Yonder Alonso 1B SD 3 Days

Padres activated 1B Yonder Alonso from the 15-day disabled list.

Alonso had been on the shelf since the middle of June with tendinitis in his right wrist. Hand and wrist injuries have been known to sap hitters of their home run power, so don't expect Alonso to leave the yard much now that he's back with the Padres.

Yonder Alonso (wrist) could rejoin the Padres over the weekend.

Alonso, who has been sidelined since mid-June, is currently finishing up a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso. Look for him to resume his role as the Padres everyday first baseman upon his return.

Yonder Alonso (wrist) has been sent to Triple-A El Paso to begin a rehab assignment.

Alonso has been on the shelf since mid-June due to right wrist tendinitis but has progressed to the point that he's ready for game action. He should return before the end of the month if all goes well.

Padres placed 1B Yonder Alonso on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 17, with right wrist tendinitis.

It's not believed to be a major injury and Alonso is hoping to return as soon as his 15-day stint is over. But it's safe to wonder whether he'll have a starting job when he returns to full health. The 27-year-old owns a .210/.250/.341 batting line in 69 games this season -- pitiful numbers for a first baseman.

Yonder Alonso is expected to land on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right wrist.

Alonso has been out since Monday with the wrist soreness and the Padres aren't seeing enough progress. Jake Goebbert will likely be called up in a corresponding move. Alonso, 27, is batting just .210/.250/.341 with five homers and 22 RBI in 69 games this season.

Yonder Alonso hit a game-tying homer off Rafael Soriano in the ninth and walked in the 11th inning rally Saturday in the win over the Nationals.

Alonso still isn't hitting for average -- he's at .213 right now -- but he has hit five homers since May 15 after going the first month and a half without one. It's been enough to keep him in the lineup anyway.

Yonder Alonso went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the White Sox.

Alonso also stole a base, his fifth of the season. The 27-year-old has had a really tough time getting it going this year, but he has showed some signs of life recently by hitting .429 (9-for-21) with three home runs over his last seven games.

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

In 11 games since May 15, Alonso has three homers and four multi-hit games. Owners in NL-only formats will want to start monitoring the first baseman's progress, though it's going to take more than moderate success over two weeks to win back our hearts. Despite the step forward, Alonso is still slashing just .206/.249/.329 with three total round-trippers and 14 RBI over 170 at-bats.

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 and hit his second homer of the year Friday as the Padres trounced the Cubs 11-1.

Alonso has two homers and two RBI over the last 10 days, so while he's still not hitting for average yet, the power gives the Padres at least a little reason for optimism. Right now, he's still at a dreadful .198/.238/.302 in 162 at-bats for the year.

Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Reds.

Alonso had an RBI single in the sixth inning and later added a solo home run in the eighth. The home run was his first of the year. The 27-year-old is still batting .200/.238/.289 on the year, but at least we are seeing some signs of life. He has four multi-hit games in his last six.
