Yangervis Solarte can play anywhere, do anything for Padres
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Padres utilty man Yangervis Solarte will be in the lineup most days. He just doesn't know where.
"Every day, it's a new place," he said per MLB.com's Corey Brock. "And that's good for me. I can play everywhere. That's a good situation. I can do everything. The more positions I can play, the better it is for me. I think that it can help me and help the team."
"We feel good about Solarte in there," said manager Bud Black.
Solarate has started at three infield positions this spring and is hitting .295.
"Overall, he's done a nice job moving around the diamond," Black said. "The versatility he brings is very advantageous for us. He brings some offense, some durability."
Padres' Black: Yangervis Solarte a fit for National League
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Padres manager Bud Black praised the versatility, defense and switch-hitting abilility of infielder Yangervis Solarte Monday, calling him a fit for the National League, U-T San Diego reports.
"We talk about that a lot," Black said. "There really is a difference between the two leagues when you try to construct your bench. He’s a guy that fits that profile. You use two or three bench guys a night in the National League. He gives you the versatility to feel good about making a double switch and lose anything on defense. He gives you the switch hitting component offensively. Mentally he’s on board, if that is the case, where if he doesn’t start a game he’s ready to come in."
Solarte is in the mix to start at third base but should see plenty of action regardless of whether he wins the job. He is 12 for 39 with two doubles and two walks this spring.
Will Middlebrooks, Yangervis Solarte still battling for Padres' 3B job
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Padres manager Bud Black declared that the third base job is "still open".
Will Middlebrooks has started more games at the hot corner, but Yangervis Solarte is still a candidate to win the job, Black said, per UT San Diego's Dennis Lin.
The Padres acquired the 26-year-old Middlebrooks from the Red Sox in a December trade. He's hitting .333, with two home runs and five RBI in 10 games this spring. He's started all 10 at third base and also played third in a split-squad game.
The 27-year-old Solarte was acquired in a trade with the Yankees last July. He's also hitting .333 this spring. Solarte has six starts at third base and three each at second base and first base.
"The beauty of Solarte is that he’s able to move all over the field," Black said, "and we’ve moved him all over the field. That doesn’t discount the fact that he’s still vying for the spot at third base."
Padres' Middlebrooks, Solarte competing for starting role
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) Padres third basemen Will Middlebrooks and Yangervis Solarte are competing for the third base job this spring, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Manager Bud Black admitted third base was the "biggest" competition in camp. He said he believes both players can hack it in the majors, but was hesitant to say he would utilize them in a platoon role.
"Possibility," Black said, "but I think any player will tell you he wants to be an everyday player -- they want to play. And they’re both young, they’re both in their mid-20s. You hope it’s a tough decision at the end, but these things have a way of working themselves out."
Middlebrooks, 26, hit .191 over 215 at-bats last season. Solarte hit .260/.336/.369 over 469 at-bats.
Padres' Middlebrooks, Solarte competing, getting along at third base
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) Padres thirdbasemen Will Middlebrooks and Yangervis Solarte are both battling to get the starting nod at third base during spring training, but the two are getting along just fine so far, reports UTSanDiego.com.
"I'm trying to help him, he's trying to help me," Middlebrooks said. "We're working together, we're having fun and we're competing. It's for the team, and I think it'll be good if we both push each other."
Middlebrooks hit .191 with two home runs and 19 RBI in 215 plate appearances for the Red Sox in 2014.
He is also okay if he ends up playing a different position down the line.
"Third base is the priority," he said, "but wherever I can get in the lineup, wherever I can help us win some baseball games, that's what's important for me."
Meanwhile, Solarte is doing what he can to help Middlebrooks adjust to his new surroundings.
"That's competing," Solarte said. "For me, it's my teammate. I want to work hard with him and make it fun, too."
|2014 summary: The Yankees signed Yangervis Solarte to a minor league deal last offseason, and he wound up playing a surprisingly prominent role for them, getting the bulk of the reps at third base over the first half of the season. He cooled off in June, lost playing time, was briefly demoted and then traded to the Padres in the Chase Headley deal. He ended up being Headley's replacement in San Diego and finished the season batting .260 with 10 home runs and 48 RBI. |
Playing time status: Solarte may wind up getting relegated to a utility role once again, as the Padres' offseason acquisition of Will Middlebrooks could force him off third base.
2015 outlook: Solarte had some deeper league appeal as a starter, but unless he can maintain regular playing time -- which is looking like a dubious proposition -- he shouldn't be viewed as anything other than late-round filler in NL-only leagues.
