  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: On bench with knee issue

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that Alberto is available off the bench for Sunday's game against the Padres in a pinch-hitting capacity due to a knee issue, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    With left-hander MacKenzie Gore on the hill for San Diego, the righty-hitting Alberto would have been a candidate to pick up a start, but the knee issue thwarted those plans. Roberts relayed that Alberto has responded well since receiving a pain-killing injection to address the soreness in the knee, so the 29-year-old doesn't look as though he'll be in danger of landing on the injured list.

  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: Hits second home run

    Alberto went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 7-4 loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Alberto went deep off Kyle Freeland in the second inning to pick up his second home run and fifth RBI of the season. The bench player got a start at second base with Cody Bellinger out of the lineup for a breather. Alberto is slashing .233/.243/.356 on the season.

  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: Activated by Dodgers

    Alberto (personal) was activated from the paternity list Saturday.

    Alberto will rejoin the active roster after he spent three days away from the team following the birth of his child. The 29-year-old typically plays against left-handed pitchers and has hit .242 with a homer, seven runs and four RBI over 34 games this season.

  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: Going on paternity list

    The Dodgers will place Alberto on the paternity list Wednesday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Orange County Register reports.

    Alberto, who typically plays against left-handed pitching, will be away from the team for up to three days. Eddy Alvarez, Stefen Romero and Trayce Thompson are candidates to get extra work in the short term.

  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: Knocks first homer as Dodger

    Alberto went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Pirates.

    Batting out of the No. 9 slot, Alberto was one of two Dodgers to collect multiple hits in the contest. He produced the team's first run when he took Zach Thompson deep to left field in the fifth inning. The homer was Alberto's first of the season and 18th as a major-leaguer across 1,218 career at-bats.

  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: Draws ninth start of season

    Alberto will start at second base and bat ninth in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Diamondbacks, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    He'll crack the lineup for only the ninth time all season, with all of his starts coming out of the No. 7 spot in the batting order or lower. Alberto should retreat to his normal bench role for the nightcap Tuesday, when Gavin Lux is expected to re-enter the starting nine after sitting out the matinee affair.

  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: Second start coming soon

    Manager Dave Roberts said he expects to include Alberto in the starting lineup Tuesday against Atlanta, Eric Stephen of reports.

    The Dodgers are facing a lefty (Max Fried) on Tuesday, and Roberts feels Alberto and his 113 wRC+ career mark versus southpaws will allow the lineup to remain strong while one of Los Angeles' everyday players -- presumably the lefty-hitting Gavin Lux -- gets a day off. Through Los Angeles' first nine games, Alberto has appeared in only three contests while logging five at-bats in total.

  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: Joins Dodgers in Arizona

    Alberto was present in the Dodgers' clubhouse Tuesday, Juan Toribio of reports.

    Alberto had previously been delayed by visa issues, but that problem appears to be resolved. The utility infielder agreed to a deal with Los Angeles last week, but he'll presumably need to pass a physical before the signing is official, per Toribio.

  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: Delayed by visa issues

    Alberto has yet to report for Dodgers' spring training due to visa issues, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Alberto inked a one-year deal with the Dodgers last week, but travel issues have prevented him from joining the team. The 29-year-old hit .270/.291/.402 with two home runs, 25 runs and 24 RBI in 103 games for Kansas City last year and should work as a utility infielder with Los Angeles.

  • Dodgers' Hanser Alberto: Links up with Dodgers

    Alberto agreed Sunday with the Dodgers on a one-year contract, Robert Murray of reports.

    According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Alberto's contract is an MLB deal, so he'll be added to the Dodgers' 40-man roster and therefore should be in good position to make the Opening Day club as a reserve infielder. While receiving 1,036 plate appearances between stops with the Orioles and Royals over the past three seasons, Alberto's high-contact approach has yielded a .292 batting average, but a lack of power and speed along with his presence in relatively weak lineups hasn't made him an especially interesting fantasy commodity. He'll get an upgrade in team context with the move to Los Angeles, but unless the Dodgers' position depth is severely tested in 2022, Alberto may not play enough to warrant intrigue even in NL-only leagues.

