Padres | Yangervis Solarte leading off

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:13:54 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at first base and batting leadoff against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: While typically Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) leading off would make him a plus-option, opposing pitcher Zack Greinke has been stingy. Plus, Solarte is just 6-for-30 with a .506 OPS dating back to Sunday, May 10. FantasyScore players should view Solarte as a contrarian flier Friday.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks continues to sit

Fri, 08 May 2015 17:00:13 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks remains out of the lineup Friday, May 8. 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base and hitting fifth in the batting order against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks last started on Tuesday, but he has gone hitless in his last 21 plate appearances with three strikeouts to drop his season average to below .200. He's quickly losing playing time to Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap), who is off to a good start and makes much more contact. Solarte has a slash line of .350/.409/.533 with both of his home runs and 16 RBI against righties this year, making him a great value play at FantasyScore Friday night.

Padres | Yonder Alonso to have MRI

Fri, 08 May 2015 06:47:56 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso (shoulder) will have an MRI on his injured right shoulder Friday, May 8, and will miss at least one game. Alonso left the game Thursday, May 7, after a diving attempt in the field. Alonso was hit by a pitch in the same area and was forced to miss a couple of games last week due to soreness. Alonso won't play Friday, and 2B Yangervis Solarte will take his place.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of your cap) should already be on your radar as the utility man has a .300-2-17 line thus far. He's playing just about everyday anyway, so look to him as a low-end 2B option on FantasyScore.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting vs. Arizona

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:46:42 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base and batting fifth against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is thriving in the RBI department with 17 on the season. At his cap hit, he is a nice FantasyScore option when in the lineup. For seasonal players, Solarte's multiple-position eligibility and solid batting average (.299) hold value in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks out again

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:39:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is not in the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, May 7. 2B Yangervis Solarte is batting fifth and playing third base Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks' ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) average has dipped below .200, as he is currently in a 1-for-27 slide. Fantasy players in all formats will want to avoid him until he shows some life at the plate. Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has 17 RBI on the season with a .299/.357/.429 slash line, and he is an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. Solarte is also garnering more value in deep mixed and NL-only leagues, especially with his eligibility at multiple positions.

Padres | Yonder Alonso off vs. tough lefty

Mon, 04 May 2015 16:41:06 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4. 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at first base and hitting fifth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has had a fine season early in 2015. However, you'll likely want to avoid him at FantasyScore against Bumgarner. Solarte has done most of his damage this year hitting left-handed, which he won't do tonight. Right-handed, he's hitting only .118 (2-for-17) with one RBI.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko in lineup

Sat, 02 May 2015 16:23:14 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko is in the lineup Saturday, May 2, against the Colorado Rockies and SP Jorge De La Rosa. Gyorko will play second base with 3B Yangervis Solarte going to first base and 1B Yonder Alonso out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has started 2015 with a pitiful .135 batting average but will get the start against a lefty due to his career .255 average against southpaws. Until Gyorko starts showing some signs of promise in 2015, he should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting again

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:20:12 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base again and hitting second in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Eddie Butler Friday, May 1. 2B Jedd Gyorko is on the bench yet again.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Solarte ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has become the Padres' starting second baseman over the struggling Gyorko. Gyorko shouldn't be held in shallow mixed leagues, and Solarte is worth an addition in those same formats. In daily games such as FantasyScore, Solarte continues to be an acceptable second base play, especially while hitting at the top of the lineup.

Padres | Yonder Alonso resting

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 11:09:41 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is taking the day off Wednesday, April 29. 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at first base and hitting second in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,800, 5.5% of cap) has likely been a popular FantasyScore selection of late, as he has gained frequent playing time over Jedd Gyorko at second base, and Solarte is hitting .321 (9-for-28) with two home runs and seven RBI since April 19. However, he's hitting only .200 (2-for-10) with one RBI against southpaws this year, and Keuchel has been very impressive in 2015. Stay away from Solarte today.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte starting again

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:29:37 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting again at second base and is hitting second in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Roberto Hernandez Tuesday, April 28. 2B Jedd Gyorko remains on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) continues to steal playing time from the slumping Gyorko. Solarte has proved valuable for the Friars in 2015, hitting .320 (16-for-50) with two home runs and 11 RBI. He's done most of his damage hitting from the left side, too (.350, two homers, 10 RBI), making him a great value play at FantasyScore tonight.
