San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso said he is evolving as a hitter as some of his line drives are turning into home runs lately. He hit two homers on the team's latest road trip and has three in his last nine games. "I think it was just a matter of time … and I was saying that in April," Alonso said. "It was just a matter of time before things got better. I kept hitting balls right at people. I just had to stay with it and trust what I was doing."

San Diego Padres manager Bud Black said Wednesday, April 16, that the weakest backup position is third base, where INF Alexi Amarista started in place of the injured 3B Chase Headley (biceps). INF Ryan Jackson (wrist) is unavailable at Triple-A El Paso, so the team might look to 1B-OF Yonder Alonso or C Yasmani Grandal to play some third base if Headley is forced out for an extended period.

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso said his hand injury last year taught him to become a much smarter hitter. "I think I became a smarter hitter during my injury. I had to really focus on my plan and my approach. I became a better hitter with my hand and my eyes," he said. "Now, I'm going to drive the ball into the gaps, make the pitcher work and see a lot of pitches. If I do that, I'm doing my job."
