|Hot streak not helping Yonder Alonso enough|
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(5/6/13) Currently the most-added first baseman in CBSSports.com leagues, Yonder Alonso parlayed a recent hot streak into increased Fantasy popularity. Even though he has cooled off over the last couple of games, Alonso still has driven in 12 runs over his last 12 games, while batting .310 over that period.
Even though the Padres don't boast the most potent of lineups, Alonso was bound to improve his run production, as he hit just .239 with runners in scoring position a year ago. He has improved that mark to .300 so far this season, though that covers just 40 at-bats. Otherwise, Alonso has displayed mediocre power for a first baseman, and with a .344 on-base percentage, he has not made the strides in his contact and walk rates that would make him a major threat to reach base frequently.
Despite the improved run production, Alonso still ranks just 16th among first basemen in standard points leagues. This may be about as good as it gets for Alonso this year, so his new owners shouldn't get too comfortable leaving him in their lineups.
|Yonder Alonso boosting RBI total|
|by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com|
(5/4/13) Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso homered for the second time in the past four games during San Diego's 7-6 victory over Arizona Friday night. He hit a go-ahead two-run homer off Wade Miley in the fifth inning for his fourth home run of the season.
Alonso, who has increased his batting average more than 30 points over his past 10 games, has also had 11 RBI during that stretch.
"(Miley was) locating pretty well early in the game," said Alonso, who is hitting .292. "I got a good fastball elevated middle in. He got me to foul some pitches inside. I wasn't catching up to it, but then I made a little adjustment."
|When Yonder Alonso homered five times in only 88 at-bats during a late-season trial with the Reds, he looked ready to anchor the middle of just about any lineup in baseball. Unfortunately, the presence of Joey Votto forced the Reds to make it someone else's lineup, and that lineup just so happened to line up in San Diego, where home runs go to die. It was a stark contrast from the bandbox of Great American Ballpark, and it showed in his numbers. In more than six times the at-bats he had in 2012, Alonso failed to hit even twice as many homers, his slugging percentage plummeting from .545 to .393. What's curious is that even though six of his nine homers came on the road, his slugging percentage was actually lower there than at home, which suggests he may have altered his swing to compensate for the cavernous PETCO Park. The one silver lining for Alonso is that the Padres opted to move in the fences in the offseason, so if he's able to recapture what he had in Cincinnati, he has a chance to get his career back on track. As he nears his 26th birthday, though, he won't get infinite chances. Until you see sure signs of a turnaround, you're probably better off leaving Alonso for NL-only leagues. (Updated 12/4/12)|
