Alonso is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Alonso doesn't typically hit the bench against right-handed pitching, but the Indians elected to give him a day off against Kyle Gibson following a string of eight consecutive starts. Edwin Encarnacion will man first base in place of Alonso, who went 10-for-31 with two home runs and seven RBI over that eight-game stretch to prop his OPS up to .769 for the season.
