Alcantara allowed one run on three hits and two walks over five innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees. He struck out four.
The right-hander appears to be on the right track heading towards Opening Day. After issuing seven free passes with only one strikeout in his first 3.2 spring innings, Alcantara has posted a more reasonable 7:4 K:BB through his last 8.1 frames.
Alcantara allowed two runs on one hit and two walks over 3.1 innings while striking out three in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals.
It was a step up from his prior efforts, and Alcantara looked strong through three scoreless innings before running out of gas in the fourth, finishing the day having thrown 59 pitches (37 strikes). The right-hander still has a scary 10.29 ERA and 4:9 K:BB through seven innings this spring, but he appears to be healthy -- Alcantara was touching 99 mph with his fastball Friday, per Glenn Sattell of MLB.com -- and a couple more solid performances should allay any concerns heading into Opening Day.
Alcantara gave up five runs on five hits and four walks without striking out a batter in a Grapefruit League game against the Orioles on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.
The right-hander failed to make it out of the second inning, and the rough outing comes after he walked three batters in his spring debut. Control has never been Alcantara's strong suit, but a 1:7 K:BB through his first 3.2 spring innings is not what the Marlins were hoping to see from the 24-year-old. He's still expected to open the regular season at the top of the team's rotation after tossing 197.1 solid innings in 2019, but if he doesn't turn things around soon, Miami may have little choice but to consider other plans.
Alcantara (6-14) allowed one run on eight hits with one walk and five strikeouts across six innings to earn a victory against the Phillies on Sunday.
All too often in 2019, the 24-year-old took a loss when he deserved a better fate, so it was great to see him pitch well and win in the season finale. Alcantara went 2-2 with a 2.59 ERA in September. Overall, he finished 6-14 with a 3.88 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 151 strikeouts in 197.1 innings this season.
Alcantara gave up two runs on six hits and zero walks while striking out six in seven innings Tuesday against the Mets. He did not factor in the decision.
He has now logged 191.1 innings -- only 18 MLB pitchers have eclipsed the 190-inning mark so far this season. Alcantara's 146:80 K:BB over that span will not rate well on projection systems, but he continues to get better, seemingly with every start, and just turned 24 years old on Sept. 7. He lines up to start the final game of the season in Philadelphia.
Alcantara (5-14) was charged with the loss against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, surrendering five runs (four earned) on seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out three across 5.2 innings.
The right-hander allowed the Diamondbacks to get to him early, serving up a home run to Abraham Alamonte in the first inning. He also allowed a homer to Christian Walker in the fifth. The rougher outing hit a bit harder after Alcantara had allowed just one run over his last two starts (16 innings), including a complete game against the Royals. The 24-year-old will take a 4.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 140:80 K:BB into a Tuesday showdown against the Mets.
Alcantara (5-13) took the loss despite allowing just a single run on nine hits over seven innings against the Giants on Friday. He struck out six.
It's the 10th time this season in 29 starts the Marlins have provided Alcantara with one or fewer runs of support. The 24-year-old has pitched to a 3.93 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 137:78 K:BB in 178.2 innings this season. Alcantara lines up to face the Diamondbacks on Wednesday to close out the road trip.
Alcantara (5-12) tossed a 102-pitch shutout Sunday against the Royals, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out eight.
He has a 2.77 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in seven starts (48.2 innings) since the calendar turned to August, but this was the first of those starts where he emerged victorious. While Alcantara's season ERA still sits north of 4.00 (4.04), he only turned 24 years old Saturday, and this recent run is an encouraging sign for his long-term prospects. He starts Friday in San Francisco, so there's no reason he can't continue to be a fantasy asset next week.
Alcantara allowed four runs on three hits with four walks and seven strikeouts across seven innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Tuesday.
The 23-year-old continues to rack up the strikeouts, as he's punched out 22 hitters in his last 20 innings, but he has lost his last six decisions and hasn't won a game since June 21. Alcantara is hit or miss in the ERA department as well, so owners deploying him really are just counting on strikeouts, and even so, his strikeout rate has only increased recently. He is 4-12 with a 4.26 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 123 strikeouts in 162.2 innings this season. Alcantara will take the mound again Sunday at home against the Royals.
