I don't think Peter Alonso is a "problem" anymore with the 2016 draft.

If he qualified he would be 4th in slugging and 7th in OPS in the FSL

with 12 homers in 50 games he would be on a 30+ homer pace over a full season (he is 5th in home runs in the league despite having significantly LESS at bats than anyone in the top 10.)

I think any hit he took in his prospect status in the early season when he struggled has rebounded fully.

I can see people talking up the possibility of an Alonso/Dom platoon at first by mid season next year

Dunn on the other hand ... has been a problem and disappointment so far ..


An Alonso/Dom platoon would be weird. 2 guys who can mostly just play first is too limited for a 25 man roster. Besides, Dom can platoon with Wilmer or TJ just fine next year, unless you want both of those guys starting - which would be odd.

No reason to rush Alonso. There are questions about his swing and whether it'll work in the majors. He's got the strength, but he might not have the bat speed and the glove might be below average too.


I agree with what you are saying (I was saying "i could see people saying that ..." not that I would agree with it)

My main point is that Alonso's performance has met any reasonable expectations and his prospect status should be the same or better based on his season so far.

Alonso makes me feel a lot more comfortable letting Duda walk. If Dom can't make the transition, Alonso isn't too far behind. Worst case scenario Alonso is a great trade chip.
