Manager Andy Green is hopeful that Amarista (hamstring) will be able to return at some point during the team's next road trip, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista will test his injured hamstring with some running Friday, and if all goes well, a rehab assignment may not be too far off. Still, the Padres' next road trip doesn't even start until Aug. 26, and the team could always opt to just wait until rosters expand Sept. 1 to reinstate Amarista.

Amarista (hamstring) has been placed on the 15-day DL by the Padres on Tuesday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista left Monday's game with a hamstring injury, and it looks like it will sideline him for a least a couple of weeks. The 27-year-old was hitting .350 in his last 20 at-bats for the Padres. He will be eligible to return from the DL on August 17.

Amarista was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

This will be Amarista's second stint with the Padres this season, although he has spent most of the year with the big league club. He slashed .256/.319/.280 in 92 plate appearances in the first half and should return to his super utility role off the bench going forward.

Amarista was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, MLB.com's AJ Cassavell reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Padres needed room on the roster to activate Andrew Cashner from the DL on Sunday, and it turns out that Amarista, a reserve infielder, was deemed expendable. The 27-year-old has appeared in over 100 games in three straight seasons for the Padres, and will likely be back up with the team as soon as the need for an extra bench player arises.

Amarista went 2-for-3 with a steal, two RBI and a walk Tuesday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista was the lone bright spot offensively for the Padres, as he singled in both of the team's runs in a losing effort. Although he's only had 20 at-bats this month, he's posted a .350 June batting average after hitting only .138 in May to bring his season batting average to .257.

Amarista is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Even with Yangervis Solarte nursing a thumb injury, manager Andy Green will give Brett Wallace the start at third base, and Adam Rosales the nod at the keystone. Amarista is strong defensively, but a .246 batting average leaves much to be desired, even if it is his best career mark.

Amarista is playing second base and batting eighth against Colorado on Saturday, Bill Center of Padres.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista is getting the start with Brett Wallace sitting out and Yangervis Solarte sliding over to third base. While Amarista's numbers this year are not overwhelming, he's having a nice year by his standards, posting career high's in batting average (.258) and on base percentage (.319) so far.
