Athletics' Yonder Alonso: Notably improved offensively this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso, who went 2-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, a walk and three runs in Thursday's 15-5 Cactus League win over the Brewers, is showing significant improvement at the plate this spring, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports. "He's had a great approach from the minute he got here," manager Bob Melvin said. "He and Bushy (hitting coach Darren Bush) had a plan. He's using the whole field a little bit more, which keeps him on breaking balls, which allows him to track fastballs a little bit more. He's hit a couple balls good to left-center as well."

Alonso has never hit double-digit homers in a major league career that dates back to 2010, but he's already smacked four round-trippers in 17 spring games, in part due to the revamped approach he's utilized at the plate. The veteran first baseman already brings excellent defensive skills to the table, so any notable measure of offensive improvement would boost his value even further. He remains slated for the left-handed side of a platoon role at first base with Ryon Healy and will look to improve on last season's mediocre .316 OBP in the coming season.

Athletics' Yonder Alonso: Three-run homer Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 9-8 Cactus League victory over the Cubs.

Alonso launched his second round-tripper of spring over the right-field fence and is one of Oakland's hottest hitters this spring, as he sports a .421/.560/.789 line over 19 at-bats. The veteran first baseman could be primed for a bounce-back campaign at the plate after seeing downturns in average, OBP, slugging, OPS and walk rate last season compared to the numbers he'd generated in his final Padres campaign in 2015.

Athletics' Yonder Alonso: Launches first home run of spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a 6-1 Cactus League victory over the Giants on Friday.

Alonso went deep for the first time this spring by launching a Jeff Samardzija pitch to left in the second to open the scoring on the day. The 29-year-old first baseman re-upped with Oakland this offseason on a one-year, $4 million deal after slashing .253/.316/.367 with 34 doubles, seven homers and 56 RBI over 156 games in his 2016 debut campaign with the club. Alonso remains atop the depth chart at first base, with the emerging Ryon Healy, who also homered in Friday's win, capable of serving as a right-handed option against southpaws.

Athletics' Yonder Alonso: Inks new deal with Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alonso agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with the A's, avoiding arbitration, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Alonso was considered a potential non-tender candidate, so this deal allows him to stay on in Oakland for a second season with the A's. The 29-year-old played in a career-high 156 games and posted a .253/.316/.367 line with seven home runs last season, and he figures to once again serve as the primary option at first base in 2017.

Athletics' Yonder Alonso: Collects three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The bottom-half of the A's lineup hit the ball hard, churning out runs early and often, including Alonso's double off starter Yordano Ventura in the top of the first to begin the rout -- the two-run liner to left was 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.
