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.

Despite the slight setback in this outing, Alcantara has a 3.68 ERA with 68 strikeouts across 71 innings for the campaign.

He'll take a 2.95 ERA and 42:13 K:BB through 42.2 innings into his next outing.
Alcantara (1-2) earned the win Wednesday at Milwaukee after allowing two runs on five hits with four strikeouts and zero walks across seven innings.

Alcantara's next start has been pushed back one day to Monday instead of Sunday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The Marlins are off on Friday, and instead of keeping Alcantara and the rest of the rotation on schedule, they'll use that day off to give them an extra day of rest.
