Yonder Alonso hits extra-inning bomb Sunday

Yonder Alonso finished 2-for-6 in Sunday's game against the Astros, belting a solo shot against Colin McHugh in the 13th inning to tie the ballgame. The Indians went on to win in the next inning, 10-9.

Fantasy Impact

Alonso has been on a roll these past couple games, hitting two homers with four RBI. While he certainly can hit lefties better (.178 average), Alonso is a great source of power at a premium power position. Hitting behind the first four batters in the Tribe lineup does not hurt matters, either. Keep an eye on him in 12-team leagues and deeper.

Yonder Alonso goes yard Saturday

Yonder Alonso hit a two-run shot off of Lance McCullers in the fourth inning of Saturday's game against the Astros. He also walked once and struck out once in the 8-6 win.

Fantasy Impact

Alonso has been heating up lately, hitting .357 with a homer and five RBI over the past week. Even with this nice week, he is only hitting .230. However, his power stroke is alive and well, as he has ten homers. Look for that average to tick up once his .235 BABIP picks up.

Yonder Alonso has big game Tuesday

Yonder Alonso went 3-for-4 in Tuesday’s beatdown of the Cubs, hitting a double and two singles. He scored twice and drove in three in the 10-1 rout.

Fantasy Impact

Alonso has had his power stroke going this year, but not much else. Even with this nice game, he is only hitting .227. He does have nine bombs and 26 RBI in the middle of the order for the Tribe. Alonso will be a useful fantasy asset if he can bring that average up while keeping the power stroke.

Yonder Alonso pinch hits, goes 2-for-3

Yonder Alonso pinch hit for Erik Gonzalez in the sixth, then promptly hit two singles. Unfortunately, he did not score or drive in any runs, and the Indians lost to the Tigers 9-8.

Fantasy Impact

Alonso is middling along, hitting .226/.291/.453 with nine homers. To take the next step, he has to start hitting lefties, as he is only hitting .175 against them this year. Alonso belongs on your bench or the waiver wire for now.

Yonder Alonso homers and scores twice Friday

Fantasy Impact
