Alonso went 2-for-5 with one RBI and one run scored Sunday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso's eighth-inning single broke a 2-2 tie against Chicago and gave Oakland a lead it would not relinquish, as the A's went on to win 5-3. He entered with just four hits in his last 22 at-bats with no RBI over his previous six games, so perhaps he can return to the form that led to him hitting .292 in 249 plate appearances this season.

Alonso went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso provided Oakland's only extra-base hit on a night when they reached safely only seven times overall. The veteran first baseman's career year continues rolling along, as he's reached safely in the last 11 games in which he's registered an at-bat. Alonso has also also been making solid contact in June, as his .318/.400/.545 line for the month includes nine extra-base hits (six doubles, three home runs).

Alonso is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, John Hickey of the East Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Athletics providing no indication that Alonso is nursing an injury, it looks like he may just be receiving a day off to rest after starting nine consecutive contests. Ryon Healy will cover first base in the slugger's absence while Stephen Vogt sticks in the lineup as the designated hitter.

Alonso is open to signing a long-term deal with the Athletics, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The once hyped prospect was enduring a disappointing career before changing his swing and launch angle before this season. Alonso already has set a career best with 17 home runs and a .306/.398/.645 line in 211 plate appearances. Perhaps the best part of this year: He's hit 11 of his big flies at his pitcher-friendly home. Oakland does have some sneaky offensive firepower as a whole, especially with other long-term pieces like Ryon Healy and Khris Davis, so it wouldn't be the worst thing for Alonso to stick in this lineup for the near future. Still, considering Oakland is almost consistently rebuilding, this plan may never develop if they find an aggressive buyer later this summer.

Alonso went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run in Tuesday's 8-1 loss to the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso was the only Oakland player on base more than once in what was his Miami homecoming, and he crossed the plate with the team's only run of the night as well. After an excellent first two months of the season, the 30-year-old has kicked it up a notch further thus far in June, posting five multi-hit outings and hitting .375 over his first 45 plate appearances of the month.

Alonso went 3-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI during Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay in the first game of their doubleheader.

EDGE Analysis

The first baseman is in the midst of another heater and sports a .408/.453/.714 slash line with three home runs, six RBI and 11 runs through his past 14 games. Alonso has already blasted a career-high 16 homers this season, and in his age-30 campaign, he's finally living up to the pedigree he entered the league with as the seventh overall selection in the 2008 Amateur Draft.

Alonso is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays, John Hickey of the East Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso has been on a tear to begin the month, hitting .333/.391/.714 through six games with two home runs and six runs scored. However, his .207 season average against left-handers will force him to take a seat with southpaw Francisco Liriano on the mound for Toronto. Ryon Healy takes over at first base.

Alonso went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in Monday's 5-3 win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old's average is back over .300 after a red-hot start to June, with Monday's effort serving as his third multi-hit game in the last four. Alonso is hitting .389 overall in his last five contests and already has four extra-base hits (two doubles, two home runs) over that stretch as well.
