Solarte was outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday but elected to become a free agent instead, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Solarte went unclaimed on the waiver wire after being designated for assignment by the Giants on Tuesday, so he'll hit the open market. He produced a .205/.247/.315 slash line with a homer and seven RBI across 28 games with San Francisco this season.
