      Padres' Alexi Amarista: Not returning soon

      Padres manager Andy Green said Friday that Amarista (hamstring) is not close to a return, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. An estimated timetable for Amarista's recovery was not provided by the team when he hit the DL, but it sounds like he will be out well beyond the minimum 15 days. Even on the Padres, Amarista will likely remain merely a bench option upon his eventual return.

      Padres' Alexi Amarista: Placed on 15-day DL

      Amarista was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday with a right hamstring strain, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports. The move is retroactive to April 20, and guarantees consistent at-bats for Adam Rosales, as Yangervis Solarte and Cory Spangenberg are already on the disabled list. When Amarista returns he should occupy a bench role.

      Amarista is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, according to MLB.com's AJ Cassavell.

      Padres' Alexi Amarista: Starting again Thursday

      Amarista will start Thursday for the fourth game in a row, according to MLB.com's AJ Cassavell. Amarista did not break camp with the Padres, but he was added to the roster when Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list, and he has been the player to see the biggest bump in playing time in Solarte's absence. Amarista will man the hot corner Thursday and hit seventh against Phillies starter Vincent Velasquez.

      Padres' Alexi Amarista: Scores run, drives in another in 2016 debut

      Amarista, starting at third base, went 1-for-2 with a run and and RBI Monday afternoon. Amarista started the season in Triple-A but was recalled following Yangervis Solarte's injury. The infielder hit a paltry .204 last season, but recorded 12 stolen bases in 2014 and could swipe a couple if he gets consistent time with Solarte out.

      Padres' Alexi Amarista: Recalled from Triple-A El Paso

      Amarista (shoulder) has been recalled from Triple-A El Paso, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Amarista is currently en route to Colorado, where he is expected to be available for the Sunday afternoon matchup. With Yangervis Solarte on the disabled list with a hamstring injury, Amarista will provide the Padres with infield depth. Although Amarista is dealing with a shoulder injury of his own, he is already on the 40-man roster, making this move convenient from a procedural standpoint.

      Padres' Alexi Amarista: Sent to Triple-A

      Amarista (shoulder) was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, Desnnis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Amarista would have made the roster as a utility infielder, as Alexei Ramirez has already locked down the every day shortstop job. He'll work out his shoulder injury in the minors, but should be back up with the team at some point this season.

      Padres' Alexi Amarista: Unlikely to be ready for Opening Day, but has yet to be ruled out

      Manager Andy Green said Wednesday that it's "possible" that Amarista (shoulder) could be healthy enough to earn an Opening Day roster slot, but added that it was unlikely, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Amarista injured his shoulder on a diving attempt in the field Monday, and reports earlier Wednesday suggested that the diminutive shortstop could be on track for a DL stint to start the year. Manager Andy Green stopped short of saying that Amarista will start the season on the disabled list, but he was realistic with his expectations. If Amarista is unable to go on Opening Day, it could open a spot on the roster for Jemile Weeks to fill in as the reserve shortstop. That said, Alexei Ramirez figures to be the regular shortstop in San Diego this season.

      Padres' Alexi Amarista: May open season on the DL

      Amarista (shoulder) could open the season on the DL, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. A diving attempt Monday resulted in a jammed left shoulder for Amarista, who was on the roster bubble even before the injury due to poor performance throughout the spring. Amarista has gone just 11-for-45 (.244 average) with three extra-base hits in 20 Cactus League games. There's no guarantee he'll have a spot waiting for him once he's healthy.
