Sandy Alcantara, SP MIA:

(3 – 5) 3.80 ERA 1.35 WHIP 5.83 K/9 4.05 BB/9 0.76 HR/9

Sandy Alcantara may be the forgotten man in a Marlins rotation that has been quietly effective this season. Alcantara was the prize piece in the deal that sent Marcell Ozuna to St. Louis and was once a heralded prospect, sitting firmly in MLB’s Top 100 prospects in 2018.

Spencer Turnbull, SP DET (4/23 @ BOS, 4/28 @ CHW)

Currently pitching to a 3.43 ERA and a 10.29 K/9, Spencer Turnbull has been able to minimize hard contact (34.5%) and pitch to his peripherals (3.19 FIP 3.85 xFIP). He is currently touting an 11.2% swinging strike rate, which is slightly above league average, but finished with 15 and 10 swinging strikes in two of his April starts against the Royals and Indians.
