|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.

(5/12/13) Padres second baseman Alexi Amarista hit his second homer of the season during a 4-2 interleague loss at Tampa Bay Sunday. With Jedd Gyorko getting a rest, Amarista drew his first start at second base since April 20 and hit a solo shot off Roberto Hernandez in the fifth inning.
He finished 1 for 4. Amarist had two starts during the three-game series, including an appearance in center field the previous game. Amarista went 2 for 8 and now owns a .233 batting average.

(4/29/13) Padres utility man Alexi Amarista turned in a productive performance in Sunday's series finale against the Giants.
Amarista, who played at center, took starter Ryan Vogelsong deep in the fourth inning for a two-run home run. He finished 2 for 3 with a walk, three runs scored and two RBI in a 6-4 victory.
Amarista is hitting .250/.291/.365 with one homer and eight RBI in 52 at-bats.
|Alexi Amarista's playing time may decrease|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/18/13) Padres second baseman Alexi Amarista will likely see a reduction in playing time with Chase Headley back from the disabled list. Amarista has played in all 15 Padres games to start the year, making nine starts at second base.
Amarista has hit .225/.262/.300 in 43 plate appearances this season.
Padres use safety squeeze to sink Giants in 13th inning
Will Venable made an incredible catch to save San Diego, pinch-hitting pitcher Andrew Cashner drove in the go-ahead run with a perfectly executed safety squeeze in the 13th inning, and the Padres extended their season-best winning streak to seven games with a 5-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.
Stults tosses 2-hitter, lifts Padres over D-Backs
Left-hander Eric Stults threw a career-best two-hitter and Logan Forsythe hit a bases-loaded, two-run single with two outs in the sixth to give the San Diego Padres a 2-1 victory against the NL West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.
|Alexi Amarista got a chance to play on a semi-regular basis for the Padres after coming over from the Angels in the Ernesto Frieri deal last May, splitting time between second base, shortstop and left field. His playing time took a serious hit when Logan Forsythe entered the picture in June, though. By September, Amarista was more or less an afterthought, his only playing time coming in relief of Carlos Quentin and his balky knees. If anything, Amarista's opportunities to contribute will only decrease in 2013 with top prospect Jedd Gyorko getting a tryout at second base this spring. Of course, the diminutive 23-year-old is better suited for a reserve role anyway. He managed to compile a high batting average while playing in favorable hitting environments in the minors, but his shaky walk rate prevents him from making full use of his speed. He's not a big threat for homers either. If an injury opens the door for him to get regular playing time at some point in 2013, Amarista could be a viable contributor in NL-only leagues, but you can pretty much ignore him on Draft Day.
