Rockies' Alexi Amarista: Leaves after being plunked
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amarista exited Wednesday's spring game after he was hit by a pitch on his forearm, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Amarista had his wrist checked out in the dugout afterwards, but the substitution primarily appeared to be precautionary, as it didn't appear to be overly serious. He should be considered day-to-day until the Rockies note otherwise.

Rockies' Alexi Amarista: Goes hitless in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Amarista participated in his first spring game Sunday and went 0-for-2.

The utility man logged all his innings at shortstop during Colorado's split-squad game, although with Trevor Story locked in at that spot and stalwarts Nolan Arenado, DJ LeMehieu and Ian Desmond rounding off the infield, Amarista seems to just be staying sharp as he prepares for a reserve utility role. The 27-year-old has never hit higher than .257 during his big league career, but his ability to play infield and outfield along with his major league contract status should give him an inside track to one of the more prominent bench roles for the Rockies.

Rockies' Alexi Amarista: Signs with Rockies on one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Amarista agreed to a one-year contract with the Rockies on Monday that includes a club option for 2018, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The 27-year-old was non-tendered by the Padres earlier in December, but he'll remain in the NL West and reunite with his former manager Bud Black. Amarista doesn't have the most impressive batting line (career .230/.276/.320) and he'll be blocked at nearly every position for playing time, but his speed and expansive defensive versatility should play well into a super utility role off of Colorado's bench.

Alexi Amarista: Non-tendered by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres declined to tender Amarista a contract Friday, making him a free agent, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Amarista provided versatility off the Padres' bench, making starts at five different positions last season. He makes decent contact but has never been an offensive threat (career .230/.276/.320), and there's a chance he could find himself back in the minors to begin 2017.

Padres' Alexi Amarista: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Amarista (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day DL on Friday.

He has been out for exactly a month with a left hamstring strain and now the Padres can activate him without a corresponding move, thanks to roster expansion. Amarista has hit a pretty empty .280 this season with zero home runs, eight runs, nine RBI and eight steals in 110 plate appearances. He should be used in a utility role in the season's final month, seeing time at second base, third base, shortstop and in the outfield corners.
