2019 Fantasy Outlook
Alcantara transitioned to a reliever in 2017, working out of the bullpen in 55 of his 56 appearances between Triple-A Toledo and Detroit. He began the season with the Mud Hens, getting called up July 4. Alcantara shuttled between Motown and Corporal Klinger's hometown for the next few weeks before settling in for good July 20. As a starter, Alcantara's main issue was control. He took a huge leap forward last season -- by his own accord, Alcantara began changing speeds with less reliance on his fastball. Something clicked as evidenced by a 5.0 BB% in 30 innings with the Tigers. Alcantara's strikeouts also fell, but with the ability to throw 95 mph, there's a chance he can miss more bats as he further refines his repertoire as a reliever. Alcantara pitched mainly in lower-leverage spots, though he did garner three saves in his last 14 outings. Read Past Outlooks

October 24, 2019
Alcantara was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday and elected free agency.
ANALYSIS
The 26-year-old saw his heaviest major-league workload yet in 2019, logging 42.2 innings with a 4.85 ERA but only a 13.2 percent strikeout rate. Alcantara's likeliest role would be as a middle reliever, but it's unclear whether a team will be inclined to sign him given his inability to dominate hitters.

Stat Review
How does Victor Alcantara compare to other relievers?
This section compares his stats with all relief pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 30 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 30 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
