Report: Sandy Alcantara, Marlins near 5-yr. extension

The Marlins and ace Sandy Alcantara are nearing an agreement on a five-year contract extension worth north of $55 million, according to a report by SportsGrid’s Craig Mish. The club has not confirmed the report.

Alcantara is arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason, and he cannot become a free agent until after the 2024 season. If signed, this would mark the second extension the Marlins have completed so far this offseason. In October, Miami signed shortstop and unofficial captain Miguel Rojas to a deal that will keep him in South Florida through ‘23.

On Friday at the organization’s annual Home Plate Meals Thanksgiving Distribution, Alcantara mentioned that talks had been taking place over the past couple of weeks. He went on to say he was confident a deal would get done.

“I just want to be here for a long time,” Alcantara said. “If we get an agreement, I will feel blessed, because I want to be here for the rest of my life.”
