Yonder Alonso, Braves finalize minor league contract

NORTH PORT, Fla. (AP) — First baseman Yonder Alonso and the Atlanta Braves finalized their minor league contract on Friday, and he will report to major league spring training.

If added to the 40-man roster, he would get a one-year contract with a $1 million salary while in the major leagues.

The 32-year-old gives the Braves depth behind Freddie Freeman, who had right elbow surgery in October. Freeman said last month he has no pain in the elbow and will be ready when position players report on Monday.

Alonso hit .199 with 10 home runs and 37 RBIs with Colorado and the Chicago White Sox last year, including .260 in 54 games with the Rockies.

And Alonso goes Yonder still.
