An often-overlooked part of Oakland's wheely-dealy offseason, righthander Raul Alcantara is a flamethrowing righthander with very hot stuff that he's still learning how to control. He's got a near-perfect pitcher's body and seems to show an ability to learn from coaching, an ability that shouldn't be taken for granted among the young and naturally talented. While we're not confident he will stick as a starter, he should benefit from Oakland's clever approach to pitching development, so even the 'bad' result should allow him to become a strong piece of a vibrant young bullpen in just another couple of years.
