The Miami Marlins and right-hander Sandy Alcantara are closing in on a five-year contract extension, sources told SportsGrid's Craig Mish.

The deal is expected to be worth more than $55 million, Mish reports.

Alcantara's extension will cover all three of his arbitration-eligible seasons and delay his free agency by at least two campaigns. He was scheduled for his first arbitration year this winter.

The Marlins consider the 25-year-old an integral part of their talented young pitching staff. Alcantara was the only member of the club's rotation to make at least 30 starts, throw more than 200 innings, and tally 200 strikeouts in 2021.

An All-Star in 2019, Alcantara owns a career 3.49 ERA, 4.04 FIP, and 1.22 WHIP with 431 strikeouts across 487 1/3 innings with the Marlins.
