The Miami Marlins reportedly placed two key players on the injured list Wednesday.
Starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara reportedly landed on the 15-day injured list due to a right forearm flexor strain, according to the Miami Herald's Jordan McPherson. Outfielder and designated hitter Jorge Soler will be out 10 days due to a right oblique strain, per McPherson.
It's unclear when or how Alcantara sustained the injury. He pitched eight innings in a 6-4 win over the Washington Nationals on Sunday. Alcantara, who'll turn 28 on Thursday, has pitched 184 2/3 innings this season for the Marlins, with 151 strikeouts and a .368 ERA. He won the 2022 National League Cy Young Award and made his second All-Star team in 2022.
The Marlins sit third in the NL East, with a 71-67 record, and are a half-game back of the Cincinnati Reds for the final NL wild-card spot.
