Yangervis Solarte (thumb) is expected back in the Padres' lineup on Monday.

Solarte aggravated a left thumb injury on Saturday. He'll sit out Sunday's game but is expected to be fine. "He’s going to be fine long run," manager Andy Green said. "It’s something where he’s gotten jammed in recent days and he’s got some swelling in there now. After his first at-bat, it just didn’t look like it was going to be productive to keep him out there for the rest of the day."

Yangervis Solarte left Saturday's game against the Rockies with a left thumb contusion.

It looks like he may have aggravated an existing injury as Solarte's hand was wrapped during batting practice. He went 0-for-1 before exiting in the third inning. Adam Rosales replaced him at the hot corner. Solarte is day-to-day.

Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer Monday against the Braves.

The Padres might want to strike while the iron is hot and move Solarte while he's at the peak of his value; he has a .999 OPS in 74 at-bats this year. The Mets, Yankees and Orioles are among the contenders that could use the infield help.
Jun 7 - 2:25 AM

Yangervis Solarte hit a pair of homers to knock in four runs against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

It's the second two-homer game of Solarte's career. The switch-hitter was batting cleanup tonight in his sixth game back from the disabled list. Still, it's probably not enough to make him of use in the typical mixed league.
May 28 - 1:27 AM

Yangervis Solarte ended Saturday's 3-2, 11-inning win over the Dodgers by drawing a bases-loaded walk.

Yes, the classic walk-off walk. Dodgers reliever Chin-Hui Tsao had himself a rough one, walking three after allowing a lead-off single to Wil Meyers to open the bottom of the eleventh. Perhaps a reason for his nervousness around the strike zone: Melvin Upton Jr. almost ended the game with a would-be home run that died on the warning track with one out in the frame. Regardless, Solarte eventually drew the walk to end the game. He probably feels pretty great with this one. He hasn't played since early April, having been done in by a strained hamstring. Last season, the 28-year-old infielder slashed .270/.320/.428 with 33 doubles, four triples, 14 homers and 63 RBI over 526 at-bats. Those in deeper mixed- or NL-only formats, particularly those in need of infield help, should consider scooping Solarte off waivers if he is not already owned.
May 22 - 2:13 AM

Padres activated 3B Yangervis Solarte from the 15-day disabled list.

He missed almost six weeks with a strained hamstring. Solarte isn't starting against the Dodgers on Saturday but he'll be available off the bench. Manager Andy Green said he wants to keep Brett Wallace's bat in the lineup. With Wallace locked in at the hot corner, Solarte might start seeing time at second base.

It's a nice first step for the San Diego third baseman, who's been on the 15-day disabled list since April 10 with a right hamstring strain.
