Pete Alonso of the New York Mets is off to a slow start in a very surprising way - out of the 56 fastballs Alonso has seen so far this year he has a total of zero hits. This comes a shock because last year Alonso slugged .813 on the fastballs he saw in the strike zone, the best in the National League.
