Alonso went 3-for-5 with two homers, a double and three RBI in Sunday's 15-5 loss to Washington.
Alonso got the scoring starting with a two-run blast in the first inning before knocking a solo shot in the seventh when the game was already far out of reach. While he finished the season with a .231/.326/.490 slash line, the 25-year-old slugger was just starting to heat up; he ended the season on a six-game hitting streak with 10 hits and four homers during that span. Alonso finished the 2020 campaign with 16 long balls and 35 RBI.
Alonso went 2-for-2 with a walk and a two-run home run during a 5-3 loss to the Nationals in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.
He got the Mets on the board in the fourth inning by taking Anibal Sanchez deep, but New York was already in a 5-0 hole. Alonso's .222/.321/.453 slash line is a big step back from his performance as a rookie, but the 25-year-old has maintained his power stroke with 14 homers and 32 RBI through 56 games.
Alonso went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk and three RBI in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Rays.
Alonso's big night at the dish helped the Mets keep their faint playoff hopes alive for another day, but any late flurry to finish the season won't be enough for him to repay fantasy managers who invested in him on draft day. A .220 BABIP and overall downturn in power production has limited Alonso to a .741 OPS this season, 200 points below his mark from his brilliant rookie campaign.
Alonso is not in the lineup Friday against Atlanta.
There haven't been reports that Alonso is battling an injury, so it's unusual to see him sit against lefty Max Fried, with the left-handed Dominic Smith starting ahead of him at first bench. Still, it's possible Alonso has been benched on merit, as his .755 OPS is considerably worse than Smith's 1.034 mark as well as designated hitter J.D. Davis's .802 mark.
Alonso went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Phillies.
Alonso initiated a Mets comeback with a solo shot to left field in the sixth inning. While his .215 average and .754 OPS are considerable dropoffs from his 2019 Rookie of the Year campaign, Alonso does rank in the top 10 among National League hitters with 12 long balls on the season.
Alonso is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.
Alonso finds himself on the bench for the fourth time this season. That's not a high number by any means, though it's higher than one would have expected giving his fantastic .260/.358/.583 slash line as a rookie. He hasn't come close to matching that this year, however, hitting .216/.318/.433. Dominic Smith will be the first baseman Wednesday, with J.D. Davis serving as the designated hitter.
Alonso went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored as he helped the Mets to a 7-6 win over the Orioles on Wednesday.
Alonso played the hero in Wednesday's game as he took Hunter Harvey deep on the first pitch he saw in the eighth to give the Mets their first lead of the game. The 25-year-old is still hitting a mere .234/.339/.474 this season but is tied for fifth in the majors with 11 home runs.
Alonso will serve as the Mets' designated hitter and will bat sixth Monday against the Phillies.
Alonso has now made six of his last 10 starts as a designated hitter, as the Mets have instead preferred to deploy Dominic Smith at first base of late while using Jeff McNeil in left field and Robinson Cano at the keystone. The recent shuffling of defensive roles shouldn't affect Alonso's fantasy outlook heading into 2021, as he'll still retain first-base eligibility after having already made 30 starts at the position this season.
Alonso went 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double, three RBI and two strikeouts in Sunday's win against the Phillies.
Alonso wasn't in the Mets' lineup Saturday, but the day off apparently served him well as he swatted three extra-base hits against the Phillies. The 25-year-old has largely struggled to begin the season, but he's now hit four home runs over his past four contests.
Alonso is not in the lineup Saturday against the Phillies.
Alonso has been surprisingly unimpressive at the plate this season, hitting just .210/.321/.406. That hasn't translated into a significant drop in playing time, as he finds himself on the bench for just the third time all year Saturday. Dominic Smith will be the first baseman in his absence.
Alonso went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run Thursday against the Yankees.
Alonso had a game to forget until the 10th inning, when he came to the plate in a tie game. He smacked his eighth homer of the season over the left-field wall to give the Mets a walkoff victory. Alonso has now homered in consecutive games, though he has collected just five hits in his last 41 at-bats. While his overall performance at the plate has been disappointing, Alonso has still managed 19 runs scored and 22 RBI while hitting just .209/.323/.410 across 158 plate appearances.
Alonso went 1-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's win over the Orioles.
He crushed a sixth-inning pitch from John Means and deposited it into the second deck in left field at Camden Yards, chasing the southpaw from the game in the process. Alonso has had a tough season and can't seem to build any momentum at the plate, but despite a .722 OPS he's still supplied solid power numbers with seven homers and 20 RBI through 36 games.
Alonso went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and two strikeouts in Friday's Game 1 win against the Yankees.
Alonso had gone hitless with two strikeouts over his past nine at-bats, but he gave the Mets a boost with a three-run blast in the sixth inning. He now has a .779 OPS with six home runs and 16 RBI this year.
Alonso went 3-for-3 with two walks and two solo home runs in Monday's 11-4 win over the Marlins.
He went back-to-back with Robinson Cano in the sixth inning, as each player launched two homers on the night. Alonso had a rough start to the year but he now has three long balls and three multi-hit efforts in his last five starts, pushing his slash line up to .241/.359/.448 through 23 games.
Alonso is not in Sunday's lineup against the Phillies.
He is hitting .263 with a home run, six strikeouts and one walk over his last five games. Dominic Smith will start at first base while Robinson Cano shifts to designated hitter.
Alonso went 3-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 11-6 win over the Nationals.
The Mets gave Alonso a day off Tuesday and it looked smart a day later as Alonso erupted for eight total bases. Alonso entered the day out of the lineup amidst a 7-for-41 (.171) slide. His numbers are still below expectations, but he's a lot closer after this performance.
Alonso is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
This appears to be nothing more than a routing off day for the young slugger. He may need a day to sort things out after hitting just .200/.333/.308 through his first 17 games. Dominic Smith will handle first base in his absence.
Alonso went 1-for-3 with a walk, a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Marlins.
Alonso saw an 89-mph fastball gift-wrapped over the heart of the plate (from a lefty in Daniel Castano) and hammered it 116.9 mph off the bat, the second-highest exit velocity on a batted ball in MLB this season. It was only his second homer and Alonso is still batting just .211, but Alonso can do damage with the best of them when he does put bat to ball.
Alonso went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Monday's 7-4 win over the Red Sox.
Alonso went deep off of Red Sox reliever Jeffrey Springs in the third inning. It was a much-needed long ball for the reigning NL Rookie of the Year, who had just one hit in 11 at-bats over the first three games of the season. Alonso set a rookie record and led the majors with 53 homers in 2019, so it's unlikely his bat will stay cool for long.
Alonso and the Mets agreed to a one-year contract worth over $652,000 on Wednesday, an MLB record for a player heading into his second season, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Players have no bargaining power before they reach their arbitration years, so the club giving Alonso anything more than the league minimum of $563,500 was essentially a show of gratitude for his exploits as a rookie. The 25-year-old hasn't found his timing at the plate yet this spring -- he's hitting only .243 (9-for-37) without a homer -- but Alonso still has a couple weeks to round into form before Opening Day.
