Padres | Power surge for Yangervis Solarte

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 19:57:40 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in a 6-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, July 21, and he has hit six of his 10 home runs this month.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte's average has been rock solid all year, and he is worth a look in deeper mixed formats in case his power continues to trend upward.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte tallies five RBI

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 22:22:19 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte was 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and five RBI against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday, July 5.

Fantasy Tip: If we may channel our inner Dan Patrick, Solarte has been "en fuego" recently, going 19-for-42 (.452) with three home runs, 10 RBI and nine runs scored over his last 11 games. He's up to .308-7-32 in 156 ABs for the year and is someone worth owning in deeper mixed leagues.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte likes facing Arizona

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 15:03:13 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte has hit safely in each of his last seven starts against the Arizona Diamondbacks, who he faces Tuesday, July 5. His four home runs at Chase Field are more than he's hit in any other visiting park. OF Matt Kemp has 33 career home runs against the D-backs, which is second most among active players.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Solarte hot against Arizona, he's hitting .408 (20-for-49) with two home runs and eight RBI in 14 games since June 18. Solarte typically provides mediocre numbers across all categories, but while he's hot you should run with him in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte has four hits

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 22:50:49 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte tied a career high with four hits Sunday, July 3, in a 6-3 loss to the New York Yankees. Solarte is hitting .301 this year, with a slugging percentage of .483.

Fantasy Tip: It took a while for the light bulb to go on in terms of putting his bat to good use, but once the light shined Solarte's bat started to get red-hot. You should play Solarte in all fantasy formats.

Padres | Brett Wallace draws into lineup

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:23:56 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Brett Wallace is starting at third base and is hitting fifth against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo Wednesday, June 29. 3B Yangervis Solarte moves over to second base.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace does have some pop in his lumber, but he's hitting just .211 on the season with four home runs and 11 RBI in 142 at-bats. However, Wallace is hitting .429 (9-for-21) with a home run and RBI in 21 career at-bats against Gallardo. Every way you slice it, Wallace is a deep sleeper pick in daily setups.

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 | Thumb costs Yangervis Solarte time

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 22:56:03 -0700

San Diego Padres INF Yangervis Solarte (thumb) was held out of the lineup Saturday, June 18, against the Washington Nationals, as manager Andy Green said he thinks Solarte's swing is being affected by a bruised thumb.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to keep Solarte reserved until he can officially return and prove his health in at least two full games without any setbacks.

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.
