San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (oblique) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 14. INF Chris Nelson is starting at the hot corner.
Fantasy Tip: Solarte needs to be removed from any of your daily starting lineups. He suffered a mild oblique injury Wednesday, and he should be considered day-to-day for now. However, oblique injuries usually land players on the DL, so prepare for a lengthy absence.

San Diego Padres 3B Chris Nelson was recalled from the minors Friday, July 18.

The Cincinnati Reds could break camp without a shortstop to back up SS Zack Cozart. INF Ramon Santiago is a candidate as a backup shortstop, but he is no lock to make the team, nor is INF Chris Nelson. 3B Todd Frazier was drafted as a shortstop, and he could be used to fill in. OF Billy Hamilton has also played 312 minor league games at shortstop, and manager Bryan Price acknowledged Hamilton could see time there if needed.
