The Miami Marlins are still a work in progress, but pitcher Sandy Alcantara continues to prove he’s the real deal.
It was no surprise when Alcantara was chosen for the National League All-Star team. He has a strong argument to be the NL’s starting pitcher.
He pitched seven dominating innings Sunday against the Mets, allowing no runs and six hits in seven innings in what was an eventual 2-0 Miami win in 10 innings.
That lowered his ERA to 1.73 and Miami improved to 10-2 in his last 12 starts. In games where he doesn’t pitch, the Marlins are 30-40.
