Marlins' Alcantara has Tommy John surgery, will miss 2024 season

Miami Marlins right-hander Sandy Alcantara underwent Tommy John surgery Friday and will be sidelined for the entire 2024 season.

“I am most saddened for the great Marlins fans, who were so supportive of me and the team this year,” Alcantara said in a statement posted on Instagram.

Alcantara was placed on the injured list in early September with a right forearm flexor strain. An MRI later revealed a UCL sprain. The 28-year-old returned for a rehab start but was shut down for the season on Sept. 23 after experiencing forearm tightness.

“I give this game my all, I give this city my all,” Alcantara said. “And so I promise I will not take a day off as I push to be back better than ever. I will miss pitching but I plan to be around the team as much as possible.”

Alcantara posted a 7-12 record with a 4.14 ERA and 151 strikeouts across 184 2/3 innings over an up-and-down season.

The two-time All-Star was acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals in December 2017. He owns a 3.31 ERA with 779 strikeouts over 138 starts in six seasons with the Marlins.
