The 10 worst MLB players so far in 2019

By

Sandy Alcantara, Miami Marlins

March/April Stats: 1-3 record with a 14.7% strikeout rate, 10.0% walk rate, 4.86 ERA 5.47 SIERA, and 0.4 fWAR in 33.1 innings

Alcantara’s debut with the Marlins last season was short (34 innings) but successful, as he posted a 3.44 ERA. His SIERA was all the way up at 5.42 because he also produced a 20.6% strikeout rate, 15.8% walk rate, 80.8% strand rate, and .250 BABIP against despite a 35.2% hard-hit rate allowed.

As we can see from the above numbers, not much has changed in those handful of peripherals, while his strand rate (64.9%) and BABIP against (.309) have worsened considerably. His hard-hit rate allowed (29.2%) has improved, though, as has his soft-hit rate (23.0%).

Most of Alcantara’s work thus far in 2019 has come in the friendly confines of Marlins Park (24.1 innings), yet he currently carries a 5.55 home ERA. It seems as if that’s a bit of tough luck, evidenced by an 18.9% strikeout rate, 5.7% walk rate, and 3.27 FIP. However, it hasn’t helped that he’s stranded just 55.9% of runners while allowing a .346 BABIP in South Beach.
