Padres recalled INF/OF Alexi Amarista from Triple-A El Paso.

Amarista will fill in for Yangervis Solarte, who was placed on the family leave list in a corresponding move. Amarista, 27, has hit .239/.299/.261 in 98 plate appearances this year at the major league level.
Jul 27 - 10:10 AM

Padres optioned INF/OF Alexi Amarista to Triple-A El Paso.

Amarista was sent out with Brett Wallace returning from the paternity leave list. The 27-year-old is batting .239/.299/.261 in 98 plate appearances at the major league level this year.
Jul 21 - 4:07 PM

Padres recalled INF/OF Alexi Amarista from Triple-A El Paso.

Amarista has hit just .256/.319/.280 in 82 at-bats this year for San Diego. He's not fantasy relevant.
Jul 15 - 5:27 PM

Padres optioned INF/OF Alexi Amarista to Triple-A El Paso.

Amarista is hitting only .256/.319/.280 over 82 at-bats with the big club this season. He'll return at some point later this summer.
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.

Alexi Amarista (hamstring) went 2-for-5 in his rehab debut Tuesday with Double-A San Antonio.

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.
May 18 - 12:32 PM

Alexi Amarista (hamstring) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday night.

Amarista should be back with the Padres by the end of the week if all goes smoothly on the farm. He's a little bit ahead of Yangervis Solarte (hamstring), who is still playing in games at extended spring training.
May 17 - 7:35 PM

Alex Amarista (hamstring) has begun playing extended spring training games.

So has teammate Yangervis Solarte (hamstring). Beat writer Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune suggested both players are close to beginning rehab assignments with High-A Lake Elsinore. Amarista began the year with Triple-A El Paso but was called up to take Solarte's place at third base. Now both are on the comeback trail.
May 14 - 8:10 PM

Padres placed 3B Alexi Amarista on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

The move is retroactive to April 20. Cesar Vargas was called up to take his roster spot. Amarista was sent up to replace Yangeris Solarte (hamstring) earlier this month but obviously he wasn't able to take advantage. With Solarte and Amarista both out, Adam Rosales should see regular playing time at third base.
Apr 23 - 5:33 PM

Alexi Amarista stole his first base of the season on Wednesday and went 2-for-3 in a loss to the Phillies.

Amarista got the big-league call once Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) landed on the 15-day DL, so he should see some time at third base and shortstop in the coming weeks. The 27-year-old got a couple of hits on Wednesday and was the only Padre with multiple hits in the game. He did steal a base and is perhaps tempting for fantasy owners who are desperate to add some speed to their rosters, but he's a career .227/.274/.325 hitter. Don't do it.
Apr 13 - 10:13 PM

Padres recalled INF Alexi Amarista from Triple-A El Paso.

Amarista should get some playing time at third base with Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) sidelined. However, he's not worth owning in fantasy leagues.
Apr 10 - 1:06 PM

Padres optioned INF Alexi Amarista to Triple-A El Paso.

They're expected to add Adam Rosales to their roster on Monday to serve as a utility infielder. Amarista should be back in the majors at some point.
