-9) yielded four runs on nine hits and two walks over six frames Sunday, striking out six and taking the loss against the Mets.
Things went bad for Alcantara early as Jeff McNeil took him deep on the very first pitch of the game. He later allowed a pair of runs in the fourth inning and another in the sixth. After lowering his ERA to 3.51 after his June 21 win, it's already back up to 3.94. Alcantara will get a tough test on the road against the Dodgers on Saturday.
Alcantara (4-8) allowed two runs on four hits with four walks and five strikeouts across 5.2 innings while taking a loss against the Nationals on Wednesday.
The right-hander allowed just a two-run homer, but that was enough for the Nationals, as the Marlins supported Alcantara with just one late run. This was much better than his last start against the Nationals, one in which he yielded six runs in six innings. However, it was still Alcantara's second straight loss. He is 4-7 with a 3.82 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 70 strikeouts in 101.1 innings this season.
Alcantara (4-7) allowed six runs on seven hits and one walk across six innings while taking the loss Thursday against the Nationals. He struck out one.
Alcantara fell victim to the long ball in this one, as all the Nats' runs came via a pair of solo home runs and a pair of two-run shots. He threw just 90 pitches and could've perhaps gone deeper into the game, but he got the hook after finishing a five-run sixth inning. Alcantara had delivered a quality start in back-to-back outings heading into this one and will look to get back on track in his next turn on the road Wednesday for a rematch in the nation's capital.
Alcantara (4-6) picked up the win after surrendering one run on eight hits and four walks while striking out six over 7.2 innings Friday against the Phillies.
Alcantara dealt with plenty of traffic on the bases, but he managed to work himself out of trouble for the most part, with his long lone allowed coming in the third inning. The 23-year-old right-hander nearly made it through eight full innings, but he was yanked with two outs in the seventh after 112 pitches (75 strikes). In addition to a losing record, Alcantara has posted a 3.51 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with 64 strikeouts over 89.2 innings.
Alcantara allowed three runs on eight hits with six strikeouts and two walks across six innings during a no-decision against the Marlins on Sunday.
The Pirates had runners in scoring position pretty much all afternoon against Alcantara, but the right-hander limited the damage by holding Pittsburgh to a 2-for-16 day with runners in scoring position. It wasn't enough, though, as the Pirates broke through against the Marlins bullpen to retake the lead. Alcantara is 3-6 with a 3.73 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 82 innings this season. He will pitch next at the Phillies on Friday.
Alcantara (3-6) yielded four runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks in five innings Monday, striking out six and taking the loss to St. Louis.
While Alcantara dropped his season ERA from 3.80 to 3.67, this start was nothing to get excited over. The Cardinals were up 1-0 entering the sixth inning before he allowed a single and issued a walk to start things off. A Jorge Alfaro throwing error let those two runners score, ending Alcantara's evening. The 23-year-old now owns an uninspiring 52:36 K:BB in 76 innings this season. He'll face the visiting Pirates on Sunday.
Alcantara (3-5) allowed one earned run on five hits and a walk while striking out five across seven innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Brewers.
Alcantara held the Brewers to just one extra-base hit in the contest -- an RBI double by Orlando Arcia in the second inning -- and otherwise limited self-inflicted damage. Most importantly, he handed out only one free pass after surrendering multiple walks in six of his last seven starts. He backed up the improved control by starting 14 of the 24 batters he faced with a strike. Despite the strong effort, Alcantara still has a troubling 46:32 K:BB across 71 innings on the campaign, though his 3.80 ERA and 1.35 WHIP are respectable. He'll look to turn in another strong start in his next appearance, which is currently scheduled for Monday against St. Louis.
Alcantara allowed two hits and five walks while striking out three across six scoreless innings Thursday against the Giants. He did not factor into the decision.
Alcantara walked at least one batter in three of his six innings and allowed surrendered multiple free passes in two frames. However, he managed to work around them for his third scoreless effort of the campaign. Despite the strong run prevention, he wasn't particularly dominant -- he generated only nine swinging strikes -- but took advantage of a weak Giants' lineup in his pitcher-friendly home park. Alcantara now has a 41:31 K:BB across 64 innings this season, resulting in a mediocre 4.08 ERA and poor 1.41 WHIP. He'll face a much stiffer test in his next start, currently scheduled for Wednesday at Milwaukee.
Alcantara (2-5) took the loss Saturday as the Marlins were downed 5-0 by the Nationals. He gave up five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out two over five innings.
One start after tossing a shutout against the Mets, Alcantara was on the receiving end of one thanks to Patrick Corbin. The Marlins right-hander has still only completed six innings once in his last six trips to the mound, and he'll carry a 4.50 ERA and 38:26 K:BB over 58 frames into his next outing at home against the Giants on Thursday.
Alcantara (2-4) twirled a shutout Sunday, yielding one walk and two hits while striking out eight in a win over the Mets.
