Alcantara (6-9) earned the win Tuesday at Baltimore after allowing three runs on six hits with five strikeouts and a walk across six innings.
The right-hander pounded the zone Tuesday and delivered 62 of 85 pitches for strikes. He served up two solo homers across six frames and attempted to come out for the seventh, but he was pulled after giving up another run on a double and a single without recording an out. In 12 starts since surrendering eight runs over 1.1 innings during his outing May 14 against the Dodgers, Alcantara has a 2.77 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 59:22 K:BB over 74.2 frames.
The Marlins reinstated Alcantara (personal) from the bereavement list ahead of Sunday's game against the Padres, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
According to McPherson, Alcantara was seen throwing a side session Sunday, so the Marlins presumably won't look to him to eat innings in the series finale, which Miami is treating as a bullpen game. Instead, Alcantara will likely slot back into Miami's rotation for Tuesday's series opener in Baltimore for what would mark his second start since the All-Star break.
Alcantara was placed on the bereavement list Tuesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Alcantara had been scheduled to start Wednesday in Washington. The Marlins have yet to announce who will start in his place. Players may spend between three and seven days on the bereavement list, so it's possible Alcantara's next start is delayed by only two days, though he could also wind up missing a turn or two in the rotation.
Alcantara (5-9) gave up five runs (three earned) on four hits and three walks while striking out three over three innings in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies. He took the loss.
All three earned runs came in the first inning. Bryce Harper doubled with two outs, the next two batters walked and Travis Jankowski hit a broken-bat, bases-clearing double just inside the first-base bag. Alcantara needed 80 pitches to get through the three frames. This was his second-shortest start of the year, and it only raised his ERA to 3.23. Alcantara tentatively lines up to start Wednesday in Washington.

Alcantara held the Dodgers in check through three innings, allowing only one walk and one single. He surrendered an unearned run in the fourth inning but came undone in the fifth frame by surrendering four consecutive singles before being pulled. While it was far from Alcantara's best outing, he kept the ball in the yard and issued only one free pass. It was also the third straight start he was charged an unearned run. Even with the poor outing, he has a 3.09 ERA with 102 strikeouts across 116.2 innings for the season.

The right-hander battled his control and threw 62 of 99 pitches for strikes, but Alcantara compensated by giving up little hard contact as all five Atlanta hits were singles. The quality start was his 13th in 18 trips to the mound, and he'll take a 2.96 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 97:33 K:BB through 112.2 innings into his next outing.
Alcantara will start Saturday against Atlanta instead of Sunday as previously scheduled, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The right-hander pitched last Sunday versus the Nationals and surrendered five runs (four earned over 5.1 innings, and he'll switch spots in the rotation with Zach Thompson this weekend. The move shouldn't have any broader implications for Alcantara, since he still lines up for one additional start before the All-Star break, which begins July 12.
Alcantara (4-7) allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out three in 5.1 innings to take the loss against the Nationals on Sunday.
Alcantara gave up an unearned run in the top of the first inning Sunday but held the Nationals scoreless across the next four innings. However, he allowed a pair of home runs in the sixth inning to put him in line for his seventh loss of the year. Sunday's appearance snapped a streak of seven consecutive starts in which he had lasted at least six innings, and the right-hander has now been charged with four losses across his last eight outings. Alcantara tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Atlanta on Saturday.
Alcantara didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jays, giving up one run on five hits and a walk over eight innings. He struck out three.
He also hit a batter, which proved costly when Bo Bichette came around to score Toronto's first run in the sixth inning. Alcantara was otherwise sharp as he delivered his fourth straight quality start and 11th in 16 outings, a stretch of success reflected in his 2.93 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 90:26 K:BB through 101.1 innings.

The righty had made it through 8.1 shutout innings before Paul Goldschmidt, who had reached on an error, scored the winning run on a Yadier Molina single. Despite not earning the win, Alcantara recorded a third consecutive quality start and the fifth in his last six outings. The lack of run support has led to an unremarkable 4-6 record, but Alcantara's other numbers (3.09 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, 87 strikeouts) have kept him in the conversation with fantasy's elite starting pitchers. He's projected to make his next start Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

He's lined up to take the mound in St. Louis next week.

Adam Frazier got aboard on an error and came around to score on a Colin Moran double in the first inning, but that was all Alcantara would surrender. The right-hander bounced back well after a rough turn versus Toronto on Tuesday. The 25-year-old has a 3.30 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 74:22 K:BB across 79 innings this year. He lines up to face Atlanta in next weekend's series.

The nine hits he surrendered were the most he's allowed in any start this season. Even so, the majority of the damage against him came on a three-run home run by Vladimir Guerrero, and he otherwise managed to work out of jams. Despite the slight setback in this outing, Alcantara has a 3.68 ERA with 68 strikeouts across 71 innings for the campaign.
Alcantara won't pitch as scheduled Sunday at Boston since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
