It didn't take long for the Cleveland Indians to move on and find a first baseman after Carlos Santana's departure via free agency to Philadelphia.
Wednesday night, USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale was the first to report that the Tribe has come to terms with free agent 1B Yonder Alonso.
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and The Athletic adds the terms of the deal
The 30-year-old Alonso indeed was an All-Star last season, hitting .266 with 28 HR and 67 RBI in 142 games with the A's and Mariners. He spent the first six years of his big league career in the National League with the Reds and Padres, but never came close to the numbers he put up last season when he shifted leagues.
Take this with how many grains of salt you wish: Alonso is the brother-in-law of free agent Manny Machado, a name that has also been linked to the Tribe in the past.
Santana finalized a three-year, $60 million dollar deal with the Phillies earlier this week.
