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.
