Alonso (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Monday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

This is simply a procedural move to free up a 40-man roster spot, as Alonso was already ruled out for the year after undergoing surgery on his forearm last week. Alonso underwhelmed in his 84 games this season (.240/.285/.397), and he's by no means assured of a starting job heading into 2015.

Alonso (forearm) will undergo season-ending surgery Friday, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports.

Things have been trending this way for a while, but a date is now set for Alonso to undergo surgery on his injured forearm. A recovery timetable has been set at 5-to-7 weeks, meaning Alonso should be back at 100 percent well ahead of spring training. Jake Goebbert, Tommy Medica and Yasmani Grandal will likely all factor in at first base over the final month of the season.

Alonso (forearm) will likely undergo season-ending surgery next week, MLB.com's Corey Brock reports.

The projected surgery would have a four month rehab window, which would allow for Alonso to be ready for spring training. Tommy Medica and Jake Goebbert will play first base for the Padres down the stretch.

Alonso (forearm) will not play again in the 2014 season, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Alonso is dealing with a damaged forearm tendon, and corrective surgery has yet to be ruled out. He'll get a second opinion in the near future, but it seems clear that he won't take the field for the Padres again this season. The announcement means more playing time for the likes of Tommy Medica and Jake Goebbert, while Yasmani Grandal may see some extra first base work as well.

Alonso (forearm) is headed to the 15-day disabled list, MLB.com's Corey Brock reports.

Alonso received a second MRI on his injured forearm Wednesday, and it appears the results were not favorable. It remains to be seen how much time Alonso will miss with the setback, but he will be out at least the next two weeks. Tommy Medica and Jake Goebbert figures to see more playing time in Alonso's absence.

Alonso will receive a second MRI on his strained right forearm Wednesday, MLB.com's Corey Brock reports. "It's not looking good in the short term," manager Bud Black stated.

Alonso's injury appears to have more of an effect on his tendon/muscle than the bone, so the team will conduct a second set of tests. No timetable will be proposed until the results come back, but fantasy owners may want to begin considering a backup plan, as his current status doesn't seem promising.

Alonso had an MRI performed on his strained right forearm after Tuesday's win versus the Rockies, MLB.com reports.

Alonso has already required a stay on the disabled list this season due to a sore right wrist, and manager Bud Black relayed Tuesday that the first baseman's ailment is in the same region. The exam should shed light on the extent of the injury, but consider Alonso day-to-day until his fate is revealed. His removal in the fourth inning prompted Tommy Medica to man first, which may also be covered by Jacob Goebbert or Yasmani Grandal.

Alonso left Tuesday's game with a right forearm strain, the Union Tribune's Dennis Lin reports.

He left early in the game, possibly suffering the injury during his first at-bat, and was replaced at first base by Tommy Medica. He's considered day-to-day for now, but he could wind up needing a DL stint.

Alonso has cobbled together a .429/.467/.750 line with one home run, one triple, and four doubles in 28 at-bats since his activation from the DL on July 26.

After missing more then a month due to right wrist soreness, Alonso has managed a hit in seven of 10 appearances. On the other hand, he's been held to the pine against both left-handed starters, as well as one righty, during that 11-game stretch, which forecasts his usage going forward. As long as he's hitting, though, he should be utilized in numerous formats.

Alonso was basically the only offense for the Padres Tuesday, as he went 3-for-4 at the plate while hitting his sixth home run of the year and adding a double in the Padres' 3-1 loss to the Twins.

Although he had a fine performance Tuesday, it has been another rough season for Alonso, as he has battled injuries and consistency all year. Alonso now owns a pedestrian .225/.267/.372 slash line in 253 at-bats this year.
