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."

Will Middlebrooks, Yangervis Solarte still battling for Padres' 3B job


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

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."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Padres third basemen Will Middlebrooks and Yangervis Solarte are competing for the third base job this spring, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune

"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.

He is also okay if he ends up playing a different position down the line.

Meanwhile, Solarte is doing what he can to help Middlebrooks adjust to his new surroundings.
