Pete Alonso News
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso, after a brief hot spell, is now just 1-for-15 over his past five games. Alonso went 0-for-2 with two walks in the Mets' 4-2 victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday. He is hitting just .238 with no home runs and one RBI over his past seven games (21 at-bats), though he has posted a very solid .467 on-base percentage. Despite the current struggles, Alonso is one of the game's top power hitters who should remain active in all fantasy formats. Overall in 2021, Alonso has posted a .255/.264/.461 slash line, with five HR and 17 RBI.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, and two runs scored in the Mets' 6-5 loss to the Cardinals on Monday. Alonso, much like teammate Michael Conforto, is finally heating up at the plate. Over his last seven games, Alonso is slashing .333/.400/.593 in 27 at-bats with one home run and five RBI. He has raised his batting average to .282 on the season during this current streak. Alonso is one of the game's top power hitters who should remain active in all fantasy formats, especially with his bat getting hot. Stating the obvious, Alonso should provide fantasy managers with elite power counting stats hitting in the middle of a Mets lineup that appears to finally be trending in the right direction.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso went 1-for-5 with a three-run double in the Mets' 8-7 win over the Phillies on Sunday evening. Alonso's lone hit, his fourth double of the season, broke the game open in the eighth inning until Edwin Diaz made things interesting in the ninth inning. Alonso is off to a somewhat slow start on the 2021 campaign, after a red hot spring training. He has posted a .259/.330/.494 slash line, with five home runs, and 16 RBI through the first 22 games of the season. Alonso is one of the game's top power hitters and, despite a slow beginning to the 2021 campaign, he should remain active in all fantasy formats. As he showed on Sunday, Alonso is capable of filling up the box score on any given day with one swing of the bat.
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.
