The Miami Marlins star pitcher Sandy Alcantara is out for the 2024 season and they need to fill his void. They cannot go an entire season without an ace, and although one or two current pitchers could step into that roll it would be a downgrade. The Marlins need to have solid and consistent starter to replace Sandy.
Marlins Ace is out, they need someone to fill the spot
One terrifying but realistic view on Sandy Alcantara, is to view him as never coming back. He will return from his surgery but some players never fully recover or are easy to re-injure. Therefore the question is a valid one, should the Marlins look for someone to replace Sandy rather than a stopgap move? I think it would be a wise approach to the situation rather than just getting a body.
We will take a look at some available free agent pitchers and some players to avoid this offseason. Although Bendix hasn’t revealed his team strategy yet, any move made here will likely predict the kind of philosophy he will impart on the organization.