  • Hanser Alberto: Hits free agency

    Alberto cleared outright waivers and was released by the Royals on Friday.

    Alberto appeared in 103 games for Kansas City in 2021 and posted a .693 OPS in 255 plate appearances, and the team didn't want to carry him on the 40-man roster further into the offseason. The 29-year-old may need to settle for a minor-league deal this offseason and attempt to make a big-league roster during spring training.

  • Royals' Hanser Alberto: Records third steal

    Alberto went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Saturday's 8-1 win over Seattle.

    The infielder has hit safely in seven of his nine games in September, going 9-for-25 (.360) in that span. Alberto has a solid .269/.291/.396 slash line with two home runs, three steals, 22 RBI and 24 runs scored across 241 plate appearances. He's started three of the four previous games, but he's not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Mariners.

  • Royals' Hanser Alberto: Pops second homer

    Alberto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 3-2 win over the Orioles.

    His fifth-inning blast off Zac Lowther got the Royals on the board. Alberto only has two homers on the year, with the last coming July 2, and he's started only four of the last 13 games -- a playing time squeeze that likely won't get any better for the 28-year-old now that Adalberto Mondesi is seeing action at third base.

  • Royals' Hanser Alberto: Swipes bag in loss

    Alberto went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-3 extra-innings loss to Cleveland.

    Playing time remains scarce for Alberto, and he's done nothing to earn more by going 5-for-23 (.217) across his last 10 games. The veteran infielder has a .259/.274/.376 slash line with one home run, 19 RBI, 22 runs scored and two stolen bases through 216 plate appearances. He figures to drop further on the depth chart given the recent return of Adalberto Mondesi. With Emmanuel Rivera also in the mix at the hot corner while Whit Merrifield and Nicky Lopez control the middle infield, Alberto figures to serve as a bench option for much of September.

  • Royals' Hanser Alberto: Knocks pair of hits

    Alberto went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 9-4 loss to St. Louis.

    The infielder got a start at second base with Whit Merrifield in right field for Saturday's contest. Alberto recorded his second multi-hit effort in his last six games, a span in which he's gone 7-for-16 (.438). The 28-year-old continues to fill a utility role for Kansas City, slashing a reasonable .269/.285/.392 with one home run, 17 RBI, 20 runs scored, a stolen base and 14 doubles through 197 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Hanser Alberto: Knocks in two as pinch hitter

    Alberto went 1-for-1 with a two-RBI triple in Saturday's 9-8 win over Detroit.

    The 28-year-old hasn't seen much playing time lately but produced the final runs for Kansas City during its five-run seventh inning. The infielder has a .274/.290/.420 slash line with one home run, three triples, 13 RBI, 18 runs scored and a stolen base through 164 plate appearances. He'll get the start over Nicky Lopez at shortstop Sunday to allow the latter some rest.

  • Royals' Hanser Alberto: Notches first steal

    Alberto went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Monday's 6-2 loss to Cincinnati.

    The infielder hasn't seen many chances to run, as he's now just 1-for-2 in stolen base attempts. Alberto has started three of five games in July, but it appears Hunter Dozier will see more of the playing time at third base while Emmanuel Rivera (wrist) is out. In a utility role, Alberto has a .267/.285/.397 slash line with one home run, 11 RBI, 15 runs scored, two triples and 12 doubles this season.

  • Royals' Hanser Alberto: Pops first homer

    Alberto went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 7-4 win over the Twins.

    His third-inning blast off J.A. Happ put the Royals in the lead for good. It was Alberto's first long ball of the season, and since the beginning of May, he's slashing .284/.304/.409 -- numbers almost identical to his performance last season with the O's.

  • Royals' Hanser Alberto: On base three times Thursday

    Alberto went 2-for-3 with a double and a hit-by-pitch in Thursday's 8-1 loss to the Yankees.

    Alberto got the start Thursday at third base to spell Kelvin Gutierrez. The multi-hit effort was just the seventh of the year for Alberto. He's slashing .275/.296/.400 with no home runs, nine RBI, 12 runs scored, 11 doubles and two triples through 127 plate appearances. With Adalberto Mondesi (oblique) back on the injured list, there may be more at-bats for Alberto to pick up around the infield, but he remains a part-time player.
