Padres | Yangervis Solarte hitting cleanup

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:12:00 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base and hitting cleanup against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles Thursday, April 23. 3B Will Middlebrooks is taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a very attractive flyer at FantasyScore today in the hear of the San Diego order. The switch hitter is off to a fast start to the season in a utility role, and he hit his second home run of the season last night in a loss. Definitely consider him if you're looking to save money elsewhere.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte hitting second Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:11:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been a spark plug for the Padres in the early going, hitting .355 (11-for-31) with one home run and eight RBI. He's a versatile player, too, and hitting atop the Friars' hot lineup makes him very relevant while facing Kendrick in hitter-friendly Coors Field. He should be a solid daily play tonight at a great price.

Padres | Yonder Alonso sitting out

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:09:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at first base Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is off to a strong start with a .375 batting average and five RBI. Owners on FantasyScore could consider him as a cheaper starting option. Alonso ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko sitting again Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:42:24 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order for the second straight night.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is quickly fizzling after a very disappointing 2014 season. He has just three hits in 21 at-bats (.143) so far with five strikeouts and three double plays. On the flip side, Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has made the most of his opportunities. His ability to put the ball in play often gives him a chance to be productive at FantasyScore with regular playing time in this upgraded offense. You should consider him in your daily lineups tonight to save money elsewhere against Arizona Diamondbacks starter Jeremy Hellickson.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting at 2B

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:39:26 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and hitting second in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Monday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: With Jedd Gyorko starting the season slow at second, Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could see more playing time. Solarte fared much better against lefties (.291) than righties (.243) in 2014, but he did have seven of his 10 homers against right-handers last year. You could do worse than Solarte at FantasyScore as a cheap sleeper option for your infield.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting at keystone

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 15:34:04 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B/2B Yangervis Solarte is batting seventh and playing second base against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Solarte ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) profiles better against left-handed pitchers, but he still makes for a nice source of cap relief with upside for FantasyScore players Wednesday. He is more of a flier than a lineup building block, though.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko sitting out series finale

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 15:23:53 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, April 8. 3B Yangervis Solarte is batting seventh and starting at the keystone position in place of Gyorko.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has sneaky upside in FantasyScore contest with his low cap hit, but he shouldn't be considered a must-play option, either. Make sure to avoid Gyorko in all formats Wednesday.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks third base front-runner

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 12:57:42 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is the favorite to open the season as the starting third baseman. He has not played another position, while 3B Yangervis Solarte has played various infield positions during spring training. The Padres have yet to declare their everyday third basemen, though.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($2,900, 5.8%) fell off the map last season, but at 26, he checks in as a post-hype candidate with power upside worth a late-round flier in deep leagues. His home ballpark will lend no favors, and he is likely only an early-season slump away from losing his starting job. He is having a nice spring, though, with eight runs, two doubles, two home runs and seven RBI with a .333/.350/.538 slash line. So there is upside. With Solarte's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) playing time uncertain, it is difficult to roster him in the majority of formats. However, his positional eligibility could prove to be beneficial in deep leagues if he receives enough at-bats. At this pont, neither player projects as anything more than a low-priced flier in FantasyScore contests.
