Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting Sunday

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 12:34:05 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B/3B Yangervis Solarte will play third base and bat fourth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez on Sunday, June 19. INF Adam Rosales will draw a start in place of 2B/3B Ryan Schimpf at second base and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte has cooled considerably since coming off the disabled list in late May and is mired in a 2-for-29 slump over his last 10 games. There is some hope he could break out of that today given he is batting .333 against southpaws this season, but he's going to be a hard sell against Gonzalez. Outside of NL-only or the deepest mixed leagues, feel free to sit both Solarte and Rosales.

Padres | Brett Wallace cleaning up

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 16:17:49 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Brett Wallace is hitting cleanup Saturday, June 18, in place of 3B Yangervis Solarte.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace is hitting just .154 and has done very little this year. He's still worth consideration in the cleanup spot, but he's facing Max Scherzer. He's a shot in the dark in DFS.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte cleaning up

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:13:59 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is hitting cleanup Wednesday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte has nearly identical production against left-handers as he does against right-handers in less than half of the at-bats. He's a solid low-end option against Justin Nicolino today.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte, Brett Wallace out

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 16:18:05 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (thumb) and 3B Brett Wallace are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Tuesday, June 14. 3B Ryan Schimpf will start at third base and is batting sixth, while SS Alexi Amarista will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Schimpf was hitting .355 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI with Class AAA El Paso when he was recalled by the Padres. He should be an option in NL-only leagues if he receives solid playing time. Owners in deeper mixed leagues and daily fantasy leagues should keep an eye on him. Amarista should be a decent option in NL-only leagues but is not a strong option in most leagues.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte improving

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 19:04:59 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (thumb) was able to pinch-hit in the ninth inning against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, June 12, and manager Andy Green said Solarte is feeling good.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte should be back in the starting lineup in the next game or two, so stay tuned for updates and be ready to plug him back into your lineup.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte out with injury

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 11:51:43 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (thumb) is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson Sunday, June 12. 2B Adam Rosales will start at second base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should keep an eye out on the situation to see when Solarte will be able to play again. Rosales has not received a lot of playing time recently but does have six hits and four RBI over the last six games. Rosales should have some value in daily fantasy leagues and could be a starting candidate for some desperate owners.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte expected to play Monday

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 07:38:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (thumb) is expected to return to the starting lineup Monday, June 13, according to manager Andy Green. He suffered a left thumb contusion during the fourth inning of the game against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Solarte is affected more by the injury when he is swinging left-handed but it is not considered to be a serious issue. INF Brent Wallace is the most likely candidate to see playing time at the hot corner in his absence but he is not a great option for DFS.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte injures thumb

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 19:34:48 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte (thumb) exited in the fourth inning against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, June 11, with a bruised left thumb, but manager Andy Green said Solarte would be fine.

Fantasy Tip: Despite Green downplaying the injury, make sure to check Solarte's status going forward to make sure he doesn't miss another game or two.

Padres | Brett Wallace not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 10:43:10 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Brett Wallace is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood Saturday, June 11. INF Yangervis Solarte will bat cleanup and play the hot corner, while INF Alexi Amarista will bat eighth and start at second base.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte has just three hits in 17 at-bats over the past week but is batting .371 on the road this season and .313 versus Colorado pitching, so he's worth considering as a flier in daily fantasy games this afternoon. Amarista is 5-for-12 at the plate in June but should only be used if you're in desperate need of salary cap relief.
