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.
May 30 - 11:36 PM

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

In 11 games since May 15, Alonso has three homers and four multi-hit games. Owners in NL-only formats will want to start monitoring the first baseman's progress, though it's going to take more than moderate success over two weeks to win back our hearts. Despite the step forward, Alonso is still slashing just .206/.249/.329 with three total round-trippers and 14 RBI over 170 at-bats.
May 26 - 11:30 PM

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer of the year Friday as the Padres trounced the Cubs 11-1.

Alonso has two homers and two RBI over the last 10 days, so while he's still not hitting for average yet, the power gives the Padres at least a little reason for optimism. Right now, he's still at a dreadful .198/.238/.302 in 162 at-bats for the year.
May 24 - 1:51 AM

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Reds.

Alonso had an RBI single in the sixth inning and later added a solo home run in the eighth. The home run was his first of the year. The 27-year-old is still batting .200/.238/.289 on the year, but at least we are seeing some signs of life. He has four multi-hit games in his last six.
May 15 - 9:11 PM

Yonder Alonso reached all five times he was up Saturday, going 3-for-3 with an RBI and two walks.

Alonso also had a couple of doubles last night. Prior to that, he was hitting a disgusting .157/.183/.217 in 115 at-bats for the season. If not for the fact that he was out of options, he might have already been sent down to find his swing in Triple-A. Now that he's found it anyway, the Padres will probably stop giving him as many days off as they had been of late.
May 11 - 12:24 AM

Yonder Alonso played an inning at third base after coming off the bench Thursday against the Rockies.

It was Alonso's third career appearance at third; he played a full game there for the Reds in 2011 and also part of an inning there for the Padres last year. This gives him some extra eligibility and value in some fantasy leagues.
Apr 17 - 9:55 PM

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-2 and hit his third spring homer Friday against the Indians.

The Padres are leaning towards keeping Tommy Medica as an alternate first baseman and pinch-hitter, but Alonso is doing his best to show how unnecessary that would be by hitting .449 with three homers this spring.
Mar 29 - 1:31 AM

Yonder Alonso went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored as the Padres defeated the Royals 9-5 on Wednesday.

All three hits were singles. The effort boosted his average up to .426 in 47 at-bats. Alonso doesn't hit for the power typical of most first basemen, but does slightly better in the average and on-base departments, which helps him maintain value in fantasy leagues.
Mar 26 - 5:49 PM

Yonder Alonso smashed his second homer of the Cactus League season in a losing effort against the Royals on Sunday.

The 27-year-old finished the afternoon 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored. He's off to a strong start in Cactus League play, hitting .343 (12-for-35). Hitting in the middle of the Padres lineup, he has sneaky value in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
