Amarista concluded the regular season with a .238/.269/.351 slash line.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old never carved out a huge role for the Rockies, as he remained a mere bench piece even when injuries struck Colorado's regulars. His positional versatility is a boon to his real-life value, but his fantasy value is severely capped while he's limited to infrequent pinch hit appearances. He also wasn't afforded many chances to run in 2017, as he attempted just one stolen base all year. Amarista's contract has a club option for 2018, so his value could rebound if a change of scenery takes place.

Amarista went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Wednesday's win over Cleveland.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista's positional flexibility has provided him an opportunity to carve out a utility role, but he's still not receiving consistent starts. Additionally, his .248/.275/.380 slash line isn't moving the fantasy needle in most settings. Amarista is definitely worth considering as a low-priced flier in daily contests when he's in the starting lineup for home games, though.

Amarista has a .145/.190/.200 slash line in 59 plate appearances since the start of June.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista was slashing .338/.348/.480 through the first two months of the season, but has since fallen off considerably. The regression isn't altogether surprising given the 28-year-old's sub-par career numbers at the plate. Versatility remains Amarista's greatest asset by far, as he has seen time at every position besides first base, pitcher, and catcher this season.

Amarista is not in the lineup Thursday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista has filled in as the primary second baseman the past two days while Dj LeMahieu was sidelined with a groin injury, although "The Little Ninja" failed to capitalize on his expanded opportunities. The utility man has just one hit in his last 22 at-bats (.045 batting average) and struck out six times in that span. Despite his recent struggles, he still possesses a .659 OPS on the season, which is one of the best marks of his career in that category. With LeMahieu back in action and the rest of the Rockies' infield in good health, Amarista will settle back into a super utility role off the bench for the foreseeable future.

Amarista (personal) was activated off the paternity list Thursday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Little Ninja ended up missing two days of action while attending to the birth of his daughter. Now that he's back on the roster, Amarista will resume his normal role as a super-utility player off the Rockies' bench. Jordan Patterson was sent back to Triple-A to make room for him on the active roster.

Amarista was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista is away from the team to attend to the birth of his baby girl, so he'll be away from the team for 1-to-3 days. Raimel Tapia was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to fill the vacant roster spot.

Amarista is batting seventh and playing second base Thursday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The infielder had been splitting starts at shortstop in the week or so before Trevor Story returned from the disabled list, and Amarista squeezes out another start with DJ LeMahieu taking a breather.

Amarista is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies, Ben Harris of Phillies.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Amarista and Pat Valaika had been splitting duties at shortstop following Trevor Story's placement on the disabled list earlier in May, but both will lose out on consistent at-bats with Story making his return to the lineup Wednesday. Of the two utility infielders, Amarista likely has a better chance than Valaika to stick around as a reserve option. Amarista has been stellar at the plate when called upon this season, hitting .379 with two homers and 13 RBI in 59 plate appearances.

Amarista is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After starting the last two games and amassing five hits -- three for extra bases -- and six RBI, Amarista seems to have emerged as manager Bud Black's preferred option at shortstop while Trevor Story (shoulder) has been sidelined. Amarista will give way to Pat Valaika on Sunday, but looks like the better bet of the two players to stick around when Story is activated from the disabled list, perhaps in the coming days.

Amarista went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Friday's 12-6 win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

The super-utility player is making quite an impression with the Rockies, as he's now raised his slash line one the season to .341/.356/.568 through 45 plate appearances. It's reasonable to believe that the lifetime .233 hitter is due for some regression back towards his career norms, but the Rockies should give him more plate appearances for as long as his bat stays hot.
