As expected, the Padres have activated Yonder Alonso from the disabled list following a four-week absence due to a bone bruise in his right shoulder.

Alonso is starting at first base and batting fifth for the Friars on Tuesday night against the visiting Mets.

It will be his first major league game since May 7.

The 28-year-old was off to a very promising start before the injury, slashing .333/.427/.437 with one home run, 10 RBI, and 11 runs scored in 26 games. Yangervis Solarte served as San Diego’s primary first baseman while Alonso was on the shelf. Solarte is out of the starting lineup Tuesday.
