Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-5 with his first home run as a member of the Padres in Sunday's loss to the Braves.
Solarte has enjoyed a revitalization since being dealt to the Padres, going 7-for-21 (.333) with Sunday's homer, five RBI and five runs scored. The infielder is hitting .260/.341/.396 overall. He'll continue to get everyday playing time for the next two months and is a decent option in NL-only leagues. Jul 27 - 10:17 PM

Padres acquired INF Yangervis Solarte and RHP Rafael De Paula from the Yankees for 3B Chase Headley and cash considerations.

The Yankees picked Solarte up for nothing over the winter and managed to turn him into an upgrade at third base. Pretty nice work by GM Brian Cashman. For San Diego, this was mostly about getting anything for Headley, who will be a free agent after the season. A qualifying offer wasn't a realistic option, as he likely would have accepted a one-year deal in the range of $15 million. Solarte could see some time at third base down the stretch in San Diego, but his days of fantasy relevancy are likely already behind him.

Yankees recalled INF Yangervis Solarte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Solarte was demoted a week ago, but he's back now that Carlos Beltran has been placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list. The 26-year-old is batting .260/.343/.393 over 71 games with the Yankees this season, but his production has dropped sharply since May.
Jul 10 - 4:01 PM

Yankees optioned INF Yangervis Solarte to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Solarte hit .300 with an .834 OPS in April and May, but his numbers cratered in June and he'll head back to the Triple-A level having registered a .260/.343/.393 overall batting line over his first 71 major league games. The 26-year-old should get another shot soon, but he can be dropped in most standard fantasy leagues.
Jul 3 - 10:51 AM

Yangervis Solarte went hitless in a fourth straight game Saturday against the A's.

Solarte is hitting .190 in 42 at-bats this month, so he could be due to start losing playing time to Kelly Johnson at third base, at least against lefties. While Solarte is a switch-hitter and Johnson is purely a lefty, Solarte has struggled mightily from the right side this year and Johnson has usually done well in lefty-lefty matchups.
Jun 15 - 1:33 AM

Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Twins.

It was his sixth home run of the season. Solarte was in a 2-for-24 funk coming into play Friday, but he has five hits over the past two days against his former team.
May 31 - 4:52 PM

Yangervis Solarte went hitless in his third straight game Tuesday, going 0-for-4 in a loss to the Cardinals.

Solarte has two hits in his last 23 at-bats, and he has just one extra-base hit since May 14. He also has only one double in May after hitting nine in the first month of the season. The power outage has dropped his line to .285/.360/.436.
May 27 - 11:35 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-4 with a homer in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Pirates.

Solarte had gone hitless in three straight, including the first game of the twinbill. He should have had a third today, but Josh Harrison went airborne to rob him of a double in the bottom of the eighth.
May 18 - 7:58 PM

Yangervis Solarte hit his fourth homer and walked Wednesday against the Mets.

As terrific as Solarte was early on, he had just one homer in his first 28 games. Now he has three in his last six. He's also upped his average from .284 to .336 during a nine-game hitting streak. It's not going to last forever, but he's been a star for the first quarter of the season.
May 14 - 10:27 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run but the Yankees were bested by the Mets 12-7 on Tuesday.

Solarte's eighth inning solo blast off of Daisuke Matsuzaka in the eighth inning was too little, too late for the Yankees, who played catch-up all night long. The blast was Solarte's third of the season. He and Mark Teixeira have been the backbone of the Yankees' offense in the early going. Solarte now owns a .336/.412/.500 slash line with a team-leading 22 RBI.
May 13 - 11:32 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-2 with two RBI in Sunday's loss to the Brewers.

Solarte also walked and had a sacrifice fly in the game. He's got a six-game hitting streak that's seen his season line rise to .315/.394/.463. His .315 average is good for ninth in the American League among qualified hitters.
May 11 - 7:22 PM

Yangervis Solarte's second big-league homer was a three-run shot off Yovani Gallardo on Friday night.

After slumping in the second half of April, Solarte is rallying now, going 6-for-14 with five RBI in his last four games. The Yankees have a three-man rotation between second and third, but Solarte should be in there the majority of the time while he's hitting.
May 10 - 12:34 AM

Yangervis Solarte went 1-for-2 with a walk and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Rays.

Solarte has cooled from his all-world pace to start the year, but the hit and sacrifice fly RBI gives him a .289 average and 14 RBI for the season. He should continue to come down to earth in the coming weeks, but he still holds value in AL-only leagues for the time being.
May 4 - 4:33 PM

Yangervis Solarte has been scratched from the Yankees lineup on Sunday due to a sore right shoulder.

Brian Roberts will replace him at second base and hit eighth in the lineup. Solarte is considered day-to-day.
Apr 27 - 6:48 PM

Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, and four RBI as the Yankees defeated the Red Sox on Thursday.

Solarte snapped a three-game hitless streak, driving in some insurance runs on a two-run double in the second inning, then adding some more with a two-run single in the seventh. The 26-year-old has shockingly been one of the Yankees' most productive hitters, exiting Thursday night's game with a .310/.395/.465 line.
