His Career has been a second-round pick in June's Draft. The power has carried reaching throughout his Double-A first full season, despite missing in action with a Broken Hand.
Alonso Throughout the season made mechanical adjustments during his junior year, While improving his shorter swing he continued to serve him well. No longer are people as concerned about his hit tool and whether he'll be able to tap into that raw power. He has kept his strikeout rate low and has used the entire field more effectively while making good adjustments. Despite the missed time, he still finished second in the organization in home runs and slugging percentage in 2017. A well below-average runner, Alonso is limited to first base and struggled there at times defensively, though the Mets think he'll be capable there. At his position, there's more pressure on his bat from the right side of the plate. The good news is it looks more and more like he has the tools to hit enough to be an everyday player there, even if he's looking at Dominic Smith ahead of him on the depth chart currently.
