BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-07-19 17:00:00 (link to chat)Is Yangervis Solarte a good fit with the Red Sox?
(Trixie from San Diego)
I feel like I have to preface every 3B target question with the statement "Well, he'd be better than what they have", because literally anything would be better. A mannequin with a bat duct taped to one of the hands would be better.

Solarte would be a decent option and his contract is very affordable, but the length of that contract can get in the way of their roster building for next year, since Devers is expected to take over sometime next year. Solarte seems like a guy who would be put in a deal with Brad Hand, and the Red Sox aren't going to fork over any big time prospects for those two. Probably. (Brett Cowett)
2014-05-07 17:00:00 (link to chat)I've been waiting for a month now for Yangervis Solarte to come back down to earth as any unheralded prospect should. So far he seems to be holding steady. What are the realistic expectations for him ROS?
(Chad from OKC)
.270 with 5-10 home runs? He's been good, but honestly outside of the BA and improved walk rate he isn't been much for fantasy. (Mike Gianella)
2014-04-16 19:00:00 (link to chat)I dropped Grady Sizemore for Chase Headley. Will Headley pick it up? I also am wondering if Yangervis Solarte will keep it it?
(Joe from NY)
Sizemore will keep it up if he's healthy, yes, but who knows how long that lasts? I'm sure Headley will perform better than he is currently, but I don't think he's a superstar - I'm down on him compared to some. No, Solarte will not keep this up. If you dropped Sizemore and you still have Solarte and you don't need a SS, rectify that immediately. (Ben Carsley)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Help! My AL-only team has six players on the DL (Parker, Fister, Willingham, Profar, Izturis, and Pryor), two others nursing hammys (Hardy, Eaton), and a reliever sent down to AAA (Feliz). I can't convince anyone to part with an extra infielder for picks, so I'm stuck relying on the supplemental draft this week. Two picks. I plan on taking an IF and pitcher. Is Yangervis Solarte for real? Should I take him? The alternatives are Roberts, Goins, Flaherty, Sogard, and Wilson. How about Betances? Or should I go for a more stolid Colby Lewis, Aaron Harang or Chris Capuano?
(touchstoneQu from Erie, PA)
The best part about Scoresheet is that you don't have to answer the question of whether Yangervis Solarte is for real. When looking for playing time, your more pressing concern is whether the Yankees think he's for real, and that's likely been answered in the affirmative. We discussed this in the pod, but Solarte should be good for a little pop and some flexibility at both second and third. Sogard would be next, but maybe we just want to overturn that #FaceofMLB fiasco. As for pitchers, stolidness rules the day. We lean towards Lewis or the surprisingly resilient Harang. Betances is enticing, but if you're in the hunt, you can probably get top shelf relief from a non-contender later in the season. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Yangervis Solarte will continue to be a viable fantasy player?
(Alex from Anaheim)
I no, but I'm tepid with that take. He was solid in other organizations, I'd roll with him in deep leagues but in shallower (12 tm) I'd be looking for an upgrade. (Mauricio Rubio)
