According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Dodgers are among the teams talking to the Padres about Yangervis Solarte.
Los Angeles is hoping to retain third baseman Justin Turner, but Turner is one of the biggest fish on a weak free agent market and is drawing heavy interest from many other clubs. Solarte would be a pretty good fallback plan, coming off a year in which he slashed 286/.341/.467 with 15 homers and 71 RBI in 443 plate appearances as the Padres' primary cleanup hitter. Solarte, 29, is under control via salary arbitration through 2019. Dec 5 - 7:38 AM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Padres are aggressively shopping Yangervis Solarte.

The 29-year-old slashed an impressive .286/.341/.467 with 15 homers and 71 RBI in 443 plate appearances with the Padres in 2016 while serving primarily as their cleanup hitter. He's in his first year of arbitration though and is projected by to earn $2.7 million in the process. While that may not seem excessive, the Padres are trying to cut payroll and may look to get what they can now for one of their top trade chips.

Yangervis Solarte has rejoined the Padres.

Yangervis Solarte (personal) would like to return this season, but Padres manager Andy Green said the infielder's situation remains "fluid."

Solarte's wife, Yuliett, died this past Saturday from complications related to cancer. She was only 31. Obviously the Padres will give Solarte all the time he needs.
Sep 23 - 10:04 AM

Yangervis Solarte was scratched from the Padres lineup on Friday due to a family issue.

He left the club to go home and be with his family. There's no timetable for his return at the moment, but with the Padres long out of contention, he certainly won't be rushed. Alexi Amarista replaced him in Friday's lineup and could see extra run in his absence.

Sep 11 - 7:55 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-4 with three RBI in a win over the Rockies on Saturday.

He singled in a run in the first inning and followed that with a two-RBI double in the next frame. His season stats look a bit low because he missed over a month on the disabled list but he has been a quality fantasy producer when in the lineup. He is batting .283 with 15 home runs and 63 RBI in 97 games.
Sep 11 - 12:17 AM

Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-3 with a homer and three RBI as the Padres fell to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Sep 4 - 8:21 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-5 with his 14th homer in the Padres' 4-2 victory over the Dodgers on Friday.

Solarte had a quiet August, hitting .227/.290/.371 in 26 games. Still, he's been a fine regular throughout, and he's getting the job done from both sides of the plate; his OPS is right around .800 hitting both left-handed and right-handed.
Sep 3 - 2:49 AM

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.

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.
