Alonso went 1-for-3 with a walk. He also drove in a run.

Fantasy Impact: He is a solid real life player but his lack of counting stats at position where fantasy owners tend to get production from makes him less valuable in the fantasy realm.

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 with a run scored. The Nationals held San Diego down for the most part so despite his two hits, he was not confronted with a lot of great opportunities to pad his counting stats outside of trying to hit a HR which is not his game.

Fantasy Impact: He is still a solid average guy who is more valuable to the Padres than to fantasy owners.

Yonder Alonso with a HR Monday

Alonso went 2-for-4 with a solo HR. He scored two runs in the game.

Fantasy Impact: The HR was only his fifth of the season which is very low for a first basemen. He has a solid batting average and will have some solid games. Despite his benefits, first base is a solid fantasy position so there are a lot of leagues where there are enough better options to keep him from being a big factor.

Alonso went 2-for-5 on Tuesday. He drove in two runs and scored two others.

Fantasy Impact: He is still someone who can help you in batting average if you need it but he is just simply not getting enough counting stats for a first baseman in most leagues.

Alonso with 2-for-5 day on Wednesday. One of his hits was a solo HR which was his fourth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Alonso is a high average hitter with little power. His usefulness in medium leagues depends on the makeup of the individual team looking at him.

Yonder Alonso with a HR Friday

Alonso went 1-for-4 with a solo HR on Friday. His HR ended up being the game winning run.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the HR, do not count on him as a power source, as it was only his third of the season. He is a strong batting average player who has a place on a roster in certain leagues to help balance out some of the high power but poor average hitters.

Yonder Alonso went 0-for-2 but drew three walks, one of which lead to his scoring a run.

Fantasy Impact: He is a solid player in batting average but he is even better in OBP leagues. He is not a star but he can help some teams depending on the league.

ALonso went 2-for-3 with a walk in the 2-1 loss. He managed to score the only run the Padres got.

Fantasy Impact: He still is not elite or even strong. However, he has his place in deeper leagues and the possible addition of 3B eligibility in some leagues adds even more value. If he has 3B eligibility, then he becomes a possibility for a CI spot in medium leagues. He also can serve as a counter-balance if you have a team with a lot of power but a need for someone to raise your position in BA, as he is hitting .307 so far this season.

He went 2-for-5 Saturday with two runs scored and a RBI. In his past 10 games, he has reached base via a hit or walk 17 times.

Fantasy Impact: He still is not elite or even strong. However, he has his place in deeper leagues and the possible addition of 3B eligibility in some leagues adds even more value. If he gets 3B eligibility, then he becomes a possibility for a CI spot in medium leagues. He also can serve as a counter-balance if you have a team with a lot of power but a need for someone to raise your position in BA, as he is hitting .324 so far this season.

Yonder Alonso went 1-for-5 with a run scored Thursday. He has gotten a hit in eight of his last nine games. In those nine games, he has gotten 10 hits and five walks.

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 with a run scored in the 7-2 defeat.

Fantasy Impact: He still is not elite or even strong. However, he has his place in deeper leagues and the possible addition of 3B eligibility if they give him enough starts there to qualify in your setup adds even more value.

Yonder Alonso has gone 4-for-11 in his past three games with a walk on top. He is also getting some starts at third base.

Yonder Alonso in cold spell

Over his last 4 games, Alonso is 0-for-10. He is still batting .331.

Fantasy Impact: The way he was swinging the bat through Tuesday, it was hardly surprising for him to cool down. He is someone to watch in deeper leagues and could be rostered in deep leagues that have the CI slot.

 

Alonso went 2-for-5 with a RBI in the 6-5 loss.

Fantasy Impact: He is continuing to produce. He was once a touted prospect so there is reason to have hope that he might stay a viable player in deep leagues with a CI spot and NL-only leagues.

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-3 with a walk as well as scoring a run. He scored on Spangenberg's hit for the first run of the game. He later got on base representing the tying run in the ninth before being lifted for a pinch runner who eventually scored.

Fantasy Impact: After a slow game on Sunday, Alonso bounced back on Monday. As long as he keep producing, he is a viable first base or corner infielder option in deeper leagues.

Yonder Alonso went 3-for-5 with a grand slam in a 9-7 victory Saturday. The grand slam turned a four run deficit into a tie ballgame.

Fantasy Impact: Alonso continues to swing a hot bat since his return from the DL. He is starting to make a case for upgrading his place among first basemen and fulfilling his earlier potential.

During the 6-2 victory the San Diego Padres achieved Friday, Alonso continued to contribute. He went 1-for-3 along with a first inning walk that drove in the first run of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Since coming back from the DL, Alonso has certainly helped both his real life team and his fantasy owners. In the three games since the return, he has gone 5-for-10 with three runs scored and two RBI. I am still not sold on him in shallow leagues but he is worth monitoring, in case he is finally living up to his potential.

Fantasy Impact: He is a former 1st round pick who came with some solid hype. He has never broken out but his performance this season when healthy has been the best statistically of his career, albeit in limited time. His ratios will likely fall from their current lofty heights but if you are hurting at 1B or CI in a very deep league, he might be worth a stash in case of a sudden emergence of the talent that some believed he possessed coming into the league.

Yonder Alonso getting hot

Fri, Mar 27th 10:56am EDT
By Ruben Vazquez

Yonder jumped his avg. to .300 yesterday with a 3 hit performance against the D-Backs. About 10 days a go it was .217, and it looked like he might be out of the starting role. His past 10 days could really help him fend off Tommy Medica and Carlos Quentin for the 1st base job.

Fantasy Impact: I do not think Yonder Alonso is worth drafting but if you have someone that is hurt or suspended like Chris Davis, then I would look at Yonder to keep his bat hot to start the season.

Yonder Alonso struck out twice, going 0-3 against the Indians in Sunday's Cactus League game.

Fantasy Impact: This was the third consecutive game that Yonder Alonso failed to record a hit. The Padres say they are committed to him at 1B but they will need an improvement on the 22 HR he has managed over his three seasons as a Padre. Yangervis Solarte and Carlos Quentin have also played games at 1B this spring.

Yonder Alonso hit a big double with bases loaded to bring in 3 runs today and ended up 3 for 3, with two doubles with 3 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: After going hitless in his first six spring at bats Yonder came to play today. He wants to claim first base for the Padres, but it will take more than one good outing. He just doesn't have enough upside to make him worthy of a roster spot in most formats.

Alonso goes 0-3 in the spring opener, striking out twice.

Fantasy Impact: Alonso needs to hit this spring or he will not be the Opening Day first baseman. He's not a viable fantasy option at this point.

Fantasy Impact: Alonso has been a disappointment, neither showing power nor average since coming to San Diego. The opportunity is there for Alonso, as he might be batting 5th hitting right after Justin Upton. If Alonso's potential is met, the Padres lineup could be very good. There is not a good chance that Alonso has a big season, though, and is not worth more than a CI in an NL-only league
