Thanks Alex, Pete went for $17.

Good luck today Syd!

In the next update, Mike and I will have to find some money for this guy. We both thought he would begin the season in Triple-A.

AP4 will be somewhere around $15 and I'll be glad when it's not enough.

No bid? It seems like he's made the team. I see $8 PK5 in the spreadsheet but that isn't going to get him. Especially not in my NYC NL only draft tomorrow. I think someone, not me I hope, will pay $20+ for the privilege.

A dose of reality from Kyle Glaser at BA ...

Craig (Rochester): All Pete Alonso does is mash everywhere he goes. Yet there appears to still be great skepticism on the bat. Why such hard critique on him?

Kyle Glaser: The concern is he beats up on vanilla stuff. He did get to Nate Pearson's 103 mph fastball in the Fall Stars Game, and that was impressive. But it's mostly a lot of 88-93 mph straight fastballs he crushes. When he faces stuff with hard break or spin, it often goes downhill real fast. That's not to say he can't eventually adjust, but he's going to have to.

I'd drafted him in last year's reserve rounds, so watched him pretty closely all season.  It seemed as if he clearly had to adjust to AAA pitching - in his first 141 ABs (June/July) he had a 33% strikeout rate, in his last 117 (Aug/Sept) that was cut to a more tolerable .26%.  28% during the AFL stint.

He's doing a much better job controlling the plate so far in ST, but perhaps that's pitchers focusing on working on their stuff, instead of working on punching him out?

I saw the Dave Kingman reference elsewhere ... but interestingly Kingman regularly posted low-.200's BAs while putting up contact rates that we regularly see from Paul Goldschmidt.  What dragged him down was a career .252 BABIP.

My thoughts now are to expect some real problems for his first 100-200 MLB ABs, but that might create a buying opportunity.

We also had the pleasure of watching him get beat fairly easily on anything in on the hands last Fall.

Here's your answer, Andy. Tim and I aren't making Pete our first pick, because we're stubborn, but anyone else would.

Pete Alonso (1B) NY-N - Mar. 5

Alonso went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo home run in Monday's split-squad game against the Astros.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Both extra-base hits came in two-strikes counts, an impressive display from the 24-year-old. Alonso could well begin the season in the minors due to service-time considerations, but after slugging 36 homers in 132 games between Double-A and Triple-A last season, his bat seems more than ready for a new challenge -- and his blistering .412/.474/.882 start to the spring, including two homers and two doubles in 17 at-bats, doesn't hurt his case. Even if he cools his heels at Triple-A Syracuse for a few weeks, Alonso seems like he could be the answer at first base for the Mets, both in the long term and for the bulk of 2019.

If Alonso starts the season in the minors, he should  probably go #1 in the PCL reserve draft, right?

Asking for a friend.

Pete Alonso, 1B, Mets. With Jed Lowrie sidelined (which has moved Todd Frazier back to third base for now), the Mets have gotten a chance to play Alonso and Dominic Smith at first base regularly and both are making the most of their opportunity. Smith is hitting .500 while showing off improved conditioning and Alonso (who has asked to go by Pete and not Peter now) is showing excellent power. Yesterday Alonso hit his second home run of the spring and doubled as well, raising his average to .412 (7-for-17).
