Wild in his brief big league audition last year, Alcantara has shown brief flashes of brilliance since during an inconsistency. A 5.8 K-BB% doesn't support his 4.15 ERA, but a 10.9% swinging-strike rate also opens the door for way more punchouts. Wielding a mid-90s heater, a wipeout slider, and a sinker that induces plenty of ground balls, the 23-year-old righty could be on the cusp of mixed-league viability if he can improve his control. After pitching well at Coors and twice against the Braves, he now gets a favorable schedule against the Reds, Pirates, Royals, and Giants. That makes him an interesting streamer down the stretch.
