Royals' Hanser Alberto: Two doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI in Tuesday's 8-1 loss to the Angels.

Alberto hasn't seen a lot of playing time lately, but he's been fairly productive when in the lineup. He's gone 7-for-15 (.467) with four doubles, one RBI and four runs scored across his last five games. For the season, the infielder is slashing .276/.280/.408 with eight RBI, 11 runs scored, nine doubles and two triples across 102 plate appearances. With Adalberto Mondesi (hamstring) out, Alberto could see the short side of a platoon with Nicky Lopez at shortstop.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Brewers.

Starts have become less frequent for the 28-year-old, who has continued to post underwhelming offensive numbers. Kelvin Gutierrez, who has gone 4-for-12 with just one strikeout since being called up May 14, gets the start at third base Wednesday.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Sitting for afternoon game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto will remain on the bench for the afternoon portion of Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

Alberto will sit for the third straight game. Hunter Dozier remains the starter at third base, though Alberto could return to the lineup for the nightcap.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Sitting in second straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers.

After a string of four straight starts, Alberto will now be on the bench for the second day in a row. Ryan O'Hearn will enter the lineup in Alberto's stead, serving as Kansas City's designated hitter while Hunter Dozier shifts back to third base.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Tigers, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Alberto had started each of the last four games and went 3-for-14 with a double, a run and two strikeouts during that time. Hunter Dozier will shift to third base while Jorge Soler plays right field and Ryan O'Hearn serves as the designated hitter.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Getting more playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto will start at third base and bat eighth Sunday against the White Sox.

In the lineup against a right-handed pitcher (Lucas Giolito) and starting for the third consecutive day, Alberto appears to have temporarily captured an everyday role on the left side of the Kansas City infield. The 28-year-old has supplied a meager .213/.226/.344 in 63 plate appearances on the season, so he'll likely need to pick up the pace at the plate to ensure he continues receiving ample work.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: On bench again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto is out of the lineup Friday against the Tigers, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Alberto finds himself on the bench for the second straight contest against a right-hander with Casey Mize starting for Detroit. Hunter Dozier takes over at third base with Jorge Soler working in right field and Ryan O'Hearn serving as the designated hitter for Kansas City.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Sits with righty on mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

Thanks to the Royals facing a string of left-handed starting pitchers, Alberto had been included in the lineup in each of the last six games. He'll head back to the bench Wednesday with right-hander Michael Wacha on the bump for Tampa Bay, but Alberto at least appears to have locked down a short-side platoon role with Kansas City.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Scores twice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 7-5 win over the Blue Jays.

Alberto got on base with an infield single and scored on a Nicky Lopez triple in the third inning. In the sixth, Alberto plated Hunter Dozier with an RBI double before scoring on a Cavan Biggio error. Through 21 plate appearances this season, Alberto is slashing .286/.286/.476 with no homers, three RBI, three runs scored and four doubles. He's also 0-for-1 in stolen base attempts. The 28-year-old has been a utility infielder so far in his first season with the Royals.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Cleveland.

Alberto had started each of the Royals' last three games at third base, but he'll head to the bench Wednesday with Hunter Dozier (thumb) cleared to return to the starting five. Unless Nicky Lopez dramatically cools down at the plate while handling an everyday role at shortstop, Alberto looks like he'll be limited to a utility role even with Adalberto Mondesi (oblique) on the shelf.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Three-hit effort Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored in Saturday's 11-4 win over the Rangers.

Alberto contributed an RBI double in the fifth inning to plate Kyle Isbel, then came around to score on a fielder's choice by Whit Merrifield. In the sixth, Alberto got aboard with a single and scored on Carlos Santana's double. The 28-year-old Alberto posted a slash line of .283/.306/.393 with three homers, 35 runs scored, 22 RBI and three stolen bases in 54 games with the Orioles last season. He may see a more limited role in 2021, as Hunter Dozier (thumb) and Whit Merrifield are likely to occupy starting roles at third base and second base -- Alberto's two most familiar positions.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Earns roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto's contract was purchased by the Royals on Monday.

Alberto was a non-roster invite to spring training, and he was able to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster by hitting .355 with two RBI in 31 at-bats. The 28-year-old will serve in a utility role for Kansas City to begin the 2021 campaign.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Contending for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto could begin the season as the starter at third base, MLB.com reports.

Alberto will likely have a utility role, but it's possible Whit Merrifield starts at second base, Hunter Dozier moves to right field and Alberto starts at third base. Alberto is hitting .407 (11-for-27) this spring.

Royals' Hanser Alberto: Inks minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Sunday as a non-roster invitee, Hector Gomez of Deportivo Z 101 reports.

Alberto was non-tendered by Baltimore in November, but he'll compete for a major-league roster spot with the Royals in 2021. The 28-year-old played in 54 games during the abbreviated 2020 season, slashing .283/.306/.393 with three home runs and 22 RBI.

Hanser Alberto: Non-tendered by O's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto was non-tendered by the Orioles on Wednesday.

The two sides are apparently still open to negotiating a contract for 2021, but Baltimore will not be paying Alberto what he would have made in arbitration. He played primarily second base last season and hit .283/.306/.393 with three home runs and two steals in 54 games.

Orioles' Hanser Alberto: Swats third long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Rays in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader.

Alberto got the Orioles on the board in the second part of the twin bill with a solo blast off Trevor Richards in the second inning. It was his third homer of the season and his first since July. The 27-year-old leads Baltimore with 54 hits and a .287 batting average.

Orioles' Hanser Alberto: Day off Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto is not in the lineup Monday against Atlanta, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Alberto hits the bench after starting eight straight games at second base. He hit just .194/.194/.194 over that stretch. Andrew Velazquez takes over at the keystone in his absence.

Orioles' Hanser Alberto: Not in Game 2 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto isn't in the lineup for the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Alberto returned from a knee injury during Friday's matinee, but he won't start back-to-back games against the Yankees. Pat Valaika will serve as the second baseman.

September 5, 2020 03:52 PM
Orioles' Hanser Alberto: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alberto (knee) will return to the lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees, batting sixth and playing second base, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

Alberto hasn't played since Monday after jamming his knee while sliding into a base, but the issue evidently wasn't a particularly serious one. Whether or not he'll be asked to start twice in one day immediately upon his return remains to be seen.
