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.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte staying hot

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:49:45 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte was 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI Monday, April 27, and he's batting .326 (14-for-43) when he's starting this year with four doubles, two home runs and nine RBI. Seven of his starts have come at second base against right-handers. However, he's also hitting .350 (14-for-40) against lefties. 2B Jedd Gyorko is batting only .054 (2-for-37) against righties with nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) continues to steal playing time from the struggling Gyorko, and if he continues to play often, he'll have mixed league utility. He's even more valuable with multi-position eligibility in fantasy leagues. If he starts tonight against Houston Astros starter Roberto Hernandez, he should be considered a fine value play at FantasyScore.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte hitting cleanup

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:12:00 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at third base and hitting cleanup against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles Thursday, April 23. 3B Will Middlebrooks is taking the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a very attractive flyer at FantasyScore today in the hear of the San Diego order. The switch hitter is off to a fast start to the season in a utility role, and he hit his second home run of the season last night in a loss. Definitely consider him if you're looking to save money elsewhere.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte hitting second Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 14:11:07 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been a spark plug for the Padres in the early going, hitting .355 (11-for-31) with one home run and eight RBI. He's a versatile player, too, and hitting atop the Friars' hot lineup makes him very relevant while facing Kendrick in hitter-friendly Coors Field. He should be a solid daily play tonight at a great price.

Padres | Yonder Alonso sitting out

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:09:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at first base Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is off to a strong start with a .375 batting average and five RBI. Owners on FantasyScore could consider him as a cheaper starting option. Alonso ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game.

Padres | Jedd Gyorko sitting again Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:42:24 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. 3B Yangervis Solarte is starting at second base and hitting second in the batting order for the second straight night.

Fantasy Tip: Gyorko ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is quickly fizzling after a very disappointing 2014 season. He has just three hits in 21 at-bats (.143) so far with five strikeouts and three double plays. On the flip side, Solarte ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has made the most of his opportunities. His ability to put the ball in play often gives him a chance to be productive at FantasyScore with regular playing time in this upgraded offense. You should consider him in your daily lineups tonight to save money elsewhere against Arizona Diamondbacks starter Jeremy Hellickson.
