|Yonder Alonso says he's become a 'smarter hitter' |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/24/14) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso admits to perhaps one benefit from missing so much time last season because of a hand injury. Alonso said sitting out made him a "smarter hitter."
"I think I became a smarter hitter during my injury," he said, per MLB.com. "I had to really focus on my plan and my approach. I became a better hitter with my hand and my eyes. Now, I'm doing to drive the ball into the gaps, make the pitcher work and see a lot of pitches. If I do that, I'm doing my job."
Alonso hasn't shown much home run power in his young career, but he feels that will develop over time.
"You need to be realistic with yourself," Alonso said. "I have power, plenty of it. [Home runs] are going to come. It will be fine."

(12/5/13) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso, who missed most of September with a right hand injury, put on a show in the batting cages at a philanthropic event Wednesday at Petco Park, declaring himself healthy in the process.
"It feels great," Alonso told the U-T San Diego. "I'm 100 percent. I'm healthy. I'm looking forward to getting started. I'm going to start doing my hitting stuff soon."
Alfonso originally broke his hand on June 1 but clearly wasn't the same player after he returned, slugging .306 in 43 games compared to .416 in 54 games before the injury.
"I had a lot of tendon issues going on in there," he said. "There was a lot of liquid."
Starting in place of Alonso in September, Tommy Medica put up good numbers for the Padres, but Alonso is epxected to be the team's starting first baseman to begin 2014.

(9/29/13) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso made his first appearance since Aug. 30 Saturday, scoring a run as a pinch runner in his team's 9-3 win over the Giants. Alonso has been out since August with hand soreness and is not expected to bat in Sundays' regular-season finale.
|Yonder Alonso likely limited to defense for rest of season |

(9/22/13) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso is unlikely to bat again in 2013, MLB.com reports. Alonso has been out since Aug. 30 with hand soreness and the injury has lingered throughout September.

|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(9/22/13) MLB.com reports that Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso is not expected to make any more plate appearances this season. Alonso has been battling a right hand injury and has not played in a game since Aug. 30.
Alonso's season may not be over, as he could still appear as a defensive replacement. Assuming he does not bat again, he will finish the year with a .281 batting average, six home runs and 45 RBI in 95 games.
|Yonder Alonso was limited to less than 100 games in 2013 because of issues with his right hand. He suffered a fractured right hand after getting hit by a pitch May 31. He missed about six weeks, but started to have more problems with his right hand in late August and made only two appearances (no starts) in September. The issues with his hand affected Alonso's power swing, as he had no home runs in his final 43 games after returning from the disabled list. Since arriving in San Diego in 2012, Alonso has been fairly disappointing offensively after slugging .545 in 47 games for Cincinnati in 2011. Alonso has hit .276 with a .384 slugging percentage, 15 home runs, 50 doubles and 107 RBI in 252 games with San Diego. He gets somewhat of a mulligan for last season because of the issues with his hand, but he hit just six home runs and had seven doubles in 54 games before getting hurt, so it's not like he was lighting it up for Fantasy owners. Consider Alonso more of a deep-league option on Draft Day.
