Marlins Agree to Sign Beginning pitcher Sandy Alcantara with 5-year, $65 million extension


News update that they have agreed to sign the midfielder Avisail Garcia on a four-year, $53 million contract, Marlins bought yourself a potentially great bargain in renewing the contract with the initiator Sandy Alcantara. Although he is not set to hit a free agent for another three seasons, Alcantara and the Marlins have agreed to a five-year, $65 million extension, report Craig Mish of the Miami Herald.

Alcantara, 26, has three years left as a referee before switching to freelancing, but this is the deal we often see with talented young stars making. For the team, the agreement buys cost certainty over the years of arbitration – and the arbitration process, which can ignite bridges from both perspectives – and two years of representation freedom. From a player perspective, it’s money back guarantee and protection against losing millions of dollars due to serious injury or a drop in form.

Alcantara was an All-Star in 2019 and followed by a great – albeit abbreviated – 2020 campaign (3.00 ERA in seven starts). Last season, he was a full-timer for the Marlins. He forced MLB lead with 33 starts, working 205 2/3 innings. He threw 3.19 ERA (131 ERA+) and 1.07 WHIP with 201 shots.

The Marlins have amazingly immature arms. Alcantara looks like a frontline pitcher, just like the 2021 All-Star Trevor Rogers. Shoulder injury has ruined 2021 for young player Sixto Sánchez. Jesús Luzardo has had a lousy 2021, but still has talent. Pablo López had a 3.07 ERA in 20 starts last year at the age of 25. The earliest any of these startups can hit freelance agency success is 2025. Marlins Agree to Sign Beginning pitcher Sandy Alcantara with 5-year, $65 million extension
