Sandy Alcantara (28, Miami Marlins), who won the National League Cy Young Award last year, was placed on the injured list after performing below expectations.
The Miami team announced on the 7th (Korean time) that Alcantara was placed on the injured list on the 15th due to an elbow flexor sprain. His last appearance was against the Washington Nationals on the 4th.
Injuries in this area are quite likely to lead to elbow ligament repair surgery (Tommy John surgery). If Alcantara undergoes Tommy John surgery, he could return until the 2025 season.
Also, even if he does not undergo Tommy John surgery, Alcantara is likely to be out for the season. The recovery period for this injury is at least four weeks.
Alcantara won his first Cy Young Award last year based on his overwhelming innings ability. However, he was unable to maintain that momentum this season.온라인카지노
It wasn’t good from the start. Alcantara started April with an ERA of 5.04 and performed very poorly in the first half of the year with 3 wins and 7 losses and an ERA of 4.72 in 18 games.
Afterwards, starting in July, he showed signs of recovery, recording an ERA of 3.20 in 10 games in the second half of the season. However, even this score falls far short of last year.
However, Alcantara showed great innings digestion despite his sluggish performance. He pitched 184 2/3 innings in 28 games. Had there been no injuries, he could have reached 200 innings for the second straight year.
Before his injury, Alcantara pitched 184 2/3 innings in 28 games this season, recording 7 wins, 12 losses, and an ERA of 4.14. He struck out 151 times.
Miami is currently fighting for a National League wild card. As of the 6th, he was in 4th place, half a game away from 3rd place. Alcantara’s departure is very bad news.
