The latest Alexi Amarista MLB and fantasy baseball news

San Diego Padres 2B Logan Forsythe (foot), who is eligible to come off the 60-day disabled list May 22, will not start with baseball activities this week.
Fantasy Tip: Forsythe lost his chance to make a real impact in the infield for the Padres to open the season with Chase Headley out. Now, Headley is back and Jedd Gyorko has dug in at second base. Alexi Amarista has been effective as a super utility man, too, so Forsythe doesn't really have any spot to make a fantasy impact in.

San Diego Padres manager Bud Black said Friday, March 29, that 2B Jedd Gyorko will play at second base, with 3B Cody Ransom at third base, when the team faces a left-handed starting pitcher. When the team faces a right-handed starter, Gyorko will shift over to third base, and 2B Alexi Amarista will get the start at second base.
Fantasy Tip: Gyorko is a must-have for all fantasy owners, as he'll play regularly, and will have eligibility at 2B, 3B, MI and CI. Amarista should play a little more than Ransom, but both are best used in NL-only fantasy leagues of 10 or more teams.

San Diego Padres 2B Alexi Amarista will get the start at second base when the team faces a right-handed pitcher in the second game of the year April 3. 2B Jedd Gyorko will shift to third base.

San Diego Padres 2B Logan Forsythe (foot) is visiting with a specialist in San Diego after dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. There is a chance that he'll need to start the year on the disabled list, according to manager Bud Black. 3B Cody Ransom will likely take his roster spot and could start at third base on opening day. 2B Jedd Gyorko could also move to third base with 2B Alexi Amarista playing second, but the chances are that Gyorko will remain at the keystone.
Fantasy Tip: This is a tough break for Forsythe. Ransom can probably be ignored in all leagues, especially if Forsythe can make it back before Chase Headley (thumb) returns from the infirmary.

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is likely to move from second base to third base if 2B Logan Forsythe (foot) is placed on the 15-day disabled list to start the regular season. 2B Alexi Amarista is expected to take over as the starting second baseman, with INF Cody Ransom making the roster as a reserve infielder.
