Alonso finished 3-for-4, including a two-RBI double and a run scored in Wednesday night's 8-0 win over Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

The bottom-half of the A's lineup hit the ball hard, churning out runs early and often, including Alonso's two-run double off starter Yordano Ventura in the top of the first to begin the rout -- the beginning of the end of a strong three-game series for the 29-year-old first baseman, as he tallied five hits (two doubles), five RBI and three runs scored while not recording a strikeout in 10 at-bats.

Alonso is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

A's manager Bob Melvin will keep Alonso on the bench with southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez on the hill for the Red Sox, enabling Danny Valencia to pick up a start at first base. Look for Alonso to draw back into the starting nine during Monday's series opener against the Angels, when the A's will take on right-hander Jered Weaver.

Alonso is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso will be Sunday's victim of the Athletics not having a DH spot available, as outfielder Danny Valencia will move in to take over at first base. Look for Alonso to be back in action Monday when the A's return to an AL ballpark in Houston.

Alonso went 2-for-4 on Friday night, including his seventh home run.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso's solo blast accounted for the only run the A's were able to scratch across Friday night. Alonso continues to hit in the middle of the A's lineup when they face a righty, but his lack of power and .683 OPS fails to provide much fantasy value, especially at a corner infield spot.

Alonso was 1-for-4 on Friday night, but his one hit was a two-run bomb off James Shields.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso now sits at a .255 on the season to go with his six homers. While his defense is excellent, his .371 slugging percentage and .687 OPS are very low from what is usually considered a power position. His lack of pop kills his fantasy value in all but the deepest of leagues.

Alonso is not in the lineup for Tuesday's contest with Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso is missing just his second start in the A's last 12 as Danny Valencia replaces him at first and bats cleanup. Alonso has been striking the ball well of late, collecting four multi-hit games in his last eight, slashing .357/.379/.607 during that time.
