Padres Lose Another Starter

Hot-hitting infielder placed on the disabled list

For the second time in two days the Padres had to put a starter on the 15-day disabled list. On Sunday 3rd baseman Yangervis Solarte joined starting pitcher Tyson Ross.

Solarte injured his hamstring in Saturday’s 16-3 Padres win in Colorado. He hit a ball into the outfield but pulled up lame rounding first base. Solarte was off to a solid start to the season with three doubles, four RBI and a 1.036 OPS.

Alexi Amarista was recalled from Triple-A El Paso to fill the roster spot. Adam Rosales is in the Padres starting lineup for Sunday’s series finale against the Rockies, batting 8th and playing 3rd base. Christian Bethancourt will also get his first start in a San Diego uniform, giving Derek Norris a rest behind the plate. Here’s the full starting lineup:

1)    Jon Jay, CF
2)    Cory Spangenberg, 2B
3)    Matt Kemp, RF
4)    Wil Myers, 1B
5)    Melvin Upton Jr., LF
6)    Christian Bethancourt, C
7)    Alexei Ramirez, SS
8)    Adam Rosales, 3B
9)    James Shields, P
