Game #128: Yonder Plays Cardinals By Himself, A's Lose 3-1

Well, technically, Crisp, Healy and Semien each had a hit in tonight's game, but Yonder Alonso was the entire offense with his two hits and one home run, accounting for half of the A's hits and all of their runs. Let's be honest, not a real interesting night. Although, if you're looking for silver linings in late August, Ross Detwiler didn't totally suck. So there's that. Happy...

Sunday Notes: Yonder, Yankees, Dodgers, Pitch Selection, more

Yonder Alonso hasn’t been dealt a generous hand. Drafted seventh overall by the Reds in 2008 out of the University of Miami, the Cuban-born first baseman was shipped to San Diego three years later. The trade took him from one of baseball’s most hitter-friendly venues to one of its least friendly. Last winter, the Padres sent Alonso to the A’s, who play in an equally unforgiving...

WATCH: Aaron Hicks guns down runner at plate with 105.5 mph throw

One of the Yankees’ strengths this season was supposed to be their defense, but it’s been anything but that in the early going. That doesn’t mean there hasn’t been any bright spots, though, and one of the most impressive plays of the season came from the right arm of Aaron Hicks on Wednesday night. The Yankees were having a disaster of an inning in the fourth, with the previously...

Oakland A's and 1B Yonder Alonso agree on $2.65 million deal

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) First baseman Yonder Alonso and the Oakland Athletics have agreed on a $2.65 million, one-year contract, avoiding salary arbitration. Alonso was acquired in a trade with San Diego last month that also brought reliever Mark Rzepczynski to Oakland and sent pitcher Drew Pomeranz to the Padres. In 2015, Alonso hit .282 with five home runs and 31 RBIs in 103 games...

San Diego Padres: Alonso’s stalled season

Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso has long been somewhat of a punching bag for the fan Yonder Alonso base ever since he was acquired as part of the Mat Latos trade in 2011. Most of the scorn had to do with then-general manager giving up on top prospect Anthony Rizzo after only a handful of at-bats. Byrnes flipped Rizzo to the Chicago Cubs for right-hander Andrew Cashner, and it’s...

San Diego Padres: position battle: first base

Yonder Alonso What a disaster this position’s been the last few years for the San Diego Padres. Since then-General Manager Jed Hoyer traded Adrian Gonzalez after the 2010 season, a collection of players ranging from dreadful (Brad Hawpe) to underdeveloped (Anthony Rizzo) to painfully average (Yonder Alonso) have manned first base in San Diego. This year looks like more of the...

What Jim Murray Never Wrote about Yonder Alonso

Yonder Alonso may not look or hit like a big-league first baseman, but that’s what the cigar-shaped kid from Havana is. Most nights, despite possessing the power of a hotel hair dryer, the man who runs with a Steinway on his back can be found in the heart of Bud Black’s lineup. And oh, what a piano! One year, he knocked 150 hits and scored 47 runs. That’s not a record, but...
