Alcantara may have another avenue to the big leagues, as general manager Jed Hoyer said he likes what he has seen from the 22-year-old in center field, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports. "We do have a lot of infielders... Alcantara is fast and can go out and play center field and looks good when he's done it. In our organization, we have a lot more depth infield than outfield, so I think it only adds to his ways to being on the club," Hoyer said. "He's really opened our eyes with the year he's having."
