(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.

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.
|Alexi Amarista has struggled in full-time role|
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/8/13) Padres infielder Alexi Amarista has struggled in a full-time role at the start of the season.
Amarista fell into the gig after injuries to Chase Headley and Logan Forsythe. Jedd Gyorko was expected to open the year at second, and should move back there once Headley returns. Unless Amarista is able to show something over the next few weeks, he's unlikely to retain his spot once everyone is healthy.
|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.
