NL Cy Young winner Alcantara misses begin with tendinitis

CLEVELAND — Miami Marins ace Sandy Alcantara was scratched from his scheduled begin Saturday at Cleveland with biceps tendinitis, however the workforce mentioned he’s not anticipated to be positioned on the injured listing.

The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner is sidelined with what the workforce known as “very mild” tendinitis. Alcantara was pushed again to start out within the collection at Atlanta that begins Monday.

Alcantara is 1-2 with a 5.84 ERA in 4 begins and had been lined as much as presumably face Guardians right-hander Shane Bieber, the 2020 AL Cy Young Award winner.

Left-hander Devin Smeltzer stuffed in for Alcantara within the first sport of the doubleheader. The collection opener Friday was rained out and rescheduled as a part of a doubleheader.
