Padres Injury Update: Yonder Alonso exits with forearm strain

By on 8/13/2014 09:30:00 AM

San Diego Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso could be heading to the disabled list for the second time this season after making an early exit during Tuesday night's game. Corey Brock of reports that Alonso was replaced before the top of the fourth with a right forearm strain and was sent for an MRI to determine the extent of the problem. Manager Bud Black told Brock that Alonso felt something flare up suddenly when he was gripping a bat:

"That was a weird one," said Padres manager Bud Black. "He was standing right next to me and had a bat in his right hand. He did something with the bat that triggered some discomfort."
Black also told Brock that the discomfort was in a similar area to the issues he has previously experienced this season, which were described as right wrist tendinitis. That sent Alonso to the DL back in June and caused him to miss just over a month.

Tommy Medica, who has just returned from after being hit in the back of the helmet by a pitch at the weekend, moved in from left field to play first base. The Padres are starting to look a little short-handed as Everth Cabrera has gone back on the DL with another hamstring strain, barely a week after he was activated.
