Padres | Yonder Alonso sitting out

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 07:23:36 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is out of the lineup Thursday, July 30, with C Derek Norris filling in at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Norris ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting second against left-hander Jon Niese. He's hitting just .154 this month and hasn't overwhelmed against lefties with a .257-1-5 clip. He's not a good option on FantasyScore today.

Padres | Yonder Alonso leading off vs. Cards

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:17:53 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is leading off against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: With minimal pop potential, Alonso's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) .310 batting average and .399 on-base percentage profile nicely atop the San Diego lineup. He is a low-end first base option in all formats, and he likely isn't worth targeting in FantasyScore contests Friday against Wacha.

Padres | Yonder Alonso sitting out vs. Cards

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:26:20 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. C Austin Hedges draws into the lineup behind the plate with C Derek Norris playing first base. Norris is batting second, and Hedges is batting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Tim Cooney Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Alonso ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is having one of the best runs of his career and sports a respectable .310/.396/.402 slash line this season. Just don't count on much help in the home run or stolen base columns. Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a .305 OPS this season, so FantasyScore players should look elsewhere. Norris ($4,800, 9.6% of cap), on the other hand, has a career .374 wOBA and .857 OPS against southpaws and is an excellent option for daily players Thursday.

Padres | Yonder Alonso good on the road

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 11:22:19 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso was 1-for-3 with a walk Wednesday, June 24, and he has a line of .382/.481/.472 with five doubles, one home run and 13 RBI in 26 road games this year, which is the second best road average and on-base percentage of any player with at least 100 plate appearances this year. He's reached base safely in 10 straight road starts since June 8, hitting .324 over that span. Alonso has reached base safely in 29 of his last 30 starts on the road dating back to July 26 of last year.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been helping his owners with a high average but not much else. He has only two home runs and 18 RBI. His .366 average on balls in play is due for a strict correction, too, and when that happens, he'll be an empty fantasy commodity. For that reason, he's strictly a source of cap relief on FantasyScore without much upside.

Padres | Yonder Alonso batting third vs. Giants

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:17:42 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is batting third against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been one of the few bright spots in the Padres' lineup this season, and he receives a boost hitting in a prime lineup spot Wednesday. Still, at first base, it is often wiser to aim higher, especially in FantasyScore contests. Alonso checks out as a low-end option at first base in all formats, as he really only tips the scales in batting average at this point.

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 13:00:36 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is back in the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, June 21, batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) was out of the lineup Saturday, June 20, in favor of Derek Norris, who was making a rare start at first base. Alonso is batting .380 on the road this season and is 1-for-5 in his career against Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson.

Padres | Yonder Alonso out Saturday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 15:10:23 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is out of the starting lineup Saturday, June 20, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. C Derek Norris will start at first base, while C Austin Hedges will start behind the plate and bat eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hedges ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just one hit since May 10, and he shouldn't be getting any FantasyScore consideration.

Padres | Yonder Alonso at 3B

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 10:22:15 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is in at third base and hitting fifth Thursday, June 18, against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .317 but has just two homers and 18 RBI on the season. He's not a great option on FantasyScore with the power outage, but this is his second game at third. The added flexibility if he gains 3B eligibility could come in handy.

Padres | Yonder Alonso back in lineup

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 16:27:43 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is back in the starting lineup Saturday, June 13, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Alonso will start at third base and hit fifth in the lineup against RHP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 0-for-his-last-10, but he was 10-for-30 in his first six games after returning to the lineup. Alonso has high upside as a GPP play, but he can be avoided against Greinke.
