His bio

There isn’t much online about Solarte, his background, early life, parents, and whether or not he has any siblings. The only information we have is that the infielder was born on July 7, 1987 in Venezuela and it was his uncle Roger Cedeño who convinced his agent to take on Solarte as his client.


Solarte started his career in 2005 after signing a deal with the Minnesota Twins. He worked his way up the lower rungs of the Twins organization and quickly reached Double-A in 2009, but that season was only able to make 16 appearances thanks to the surgery he underwent at the right shoulder.

He was fit to play again in the 2010 season and he shuttled between the High-A Florida State League and the Double-A Eastern League. For the 2011 season, he played only with Eastern League New Britain, recording a .329/.367/.466 batting line in 121 games.

At the end of the 2011 season, Yangervis Solarte signed a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers, which included an invite to spring training. He spent the next two seasons (2012 and 2013) with the Round Rock Express (Triple-A affiliate of the Rangers). In those seasons, he made starts at second, third, left field, and first base. He also recorded a .282/.331/.404 batting line and 23 home runs in 263 games.

After the 2013 season, Solarte became a free agent again and in January 2014, he signed a minor league deal with the New York Yankees. He had a strong start for the Yankees, recording a game-high 20 hits, with four doubles and six RBIs. In April 2014, he recorded two doubles and became the first player in the modern era (since 1900) to get six doubles in his first seven major league games.

In his second game against the Tampa Bay Rays, Solarte recorded a 5-4-3 triple. Later in the same game, he hit his first major league home run against pitcher Grant Balfour and then his second home run. a three-point shot against the Milwaukee Brewers, who defeated them, the following month. Solarte had the highest batting average in the American League. By July, he had averaged .254 / .337 / .381 with 6 home runs and multiple starts at third and second bases and one at short stops.

The Yankees traded Solarte alongside teammate Rafael De Paula to the San Diego Padres for Chase Headley. Just a day later, Yangervis Solarte made his debut for the Padres against theChicago Cubs, he spent most of his time playing Headley (third base) but also started at second base, shortstop and left field. At the end of 2014, the Venezuelan recorded 0.276 / 0.36 / 0.35 shots with 4 home runs in 56 games.

In early 2017, Padres signed Solarte to a two-year contract with a club option for two more years. At the end of that season, he batted .255 / .314 / .416 with 18 homers in 128 games. He also made 74 starts at second base, 24 overall, 18 at third and 4 starting.

Just a year later, the Padres traded Solarte, this time to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for two minor leaguers – Edward Olivares and Jared Carkuff. After Josh Donaldson’s injuries, Solarte replaced him and became the team’s daily third baseman for most of April. He made his first career grand slam – the grand slam was in the eleventh inning, in a -6, 6 RBI game, leading to a 13-11 win at the Blue Jays.
