Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Shipped to Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara was traded to the Marlins on Wednesday as part of the return package in the trade that sent Marcell Ozuna to the Cardinals, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

The rest of the prospects headed to Miami have not yet been revealed, but the flame-throwing right-hander might be the headliner. He can touch triple digits with his fastball, but shaky command and inconsistent secondary offerings have many evaluators pegging him for a high-leverage relief role. He is still just 22, so there is time for him to improve in both areas. The Marlins will continue to develop him as a starter, as they won't be contending anytime soon. The impact on his fantasy value is complicated -- he was likely ticketed for a relief role sooner than later with the Cardinals, which could have yielded saves and strikeouts, but now he will have a chance to max out as a high-strikeout/high-WHIP starter.

Cardinals' Sandy Alcantara: Strikes out side Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara fired a scoreless eighth inning in Friday's 8-2 loss to the Cubs, striking out the side.

Alcantara needed only 13 pitches to dispose of Jason Heyward, Javier Baez and Ian Happ, who all went down on swinging strikes. After surrendering a solo home run in his MLB debut back on Sept. 3, the 22-year-old righty has put together consecutive one-inning scoreless outings in which he's allowed no hits and issued just one walk.

Cardinals' Sandy Alcantara: Gives up homer in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara allowed a solo home run along with another hit and a walk over two-thirds of an inning in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Giants. He also recorded a strikeout.

The hard-throwing rookie gave up a 377-foot shot to left off the bat of Tim Federowicz, the first batter he faced. Alcantara was able to make up for it in part by ringing up Buster Posey for his first major-league strikeout before exiting a batter later. The 21-year-old right-hander certainly brings plenty of firepower, but harnessing it consistently has been an ongoing challenge down at Double-A Springfield. He'll be an intriguing asset to monitor in his first go-around against big-league bats during the balance of September.

Cardinals' Sandy Alcantara: Called up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara was recalled by the Cardinals on Friday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Alcantara is set to make his major-league debut in the near future, as he figures to serve out of the bullpen for St. Louis throughout the rest of the season. The 21-year-old could wind up getting an opportunity to start, depending on how the next couple weeks go for the Cardinals, as he's posted a 4.31 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 125.1 innings, and 22 starts for Double-A Springfield in 2017. But it seems as though the club wants Alcantara in a relief role this September, since they've had him come out of the bullpen during his past three outings in the last week with Springfield.

Cardinals' Sandy Alcantara: Coming on at Double-A Springfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alcantara fired seven scoreless innings for Double-A Springfield versus Arkansas on Sunday, allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out four.

The fireballing right-hander has seemingly started to hit his stride in his last three outings, allowing just two runs in the 18.2 innings he's pitched over that span. Sunday's effort was Alcantara's first of more than six innings this season, and the 87 pitches he threw were a testament to his efficiency. While his 4.85 ERA, .270 BAA and 1.45 WHIP all still have ample room for improvement, Alcantara's recent performances certainly provide reason for optimism.
