San Diego, CA- The San Diego Padres 1st baseman Yonder Alonso season is now over, as according to Corey Brock of Padres.com recent tests have revealed that Alonso has a torn tendon in his right forearm.
The Padres had just recently placed Alonso on the 15-day DL with a strained right forearm and recalled INF Jace Peterson from Triple-A El Paso.
Yonder Alonso left last Tuesday’s game in the top of the fourth inning with a right forearm strain.

Yonder Alonso just returned from the disabled list last month, after missing 30 games with right wrist soreness.
With Alonso on the DL, expect the hot hitting Tommy Medica to assume a majority of the playing time at first base.
Friars on Base
Alonso’s despite struggling this season for the Padres, batting only .24o with 7 home runs and 27 RBI’s, he has been hitting well since coming off the DL. Alonso is batting .421 (16-for-38) with two home runs and 5 RBI’s since returning.
This injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for Yonder Alonso.
A.J Preller and Padres will use the final two months of the season to figure out who fits in their plans for 2015 and let’s be honest both the fans and the Padres themselves don’t view Yonder Alonso as the “1st baseman of the future”.
Yonder Alonso has struggled all season and with a new GM in charge Alonso needed to play well the rest of the season to prove to Preller that he should remain the team’s starting first baseman going forward.
