Yonder Alonso plated three runs in a 2-for-4 effort as the Padres ran roughshod over the Rockies 14-3 on Monday.

Alonso singled in two runs in the first inning and added a sacrifice fly in the second. The first baseman entered the season as one of the weaker-hitting players at his position but has been on fire in his first 52 plate appearances, carrying a .364/.453/.477 triple-slash line with one home run and seven RBI.

Yonder Alonso homered in a losing effort against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Alonso went 1-for-4 on the evening and his second-inning solo home run off of Rubby De La Rosa barely made a dent as the D'Backs were leading 4-0 at the time. Alonso has cooled off since back-to-back three-hit games in games two and three of the regular season, but is still batting a cool .360 (9-for-25).
Apr 14 - 1:34 AM

Yonder Alonso singled three times and walked in four plate appearances on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Alonso brought his Cactus League average up to .300 (12-for-40) with the effort, but he's only shown a modicum of power this spring with three doubles and a home run. Considering his position, Alonso's bat leaves much to be desired as he's yet to cross the 10-homer threshold over parts of five major league seasons.
Mar 26 - 7:44 PM

Yonder Alonso brought the wood in Sunday's loss to the Rockies, going 3-for-3 with three RBI.

Alonso cleared the bases, which were loaded at the time, with a double to right field in the first inning. He doubled again to lead off the third and singled in the fifth. Alonso had been hitless in his first six spring at-bats, so he brought his average all the way up to .333 with the performance.
Mar 8 - 8:12 PM

Padres and 1B Yonder Alonso avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.65 million contract.

The disappointing former top prospect batted just .240/.285/.397 during an injury-shortened 2014 season. He's slated to open 2015 as the starting first baseman.
Jan 16 - 3:15 PM

Yonder Alonso (wrist) recently told Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune that he feels "amazing."

Alonso required surgery in late August to repair a damaged tendon in his right forearm/wrist area, but he's already felt a world of difference since resuming activities in December. It's good news, but the 27-year-old owns a disappointing .271/.334/.395 batting line in the majors and could lose some playing time this season. He's off the radar in standard mixed fantasy leagues right now.
Jan 8 - 5:45 PM

Padres activated 1B Yonder Alonso from the 60-day disabled list.

Alonso underwent surgery in late August to repair a damaged tendon in his right forearm. He is expected to be ready for the start of spring training next February.

Padres transferred 1B Yonder Alonso from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Alonso underwent season-ending surgery last week to repair a damaged tendon in his right forearm. The 27-year-old is expected to be recovered by mid-October. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter.

Yonder Alonso will undergo surgery Friday to repair a damaged tendon in his right forearm.

He'll need 5-7 weeks of rehab, so Alonso's readiness for spring training won't be an issue. The first baseman will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason.
Tue, Aug 26, 2014 07:08:00 PM

Yonder Alonso will miss the rest of the season after tests revealed damage to the tendon in his right forearm.

He'll undergo a second opinion, but it's possible Alonso will need surgery. Alonso has regressed in each of his seasons with the Padres and will end the 2014 campaign with a .240/.285/.397 batting line. He's also failed to play in 100 games each of the last two years due to injury. Tommy Medica and Jake Goebbert will share first base for the remainder of the season for the Padres.

Padres placed 1B Yonder Alonso on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm.

Alonso suffered the injury on Tuesday night. He had an MRI on Wednesday, but the Padres still aren't sure how long he might be sidelined. The 27-year-old first baseman is batting just .240/.285/.397 in 84 games this season.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 03:13:00 PM

Yonder Alonso (forearm) will undergo a second MRI on Wednesday.

Alonso left Tuesday's game with a right forearm strain and Padres manager Bud Black admitted that things are "not looking good in the short term" for the first baseman. He's likely headed to the disabled list, but it won't become official until after the second MRI.
Wed, Aug 13, 2014 04:01:00 PM

Yonder Alonso (forearm) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

Alonso exited Tuesday's game versus the Rockies with what's being called a right forearm strain. He missed over a month of action with tendinitis in his right wrist earlier this season, and Padres manager Bud Black indicated that it was a similar issue. Thus, the disabled list looks like a real possibility.

Yonder Alonso left Tuesday's game versus the Rockies with a right forearm strain.

It's not clear how Alonso suffered the injury, nor is it clear how long he might be sidelined. More should be known after the game. It's been an injury-shortened, disastrous season for Alonso, who's batting just .240/.285/.397.
