Alonso is out of the lineup for Thursday's series opener against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso will get a regular day off Thursday, as Danny Valencia gets the nod at first base. The 29-year-old has been playing well recently, notching three multi-hit games during his last nine starts and is hitting .256/.324/.356 on the season.

Alonso is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The Athletics have cooled on the idea of playing Danny Valencia regularly at third base, but since his bat still warrants everyday duties, he'll likely start to see most of his time at first base and DH. That could result in Alonso losing out on more at-bats, hindering his value in AL-only formats.

Alonso went 2-for-4 with a double and a pair of RBI during Thursday's 3-1 win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso made all the difference Thursday, giving Oakland the lead with an RBI double in the second and capping off the scoring with an infield single in the ninth. It's been a pretty lackluster season for Alsonso, who is hitting .249 with 24 RBI on the season, and he will likely hope to build a little momentum heading into the second half of the season.

Alsono was 1-for-3 with his second homer Wednesday night against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso has quietly turned around his season a bit, hitting .325 in June after hitting only .209 over the first two months of season. The surge has only been accompanied with only one homer in June, but with five doubles also, he has managed to post a .798 OPS for the month. With two homers and only 20 RBI on the season in 236 at-bats. Alonso does not provide nearly enough pop to man a corner infield in a fantasy lineup except for deep or only leagues, but he does provide small value in those leagues for a team desperate for some batting average help if he can keep up his recent work.

Alonso is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso's day off comes in the midst of one of his hottest stretches of the season, as he had produced multi-hit efforts in five of his past six starts. However, with southpaw John Lamb starting for the Reds, the Athletics will aim to limit the amount of lefty bats in their lineups, and thus, the right-handed hitting Billy Butler will replace Alonso at first base.

Alonso went 2-for-4 in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran extended his June hot streak, tallying his fourth multi-hit effort over the last five games. Alonso had failed to accomplish the feat in the 18 games prior, as he's largely struggled during his first season in an A's uniform. However, the tide appears to be turning in June, as Alonso is now hitting .455 (10-for-22) with three doubles, two RBI and three walks during the month, already raising his average 31 points in the process.

Alonso went 3-for-5 with a walk and a run scored in Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

It was a rare offensive outburst for the veteran third baseman, who's struggled throughout the season. Alonso is still hitting just .222 after Saturday's effort, with that figure representing a 47-point dip from this career .269 average. The performance was his first multi-hit outing since back on May 13 versus the Rays, and he still has just one homer and nine doubles overall over his 162 at-bats on the season.

Alonso is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

The A's are stacking their lineup with right-handers Wednesday as they face lefty Pat Dean and the Twins. With that, Alonso will take a seat in place of the right-handed Billy Butler, who has a .293 average and .789 OPS against southpaws this season.

Alonso is out of the lineup Friday against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The A's are in really rough shape at first base, as Alonso, who has been the starter for most of the season, is hitting just .230/.282/.320 on the season. The team is willing to deploy the defensively challenged Billy Butler at first Friday, which shows just how bad things have gotten.
