Yonder Alonso says he's become a 'smarter hitter'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) 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."
