Alonso went 2-for-4 with a home run in Saturday's 6-4 victory over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso has played in four of Seattle's last five games. In that time he's mashed the ball, having gone 6-for-12 with three home runs and four RBI. Heading into the year, Alonso had never hit more than nine home runs in a season, so 2017's total of 28 certainly comes as a surprise.

Alonso went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 7-1 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso's 385-foot shot to right in the fourth snapped a 15-game homerless drought. The veteran slugger has cooled off overall in September, but he's hit safely in three of his past four games and now has a career high in RBI (64).

Alonso is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso has struggled against southpaws all season, hitting just .183/.266/.423 in 71 at-bats, so get the day off with lefty Cole Hamels toeing the rubber for the Rangers. In his place, Danny Valencia is starting at first base and batting sixth.

Alonso is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, according to Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso is just 13-for-70 (.186) against left-handers this season, so he will be held out Tuesday with the Mariners taking on southpaw Martin Perez. Danny Valencia will get the start at first base in Alonso's place.

Alonso went 3-for-4 with three RBI from a bases-clearing double in Thursdays' 10-4 win over the Rangers. He also walked and stole a base.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso was an integral component of another Mariners' offensive explosion, extending Seattle's lead to 5-1 with his fifth-inning two-bagger with the bases loaded. The 30-year-old feasted on Rangers pitching over the last two games of the four-game set, going 5-for-8 with Thursday's three RBI, a walk and a run. Alonso also has a trio of multi-hit efforts thus far in September, although he's notched only two extra-base hits (one double, one home run) in 37 plate appearances during the month.

Alonso is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

With Martin Perez, a southpaw, starting for Texas, Alonso will head to the bench while Danny Valencia starts at first base. The right-handed Charlie Morton is scheduled to start when the Mariners face the Astros on Thursday, so look for Alonso to return then.
