Padres | Yangervis Solarte has three-hit game

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 22:38:45 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte had three hits, including a home run, in the win Wednesday, Aug. 19, against the Atlanta Braves. He finished with a run scored and two RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has erupted for a double, two homers and five RBIs over the past two games to re-emerge as a solid short-term FantasyScore option at a mid-level price.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg close to return

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 11:07:26 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg (knee) said he is close to returning from the disabled list and is 7-for-35 with a triple, two steals, two RBI and two runs scored on his minor league rehab assignment in eight games, and he hit leadoff with Class AA San Antonio. He's played both second and third base mainly, and he said that his swing is close to being able to return. However, it's unclear where Spangenberg would play in the majors, since 2B Yangervis Solarte and 2B Jedd Gyorko have been hot lately.

Fantasy Tip: With no clear path to regular playing time, Spangenberg ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) probably won't have a ton of fantasy value when he returns, although he could provide nice depth for owners in deep mixed leagues.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte shakes off HBP

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 19:05:30 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte (ribs) went hitless in three at-bats with a run scored Wednesday, Aug. 12, against the Cincinnati Reds. He did reach on a hit by pitch, and he was able to remain in the game after taking a shot to the ribs.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) dodged a bullet with a hit to the ribs. He has emerged as a useful FantasyScore option at times, but Wednesday he wasn't at his best.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte extends hit streak

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 04:30:44 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a single in the first inning Wednesday, Aug. 5, against the Milwaukee Brewers. It is the longest streak by a Padres player this year and the longest since OF Will Venable's 15-game streak from Aug. 2-18, 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has brought his average up to .269 with this streak, and as with all hitters on a roll he should be in your FantasyScore lineup until the streak comes to an end.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte out of the lineup

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:10:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) plays nearly everyday as a utility man, but he hasn't done much at the dish with a .246/.302/.372 slash line through 308 plate appearances. He should be left to the waiver wire outside NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte dropped to fifth

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 15:49:55 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte will start at third base and hit fifth in the order Thursday, July 23, against the Miami Marlins and RHP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is 5-for-15 with two walks in his last four games. He's hitting .260 against righties for the season, and he can be used for moderate cap relief on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Shawn Tolleson blows first save

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 03:49:08 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Shawn Tolleson blew his first save of the season following 13 successful save conversions. A homer by San Diego Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres a come-from-behind 6-5 victory.

Fantasy Tip: Tolleson has still been more successful in the Rangers bullpen than anyone else in the past couple seasons, so one blown save won't be cause for alarm. Continue playing him on your fantasy roster.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks out again

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 14:26:24 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Will Middlebrooks is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, July 8. 2B Yangervis Solarte is starting at the hot corner and batting cleanup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Charlie Morton.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Middlebrooks continues to struggle at the plate, Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could continue to see regular playing time at third base. Solarte could be a sneaky sleeper/value pick on FantasyScore tonight. He's hitting much better against righties (.260/.310/.383 with three of his four home runs) than against southpaws. Being in a run-producing spot in the lineup makes him more attractive for daily users.

Padres | Yangervis Solarte not starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 12:42:10 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 3B Will Middlebrooks is starting in Solarte's place.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has two homers and a .292 average in the last seven days, but he is likely sitting due to his .167 average against Pirates starter Francisco Liriano. Middlebrooks ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .357 against Pittsburgh but his average against Liriano isn't much better. Look elsewhere for FantasyScore help.

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 20:50:09 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 Monday, July 6, against the Pittsburgh Pirates to extend his hitting streak to seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Solarte ($3,300; or 6.6% of cap) is a solid low-end play in FantasyScore while he is streaking.
