Padres move Yangervis Solarte to leadoff spot for Friday's game
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Padres first baseman Yangervis Solarte was switched to the leadoff spot for Friday’s game at the Los Angeles Dodgers, reports the team's play-by-play announcer.
It is the first time this season Solarte will bat in the leadoff spot. He will go against Zack Greinke, who he is 0 for 5 against in his career. Solarte is batting .250 with two RBI in his last six games.
The Padres are the underdogs (+180) against the Dodgers on Friday.

|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Padres third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who didn't start in San Diego's last five games, returned to the starting lineup at the eighth spot Tuesday night at Seattle, per U-T San Diego.
Yangervis Solarte replaced Middlebrooks in four of the five games he was held out. Solarte is the designated hitter for the Padres at Safeco Field.
Middlebrooks is hitless in his last 19 at-bats, and is hitting .205 on the season.
San Diego is considered an underdog (+135) in Seattle, per VegasInsider.com.
Padres 2B Yangervis Solarte scuffling against southpaws
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/15) Struggles against left-handers has prevented Padres switch-hitter Yangervis Solarte from really taking off in 2015.
Solarte owns a more-than-respectable slash line of .293/.343/.424. But he is just 3-for-21 against lefties. resulting in occasional benchings. He has two home runs and 18 RBI on the year.
His average, however, is at its lowest point since April 24. Solarte has seven hits in his last 31 at-bats.
Padres' Yonder Alonso, Alexi Amarista get second day off in last three
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/4/15) For the second time in three games, the Padres are keeping both first baseman Yonder Alonso and shortstop Alexi Amarista out of the starting lineup.
Just as in Saturday's contest, Yangervis Solarte gets the start at first and Clint Barmes will start at shortstop.
It's Solarte's fifth start of the year at first, and Barmes eighth at short. They're hitting fifth and eighth in the lineup respectively.
Padres' Cory Spangenberg earns Sunday start vs. Rockies
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Padres utility man Cory Spangenberg will start for the Padres in Sunday's game against the Rockies. He'll bat second and play second base.
This is Spangenberg's first start since an April 24 game against the Dodgers.
Third baseman Yangervis Solarte is back in the lineup and will hit fifth. After taking Saturday off, shortstop Alexi Amarista is back in the lineup and will bat eighth.
|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.
