San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is batting leadoff Tuesday, Aug. 12, against the Colorado Rockies. OF Rymer Liriano is hitting fifth, after batting seventh in his major league debut Monday, Aug. 11.
Fantasy Tip: Solarte is a viable option in the majority of leagues. He is eligible at a number of positions and hitting well since joining the Padres. Liriano should be owned in NL-only leagues, and he is worth a flier in deep mixed leagues, especially if you're looking for stolen bases.

San Diego Padres INF Yangervis Solarte is batting second and playing second base Thursday, July 24, against the Chicago Cubs.
Fantasy Tip: Solarte could take care of the keystone position until Jedd Gyorko returns from his foot injury, and then move to third base. He could also fill a utility role around the diamond and in the outfield. Regardless, Solarte will get enough playing time to be a factor in NL-only formats. Mixed leaguers should take a wait-and-see approach.
