2022 Player Outlook
Alonso had yet another strong season for fantasy managers, hitting .262 with 81 runs, 37 home runs, 94 RBI and an OPS of .863. The power ceiling with Alonso is as high as anyone in baseball and his OPS is right up there as well. We should be encouraged by his bounce back in the batting average department last season as well. Strikeouts and walks will always be a big part of his game as well, but it was great to see him boast a career low 19.9% strikeout rate last season and if he can maintain that type of plate discipline then he will have a very high fantasy ceiling. Alonso is currently coming off the board among the Top 10 first basemen and can be found somewhere in round 4-to-5 depending on league format.
