Injuries have dogged Alonso the last two seasons--he missed 30 games in 2015 with a broken foot and later broke his nose, and in May 2016 he missed time with a broken left hand. He nevertheless has been the Gators' most consistent power bat in that span and was leading the '16 Gators in batting and homers when he got hurt.
