Pete Alonso News
New York Mets All-Star first baseman Pete Alonso has hired agent Scott Boras and the BorasCorp to represent him as he heads into his final season in 2024 before free agency. Boras has a reputation for taking most of his clients into free agency, but the Mets do have a good relationship with Boras and have agreed to three big free-agent deals with Boras clients in recent years in Max Scherzer and Brandon Nimmo. The Mets tried to lock up Alonso to a long-term extension last winter, and they will surely try to do so again this winter. There was some talk of the Brewers or possibly Cubs trading for Alonso in August, but Mets front-office people said nothing was close to actually happening. The 28-year-old is one of the best right-handed sluggers in the game and is going to get paid handsomely either way.
The New York Mets are going to keep contract negotiations with All-Star first baseman Pete Alonso private. "While we understand the media and public interest in player contract situations, we strongly believe in keeping those conversations private. Any circulating reports do not accurately reflect our conversations with Pete," general manager Billy Eppler said in a statement. There have been rumors floating around that Alonso is seeking a 10-year deal from the Mets. The 28-year-old may not get a contract that long, but he's surely going to be paid handsomely eventually. Alonso has hit only .221 (116-for-524) in his fifth year with the Mets in 2023, but he also has 45 home runs, 112 RBI, four steals and 87 runs scored in 143 games. He's now topped 40 home runs and 100 RBI for the third time in five big-league seasons.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso (head/neck) passed concussion protocol on Saturday night and is in Sunday's lineup for the series finale versus the Los Angeles Angels. The 28-year-old was beaned in the neck area by an off-speed pitch in the eighth inning of Saturday's contest, causing the frustrated Alonso's removal after benches cleared. Fantasy managers can breathe a sigh of relief at the sight of Alonso right back in the mix for Sunday's tilt, though his exit did seem somewhat precautionary amid a lost Mets season. The three-time All-Star is hitless in his last 11 at-bats, so Alonso tries to end that dry spell in this one.
Fantasy managers are often prone to overthinking it. They can get bogged down by players projecting for middling batting averages with no steals upside and that can cloud their judgment. This has happened a bit with Alonso over the last few years, as he has not been drafted as a top fantasy asset. That should change in 2023 after the Polar Bear added 40 more homers and 131 more RBI to his impressive young resum . From the moment he put on a Major League uniform, Alonso has been in tier one of the league's power hitters. No hitter in the league has hit more homers (145) or driven in more runs (380) since the 2019 season, there is simply no questioning him in those categories. Add to that the fact that he's posted a more than respectable .261 career batting average and we're looking at a guy that should probably be drafted as a top-15 hitter, but he still often slides out of that range. His strikeout rate been under 20% for two straight seasons now, a great sign for him continuing that useful batting average. The only true knock on him is the lack of steals, but everything else more than outweighs that. Get your steals somewhere else, and lock in those 35+ homers and 110+ RBI by drafting Alonso as your first baseman.
