Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso is headed back to the disabled list, this time with a strained right forearm.

Alonso previously missed about six weeks in June and July with right wrist tendinitis and he’d been on fire since returning, hitting .421 in 15 games. Unfortunately that hot stretch brought his season totals up to a still-poor .240 batting average and .682 OPS in 84 games.

Tommy Medica shifted from left field to first base when Alonso exited Tuesday’s game.

    So tired of watching this Cabrera, Alonso, Maybin, Grandal foursome constantly head to the DL or get busted for PEDS (Alonso is clean at least). Perennial underachieving players…you have to rid yourself of them. Lose Quentin as well.

      That may well happen in the near future. There are replacements for all five already in the organization, though a couple are more than a year away.
