Padres' Middlebrooks, Solarte competing for starting role
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(8:23 pm ET) 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."
Wil Myers among the candidates to hit leadoff for Padres
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/27/15) The Padres don't have a prototypical leadoff hitter on their 40-man roster, so manager Bud Black is already trying to pare down the potential candidates he does have at his disposal, per U-T San Diego.
“Yangervis Solarte, Will Venable, Cameron Maybin and Wil Myers -- let’s start there,” Black said of the options at the top of his list.
However, of that list of players, Myers is the only one assured of playing every day. He has a career .324 on-base percentage.
Yangervis Solarte ready to roll Saturday for Padres
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/16/14) Third baseman Yangervis Solarte is set to play Saturday for the Padres in St. Louis. He had been sidelined snce Wednesday with an oblique injury.
Solarte has raised all the numbers on his stat line since arriving to San Diego from the Yankees. He is now at .261/.345/.391.
Yangervis Solarte can't play Friday
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/15/14) Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte is out of the lineup yet again Friday against the Cardinals, as he continues to deal with an oblique injury. It is not clear if he is expected to be available off the bench this weekend.
|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.
