Alexi Amarista swats two homers in three-game stretch


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Padres infielder Alexi Amarista knocked two home runs in a three-game stretch this week to extend his quality play over the last week-plus.

Amarista is batting .400/.406/.667 with two home runs and 10 RBI over his last eight games, and he's 7 for 15 with the pair of home runs in his last four games. His hot streak has improved his line to .246/.293/.325 with five home runs, 37 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 391 at-bats.


Alexi Amarista puts together three-hit game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) Padres infielder Alexi Amarista was uncharacteristically productive Thursday, though it cmame in a 4-3 loss to the Cardinals.

Amarista put together his first three-hit game since late July, as he went 3 for 4 with a double in the loss. He had no other stats as the Padres fell.

Amarista improved his line for the month of August to .269/.296/.308 with the performance, but he is still hitting just .235 for the season.  


Alexi Amarista comes through in the clutch Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Padres outfielder Alexi Amarista managed to come through with a big hit Sunday against the Padres. 

Amarista did not start the game, but was used as a pinch-hitter for Ian Kennedy in the seventh inning. With his team trailing 1-0, Amarista stepping in against Nate Eovaldi. He got down in the count early against Eovaldi, who had thrown an excellent game up to that point. Amarista stayed in the at-bat, fouling off a number of pitches. On the ninth pitch of the at-bat, he took a slider out to the right field stands for a three-run home run. 

The Padres held onto the lead, making Amarista the hero on his 25th birthday. Amarista finished 1 for 2, with 1 run scored and 3 RBI.


Four players expected to fill in at third base for San Diego


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Padres manager Bud Black said four players -- Alexi AmaristaRyan Jackson, Alberto Gonzalez and Jace Peterson -- could all get playing time at third base this spring while Chase Headley is sidelined by a calf injury.

"We'll mix and match over at third," Black said, per MLB.com. "It's good for those guys. It will be great for those guys to get exposed to third base. They'll get some [at-bats], some playing time.

"We know what Chase can do. Here in the short term, it will be good to get those guys exposed. They are up for it."

It will be a good experience for Amarista, who is expected to serve in a utility role for San Diego.

"Alexi's game, for me, is his versatility," Black said. "You look at all the components of his game, he's capable at second, capable at short, capable at third, capable of all three outfield spots. He's a very dependable player on defense. On offense, he's done some things to win some games for us. He can move around the diamond, he doesn't scare off, he plays with energy. He's a good all-around player."


Padres have options to fill in for suspended shortstop


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2013) 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
(5/30/2013) 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. 


Alexi Amarista ties career-high


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2013) Padres infielder/outfielder Alexi Amarista tied a career-high with three extra-base hits Wednesday at Baltimore. Amarista had a pair of doubles and one home run.

He finished 3 for 5 with two RBI, three runs and one strikeout. He has seven doubles and three home runs in 2013. Amarista is batting .368 (7 for 19) with two home runs and three RBI in his last six games.


Alexi Amarista takes advantage of playing time


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2013) 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.


Alexi Amarista uncorks first homer


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2013) 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
(4/18/2013) 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
(4/8/2013) 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. 


Logan Forsythe injury opens playing time for Alexi Amarista


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2013) Playing time at third base may have opened up for Alexi Amarista in the wake of Logan Forsythe's foot injury. Forsythe was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis Thursday and is out at least six weeks.

The Padres will start the season using Jedd Gyorko, Cody Ransom and Amarista to cover second and third base as a result. Amarista, the only left-handed batter of the bunch, could get a decent chunk of playing time against right-handed pitching.

Amarista hit .240/.282/.385 in 105 games as a Padre last year. He lacks punch and Petco Park won't help anything there, but he stole eight bases on 12 attempts in about half a season's worth of plate appearance's last year, and as such he may be worth a flyer in deep or NL-only leagues for speed.


Amarista perfect utility man


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2013) San Diego utility man Alexi Amarista could be the ideal bench player for manager Bud Black and the Padres this season, reports MLB.com Tuesday. "His skill set does line up to be a very valuable part of a National League team," Black said Tuesday, when Amarista went 1 for 4 with an RBI and run scored against the Reds, starting at second base before moving to center field. "[He can play] second, short, third, left, right, center. He can do the little game, he has a little bit of pop, and I trust him on defense."
