Abraham Almonte hit a solo home run and an RBI single on Tuesday.

Almonte did a little bit of everything on Tuesday. The home run, Almonte's second of the year, came in the first inning off of Brewers' starter Jimmy Nelson. Almonte added an RBI single in the second inning. In addition to the hits, he also added a stolen base and scored two runs. These are the kinds of games that will get him continued run in the starting lineup. Since being traded to the Padres, Almonte's slashed a nice .316/.333/.474.

Abraham Almonte went 4-for-5 with a double, run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's setback against the Dodgers.

Almonte was spectacular at the dish, but an adventure on the base paths, as he was caught stealing and later thrown out to end the game. Fortunately, the latter two mistakes won't be counted in the vast majority of formats. He's almost unowned across formats, and that needs to change. The 25-year-old -- Seattle's Opening Day center fielder and leadoff hitter -- is slashing .361/.368/.528 since coming over in the Chris Denorfia deal. As long as he's hot and playing every day, Almonte should be started in NL-only formats.

Padres recalled OF Abraham Almonte from Triple-A El Paso.

Almonte was acquired from the Mariners on Thursday as part of the trade for Chris Denorfia. The 25-year-old hit .198/.248/.292 with a homer, eight RBI and troubling 40/6 K/BB ratio in 106 at-bats with the M's.

Abraham Almonte is scheduled to join the Padres on Friday.

Almonte was acquired from the Mariners on Thursday as part of the Chris Denorfia deal. It's not clear what role him play out of the gate, as the Padres have a number of options, but he could be relevant in NL-only leagues depending on how things play out.

Padres acquired OF Abraham Almonte and RHP Stephen Kohlscheen from the Mariners for OF Chris Denorfia.

A classic case of using an asset that has lost value to your organization (Denorfia is likely to be retired by the time San Diego returns to the playoffs) to buy low on an intriguing asset. Not long ago, Almonte was batting leadoff in the Mariners' Opening Day lineup. After a couple good games, he looked completely lost at the plate, and was banished to the minors in early May. Almonte, a former Yankees' farmhand, hammered the ball to the tune of a .300/.394/.482 slash line in the minors last year, but he's yet to pick up the pieces this year. Even so, his acquisition is a low-cost, worthwhile gamble for the Padres.

Mariners optioned OF Abraham Almonte to Triple-A Tacoma.

The 24-year-old won the team's center field job out of spring training and began the season as the M's leadoff hitter but struggled mightily with the bat, slashing just .198/.248/.292 with a homer and eight RBI in his 26 games. Michael Saunders is expected to see the bulk of the playing time in center while Almonte works to get back on track in the minor leagues.

Abraham Almonte has been dropped from the leadoff spot for Saturday's game against the Rangers.

Almonte will instead bat second -- an odd spot to move a struggling hitter. The 24-year-old owns a rough .215/.263/.323 slash line with 33 strikeouts in 22 games this season. Michael Saunders will bat leadoff on Saturday.
