Sandy Alcántara, star pitcher for the Marlins, receives the keys to Miami

Sandy Alcántara, the Marlins ace who won the National League Cy Young Award last season, received the keys to the city of Miami from Mayor Francis Suárez on Tuesday.

“His dedication has influenced hundreds, if not thousands of people in our community,” said Suárez, standing with Alcántara and Marlins general manager Kim Ng. “And he has established himself as a positive leader and role model.”

Suárez also stated that January 10 will be “Sandy Alcántara Day” in Miami.

Alcántara, 27, made history as the first Marlins pitcher to win the Cy Young Award. He did it by unanimous vote after putting up a league-high six complete games and covering a circuit-high 228 2/3 innings last season.

He was the 15th pitcher to win the award by unanimous vote, and he has said he hopes to win more.

“It’s a great day,” said the Dominican. “I will never forget. This key means a lot to me in my life.”

With about a month to go before the Marlins begin spring training, Alcántara has said that as long as he is healthy for next season, he is confident in his ability to emulate what he did in 2022, when he posted a 2.28 ERA.

His six complete games were the most in the majors since Chris Sale had six in 2016. His innings pitched and 14 wins were career-highs.

“I’ve been ready since it was just two weeks after the season ended,” Alcántara said. “I’m going to be ready because you never know what can happen.”
