From -- thru  --


Padres | Derek Norris, Alexei Ramirez out

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:16:58 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and SS Alexei Ramirez are not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, July 20. C Christian Bethancourt is catching and hitting seventh, while 2B Alexi Amarista is at the 6 and is batting eighth against Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Bethancourt has surprising pop with five home runs and 14 RBI as SD's backup catcher in 105 at-bats, but he's still more of a low-end sleeper pick to save salary cap space in DFS. Amarista barely moves the needle in even the deepest of fantasy leagues and is a long shot to make noise hitting low in the batting order.

Padres | Alexei Ramirez sits Tuesday

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 14:39:28 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Alexei Ramirez is not in the lineup Tuesday, July 19, against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez. SS Alexi Amarista will hit eighth against Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal off night for Ramirez, so go ahead and scratch him from your DFS or daily rosters. Amarista doesn't see enough action to merit any fantasy value.

Padres | Melvin Upton to bereavement list

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 14:25:10 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. was placed on the bereavement list Friday, July 15. In a corresponding move, OF/INF Alexi Amarista was recalled from Class AAA El Paso.

Fantasy Tip: Upton has been a sneaky good fantasy contributor this season with 45 runs, 16 home runs, 44 RBI, 20 stolen bases and a .262/.311/.454 slash line. It's his best campaign since leaving the Tampa Bay Rays in 2012, and Upton is should be owned in all formats because of his counting stat coverage. Amarista is a fantasy afterthought at this stage of the game.

Padres | Alexi Amarista optioned

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 09:19:31 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Alexi Amarista was optioned to the minors Sunday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Amarista wasn't playing much for the Friars with Ryan Schimpf starting most of the games at second base. The pint-sized infielder wasn't doing much at the plate, either (.256-0-6 with six stolen bases) and can be dropped in NL-only formats.

Padres | Three San Diego regulars resting

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:57:16 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Jon Jay, C Derek Norris and SS Alexei Ramirez are not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. OF Travis Jankowski is starting in center field and hitting leadoff, C Christian Bethancourt is catching and batting seventh and 2B Alexi Amarista is at the 6 and is hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark.

Fantasy Tip: Jankowski has the favorable lineup spot setting the table, but he's a light hitter and hasn't translated his speed to much success on the base paths (five steals in eight attempts). He's still more of a low-end outfield pick as a deep sleeper. Bethancourt has some power but remains inconsistent offensively, and Amarista carries very little fantasy allure because of limited power and speed.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte, Brett Wallace out

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 16:18:05 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (thumb) and 3B Brett Wallace are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Tuesday, June 14. 3B Ryan Schimpf will start at third base and is batting sixth, while SS Alexi Amarista will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Schimpf was hitting .355 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI with Class AAA El Paso when he was recalled by the Padres. He should be an option in NL-only leagues if he receives solid playing time. Owners in deeper mixed leagues and daily fantasy leagues should keep an eye on him. Amarista should be a decent option in NL-only leagues but is not a strong option in most leagues.

Padres | Brett Wallace not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 10:43:10 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Brett Wallace is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood Saturday, June 11. INF Yangervis Solarte will bat cleanup and play the hot corner, while INF Alexi Amarista will bat eighth and start at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte has just three hits in 17 at-bats over the past week but is batting .371 on the road this season and .313 versus Colorado pitching, so he's worth considering as a flier in daily fantasy games this afternoon. Amarista is 5-for-12 at the plate in June but should only be used if you're in desperate need of salary cap relief.

Padres | Derek Norris, Brett Wallace sitting

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 10:32:01 -0700

San Diego Padres C Derek Norris and 1B Brett Wallace are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 8. C Christian Bethancourt is doing the catching and is hitting sixth against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran. 2B Alexi Amarista draws into the lineup at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Bethacourt does have some pop (four home runs) but is a low-end boom-or-bust DFS option. Amarista has zero power and very little speed, so he's a desperation daily selection.

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.
