Yonder Alonso exits after HBP

Yonder Alonso was hit on the right wrist by a pitch Tuesday and exited the game. X-rays came back negative, and he's considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Impact

It appears that Alonso has avoided serious injury, though he could still require a day or two in order to recover. He's been a major surprise this season after changing his approach at the plate over the offseason. He's increased his power output immensely, leading to an OPS of 1.020. The advanced metrics seem to support this and show Alonso isn't a fluke. He should certainly be owned in all formats.

Yonder Alonso (knee) not in starting lineup Thursday

Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup for the Athletics game versus the Red Sox on Thursday. Ryon Healy is starting at first base.

Fantasy Impact

Alonso left Wednesday's game with a knee injury so he is getting a day off on Thursday to get some rest and allow it to heal. No word yet if Alonso will miss extended time so he should be considered day-to-day.

Yonder Alonso hitless in four at-bats Sunday

Yonder Alonso finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

A day after hitting his 12th home run of the season, Alonso didn't reach base in the loss. No matter; he's still going at a ridiculous rate in the heart of the A's order now leading the team in home runs, RBIs and in all three slashes with .291/.376/.664. Alonso appears to be dialed in for the long haul and fantasy owners are finally starting to buy in.

Yonder Alonso smacked his 10th and 11th home runs of the year

In a 7-3 loss to the Angels on Tuesday, Yonder Alonso went 2-for-3 (both hits went for homers) with two runs scored, three runs batted in and two walks.

Fantasy Impact

Alonso is surprisingly on fire at the plate right now sporting 11 home runs, 27 runs batted in, 16 runs and a .309 batting average on the season. He's currently a must-start fantasy player in all fantasy leagues.

Yonder Alonso goes yard again

Yonder Alonso finished 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the A's 8-6 walk-off win over the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

Another home run for Alonso who now boasts a tantalizing .311/.386/.667 line with nine home runs and 23 RBIs after homering in back-to-back games and in four of the last six. That is ridiculous when you consider he's just tied his career high in home runs. This power may be unprecedented but it is real thanks to his adjusted launch angle. He's finally getting swooped up in leagues so get him while the getting's good though keep an eye out for sell-high opportunities.
