Following up on his initial report from Monday morning, Craig Mish of SportsGrid hears that the Marlins and Sandy Alcantara reached an agreement Sunday on a five-year, $56 million extension. It’s the largest guarantee ever made to a first-time arbitration-eligible MLB pitcher. Moreover, this news comes on the heels of Miami inking Avisaíl García to provide some desperately needed run support.
I don’t have much to add beyond what was already expressed in that article. I called for the All-Star right-hander to earn $58 million over the next five years (2022-2026), and according to Mish, he’ll settle for just a couple million bucks shy of that.
