School: Florida Year: Junior Position: 1B Age: 21 DOB: 12/7/1994 Bats: R Throws: R Height: 6'2" Weight: 225 lb.
Previously Drafted: Never
VIDEO
Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 30 | Arm: 50 | Field: 45 | Overall: 45
As a high school third baseman at Plant High School in Tampa, Alonso went undrafted. After three years at the University of Florida, that won't happen again, as he was swinging a hot bat at the right time as the Draft approached.

Alonso was making consistent, hard contact for the Gators as his junior season progressed. He's always had raw power, but didn't always look like he could tap into it consistently. Lately, however, he's shortened his swing and begun to use the whole field more effectively, showing extra-base pop to the opposite field. Much of his success stems from a more open stance which has helped him get his hips through more consistently. He's a first baseman only with well below-average speed, though his hands and footwork at the corner infield position should be adequate.

As a right-right first baseman, the bat is really going to have to play. Offensive college performers tend to do well in the Draft, and Alonso's raw natural power was giving him some helium as the spring progressed.

Injuries have dogged Alonso the last two seasons--he missed 30 games in 2015 with a broken foot and later broke his nose, and in May 2016 he missed time with a broken left hand. He nevertheless has been the Gators' most consistent power bat in that span and was leading the '16 Gators in batting and homers when he got hurt. Alonso didn't show much power in the Cape Cod League last summer with Bourne after hitting 18 the previous summer during an MVP turn in the Northwoods League. Alonso has plus raw power, hitting the first-ever home run to center field at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha during the 2015 College World Series. At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Alonso does it with strength rather than bat speed and is a poor runner who likely will be limited to first base, but his righthanded power is his carrying tool.

The centerpiece of the most talented college lineup in the country, Alonso has easy plus bat speed and plus raw power that plays to all fields. His swing has improved during his time at Florida but still features some extraneous movement during his load, and some think it will lead to some swinging and missing. Given that Alonso is a first base-only prospect, and a right-handed hitting one at that, little mechanical inefficiencies play a much larger role in determining his future than they would for a prospect at a more valuable defensive position.

Alonso has been striking out more frequently later in the college year. Some scouts think that's a result of Alonso facing SEC pitching, and others are concerned that opposing pitchers have found a hole in his swing to exploit. If/when Alonso reaches a level of the minors where he begins to scuffle because of either the quality of pitching or because opponents have learned how to get him out, whether or not he can make adjustments likely will dictate his future.

Hello Brooklyn, we have a first baseman for you.

Big power, first base only.

Meh.

He is basically Will Craig at #64. Not thrilled but better here than at #19.

I think we're probably close to a million under slot after these three picks.
