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.

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

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.

Yangervis Solarte finished 4-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored Wednesday against the Mets.

Solarte is playing fairly regularly with Will Middlebrooks in the minors and Cory Spangenberg on the DH, and he's hit well this month, batting .284 with three homers in 74 at-bats. There's no mixed-league value here at all, but he's giving the Padres a lift.

Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk and three runs scored Saturday as the Padres topped the Rangers 6-5.

Solarte's two-run homer off Shawn Tolleson in the top of the ninth was the big blow. It was his fifth long ball, three of which have come since the beginning of July. The Padres have been perfectly willing to go with the hot hand in the infield, so it looks like Solarte will play pretty regularly until he cools off.

Yangervis Solarte belted his fourth home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

His solo blast off Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez in the fourth inning wound up being the extent of the Padres offense in the contest. He finished the day 1-for-4 and is now hitting .249/.298/.378 with four homers and 30 RBI on the season.
