Solano was reassigned to the Nationals' minor-league camp Wednesday, MLB.com's Jamal Collier reports. Solano's chances of cracking the Nationals' Opening Day roster improved following the release of Derek Norris earlier in the spring, but since he's still behind Matt Wieters and Jose Lobaton in the pecking order at catcher, he probably needed an injury to either of those two players in order to have a more realistic shot. The 31-year-old is expected to head to Triple-A Syracuse to begin the 2017 campaign.
Solano went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros. After spending last year in the Marlins' organization, Solano returned to the Nats in the offseason and will provide some depth at catcher at Triple-A. Injuries could allow him to see some big league action, but the 31-year-old can't be expected to make any kind of fantasy impact if he does.
Solano re-signed with the Nationals on a minor league contract, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Solano was unimpressive with Triple-A Syracuse in 2016, batting just .225 in 52 games. This will likely keep him in an organizational depth role again in 2017.
Solano was assigned to minor league camp Monday. Solano received an invite to spring training with the Nats, but he'll likely spend the year in Triple-A again on the heels of a lackluster 2014 in which he hit .228/.271/.311 in 55 Triple-A contests.
Solano signed a minor league contract with the Nationals on Wednesday that includes an invite to spring training. Solano spent the majority of last season in Triple-A, where he hit just .228/.271/.311 in 55 games. He's spent time in the Washington organization previously, but appears to be a long shot to make the Opening Day roster out of the spring.
