Pete Alonso News
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso had a three-hit game against the Atlanta Braves Friday, adding a double, a run scored, and an RBI. He's slashed .284/.359/.595 with eight homers over his last 30 games. Alonso appears set to fall just short of the 40-homer plateau, as he currently has 37 to go with an .862 OPS, 81 runs, and 93 RBI. He'll be a reliable fantasy slugger for years to come.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso helped lead the team to a 12-3 victory over the Miami Marlins on Thursday. He went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in the game. He now has 37 home runs and 92 RBI over 149 games this year. The 26-year-old slugger has been one of the league's top power hitters for the third consecutive year in 2021. His .526 xSLG ranks in the 92nd percentile while his 118.4 mph max exit velocity ranks in the 99th percentile. Few players are as reliable from a power perspective as the Mets star. He should be a high draft pick come fantasy draft season once again next spring.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in the Mets 6-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday. Alonso has struggled at the plate recently, batting just .240 over his past seven games. That said, he has now homered twice over his last five games, suggesting his bat may have one last hot streak in it before the 2021 campaign concludes. On the season, Alonso has slashed .261/.342/.514 with 34 home runs, 88 RBI, 24 doubles, and 75 runs scored over 141 games. While Alonso won't reach the 50 HR plateau he reached in his rookie season, it still has been a productive season for the 26-year old slugger. Alonso should remain active in all formats for the Mets final 11 games of the season.
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.
