|Padres have options to fill in for suspended shortstop |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/5/13) Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said Monday infielders Logan Forsythe and Alexi Amarista will "certainly" get the chance to fill in at shortstop for the suspended Everth Cabrera, who will immediately begin serving a 50-game suspension for his involvment in the Biogenesis investigation. Ronny Cedeno, who signed a minor-league deal Saturday, will also be in the mix, according to U-T San Diego.
|Alexi Amarista a nice add in NL-only |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/30/13) Padres utility man Alexi Amarista is owned in 7 percent of leagues, despite hitting .275 with four home runs and eight doubles this year. Making him even more attractive is that Amarista, 24, is eligible at second base and the outfield in most formats.
Despite not having a solid position, Amarista has appeared in 15 games since May 12, starting six. In 33 at-bats, Amarista is hitting .364, with two doubles, three home runs and a 1.127 OPS. He has more at-bats this month than Craig Gentry, Kyle Blanks or Juan Francisco.
While Logan Forsythe's return may complicate things around the infield, Amarista has shown value in center field, where he's made 20 appearances this season. Just to sweeten the pot, Amarista needs just three more appearances at third base to gain eligibilty there in most formats.
He won't get you every day at-bats, but Amarista will contribute when he does get into games. And in deeper formats, there's definitely value in what Amarista brings to the table.
