Padres | Brett Wallace out of the lineup

Sun, 29 May 2016 11:40:36 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Brett Wallace is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Archie Bradley Sunday, May 29. 1B Yangervis Solarte will start at third base, while SS Alexi Amarista will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista has only four hits in his last 10 games and is not a strong option for most fantasy owners. Owners should be able to find better players to use in their lineups.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte at second base

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:33:40 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and is hitting cleanup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Friday, May 27. 2B Alexi Amarista will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte should be a lineup regular for SD now that he's healthy, and his multipositional eligibility makes him a decent depth piece in deep mixed and NL-only universes. Hitting cleanup tonight against a lefty also makes him an attractive value pick in daily games.

Padres | Alexi Amarista draws into lineup

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:16:08 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Alexi Amarista is starting at second base and is hitting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija Thursday, May 19. 2B Jose Pirela starts on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista and Pirela should split the duties at the keystone, at least until Cory Spangenberg returns from the DL. Neither infielder has much fantasy appeal, though, both with next to no power and very little speed. They barely move the needle as depth in NL-only leagues.

Padres | Alexi Amarista activated from DL

Wed, 18 May 2016 15:19:59 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Alexi Amarista (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, May 18. In a corresponding move, RP Tayron Guerrero was optioned to Class AAA El Paso.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista owns a career .229/.277/.325 slash line through his six-year career and doesn't offer any speed. He should see enough at-bats to be a depth option in NL-only formats, but there isn't a lot to be excited about. Amarista's return will also push Jose Pirela further from fantasy relevance.

Padres | Rehab updates for Friars

Tue, 17 May 2016 17:11:40 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Alexi Amarista (hamstring) is playing second base and leading off for Class AA San Antonio to start his rehab assignment Tuesday, May 17. 3B Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) played seven innings in an extended spring training game Monday, May 16, and he's slightly behind Amarista. 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) had a setback while trying to run two weeks ago for the first time. He hasn't run since or participated in any baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like none of this trio will be ready to return for at least another week or two. Amarista is more of a utility player at the big league level. Solarte and Spangenberg were in starting roles when they were injured. Solarte can contribute modestly across the board but doesn't have much upside, while Spangenberg is mainly attractive in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues for his wheels.

Padres | Alexi Amarista to DL

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 04:44:14 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexi Amarista (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, April 23, with a strained right hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista was a .333 hitter this season through eight games, but he has lost a starting job with the acquisition of Alexei Ramirez from the Chicago White Sox. Adam Rosales should get some at-bats with Amarista on the bench.

Padres | Adam Rosales draws a start

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 14:48:55 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Adam Rosales is starting at third base and is hitting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Tuesday, April 19. SS Alexi Amarista will start on the bench against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Rosales is a career .242 hitter against left-handers, but he lacks experience and power in a weak San Diego lineup. There are many better daily options to consider if you're looking to save money on your lineup.

Padres | Alexi Amarista not playing

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 12:21:17 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Alexi Amarista is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Sunday, April 17. 2B Adam Rosales will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rosales has picked up only one hit in his last 11 at-bats but does have two RBI on the season. Owners should be able to find options to use in their starting lineups.

Padres | Brett Wallace playing third base Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 11:27:55 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Brett Wallace will bat cleanup and start at third base against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Saturday, April 16. INF Alexi Amarista, who played the hot corner Friday, April 15, will start at second base Saturday, with 2B Cory Spangenberg receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace is 1-for-10 with five strikeouts and should be avoided in daily fantasy leagues during his ice-cold stretch at the plate, despite the fact that he's hitting in a favorable spot in the batting order.

Padres | Derek Norris, Alexei Ramirez sitting

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 12:42:55 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and SS Alexei Ramirez are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. C Christian Bethancourt is catching and hitting sixth, while SS Alexi Amarista is at shortstop and is hitting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff. Also, 3B Adam Rosales gets a start at third base and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Eickhoff is an impressive young pitcher for the Phils, so the Padres could have trouble with him in the series finale. Bethancourt, Amarista and Rosales are all low-end options in daily formats today.
