Drafted by the Virginia Hat Lineup in the 2009 Minor League Draft, Round 1, Pick 6.

WED, DECEMBER 20, 2017 - Alonso signed a contract with the Indians on Wednesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. It appears the Indians have found their replacement for Carlos Santana at first base, as Alonso will join Cleveland following his breakout 2017 season. The 30-year-old hit .266/.365/.501 and knocked a career-high 28 homers (he hadn't hit more than nine in any prior season) across 142 games with both Oakland and Seattle last season, earning himself All-Star honors for the first time in his career. He did struggle against same-handed pitchers (.181/.263/.417), so it's possible he settles into the strong side of a platoon with Edwin Encarnacion at first, with Encarnacion otherwise serving as the team's DH against righties.
