Alonso was the starting first baseman to begin 2013. On April 10, Alonso started at first base against the Dodgers. In the 9th inning, with second baseman Alexi Amarista having been pinch-hit for the previous inning, Alonso moved to second base for the first time in his professional career. With left-handed hitter Andre Ethier up after Adrian Gonzalez hit a ground ball to second that Alonso couldn't come up with, Alonso and third baseman Jedd Gyorko switched positions. After Ethier was hit and two right-handed hitters were due, Alonso and Gyorko switched again, and the Padres got out of the inning after A. J. Ellis grounded out to third. On June 6, Alonso was placed on the 15-day disabled list after he got hit on the hand by a pitch from Aaron Loup on May 31. Kyle Blanks and Jesús Guzmán then entered a platoon while Alonso was out. At the time, he was hitting . 284 with 6 HR and 29 RBI. He was activated on July 12, 2013. On August 30, Alonso suffered a separate injury to his right hand, which caused him to miss most of September. Blanks and Guzmán filled in initially, but when Tommy Medica was called up, he started the rest of the season at first. Alonso returned to action on September 28, and appeared in 2 games as a pinch-runner. In 97 games in 2013, he hit . 281/. 341/. 368 with six home runs and 45 RBIs.
