Yonder Alonso: Will Enter Spring Training Healthy

Alonso will enter spring training next Tuesday, Feb. 18, with a fully healed right hand, MLB.com reports.

Alonso was hit by a pitch on May 31 last season, which forced a lengthy stay on the DL and afflicted him for the remainder of the year, including no plate appearances after Aug. 30. The offseason has provided more than enough time for a full recovery from the fracture in his right hand, and he'll attempt to play just the second full campaign of his career in 2014. If he returns to his 2012 form, when he belted 39 doubles and nine long balls in 549 at-bats, Alonso will be of value in the majority of formats.
