Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 60 | Run: 30 | Arm: 50 | Field: 40 | Overall: 55

When the Mets took Alonso, a three-year starter at the University of Florida, in the second round of the 2016 Draft, they hoped the power spike he showed in his junior season with the Gators would translate to the pro game. They were pleased when he hit 18 homers in 93 games in his first full season, interrupted by a broken hand. They were ecstatic when he tied for the Minor League lead with 36 homers and led it outright with 119 RBIs in 2018, all while reaching Triple-A.

Shortening up his swing as a junior helped carry Alonso up the organizational ladder in a hurry, and with a lot of noise. He has ridiculous raw power from the right side, and it clearly shows up in games, including on big stages like his 113.6-mph homer in the 2018 Futures Game or his homer off a 103-mph fastball in the Arizona Fall League Fall Stars Game. While his strikeout rate went up with the move to Triple-A, he makes enough contact to tap into his power consistently and draws a lot of walks as well.

The only real negative for Alonso has been his defense, something he has worked tirelessly on to improve. He's never going to wow anyone with his glove, and he's limited to first because of his well-below-average speed, but he should be adequate enough to play there, with more than enough bat to profile at the position in the very near future.
