The Marlins have activated right-hander Sandy Alcantara from the injured list, per Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald (Twitter link). Fellow right-hander Jesús Tinoco has been designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
Alcantara hit the IL for undisclosed reasons amidst Miami’s COVID-19 clubhouse outbreak. The hard-throwing sinkerballer, an All-Star in 2019, has been limited to just one start this season. He’ll start this afternoon’s game against Tampa Bay.
Tinoco, a 25-year-old reliever, has pitched five scoreless innings for Miami this season, albeit with three strikeouts and walks apiece. He has a career 4.17 ERA/7.40 FIP in 41 innings with the Rockies and Marlins over the past two seasons.