Alcantara was dynamite Sunday, forcing three double plays before the Mets could get any momentum against him. He needed just 89 pitches to finish off the game, notching a season-high strikeout total in the process. The 23-year-old righty dropped his ERA to 4.25 in 53 innings this season. Alcantara will look to ride this momentum in Washington on Saturday.
Alcantara (1-4) took the loss against the Mets on Saturday by allowing four runs on eight hits across 5.2 innings. He struck out one and walked two.
Alcantara entered the sixth inning with the game tied 1-1 but gave up back-to-back solo homers and was eventually removed after giving up an RBI single to opposing pitcher Jacob deGrom. The 23-year-old has a 5.11 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 28:23 K:BB over 44 innings and lines up to face the Mets again next weekend.
Alcantara threw five innings Monday, allowing three runs on four hits and six walks in a win over the Cubs. He struck out five and took the no-decision.
On a positive note, Alcantara kept the Cubs off the board after yielding all three runs in the first frame, started by a two-run shot from Anthony Rizzo. The 23-year-old righty has allowed three or more runs in four of his last five outings, raising his ERA to 4.93. After striking out six batters and walking none in his 2019 debut, Alcantara owns a 21:21 K:BB over the last 30.1 innings. Still in search of his second win, he'll take on the Mets in New York on Saturday.
Alcantara (1-3) allowed six runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks across 5.1 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Indians.
Alcantara wasn't helped by his defense but also made mistakes of his own, with all four of his earned runs coming as a result of homers. He also continued to struggle with his command and has just a 22:15 K:BB across 33.1 innings for the campaign. As a result, he has now allowed at least four earned runs in three of his past four outings. Alcantara lines up for a pair of road starts next week (at CHC, at NYM).
Alcantara allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits with two strikeouts and four walks in a no-decision against the Indians on Wednesday.
The 23-year-old was in line for the loss when he departed, but the Marlins tied the game in the eighth. Despite the no-decision and few strikeouts, this was Alcantara's best outing since March 31. Coming into Wednesday, he had yielded 11 runs in his last 11 innings, but this start lowered his ERA to 4.50. He is 1-2 with a 1.50 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 28 innings across five starts. His next scheduled start is Tuesday at home once again against the Indians.
Alcantara (1-2) allowed five earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven across six innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Cubs.
Alcantara stumbled in the second and third innings, during which he allowed all of his baserunners from the effort. While the overall line was poor, he was solid in his four other innings of work and racked up an impressive 20 swinging strikes. Still, he's in a rough patch, as across his last three starts he's allowed 13 earned runs while walking eight and striking out 13 across 15 innings.
Alcantara (1-1) took the loss Friday after surrendering six runs on 11 hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings against the Phillies.
Alcantara made it through the first two frames unscathed, but he fell apart in the third inning, allowing five runs on six hits and a walk. After giving up just two runs over his first 12 innings of the 2019 campaign, the 23-year-old took a definite step back in this one. He'll aim to get back on track against the Cubs on Wednesday.
Alcantara didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Braves, giving up two runs on four hits and five walks over four innings. He didn't record a strikeout.
The outing was a major letdown after Alcantara's brilliant 2019 debut against the Rockies, but it's not that surprising the 23-year-old would be inconsistent from start to start given his track record. The right-hander threw 55 of 93 pitches for strikes and only fired eight first-pitch strikes through 21 batters, and he'll face a tough test in his next trip to the mound Friday, at home against the Phillies.
Alcantara (1-0) threw eight shutout innings, allowing four hits with six strikeouts and no walks to beat the Rockies 3-0 on Sunday.
The 23-year-old threw seven shutout innings against the Phillies last September, which was previously the longest outing of his career. Alcantara is a candidate to strike out one per inning this season, but in his first 14 MLB appearances, he's also posted a 6.2 BB/9 rate. Seeing Alcantara display excellent control in his first 2019 start is a good sign that he has a chance to remain worthy of a rotation spot, given questions about that possibility in recent years.
Alcantara will break camp as a member of the rotation and is slated to make his first start March 31 at home versus the Rockies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The Marlins have whittled down their rotation candidates over the last two days, assigning Wei-Yin Chen to the bullpen to begin the season and releasing Dan Straily on Monday. Those decisions suggest that Miami is going all in on the youth movement, likely affording the 23-year-old Alcantara some security as he joins his first Opening Day roster. Expect some uneven performances from the right-hander, who boasts a big fastball but struggles to control it and lacks a deep arsenal of secondary offerings to lean on when the heater isn't working for him.
Alcantara threw 88 pitches in a minor-league game Friday, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.
The Marlins' rotation remains a mystery. Alcantara is one of six candidates for four open spots, with only Jose Urena officially locked into a spot as the Opening Day starter. The organization remains on high on Alcantara, but while it continues to stretch him out as a starter, it's not yet clear whether he'll be taking the mound for Miami or Triple-A New Orleans to begin the season. A long relief/swing starter role in the big-league bullpen is also on the table.
