Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Mets.
Solarte's run-scoring base knock in the top of the ninth merely served cosmetic effect in the 5-1 defeat. He drove in a run in each of the final two games of the weekend series, also homering on Saturday. For the season, the 29-year-old third-baseman is slashing .287/.353/.489 with 18 doubles, 12 homers and 49 RBI over 268 at-bats. Aug 14 - 4:15 PM

Yangervis Solarte hit his 12th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Solarte ended Jacob deGrom's shutout in the seventh inning, also tying the game at 1-1. After a solid first year with the Padres in 2015, Solarte is enjoying another strong campaign this year, batting .288/.354/.492 with 49 RBI and 39 runs scored. If not for a hamstring strain that cost him over a month, Solarte would be a lock for a career year in 2016.
Aug 13 - 11:56 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-4 with three RBI and scored a run on Saturday.

All of the hits were singles, but two of them drove in runs. He has been very productive at the plate but has not gotten enough playing time to help out much in fantasy leagues. He is batting .298/.363/.506 with 11 home runs and 48 RBI in 245 at-bats.
Aug 7 - 1:05 AM

Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer, three total RBI and four runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Brewers.

Solarte drove in his first run with a modest RBI fielder's choice in the first inning. He would -- with less modesty -- launch a two-run home run off Jhan Marinez in the sixth inning. He also notched a double in the contest. For the season, Solarte is slashing .294/.356/.508 with 11 homers and 45 RBI over 238 at-bats.

In addition, the 29-year-old third baseman is slashing .293/.357/.498 with 17 doubles and 10 homers over 229 at-bats. He has notched at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games played.
Aug 2 - 2:01 AM

Padres placed 3B Yangervis Solarte on the family medical emergency leave list.

Jul 27 - 10:13 AM

Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-4 with a home run in a loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

Solarte hit a solo dong in the eighth inning, his 10th homer of the year. He finished the proverbial triple shy of the cycle in the game. Amidst a down year for the Padres, the 29-year-old Solarte is having a quietly good season, batting .297/.366/.530 with 39 RBI and 27 runs scored in 56 games.
Jul 21 - 11:49 PM

Yangervis Solarte jacked a two-run homer against the Dodgers on Saturday.

It was his only hit of the game, and one of only three the Padres could muster all night. Solarte is now hitting .302/.382/.527 in 169 at-bats this season. Those are great rates but he just doesn't get enough playing time to be a valuable fantasy commodity.
Jul 9 - 10:09 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer and five RBI as the Padres crushed the Diamondbacks 13-6 on Wednesday.

It's Solarte's first five-RBI game as a major leaguer. He'll be excellent trade bait for the Padres this month with his .308 average, .909 OPS and minimum salary (he's not going to be eligible for free agency until after 2019). The team, though, has no reason to move him unless it brings a couple of strong prospects.
Jul 7 - 1:18 AM

Yangervis Solarte clobbered his fifth home run of the season as the Padres fell to the Yankees in San Diego on Sunday.

His solo shot off of Yankees starter Chad Green tied the game at 1-1 in the second inning, but would wind up being the extent of the Padres offense until they tacked on a pair in the ninth inning. He finished the afternoon 4-for-4 with a double and two runs scored and is now hitting .301/.387/.483 with 24 RBI on the season.
Jul 3 - 8:03 PM

Jun 15 - 1:01 PM

Yangervis Solarte (thumb) is in Monday's lineup versus the Marlins.

Solarte was limited to pinch-hitting duties on Sunday after he aggravated a left thumb injury on Saturday, but it's not a major concern. He's batting cleanup against Wei-Yin Chen on Monday.
Jun 13 - 4:54 PM

Yangervis Solarte grounded out as a pinch hitter in the Padres' loss to the Rockies on Sunday.

Solarte's soft roller to short in the bottom of the ninth inning ended the game at 2-1. He was held out of the Padres' starting lineup Sunday after aggravating a left thumb injury on Saturday. The third baseman should be fine to return to full-time duties on Monday.
Jun 13 - 8:54 AM

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."