Alcantara (4-12) took the loss Wednesday as the Marlins were shut out 5-0 by the Reds, allowing four runs on six hits and a walk over six innings while striking out eight.
The right-hander served up a three-run homer to Aristides Aquino in the first inning, dooming him to his sixth straight losing decision thanks to another ineffectual performance from the Miami offense. Alcantara hasn't recorded a win since June 21, but Wednesday's outing was the first time he hasn't walked multiple batters since June 27. He'll carry a 4.22 ERA and 116:72 K:BB through 155.2 innings into his next start Tuesday in Pittsburgh.
Alcantara allowed one run (none earned) on three hits and two walks while striking out seven across seven innings Thursday against the Braves. He did not factor into the decision.
Alcantara limited the Braves' lineup, holding them without an extra-base hit. The effort extended his streak of working at least seven innings to three starts, during which he's allowed only five earned runs across 21.2 frames. While he hasn't earned a win since June 21, Alcantara has rebounded from a rocky five-start stretch spanning parts of June and July to lower his ERA to 4.15 and WHIP to 1.38 across 149.2 innings for the season. He'll look to keep his strong run going in his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday against Cincinnati.
Alcantara (4-11) was charged with the loss against the Rockies on Friday, giving up two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out two over seven innings.
After not allowing a home run in three of his last four appearances, Alcantara served up a two-run shot to Ryan McMahon in the second inning. Luckily, that was the only damage of the night for the right-hander, who pitched surprisingly well at hitter-friendly Coors Field. The bad news is that his offense got shut out, continuing Alcantara's misfortune as the pitcher with the lowest run support throughout the majors. On the bright side, the 23-year-old leads the majors in double plays induced, raising his season total to 20 after recording one in the second inning. Alcantara now owns a 4.35 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 101:69 K:BB and will head to Atlanta for a divisional showdown with the Braves on Thursday.
Alcantara allowed three runs on five hits and two walks over 7.2 innings during Saturday's 7-6 win over the Braves. He struck out six but did not factor in the decision.
Alcantara held Atlanta scoreless through seven innings, but he faltered in the eighth and was unable to finish the frame while being charged with three runs. The 23-year-old struggled in his first few starts out of the All-Star break but has given up five runs on eight hits in his last two outings (12.2 innings). Alcantara lines up for a tough matchup Friday at Coors Field.
Alcantara gave up two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out four through five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Monday.
Alcantara gave up two runs in the first inning but settled down, allowing one hit through his next four frames.

Alcantara (4-10) gave up seven runs on six hits and five walks while striking out five through 4.2 innings to take the loss against the Twins on Wednesday.
Alcantara pitched three scoreless innings, but he was blasted for three home runs and saddled with the loss. The 23-year-old has a 6.97 ERA in five July starts. Overall, Alcantara has a 4.54 ERA and a 6.51 K/9 through 21 starts this season. Alcantara will make his next start Monday against the Mets at Citi Field.
Alcantara didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks, giving up two runs on five hits and three walks over six innings while striking out four.
The quality start was his first in over a month and his sixth of the season, but Alcantara was still on the hook for a loss until the Marlins put together a rally in the ninth inning capped by Harold Ramirez's walkoff sacrifice fly. The right-hander will take a 4.18 ERA and 84:55 K:BB through 118.1 innings into his next outing Wednesday, at home against the Twins.
Alcantara did not factor in the decision Saturday, but he allowed six runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out four.
Alcantara, who allowed solo home runs to Joc Pederson and Justin Turner, was taken off the hook when the Marlins erased a six-run deficit in the seventh and eighth innings. The right-hander has now gone five starts without a win. The 23-year-old has a 4.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 112.1 innings this season. He takes a 4-9 record into his next start, scheduled for Friday at home versus the Diamondbacks.
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.
