Alcantara (infection) was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Alcantara missed over a month with a right axillary infection. He had been rehabbing with High-A Jupiter but won't end up back in the big leagues now that he's healthy. He could certainly return to Miami at some point down the stretch once he puts together a few good starts at the Triple-A level.
Alcantara (infection) is scheduled to throw 75 pitches in a rehab start for High-A Jupiter on Saturday, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.
He will ramp up his workload after throwing two innings in a rehab start for Jupiter on Monday. Alcantara has to build up his workload after hitting the disabled list with an axillary infection on July 3. Once healthy, he could rejoin the big-league rotation.
Alcantara (infection) began a rehab assignment at High-A Jupiter on Monday, tossing two innings and giving up five runs (four earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out one in the affiliate's 12-11 win over Fort Myers.
Alcantara resumed throwing shortly after the All-Star break and is building his arm back up again now that he has recovered from the right axillary infection that forced him to the 10-day disabled list July 3. Prior to being shut down, Alcantara had settled into a spot in the Miami rotation, but it's unclear if he'll stick around with the big club once he's activated. The right-hander tossed 47 pitches Monday, so he'll likely require one or two more rehab outings before he's ready to handle a starter's workload.
Alcantara (axillary infection) has begun his throwing program, the Associated Press reports.
It's good to hear he is up and throwing again, but it's still unclear when he could return to the rotation. He is technically eligible to return this weekend against the Phillies, but the Marlins may opt to play it safe an wait until after the All-Star break.
Alcantara was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a right axillary infection, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Alcantara will miss at least one start due to this ailment, but he could be able to return before the All-Star break depending on the severity of this issue. Expect an update on his status once the team establishes a timetable for his activation. With Alcantara on the shelf, Pablo Lopez now looks like the leading candidate to take the hill for the Marlins when a fifth starter is needed Thursday in Washington.
