Yangervis Solarte connected in crunch time, swatting a walk-off solo homer to beat the Dodgers 6-5 on Saturday.

He took ace reliever Pedro Baez over the right field wall with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning to end the game in style. It was Solarte's only hit of the night in five chances. The multi-position infielder missed a month with an oblique injury and is batting .257/.327/.418 with 15 homers and 54 RBI for the season.

Yangervis Solarte had a monster night at the dish Tuesday in St. Louis, homering and doubling twice as part of a six-RBI showing.

Solarte got the scoring going with a bases-clearing double in the third inning off of Lance Lynn, and he got to Lynn again in the fifth with another RBI double. The infielder capped off his night with a mammoth two-run blast off of Josh Lucas in the eighth that went an estimated 455 feet. Solarte has gone deep in two of his last three contests.

Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

Solarte struck for a two-run home run off Stephen Strasburg in the first inning. The 30-year-old infielder owns a .268/.342/.427 triple-slash with 13 homers and 47 RBI across 90 games played. His tater on Saturday was his first since August 8.

Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI during a 7-3 win over the Reds on Tuesday.

He drove in a run with a groundout in the first inning, then cracked a two-run homer off reliever Drew Storen in the seventh. He spent more than a month on the disabled list with an oblique injury before returning last week. He has a .268 batting average with 12 home runs and 44 RBI in 79 games. His positional flexibility gives him extra value in fantasy leagues.

Padres activated INF Yangervis Solarte from the 10-day disabled list.

Solarte missed nearly five weeks of action with a strained oblique. He's starting at third base Sunday and played some shortstop on his rehab assignment, as the Padres are expected to audition him to contenders as a potential super utility player.
Jul 30 - 1:42 PM

Padres manager Andy Green confirmed Yangervis Solarte (oblique) and Austin Hedges (concussion) will be activated from the disabled list Sunday against the Pirates.

Hedges is back from his concussion while Solarte's strained oblique has finally subsided. Solarte went 2-for-7 during his two-game rehab stint with Triple-A El Paso while Hedges went 0-for-3 in his lone appearance in the Arizona League. With Carlos Asuaje excelling at second base, Solarte is likely to get reps at shortstop.
Jul 29 - 7:34 PM

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune said teams will "monitor" Yangervis Solarte's minor league rehab assignment.

This would suggest that teams are interested in Solarte, though Lin cautions that the Padres aren't shopping him. With Carlos Asuaje playing so well at second base, Solarte is expected to get some reps at shortstop during his rehab assignment. The 30-year-old has hit .268 with 10 homers and 40 RBI over 254 at-bats for the Friars this year.
Jul 27 - 7:03 PM

Yangervis Solarte (oblique) is set to begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A El Paso.

Solarte has been on the disabled list for five weeks with a right oblique strain, so he might remain in the minors through the weekend to get his timing right at the plate. Unless the Padres want to showcase him for a possible trade ahead of Monday's deadline. The 30-year-old infielder was batting .268/.349/.425 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI through 71 games this season for San Diego.
Jul 27 - 9:15 AM

Yangervis Solarte (oblique) has yet to resume taking batting practice from the right side of the plate.

He's taken right-handed swings in the cage but has yet to progress to BP from that side. It's possible Solarte could begin a rehab assignment by swinging only left-handed. "I personally want to see him free of any kind of issues whatsoever before we start," Padres manager Andy Green said. "Hopefully he checks that box and we’re able to get him out sometime soon."
Jul 21 - 3:21 PM

Yangervis Solarte (oblique) has begun taking swings from the left side of the plate.

He can't swing righty yet, but the hope is that the switch-hitter is ready to begin a rehab assignment shortly after the All-Star break. Solarte has missed nearly three weeks with a right oblique strain.
Jul 9 - 12:20 PM

Padres placed INF Yangervis Solarte on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to June 21 with a right oblique strain.

It weakens an already feeble Padres offense. Jose Pirela should handle the bulk of the second base duties, with Chase d'Arnaud and Carlos Asuaje also in the mix.
Jun 23 - 5:28 PM

Yangervis Solarte will be placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.

Solarte suffered the injury on a right-handed swing during pregame batting practice Tuesday and had to be scratched from the Padres' starting lineup, with Chase d'Arnaud filling in at second base. This injury comes with unfortunate timing for Solarte, who was batting .317/.394/.667 with seven home runs and 15 RBI in 16 games this month. Ryan Schimpf or Carlos Asuaje will be called up to give the Friars much-needed infield depth.
Jun 20 - 11:12 PM

Yangervis Solarte was scratched from the Padres' lineup Tuesday due to a strained right oblique.

And the hot-hitting infielder is probably going to be placed on the 10-day disabled list. Chase d'Arnaud is now starting at second base Tuesday versus the Cubs.
Jun 20 - 8:23 PM

Yangervis Solarte yanked a pair of home runs during a 7-5, extra-inning win over the Brewers on Saturday.

He took Chase Anderson deep for a solo shot in the second inning. It looked like he would be the hero after punching a two-run shot in the top of the tenth inning off reliever Carlos Torres, but the Brewers hit a two-run bomb of their own in the bottom of the inning to keep the game going. Solarte has a .264 batting average with nine homers, 27 runs and 39 RBI in 280 plate appearances.
