Yangervis Solarte stays hot with homer against Cardinals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Third baseman Yangervis Solarte continued to rake since joining the Padres with another big game Tuesday in a victory over St. Louis.

Yangervis Solarte moves across infield to third base


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) The return of Jedd Gyorko to the lineup has forced Yangervis Solarte to move from second to third base for the first time for the Padres. Solarte is playing that corner position Monday in Atlanta.

Solarte has been tearing it up at the plate since the trade that brought him from the Yankees. He has seven hits in 21 at-bats with five runs scored, one home run and one RBI in each of the five games he's played.


Yangervis Solarte clubs first home run with the Padres

Could trade resuscitate Yangervis Solarte's value?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/22/2014) 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
(7/22/2014) 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
(7/10/2014) 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
(7/3/2014) 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.


Yankees option Yangervis Solarte to Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) The Yankees announced Thursday they optioned infielder Yangervis Solarte to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. After opening the season with a .336/.414/.521/.935 slash line in his first 34 games, Solarte posted a .187/.270/.268/.538 slash line in his last 37 games.

Yangervis Solarte drives in two


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Yangervis Solarte continued to impress at the plate


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) A sharp eye and patience at the plate and ability to put bat on ball has continued to make Yankees third baseman Yangervis Solarte one of the premier rookies in the sport this season.

Solarte has emerged from a mini-slump with five hits in his last four games. More impressive is a .387 on-base percentage fueled by 19 walks in 145 at-bats and helped by having just 19 strikeouts. Solarte is batting .310 and slugging .483 with five home runs and 24 RBI.


Yangervis Solarte goes deep again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Yankees infielder Yangervis Solarte continued his hot hitting Wednesday, in a 4-0 win over the Mets.

Solarte had just one hit in the win, but he made it count, homering for the second straight game. He was 1 for 3 with the solo home run, while adding an RBI, his fourth game in a row driving in a run.

Solarte has been the surprise of the season as a rookie, hitting .336/.414/.521 with four home runs and 23 RBI in 34 games.  


Yangervis Solarte stays hot with two-hit game vs. Mets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2014) Yankees infielder Yangervis Solarte continued his hot hitting Tuesday, going 2 for 4 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored in his team's 12-7 loss to the Mets.

Solarte has delivered multiple hits in each of his last three games while going 7 for 10 at the plate, and he's also the owner of an eight-game hitting streak. Tuesday's nice line gives him a .336/.412/.500 line with three home runs and 22 RBI in 116 at-bats.


Yangervis Solarte a bigger deal than initially believed


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/12/2014) When minor-league journeyman Yangervis Solarte hit .458 (11 for 24) over his first seven games with the Yankees, it was a nice story and all, but it didn't send me rushing to the waiver wire in Fantasy. His minor-league track record suggested it wouldn't last, and besides, he was only filling in because of injury.

But now, everyone on the Yankees infield is healthy, and yet Solarte has still started 10 of the team's last 11 games.

He's kept it up at the plate as well, batting .450 (9 for 20) with a double and a home run in his last six games. It's caused me take a second look at his numbers, which are awfully impressive for the season as a whole. His 15 walks to only 15 strikeouts have me thinking his .315 batting average isn't too far-fetched, and with all the doubles he's piled up, he has a more-than-respectable .463 slugging percentage.

We've seen this before, you know -- a versatile defender whose high contact rate makes him a perennial .300 hitter with enough extra-base pop to factor in all formats. Yes, Solarte might just be the second coming of Martin Prado, right down to the unspectacular minor-league track record.

If nothing else, as long as he's playing every day, he's worth owning just for the quadruple eligibility.


Yangervis Solarte has seven RBI in last six games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2014) Yankees third baseman Yangervis Solarte contributed a sac fly and RBI single during a 6-5 loss Sunday against the Brewers. He also had one walk.

Solarte has hit safely in six straight games. He is batting .450 (9 for 20) with one double, one home run and seven RBI during his hitting streak.


Yangervis Solarte clubs second home run Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) Yankees infielder Yangervis Solarte hit his second home run Friday against the Brewers.

Solarte collected just one hit during the game, but made it count. With two men on in the top of the fourth, Solarte hit a home run on a first-pitch slider from Yovani Gallardo. He finished the day 1 for 4, with one run scored and three RBI.


Yangervis Solarte still hitting for average


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2014) Heading into Friday's game at Milwaukee, Yankees infielder Yangervis Solarte has managed two-hit games in his last two appearances. He is also batting .313 (10 for 32) with three doubles, four runs, six RBI, six walks and three strikeouts in his last nine games.

However, it's been 13 games since Solarte hit his only home run of the season April 17 against the Rays. He is hitting .306 through 28 games, but is slugging just .439.
