Yangervis Solarte is a talented, switch-hitting infield prospect who somehow slipped through both the Twins and Rangers systems before landing on the New York Yankees' opening day roster in 2014. Drafted as an IFA from Valencia, Venezuela, Solarte has played all over the diamond, though the Rangers seem to prefer his hands at second base, where his tools (a little power, a little speed) look most valuable.

After taking his AA career to a .329/.367/.466 plateau in the Eastern League's 2011 campaign, Solarte did much the same with AAA pitching in 2012, slashing .288/.340/.405 with 11 homers at AAA Round Rock. A four time MiLB All Star, Solarte has little left to prove in the minors, and on an injury-riddled Yankee team, he should stick.

News and Notes

We're only a week into 2014, but Yangervis Solarte certainly looks comfortable in pinstripes. The young infielder is leading the team with a .471 average, making the offseason loss of Robinson Cano and Alex Rodriguez a lot easier for Yankee fans to stomach... for now.
