‘I threw too much,’ Alcantara says of injury exit ‘Tommy John surgery?
Sandy Alcantara (28, Miami Marlins), last year’s National League Cy Young Award winner, has been placed on the disabled list after a disappointing season.
The Miami organization announced on Sunday that Alcantara has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with an elbow flexor strain. His last start was on April 4 against the Washington Nationals.
Injuries in this area are quite likely to lead to elbow ligament splicing surgery (Tommy John surgery). If Alcantara undergoes Tommy John surgery, he won’t be back until the 2025 season.
Even without Tommy John surgery, Alcantara is likely out for the season. The recovery time for this injury is at least four weeks.
Alcantara won his first Cy Young Award last year on the strength of his dominant innings pitched. However, he hasn’t been able to keep the momentum going this season.
It started off badly. Alcantara started April with a 5.04 ERA and struggled mightily in the first half, going 3-7 with a 4.72 ERA in 18 games.
He rebounded in July, posting a 3.20 ERA in his final 10 games. However, even this is a far cry from last year.
However, Alcantara’s innings pitched through the slump. He pitched 184 2/3 innings in 28 games. If he hadn’t been injured, he could have reached 200 innings for the second straight year.
Before his injury, Alcantara pitched 184 2/3 innings in 28 games last season, going 7-12 with a 4.14 ERA. He had 151 strikeouts.온라인바카
Miami is currently in the National League wild-card fight. Third place and a half game out of fourth through the last six days. Alcantara’s departure is very bad news.
