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...

Yonder Alonso: 2013 Fantasy Sleeper

Once considered one of the best up-and-coming players in the game, Yonder Alonso has fallen off the map. Ranked by Baseball America as the top prospect in the Padres organization last year, Alonso slashed a decent .273/.348/.393 in his first full season in the majors. However, due to his lack of power (he only hit nine home runs last year) and the vast depth of the first base position...

Alonso doesn't take weight loss lightly

Yonder Alonso showed up for a promotion of Redsfest, the team's annual fan expo, noticeably thinner. Alonso vowed to come to spring training lighter and quicker to help with the shift from first base to left field. He hired a personal chef and tailored his workouts toward being an outfielder. The result? He's 18 pounds lighter than the 240 pounds he played at this season...

Yonder Alonso: Should he Stay or Should he Go?

Yonder Alonso must feel more like a grub worm than a professional baseball player right now. This due to the recent speculation claiming the team is dangling the prized prospect as their primary trade bait for pitching -- namely another top-notch starter and/or closer to fill the vacancy left behind by free agent Francisco Cordero. While there's no doubt Cincinnati'...

Alonso to Train with Wild Thing?

Just a little humor to brighten your day and get you ready for the weekend, but I saw this tweet and couldn't help but think of Yonder Alonso training and partying with Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn. I don't know what help he would be to Alonso as he prepares to play left field next season, considering Vaughn was a pitcher. In fact after a night with Vaughn/Sheen...
