RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Through the first two and a half months of last season, Alonso avoided the injury bug that has plagued his career, but a sore right wrist emerged in mid-June and induced yet another trip to the disabled list. The Padres’ wretched offense was in full swing by that point, and their starting first baseman was a prime culprit, mustering a .210/.250/.341 batting line, with a low .131 ISO and .222 BABIP in tow. Upon his return to the lineup in the latter portion of July, he managed to hit the cover off the ball for nearly three weeks, before a right forearm strain ended his campaign for good. The aforementioned surge at the plate boosted his final line to a more respectable .240/.285/.397. If the power demonstrated last year (seven homers and 19 doubles in 267 at-bats) continues unabated, Alonso may finally tap into the potential that has been evident, when healthy, during parts of five professional seasons.

2014

Alonso, who entered the season as the Padres' unquestioned starting first baseman, didn't disappoint during the first two months, belting three homers each in April and May, before landing on the disabled list due to a broken hand. Upon his return just before the All-Star break, he failed to clear the fences thereafter, while tallying just four extra-base hits (all doubles) and receiving no at-bats after Aug. 30 due to sore hands. However, he displayed greater plate discipline in the second half -- a 17:15 K:BB ratio in 135 at-bats versus 15:32 in 199 at-bats in the first -- a telling sign that his ailments were taking a toll on his power stroke. The left-handed hitter, when healthy, clearly took advantage of Petco Park's more friendly right-field fence, which was moved in prior to 2013's opening pitch, as evidenced by four long balls at home. As a result, Alonso enters his age-27 season poised to surpass the career-high nine home runs he achieved in 2012, so long as he avoids the injury bug.

2013

In his first full season in the majors, Alonso got off to a slow start (.263/.344/.362, three homers), but finished strong after the All-Star break (.285/.352/.430, six homers). As a lefty, he unsurprisingly hit righties much better than he hit lefties with eight of his nine home runs coming against them. In sum, it was a promising rookie year for the young first baseman. In 2013, Alonso will need to show more power, if he is to be taken seriously as a corner bat and because his home park demands it. He'll be close to 26 years old when the season starts, so it's natural to expect his power to continue to develop. If he can keep his strikeout rate low, there's good reason to believe that Alonso will avoid a sophomore slump, and he should benefit from having the right-field fences moved in at Petco Park.

2012

At the plate, Alonso hit a robust .330/.398/.545 in 88 at-bats, fueled by a .387 BABIP. Alonso hasn't yet hit for the power many had hoped for from the 2008 first-round pick, but many believe that still could be coming. The Reds included him in a package sent to the Padres for Mat Latos in December, which finally removed Joey Votto as a roadblock to playing time at first base. Now that "lack of position" is no longer a part of his scouting report, Alonso is a nice sleeper after delivering a .943 OPS in limited duty as a 24-year-old for the Reds last season. The Padres traded Anthony Rizzo to the Cubs in January, so Alonso appears to be the favorite to start at first base come Opening Day.

2011

Alonso started slowly in 2010 while trying to recover from the broken hamate bone that slowed his 2009 season down. A strong second half left him with decent overall numbers, though not the monster power numbers the Reds were hoping for when they drafted him. The bigger problem for the Reds is that an attempt to move him to left field at Triple-A Louisville fizzled out, leaving him without a position at the major league level, with Joey Votto obviously not going anywhere. There's a good chance that his bat will eventually catch up to expectations, but the odds are it will be with another organization after Alonso gets dealt. Because of the position issue, Alonso will probably spend half the summer in Louisville again.

2010

Alonso is going to present a dilemma to the Reds in the future, because he can only handle first base (and marginally at that) defensively, and Joey Votto is firmly ensconced there. But that's not going to be an issue in 2010 - Alonso's bat, particularly his ability to hit for power, still needs work. A broken hamate bone suffered midseason while playing for Double-A Carolina slowed down his progress and cut back on Alonso's power once he returned. He hit well in the Arizona Fall League, but once again not for power. Look for him to spend most of 2010 at Triple-A Louisville.

2009

Alonso was the Reds' first-round pick out of the University of Miami and signed right at the deadline after a somewhat rancorous negotiation. He tore it up in the Hawaii Winter League (.308/.419/.510) and could begin 2009 as high as Double-A Carolina. Alonso's good power and plate discipline made it hard for the Reds to pass him up in the draft, despite their needs at other positions. Defensively, he can only really handle first base, meaning that by 2010 the Reds will have to figure out how to get both him and Joey Votto in the lineup.
