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 was activated from the disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista was on the shelf since late April with a hamstring injury, but it seems he's back to full health after going 2-for-5 in a rehab game Tuesday. He should slot back into a starting role for the Padres fairly soon considering the barrage of injuries San Diego has been hit with lately. To make room for him on the active roster, right-hander Tayron Guerrero was optioned to Triple-A El Paso.

Amarista (hamstring) is slated to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

After nearly a month on the shelf with a strained right hamstring, Amarista is ready to return to active competition. It's not clear how long he'll remain in the minors, but Amarista could play fairly regularly upon activation, until Cory Spangenberg (quad) returns to second base.

Amarista (hamstring) has played two games in extended spring training, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports.

EDGE Analysis

The last news on Amarista was that he was not close to returning, back on April 29, so the fact that he is getting into games at extended spring training is a good sign. There is still no official timetable for Amarista' return, but the Padres could use all the healthy bodies they can get, as seemingly half the infield is on the disabled list.
