|Yangervis Solarte clubs first home run with the Padres |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/27/14) Padres infielder Yangervis Solarte clubbed his first home run with his new team Sunday.
In the third inning, Solarte smashed an 84 mph slider from Mike Minor out to left. Solarte added a single later in the game. He finished 2 for 5, with one run scored and one RBI.
|Could trade resuscitate Yangervis Solarte's value? |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/22/14) The trade that brought Yangervis Solarte from the Yankees to the Padres Tuesday assures at least one thing: The 27-year-old utility player play every day again. Between Jedd Gyorko's plantar fasciitis, Everth Cabrera's strained hamstring and, of course, Chase Headley's sudden departure, the Padres have openings all across their infield.
Though Solarte hadn't completely disappeared from the lineup in his final weeks with the Yankees, he sat too often to have any chance of overcoming his midsummer slump -- which, by the way, has lasted only 18 games. Granted, he's gone 4 for 51 (.078) during those 18 games, but the lack of repetition certainly hasn't helped. When inexperienced players see fewer pitches, they tend to get worse rather than better. Solarte hasn't had a chance to work through this slump. The Yankees pulled the plug on him too quickly.
He'll get that chance with the Padres, and because of that, I wouldn't rule out him making an impact in the second half. Throughout his slump, he has continued to make contact at a high rate, striking out just nine times in those 18 games, and players who do that typically hit for a high batting average. When the Yankees sent Solarte down for five games in the middle of the slump (giving him those consistent at-bats he lacked in the majors), he went 12 for 20 (.600). The ability is still there.
That's not to say I'm rushing to pick Solarte back up. It's probably unnecessary outside the deepest of leagues. But if he shows signs of life, I'll be ready.
|Yankees, Padres agree to Chase Headley trade |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/22/14) The Yankees have acquired third baseman Chase Headley from the Padres Tuesday, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Headley has struggled this season, hitting just .229/.296/.355 in 77 games, though he has been hot lately. Though he has just one home run in the month of July, he is hitting .323 with a .785 OPS in the month, his best so far.
The Padres will reportedly receive infielder Yangervis Solarte and pitching prospect Rafael De Paula from the Yankees, while sending $1 million in cash to the Yankees. Solarte has slowed down from a hot start and is hitting just .254/.337/.381 this season, while DePaula has a 4.15 ERA in 89 innings for Class A Tampa this season.
|Yankees recall Yangervis Solarte |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/10/14) The Yankees recalled infielder Yangervis Solarte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after placing outfielder Carlos Beltran on the disabled list due to a concussion. Solarte was immediately placed in the starting lineup at third base Thursday at Cleveland.
|Yangervis Solarte not a lost cause |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/3/14) With his demotion to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Thursday, it's probably safe to drop Yangeris Solarte in all but the deepest of mixed leagues. Probably.
The reason I hedge is because I have my suspicions he'll be up playing regularly again for the Yankees this year.
Part of it is because he meets their need. Even if prospect Rob Refsnyder comes up and solidifies them at second base -- which is far from assured -- Kelly Johnson doesn't appear to have anything left at third base, having performed this season much like Solarte did in his last 37 games, or basically half the season so far.
And how did Solarte perform during that stretch that ultimately led to his demotion? Well, he didn't hit his best, batting .187 (23 for 123), but much of the damage came in his last 14 games, when he batted only .073 (3 for 41). Before then, he was hitting .299 with an .826 OPS, which are numbers any team would take from a second or third baseman.
One thing that never changed for Solarte was how infrequently he strikes out. A player who puts the ball in play seven out of every eight at-bats while demonstrating the extra-base pop he did will hit for average in the majors. I'm guessing he earns another opportunity within a month.
