RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The A's acquired Alcantara in the Andrew Bailey trade that also netted them Josh Reddick two offseasons ago. Alcantara finished 2013 with 12 wins in a season split between Low-A and High-A, and he was very strong in his 27 starts while putting together a 3.11 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. Alcantara has excellent control (1.4 BB/9), which makes up for his non-dominant strikeout rate (7.1 K/9). He will be 21 this season and seems likely to be starting games in Double-A at some point, possibly right out of the gate this season. He is considered one of the top arms in the Oakland system and the A's showed their faith in him by adding him to the 40-man roster in the winter in order to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.
