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.

The New York Yankees acquired 3B Chase Headley from the San Diego Padres in exchange for INF Yangervis Solarte and SP Rafael De Paula. San Diego also will send $1 million to New York.
Fantasy Tip: This is a big move for Headley, who becomes a top crossover FAAB candidate for AL-only players. He's rebounded a bit of late, and moving to the Bronx, a hitter's haven, should bode well for the rest of his second half. Solarte can be added in NL-only games but doesn't hold much upside, especially at PETCO Park. De Paula is a prospect to watch in the coming years but not necessarily stashable outside of full-team dynasty formats.

The New York Yankees have placed OF Carlos Beltran (concussion) on the seven-day disabled list because of a concussion. The team also recalled 3B Yangervis Solarte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known how long Beltran will be sidelined, so owners should look to stash him on their bench for now. Solarte could receive playing time at third base and designated hitter while he is up with the team and could be a short-term option if available in AL-only or deeper mixed leagues.

New York Yankees 3B Yangervis Solarte is hitting .183 since May 15 and has started to lose playing time to 3B Kelly Johnson.
Fantasy Tip: Solarte was a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners through the first month and half of the season, but he is crashing back down to earth in a big way. The ride was good while it lasted, but it could be time to cut ties with Solarte
