Yonder Alonso finds consistency offensively
Aug/28/12 09:20 PM Filed in: Yonder Alonso
Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso managed two hits for the third straight game Sunday against the Diamondbacks. Alonso has nine multi-hit games in August. He is batting .316 with two homers, four doubles, nine runs and nine RBI in 22 games this month.
Alonso has finally figured it out offensively. He has begun to hit with more consistency since late June. He is batting .311 with a .374 OBP, .468 slugging percentage and .843 OPS in his last 54 games. He is still lacking home run power, which is a huge drawback for a Fantasy first baseman. Alonso is not a must-start option because of his lack of power, but he can be use in deep mixed leagues.
