Pete Alonso, the first baseman for the New York Mets, has been diagnosed with a bone bruise and a sprain of his left wrist, and the team has estimated that it will take him between three and four weeks to make a full recovery from the injury. As part of a series of moves that also involve the right-handed pitcher Stephen Nogosek being designated for assignment, he has been placed on the 10-day disabled list. In a corresponding move, infielder Luis Guillorme and left-handed pitcher Zach Muckenhirn were brought back into the lineup.

The club also announced that catcher Tomás Nido has been outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse and that right-handed pitcher Edwin Uceta has undergone surgery to correct a damaged meniscus in his left knee. The organization anticipates that Edwin Uceta will return to the mound in eight weeks after the procedure.

Obviously, the Mets’ most significant recent turn of events is the loss of Pete Alonso. It was reported this morning that the home run hitter with the most in the MLB will be moving on to the IL. The fact that he did not sustain a fracture is a positive development, but he will be away for longer than the minimum stay required.

Due to Alonso’s absence, youngster Mark Vientos, who is currently in the lineup as the designated hitter against Pittsburgh starter Rich Hill, will probably get the opportunity to play first base. This evening, Mark Canha, who normally plays in the outfield, will be taking over at first base. It is likely that the starting first baseman will miss the next four weeks due to injury.

Pete Alonso, the slugging first baseman for the New York Mets, was drafted by the team in the second round of the 2016 MLB draft. However, before his professional career, Alonso had an impressive journey in both college and high school.

Born on December 7, 1994, in Tampa, Florida, Alonso attended Jesuit High School, where he excelled both on the baseball field and in the classroom. As a high school player, Alonso showcased his power-hitting ability, earning recognition as one of the top prospects in Florida. He was named the Hillsborough County Baseball Player of the Year in his senior season.

After graduating from high school, Alonso went on to play college baseball at the University of Florida. He became a standout player for the Gators, making an immediate impact in his freshman year. He hit .300 with 15 home runs and 72 RBIs, helping lead the Gators to the College World Series. Alonso’s success continued throughout his college career. In his sophomore season, he hit .374 with 14 home runs and 60 RBIs, earning First-Team All-SEC honors. Despite battling injuries in his junior year, he still managed to hit .294 with 14 home runs and 60 RBIs.

In 2016, after his junior season, Alonso was selected by the New York Mets in the second round of the MLB draft. He decided to forgo his senior year at the University of Florida and signed with the Mets, embarking on his professional baseball journey. Alonso quickly rose through the ranks of the Mets’ minor league system, showcasing his immense power at every level. In 2019, he made his much-anticipated MLB debut and took the league by storm. Since then he hasn’t looked back and is among the best players in MLB. So far in his career, Alonso has played five seasons in the MLB, in which he has a .258 batting average, 565 hits, 168 homers, 429 RBIs, and 351 runs scored.
