San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso went 3-for-4 with two RBIs Tuesday, April 16, for his first three-hit game of the year. He's in the midst of an eight-game hitting streak (13-for-31) to raise his average from .191 to .327. He has three doubles, a home run and seven RBIs during the stretch.
Fantasy Tip: You shouldn't ignore players on hot streaks such as this, and Alonso is available in a decent amount of mixed leagues. Take a peek if you need some help at corner infield.

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso made changes to his stance this offseason with the help of hitting coach Phil Plantier, balancing his body and putting more of his legs and torso into his swing, which he hopes will add more power. "To me, the changes are dramatic," Alonso said. "When Plantier and I started working, I opened myself up to any ideas. I want to add some power to my swing. What he did was make me more balanced at the plate so I could move quicker to the ball. We changed my swing a lot and worked on my lower body." Knee surgery affected Alonso's lower half before the start of last season.
