Checking in with Alonso
When I reached Alonso on the phone, he was home in Miami and preparing to head to a weightlifting workout.
“I don’t stop,” Alonso said. “I don’t take any time off.”
As for the bone bruise in his right ankle that prematurely shelved Alonso in September, he hasn’t experienced any lingering problems. But he also hasn’t done a ton to test it. He has yet to resume hitting.
“It’s been good,” Alonso said. “I’m trying to lay off of it.”
