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.

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.

Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.

Solarte suffered a strained hamstring just a week into the season and has been on the shelf ever since. His rehab has been progressing, though, and he began playing in extended spring training games on May 14. Next up, the rehab assignment. Solarte could be activated as early as this weekend. If that doesn't come to pass, he will almost certainly be activated next week barring a medical setback.

Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) has begun playing extended spring training games.

It's been a month since Solarte strained his hamstring so it's good to finally see some progress. He's close to beginning a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore. With Solarte and Alex Amarista (hamstring) both out, Brett Wallace has taken over as the Padres' starting third baseman.
May 14 - 8:15 PM

Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) has begun running on an anti-gravity treadmill.

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. Solarte is already eligible for activation, but it's going to be probably another two weeks before he is back to playing in games for the Padres. He'll likely require a minor league rehab assignment.
Apr 26 - 10:57 PM

Padres placed 3B Yangervis Solarte on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Solarte suffered the injury during Saturday's game. The Padres figure to go with a combination of Adam Rosales and Alexi Amarista at third base while Solarte is on the shelf.
Apr 10 - 1:04 PM

Yangervis Solarte (hamstring) is not in the Padres' lineup on Sunday.

Solarte had to exit Saturday's game with a strained right hamstring. It's unclear at this point whether he might require a stint on the disabled list. Adam Rosales is filling in at third base Sunday. The Padres also have Christian Bethancourt at catcher instead of Derek Norris.

Yangervis Solarte left Saturday's game against the Rockies with a strained right hamstring.

He came out after hitting a fourth-inning single. Adam Rosales ran for him and took over at third base. The team could look to call up Triple-A infielder Alexi Amarista if Solarte lands on the disabled list. Mike Olt and Jemile Weeks are also possibilities, though neither of them are on the 40-man roster.
Apr 9 - 10:30 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-4 and hit his 14th homer Thursday versus the Brewers.

With a .274 average and a .760 OPS, Solarte has played well enough this year to justify a starting job next season, though he probably doesn't have any additional upside. It remains to be seen whether the Padres will just turn over third base to him and leave him alone or if they'll bring in more competition. If they add a second baseman or a shortstop, then Jedd Gyorko and/or Cory Spangenberg would be part of the mix at third, too.

Yangervis Solarte finished with a huge game in Thursday's 10-7 win over the Dodgers, going 4-for-5 with a solo home run, two doubles and three runs scored.

Tight effort by Solarte, who played a key role in the Padres' come-from-behind win. He cracked a solo homer in the seventh to draw his team to within 7-6, then finished off the night's scoring with an RBI double in a four-run eighth. The strong performance boosted the 28-year-old infielder's season triple-slash to .267/.321/.428. He's also hit 12 homers and driven in 55. This is the first season in which Solarte's seen more than 252 at-bats.
