Ali Solis leaves Dodgers camp in contract dispute
Catcher Ali Solis signed with the Dodgers during the offseason, but he only lasted a few days of spring training. Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reported that Solis is no longer in camp with the Dodgers due to a contractual issue. The 27-year-old Solis appeared in eight games for the Rays last season, with one RBI. The Dodgers are down to five catchers in camp and are likely to add another non-roster catcher.

Pirates shovel Gerrit Cole, others to minors
The Pittsburgh Pirates pared down their roster Monday, optioning pitcher Phil Irwin to Triple-A Indianapolis. Irwin was considered a darkhorse candidate to replace Francisco Liriano in the starting rotation in case the ailing left-hander was not ready for opening day. The Pirates also reassigned pitchers Gerrit Cole, Brooks Brown, Kris Johnson, Kyle Waldrop and catcher Ali Solis to their minor-league camp. Cole, 22, is viewed as the team's top prospect and posted a 3.60 ERA with seven strikeouts in three games (two starts) this spring. The right-hander sped through the minors last season and could make his MLB debut later this year.
