Yonder Alonso goes back on the disabled list

2 Comments

Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso is headed back to the disabled list, this time with a strained right forearm.

Alonso previously missed about six weeks in June and July with right wrist tendinitis and he’d been on fire since returning, hitting .421 in 15 games. Unfortunately that hot stretch brought his season totals up to a still-poor .240 batting average and .682 OPS in 84 games.

Tommy Medica shifted from left field to first base when Alonso exited Tuesday’s game.
