Fantasy Tip: Tommy Medica and Jacob Goebbert are expected to split playing time at first base for the rest of the year and are worth considering for NL-only league. Alonso can be released in all formats.

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (forearm) was placed on the disabled list Thursday, Aug. 14, with a strained right forearm. In a corresponding move, INF Jace Peterson was recalled from Triple-A El Paso.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson is worth a flier in NL-only formats, but don't expect everyday at-bats. Alonso can be dropped in the majority of mixed formats.

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (wrist, forearm) suffered a right wrist/forearm injury Tuesday, Aug. 12, according to manager Bud Black. Alonso is expected to have to go back on the disabled list. He returned from the DL July 26 from a similar ailment and was hitting .421 (16-for-38) since returning. Alonso will have an MRI exam Wednesday, Aug. 13, after an MRI Tuesday showed a right forearm strain. He said he felt something "pop" while batting Tuesday. C Yasmani Grandal was starting at first base Wednesday, and Black said INFs Tommy Medica and Jacob Goebbert could also see time there.
Fantasy Tip: You can cut Alonso in most mixed leagues at this point. His wrist/forearm issue seems like it could be pretty serious, so his performance might be affected if he's able to return before the end of the season. Grandal probably benefits the most, with regular playing time at either catcher or first base throughout the end of the regular season.
