Alexi Amarista comes through in the clutch Sunday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Padres outfielder Alexi Amarista managed to come through with a big hit Sunday against the Padres. 

Amarista did not start the game, but was used as a pinch-hitter for Ian Kennedy in the seventh inning. With his team trailing 1-0, Amarista stepping in against Nate Eovaldi. He got down in the count early against Eovaldi, who had thrown an excellent game up to that point. Amarista stayed in the at-bat, fouling off a number of pitches. On the ninth pitch of the at-bat, he took a slider out to the right field stands for a three-run home run. 

The Padres held onto the lead, making Amarista the hero on his 25th birthday. Amarista finished 1 for 2, with 1 run scored and 3 RBI.

Four players expected to fill in at third base for San Diego
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Padres manager Bud Black said four players -- Alexi AmaristaRyan Jackson, Alberto Gonzalez and Jace Peterson -- could all get playing time at third base this spring while Chase Headley is sidelined by a calf injury.

"We'll mix and match over at third," Black said, per MLB.com. "It's good for those guys. It will be great for those guys to get exposed to third base. They'll get some [at-bats], some playing time.

"We know what Chase can do. Here in the short term, it will be good to get those guys exposed. They are up for it."

It will be a good experience for Amarista, who is expected to serve in a utility role for San Diego.

"Alexi's game, for me, is his versatility," Black said. "You look at all the components of his game, he's capable at second, capable at short, capable at third, capable of all three outfield spots. He's a very dependable player on defense. On offense, he's done some things to win some games for us. He can move around the diamond, he doesn't scare off, he plays with energy. He's a good all-around player."

Padres have options to fill in for suspended shortstop
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said Monday infielders Logan Forsythe and Alexi Amarista will "certainly" get the chance to fill in at shortstop for the suspended Everth Cabrera, who will immediately begin serving a 50-game suspension for his involvment in the Biogenesis investigation. Ronny Cedeno, who signed a minor-league deal Saturday, will also be in the mix, according to U-T San Diego.

Alexi Amarista a nice add in NL-only
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

Padres utility man Alexi Amarista is owned in 7 percent of leagues, despite hitting .275 with four home runs and eight doubles this year. Making him even more attractive is that Amarista, 24, is eligible at second base and the outfield in most formats. 

Despite not having a solid position, Amarista has appeared in 15 games since May 12, starting six. In 33 at-bats, Amarista is hitting .364, with two doubles, three home runs and a 1.127 OPS. He has more at-bats this month than Craig Gentry, Kyle Blanks or Juan Francisco.

While Logan Forsythe's return may complicate things around the infield, Amarista has shown value in center field, where he's made 20 appearances this season. Just to sweeten the pot, Amarista needs just three more appearances at third base to gain eligibilty there in most formats. 

He won't get you every day at-bats, but Amarista will  contribute when he does get into games. And in deeper formats, there's definitely value in what Amarista brings to the table.
