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. Oct 1 - 10:34 PM

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 had a three-run home run and a walk in five plate appearances as the Padres routed the Braves on Tuesday.

Solarte made it a five-run sixth inning when he hit a three-run home run off of Ross Detwiler, building the Padres' lead to 7-0. He had been slumping, batting .067 (1-for-15) in his previous five games. On the season, Solarte is batting .262/.319/.406 with eight home runs and 45 RBI.
Aug 19 - 1:27 AM

Yangervis Solarte hit two home runs, knocked in four runs, and drew a walk in five plate appearances in Monday's win over the Brewers.

Solarte put the Padres on the board early with a first-inning solo home run against Wily Peralta. He added a three-run home run to cap off a six-run seventh inning. The third baseman is on a nine-game hitting streak, the most recent four of which have included multiple hits. Solarte owns a productive .266/.319/.418 batting line with seven home runs and 40 RBI on the year.
Aug 3 - 11:30 PM

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.
Jul 29 - 11:38 PM

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.
Jul 12 - 1:52 AM

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.
Jul 4 - 4:59 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored in Friday's win over the Cardinals.

Don't expect to see Solarte legging out triples on a regular basis. The three-bagger was his first of the season and just the second of his career. He's hitting .249/.299/.367 with three homers and 29 RBI for the 2015 campaign and shouldn't be relied upon in fantasy formats, despite the newfound existence of wheels on those feet.
Jul 4 - 1:14 AM

Yangervis Solarte was ejected from Thursday's game in the sixth inning for arguing a check-swing call.

Solarte went 1-for-3 with a solo homer before home plate umpire Bob Davidson gave him the boot. His solo shot in the second inning snapped a 22-inning scoreless streak for San Diego.
Jul 3 - 12:05 AM

Yangervis Solarte gave the Padres reason to smile in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners, as his seventh-inning double prevented a no-hitter.

Mariners starter Mike Montgomery hadn't allowed a hit with one out in the seventh inning when Solarte stepped to the plate. He saved his team from ignominy with a double, but he was ultimately stranded. Solarte had consecutive multi-hit games coming into Tuesday, but otherwise hasn't done much at the plate in 2015, batting .247/.299/.344 with two home runs and 28 RBI.
Jul 1 - 12:41 AM

Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run single in the 11th inning to help lead the Padres to a 6-4 win over the Braves on Thursday afternoon.

Solarte entered the game pinch-hitting in the 8th inning and his single off of Julio Teheran helped continue a Padres rally that would eventually result in three runs and a 4-4 score. A few innings later, he hit a two-run single off Brandon Cunniff to put the Padres up 6-4, which would stand as the final. After a tremendous April, Solarte hit just .231/.278/.306 over 108 at-bats in May.
