Padres | Yangervis Solarte heating up

Fri, 27 May 2016 23:01:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte clubbed a pair of two-run home runs in the team's 10-3 shellacking of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, May 27. He now has four extra-base hits, including three homers, in his last two games.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte, who returned last Saturday after six weeks on the DL due to a hamstring injury, is 5-for-12 with three home runs and six RBI in the last two-plus games after an initial 0-for-10 stretch following his activation. He's a capable hitter that brings additional value to fantasy rosters by being able to cover multiple positions. Scoop him up for depth.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte at second base

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:33:40 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and is hitting cleanup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Friday, May 27. 2B Alexi Amarista will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte should be a lineup regular for SD now that he's healthy, and his multipositional eligibility makes him a decent depth piece in deep mixed and NL-only universes. Hitting cleanup tonight against a lefty also makes him an attractive value pick in daily games.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte in two-hole

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:40:08 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base and is hitting second against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte had a career year with San Diego last year with 14 home runs, 63 RBI and a .270 average. His year got off to a bad start when he hit the DL early in April, but he should play frequently for San Diego and offers those in deeper leagues a steady presence in the middle infield with multiposition eligibility.

Padres | Wil Myers sitting out

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:51:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers (wrist, forearm) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. He clutched his left wrist/forearm in the game Monday, May 23. 1B Brett Wallace is starting at first base and hitting sixth against San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija. 3B Yangervis Solarte is at third base and is batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Myers owners need to play close attention to this, as wrist issues ended his season prematurely in 2015. He's only hit .218 with two home runs and seven RBI in May, too, so perhaps there's more to his struggles. Wallace and Solarte are rather weak four and five hitters but could have an opportunity to drive in runs. At best, though, they're midrange daily picks against Samardzija in a pitcher-friendly park.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte not playing

Mon, 23 May 2016 15:53:33 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 23. 1B Brett Wallace is starting at third base and is batting cleanup against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte likely will move back and forth between second and third base now that he's back from the DL. He can contribute modestly across several categories after a solid season in San Diego in 2015. His multipositional eligibility plays well as depth in cavernous mixed and NL-only universes, too. Wallace has a .333 career average in 15 at-bats against Cueto and is a deep sleeper pick this evening.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte batting cleanup

Sun, 22 May 2016 12:57:45 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B/3B Yangervis Solarte will make his first start since April 9 against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda on Sunday, May 22, starting at second base and batting fourth. His return to the lineup will bump OF Melvin Upton to fifth in the order, while 3B Brett Wallace drops down to sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte drew a walk-off walk in the 11th inning of Saturday's win after missing more than a month with a strained hamstring. The Padres like batting the 28-year-old Venezuelan in the heart of the order, and he is eligible at second base in most leagues, making him a worthy waiver-wire add in all leagues in which he isn't already owned. Solarte isn't a great DFS play today given the matchup, but he will be down the road if he continues to bat cleanup.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte activated from DL

Sat, 21 May 2016 17:21:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) was activated from the disabled list Saturday, May 21. In a corresponding move, 2B Jose Pirela was optioned to Class AAA El Paso.

Fantasy Tip: In the majority of mixed leagues, Solarte is a low-end option. He has some positional flexibility and modest pop, though, so he can help in a pinch. But it is likely still best to leave him to cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. Since joining the Friars, he has a .271/.328/.403 slash line.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte going on rehab assignment

Wed, 18 May 2016 16:49:35 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) will start a rehab assignment with Class AAA El Paso, and he could be activated from the disabled list over the weekend or early next week.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte had played in only five games before he was injured, but he had six hits (three doubles) in his 16 at-bats. That's after he had a fine year slashing .270/.320/.428 with 14 home runs and 63 RBI in 2015 for the Friars. He can provide decent production across the board minus the stolen base column as corner infield depth in deeper leagues. If your leaguemates forgot about him, give him a look with his return imminent.

Padres | Rehab updates for Friars

Tue, 17 May 2016 17:11:40 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Alexi Amarista (hamstring) is playing second base and leading off for Class AA San Antonio to start his rehab assignment Tuesday, May 17. 3B Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) played seven innings in an extended spring training game Monday, May 16, and he's slightly behind Amarista. 2B Cory Spangenberg (quadriceps) had a setback while trying to run two weeks ago for the first time. He hasn't run since or participated in any baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like none of this trio will be ready to return for at least another week or two. Amarista is more of a utility player at the big league level. Solarte and Spangenberg were in starting roles when they were injured. Solarte can contribute modestly across the board but doesn't have much upside, while Spangenberg is mainly attractive in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues for his wheels.
