Padres non-tendered INF Alexi Amarista.
The 27-year-old had a mediocre season in a utility role for the Padres in 2016, hitting .257/.295/.271 with no homers, 11 RBI and nine stolen bases in 150 plate appearances. He'll look for another opportunity in free agency but is likely to be irrelevant in most fantasy formats regardless of where he lands. Dec 2 - 8:53 PM

Amarista is working his way back from a strained left hamstring. The Padres are hoping he'll return some time during the Padres' road trip that begins on August 26. The 27-year-old utility man has hit .280 over 100 at-bats for the Friars this year.

Aug 2 - 5:50 PM

Alexi Amarista left Monday's game against the Brewers due to a left hamstring strain.

Amarista suffered the injury while running between second and third on a Wil Myers double. He immediately grabbed his hamstring before limping into the dugout. The Padres will reevaluate him on Tuesday, but at the very least, he will probably miss a few days. A trip to the disabled list could be in the cards, too.
Aug 2 - 1:20 AM

Alexi Amarista limped off the field in the fifth inning of Monday's game against the Brewers.

Amarista was running the bases on a Wil Myers double when he grabbed his left hamstring between second and third. He proceeded to limp off the field. A trip to the disabled list looks very possible given Amarista's visceral reaction, but the Padres should provide clarification as to the extent of the injury on Tuesday.
Aug 2 - 12:26 AM

Alexi Amarista went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Reds.

Jul 3 - 1:53 PM

Alexi Amarista went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI singles and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

Amarista served as the entirety of the Padres offense on Tuesday, as his second- and fourth-inning RBI singles against Marlins starter Tom Koehler brought home both of his team's runs in the 5-2 defeat. Amarista is up to six steals on the season, but he has just four homers and nine RBI over 70 at-bats. Look elsewhere for fantasy glory.
Jun 15 - 1:33 AM

Alexi Amarista went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the Giants.

Amarista drove home the only Padres run of the evening when he notched an RBI double against Giants starter Jeff Samardzija in the second inning. Otherwise, nothing doing for San Diego. Amarista was just activated off the disabled list on Wednesday. He had been dealing with a right hamstring strain. The 27-year-old infielder holds a career triple-slash of .229/.277/.325 in the majors and holds no fantasy upside.
May 20 - 12:41 AM

Padres activated INF Alexi Amarista from the 15-day disabled list.

Amarista landed on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain in late April. He went 2-for-5 in his rehab game with Double-A San Antonio on Tuesday. The Padres are apparently confident enough in his health that they won't be tossing him back out there for another rehab appearance. In 21 at-bats with the Padres prior to the bum hammy, he had picked up seven singles and two steals. Amarista is not a fantasy-relevant player.
May 18 - 6:46 PM

Amarista saw time at second base and third base, and he came out of the game without any problems with his hamstring. He should be ready for activation sometime this weekend. The infielder has been on the disabled list since April 23 due to a right hamstring strain.
