Date:

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.
Aug 26 - 7:08 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.
Aug 14 - 3:13 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.
Aug 13 - 4:01 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.
Aug 12 - 11:38 PM

Yonder Alonso went 3-for-4 with a home run in a loss to the Twins on Tuesday.

The Padres managed 12 hits against Twins pitching, but Alonso's solo home run in the fifth was the only run the team could muster. It was his first home run since being activated from the disabled list on July 26. Alonso also doubled in the game, and the three-hit effort was his first since May 30. It raised his season line to a meager .225/.267/.372.
Aug 6 - 12:16 AM

Padres activated 1B Yonder Alonso from the 15-day disabled list.

Alonso had been on the shelf since the middle of June with tendinitis in his right wrist. Hand and wrist injuries have been known to sap hitters of their home run power, so don't expect Alonso to leave the yard much now that he's back with the Padres.
Jul 26 - 2:36 PM

Yonder Alonso (wrist) could rejoin the Padres over the weekend.

Alonso, who has been sidelined since mid-June, is currently finishing up a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso. Look for him to resume his role as the Padres everyday first baseman upon his return.
Jul 25 - 8:47 PM

Yonder Alonso has been sent to Triple-A El Paso to continue his rehab assignment.

Alonso, who went 3-for-8 with a homer in two games for the Rookie AZL Padres, has been on the shelf since mid-June due to right wrist tendinitis. He should return before the end of the month if all goes well.
Jul 20 - 1:59 PM

Padres placed 1B Yonder Alonso on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 17, with right wrist tendinitis.

It's not believed to be a major injury and Alonso is hoping to return as soon as his 15-day stint is over. But it's safe to wonder whether he'll have a starting job when he returns to full health. The 27-year-old owns a .210/.250/.341 batting line in 69 games this season -- pitiful numbers for a first baseman.
Jun 19 - 2:58 PM

Yonder Alonso is expected to land on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right wrist.

Alonso has been out since Monday with the wrist soreness and the Padres aren't seeing enough progress. Jake Goebbert will likely be called up in a corresponding move. Alonso, 27, is batting just .210/.250/.341 with five homers and 22 RBI in 69 games this season.
Jun 19 - 9:19 AM

Yonder Alonso hit a game-tying homer off Rafael Soriano in the ninth and walked in the 11th inning rally Saturday in the win over the Nationals.

Alonso still isn't hitting for average -- he's at .213 right now -- but he has hit five homers since May 15 after going the first month and a half without one. It's been enough to keep him in the lineup anyway.
Jun 8 - 1:42 AM

Yonder Alonso went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the White Sox.

Alonso also stole a base, his fifth of the season. The 27-year-old has had a really tough time getting it going this year, but he has showed some signs of life recently by hitting .429 (9-for-21) with three home runs over his last seven games.
