2019 Fantasy Outlook
Alonso's 2018 season was a step back from his surprise 2017 season. By now, you know that Alonso converted himself from a slow-footed heavy groundball hitter into a flyball hitter during the 2017 offseason. He stuck with that trend in 2018, but not to the extreme that led to the power breakout. His average exit velocity fell 1.5 miles per hour, the average distance on his batted balls fell 16 feet and his average launch angle dropped from 19.4 degrees to 15.6 degrees. Those numbers are what we should have expected as the league fully adjusted to his changes at the plate, and they're sustainable moving forward. The numbers are much better than where he was two seasons ago, but they're not that great for a first baseman. His 2017 may have been a one-time thing, but the new baseline makes Alonso at least rosterable now in all formats rather than the last-resort option he was not so long ago. Read Past Outlooks
