Padres | Yangervis Solarte out of the lineup

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:10:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) plays nearly everyday as a utility man, but he hasn't done much at the dish with a .246/.302/.372 slash line through 308 plate appearances. He should be left to the waiver wire outside NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte dropped to fifth

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 15:49:55 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte will start at third base and hit fifth in the order Thursday, July 23, against the Miami Marlins and RHP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 5-for-15 with two walks in his last four games. He's hitting .260 against righties for the season, and he can be used for moderate cap relief on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Shawn Tolleson blows first save

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 03:49:08 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Shawn Tolleson blew his first save of the season following 13 successful save conversions. A homer by San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres a come-from-behind 6-5 victory.

Fantasy Tip: Tolleson has still been more successful in the Rangers bullpen than anyone else in the past couple seasons, so one blown save won't be cause for alarm. Continue playing him on your fantasy roster.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks out again

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 14:26:24 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at the hot corner and batting cleanup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Middlebrooks continues to struggle at the plate, Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could continue to see regular playing time at third base. Solarte could be a sneaky sleeper/value pick on FantasyScore tonight. He's hitting much better against righties (.260/.310/.383 with three of his four home runs) than against southpaws. Being in a run-producing spot in the lineup makes him more attractive for daily users.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte not starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 12:42:10 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 3B Will Middlebrooks is starting in Solarte's place.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has two homers and a .292 average in the last seven days, but he is likely sitting due to his .167 average against Pirates starter Francisco Liriano. Middlebrooks ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .357 against Pittsburgh but his average against Liriano isn't much better. Look elsewhere for FantasyScore help.

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 20:50:09 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 Monday, July 6, against the Pittsburgh Pirates to extend his hitting streak to seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300; or 6.6% of cap) is a solid low-end play in FantasyScore while he is streaking.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks remains out

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:10:47 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6, and 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base. Solarte is batting second against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 11-for-31 over his past nine games with five runs, seven extra-base hits, four RBI and a 1.136 OPS. Still, he is a risky start against Burnett. Middlebrooks ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been limited to pinch-hit duty since leaving the game early Friday, June 26.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks remains out

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:34:30 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Sunday, July 5. 2B Yangervis Solarte will start at third base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) continues to be sidelined with an ankle injury and his return date is uncertain. Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has picked at least one hit in seven of his last eight games with two home runs and four RBI in that span. He could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks remains out

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:43:44 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks (ankle) is sitting out his second straight game Wednesday, July 1. 2B Yangervis Solarte will start at the hot corner again and is hitting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) recorded the team's only hit last night, but he has come back down to earth after a hot start to the season and hit only .206 (13-for-63) with no home runs and four RBI in June. He's one to avoid against the hot Walker.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte playing second

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:50:16 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Yangervis Solarte will start at second base against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is starting at the keystone position because INF Cory Spangenberg (knee) is sidelined due to a sprained left knee. He is 2-for-8 against Anderson in his career and is worthy of consideration in FantasyScore because he is faring much better against righties.
