Pete Alonso News
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso hit another two-run shot Sunday, coming through against Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Ryan Borucki in the sixth inning of a 5-4 victory. It was his only hit in four at-bats. Alonso is clearly suffering no hangover from the home run derby, as he's gone crazy with five home runs since the break. He's slashing .375/.412/.844 in his last seven games, and now is every bit the power threat his reputation makes him out to be after a down first half. Fantasy managers can ride the wave to the playoffs going forward.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso provided all the offense Friday, homering twice and driving in three runs in four at-bats against the Toronto Blue Jays. The two home runs, his 20th and 21st of the season, came off of starter Steven Matz and reliever Ryan Borucki. Alonso has been excellent over his last 30 games, slashing .288/.347/.622 with 11 homers and 22 RBI in that span. He now has an .849 OPS with 45 runs and 56 RBI on the season, delivering on the promise that led him to be a top draft choice for fantasy managers this spring.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso went 2-for-5 with a solo home run on Tuesday in the Mets 4-3 loss to the Reds in Cincinnati. Alonso has now hit safely in all five games since the All-Star break and has homered in two straight games. He is now 8-for-22 (.364) with two home runs, four RBI, three walks, and four runs scored over the five-game span. Overall, Alonso is hitting .259/.336/.493 with 19 HR, 12 doubles, 42 runs scored, and 53 RBI in 82 games. Alonso has a tendency to hit homers in bunches, so he should certainly be active in all fantasy formats for the Mets contest on Wednesday against the Reds in hitter-friendly Great American Ball Park.
After a 2019 breakout rookie season, Pete Alonso clubbed 16 home runs, and 35 RBI but posted just a .231/.326/.490 line over 239 plate appearances in 2020. Extrapolated over the course of a full 162-game season, his power totals equaled an impressive 46 HR and 101 RBI. Despite his power, Alonso's low batting average and on-base percentage, the result of a slow start to a short season and poor chase contact numbers, adversely impacted his fantasy value. Alonso's advanced metrics reveal that he did finish with an overall launch angle, overall exit velocity, strikeout rate, hard-hit rate, and walk rate which were all close to his 2019 totals. This suggests Alonso rectified early-season timing issues. That said, an inability to consistently put balls outside the zone into play exacerbated his slow start by keeping his batting average and OBP down. Alonso's chase contact percentage was only 47.8%. This was well below his 2019 58.3% chase contact percentage and the MLB league average of 59.4%. If Alonso can positively regress toward the chase contact MLB average, we should see positive regression in batting average and OBP. With (hopefully) a full spring training and season to work with for 2021, a line of around .250/.340/.540, between his breakout 2019 and mediocre 2020, is a very reasonable and tempered expectation. Additionally, Alonso is a safe bet to again provide managers with 45-to-50 HR and over 100 RBI, particularly with the Mets bolstering their lineup with the addition of All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and catcher James McCann. With a current ADP of 60.24, Alonso is appropriately being drafted as the fifth or sixth first baseman off of boards.
