RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Amarista played 18 games at Triple-A Salt Lake in the Angels organization, before being traded to the Padres in early May. From there, he had a short stint in the minors, before playing the rest of the season in the big leagues with the Padres. Part of what makes Amarista intriguing to fantasy owners is the position flexibility he brings, as he played at every defensive position in 2012, outside of first base and catcher. Offensively, he is challenged by the fact that he does not make much contact and he has very limited power. If he were to flash the speed he showed in the minors in 2011, when he stole 15 bases over 396 plate appearances, he would be quite the endgame sleeper, entering 2013. As is, however, he is a player that needs to refine his eye at the plate and continue to bring all of his gloves to the park as he serves as the ultimate utility player for the Padres.

2012

Amarista made his major league debut last season, but he hit just .154 in 23 games. While it remains to be seen if Amarista can hit at the top level, his ability to play both infield and outfield makes him a valuable defensive replacement. Amarista will have a shot at earning a bench job with the big club during spring training.

2011

Amarista began last season in High-A, but he advanced all the way to Triple-A by the end of the season and finished with a .309 batting average, 42 extra-base hits and 25 stolen bases. Amarista has been a high-average/high-stolen-base player throughout his minor league career, so it is now time to start getting excited since he will likely open 2011 in Triple-A again. Still, don’t expect much at the major league level this season unless Amarista tears it up and forces the Angels to deal one of their infielders.
