2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Amarista slotted into the Padres' injury-riddled lineup wherever his services were required last season, and the result was at least 13 starts apiece at shortstop, second base, third base and in center field. The super-utilityman earned most of his run at short after Everth Cabrera hit the disabled list with a strained hamstring as the calendar turned to July, which combined with a DUI citation in early September to cap Cabrera at 40 at-bats the rest of the year. While Amarista contributed to the Padresí season-long hitting woes, he engineered a fair two-month stretch at the plate in July and August, assembling a .272/.326/.343 line, seven extra-base hits (including two home runs), seven stolen bases without a failure, and a 14:26 BB:K in 169 at-bats. For the season, though, he deviated little from his historical norm, offering scant contributions to fantasy endeavors. Following the Padresí decision to not tender a contract to Cabrera, Amarista enters the spring as the starting shortstop by default, but heíll have to fend off free-agent addition Clint Barmes for the position.

2014

The Padres were once again hammered by injuries in 2013, which benefited a fringe player like Amarista, who garnered at least five starts at second base, shortstop, and left and center fields. He spent a fair portion of the year in a platoon at the latter with Chris Denorfia due to Cameron Maybin's lost season, entering the lineup against right-handed starting pitchers. As a whole, Amarista grades out as a stellar defensive option due to a combined .982 fielding percentage, which will aid in him receiving playing time about the park. He has yet to display the base-stealing prowess from his minor league days, though, succeeding just 12-of-18 times in 695 career at-bats, which will do little to allay his poor eye at the plate. Consequently, expect him to settle into a super-utility role yet again.

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, donít expect much at the major league level this season unless Amarista tears it up and forces the Angels to deal one of their infielders.
