Latest Update Amarista stays hot Friday Sat Sep, 20, 07:25 AM
Displays good patience and the ability to make consistent contact at the dish. Has good speed. Can play several positions, both in the infield and outfield, so he is plenty versatile.
Flaws: : Doesn't always use his speed to maximize his impact on the field. Lacks power, mainly due to a lack of ideal size. Must prove he can play with more consistency, since he's very streaky.
Amarista stayed hot Friday night, and is now 10-for-26 (.385 BA) with four extra-base hits and 1- RBI over his last seven games. Although his is now sitting on just a .246 average, his recent production warrants deep league consideration as he tries to finish the year on a high note. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Amarista has been hitting the ball very well of late, going 11-for-26 (.423 BA) with two home runs, eight RBI and four runs scored over his last seven games. However, he is hitting just .245 with five home runs and 35 RBI through 387 at-bats this season, making him a play for those in NL-only at best the rest of the way.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Amarista is now slashing .245/.273/.321 with one home run, seven RBI and five runs scored in the month of September as he continues to earn regular playing time at shortstop for the Padres. However, unless he starts to provide more in either the runs scored or RBI department, he is best served on the waiver wire outside of desperate situations. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Amarista is having himself another sub-par season at the plate, slashing .235/.285/.306 with three home runs, 23 RBI, 30 runs scored and 11 stolen bases through 294 at-bats. Despite receiving regular playing time for much of the season Amarista has failed to take advantage of the situation, making him only viable in NL-only leagues due to the multi-position eligibility he brings to the table.
