Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
Alcantara underwent Tommy John surgery Friday to repair the UCL in his right elbow, Craig Mish of the Miami Herald reports.
Alcantara landed on the injured list in early September and had his rehab assignment cut short after spraining his UCL on Sept. 22. Now having undergone surgery to address the issue, the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner will almost certainly miss the entire 2024 season.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Shut down with UCL sprain
Alcantara (elbow/forearm) acknowledged Saturday that he will not pitch again this year, Jordan McPherson and Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald report.
Alcantara threw four scoreless innings in a promising rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Jacksonville, but his elbow and forearm were barking again in the aftermath and he's now officially been shut down with what's being called a right UCL sprain. The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner said it has yet to be determined whether the injury will require a surgical repair. He finishes 2023 with a 7-12 record, 4.14 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 151:48 K:BB in 28 starts covering 184.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Renewed forearm tightness
Alcantara felt renewed forearm tightness following his rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Jacksonville, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Alcantara is headed to Miami to be evaluated this weekend by the Marlins' medical staff, and it's a safe bet that he is not going to be able to return before the end of the regular season. He tallied four strikeouts over four scoreless innings Thursday with Jacksonville while touching 98.3 mph with his fastball, but the right UCL sprain that sent him to the injured list Sept. 6 is still clearly an issue....

Alcantara (forearm) allowed one hit and no walks while striking out four across four scoreless innings in a rehab outing with Triple-A Jacksonville on Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Alcantara put up an impressive stat line, but more importantly he managed to throw 51 pitches while mixing in all of his offerings. He also topped out at 98.3 mph. The next step for Alcantara is unclear, though he could get one more turn in the big-league rotation before the regular season comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Rehab start Thursday
Alcantara (forearm) is scheduled to make a rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Jacksonville, Craig Mish of the Miami Herald reports.
If that outing goes smoothly, Alcantara could make it back for one final regular-season start and perhaps help the Marlins in their quest to claim an NL wild-card spot. He was diagnosed with a right UCL sprain earlier this month but has thrown a couple of side sessions without issue in the last week. Should next week's return come to fruition, Alcantara would likely be facing the Mets on the road at Citi Field.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Completes second side session
Alcantara (forearm) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Monday, his second since resuming his throwing program last week, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.
Per Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald, Alcantara made full use of his arsenal and indicated afterward the session that he was feeling good. The reigning National League Cy Young Award winner remains hopeful to pitch again before the regular season ends, but he'll still need to face hitters in live batting practice or a simulated game before the Marlins are likely comfortable activating him from the 15-day injured list....

Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Resumes throwing Wednesday
Alcantara (forearm/elbow) played catch Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
It was his first time throwing a baseball since he landed on the 15-day injured list last Wednesday with what has since been diagnosed as a right UCL sprain. Alcantara seems doubtful to be activated when first eligible next Tuesday, but the reigning NL Cy Young Award winner could potentially return before the end of September if all goes well with his side work. Miami currently sits 1.5 games back of the Diamondbacks for the third NL Wild Card spot.... See More ... See Less

According to Craig Mish of the Miami Herald, Alcantara informed the Marlins after his start against the Nationals on Sunday that he was experiencing some discomfort in his pitching arm.

Alcantara will be eligible to return Sept. 19, but the results of the exams will offer a clearer picture as to when he might make it back.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sandy Alcantara: Goes eight innings in win
Alcantara (7-12) earned the win Sunday, allowing four runs (two earned) on nine hits and two walks over eight innings against the Nationals. He struck out three.
The Nationals did most of their damage against Alcantara with a three-run fifth inning, though the right-hander battled his way through eight innings to earn his seventh win. It's been a bit of a struggle for Alcantara of late, as he's now allowed 15 runs (13 earned) in his last four starts (26.1 innings). Overall, he sports a 4.14 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and 151:48 K:BB across 28 starts (184.2 innings) this season. Alcantara is currently in line for a road matchup with the Phillies in his next outing....

Alcantara (6-12) took the loss Tuesday, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks over 5.2 innings against the Rays. He struck out four.
Alcantara held Tampa Bay to just one run through five innings, but the floodgates opened in the sixth when three hits and a hit-by-pitch resulted in three runs and Alcantara's removal from the game. The reigning National League Cy Young Award winner seemed to be regaining his form in the second half of the season, but his last three starts have left a lot to be desired -- Alcantra has posted a 5.40 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and pedestrian 13:6 K:BB across 18.1 innings during that span....
