Padres Injury Update: Yonder Alonso, Yangervis Solarte

By on 8/14/2014 02:15:00 PM

The San Diego Padres have placed first baseman Yonder Alonso on the 15-day disabled list with an undisclosed injury to his right forearm and wrist, reports Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Lin adds that utility man Yangervis Solarte is only day-to-day with a left oblique strain:

Alonso left San Diego’s game on Tuesday in the third inning with what was called a right forearm strain and was wearing a cast on his forearm and wrist after the contest. He had only been active since July 26 after missing 30 games with right wrist tendinitis.

Manager Bud Black said that this injury was “tendon, muscle-related” and a more extensive MRI would reveal more information on Wednesday.

The Padres have been waiting for Alonso to break out for a couple of seasons and his recurring health problems certainly aren’t going to help.  Alonso has hit .240/.285/.397 with seven home runs in 84 games this year.

Solarte left in the seventh inning of San Diego’s game on Wednesday after injuring himself making a throw to first. Oblique strains can often require a trip to the disabled list, but Black said Solarte’s is mild and is hopeful he won’t miss much time.

The 27-year-old rookie had a great April as a member of the New York Yankees and has been solid since coming to San Diego in the Chase Headley deal. In 20 games with the Padres, Solarte has hit .282/.370/.423, good for an OPS+ of 129.
