Pete Alonso News
The New York Mets and first baseman Pete Alonso agreed to a one-year, $14.5 million deal on Friday to avoid salary arbitration. Alonso made his second All-Star team in 2022 and finished the regular season with 40 long balls, a league-high 131 RBI, 95 runs scored, five stolen bases, a .271/.352/.518 slash line and an .869 OPS in 685 plate appearances and 160 games. The former National League Rookie of the Year in 2019 is one of the best power hitters in baseball and resides in one of the better lineups in baseball, which makes him a top-25 fantasy target, regardless of position, early in drafts. Alonso has mashed 146 home runs and driven in 380 runs in his first four major-league seasons.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso provided much of the offense for the team Tuesday, hitting a three-run home run in a 6-4 loss to the Miami Marlins. This brings the reigning National League Player of the Week's total for the year to 40 home runs. He also has a major-league leading 131 RBI. Alonso has had an excellent season at the plate, producing an .872 OPS, scoring 91 runs, and adding five swiped bags in 661 plate appearances. He won't approach his 53 homer total that he produced in his rookie 2019, but Alonso has proven that he's one of the most formidable power hitters in the league.
New York Mets first baseman Pete Alonso went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and two strikeouts in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Brewers. Alonso crushed a seventh-inning Brad Boxberger offspeed pitch to straightaway center field for his 37th HR of the season. The Polar Bear has brought the power once again this season, slashing .267/.346/.511 with 121 RBI and five stolen bases. He should continue to be one of fantasy baseball's better sources of HR, R, and RBI for the rest of the season.
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.
