The Braves released Solarte on Aug. 27. Atlanta added Solarte to its 60-man roster pool shortly before summer camp started, but the veteran infielder was unable to win a spot on the Opening Day roster. The Braves didn't envision him making his way on the roster at any point in the near future, so Solarte was cut loose to pursue opportunities elsewhere.
Solarte will be a part of the Braves' 60-man roster, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Solarte reached an agreement to play in Japan over the second half of 2019, but he signed a minor-league contract with the Braves in January as a non-roster invitee. He hit .182/.240/.227 with a double and two RBI this spring before play was suspended. Given his lackluster results in recent seasons, it's unlikely that he'll see significant major-league playing time during the abbreviated 2020 campaign.
Solarte signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Wednesday as a non-roster invitee, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. Solarte finished the 2019 season in Japan after only receiving a minor-league deal with the Marlins. The 32-year-old spent some time in the majors with the Giants at the beginning of the season, hitting .205/.247/.315 with seven RBI over 28 games prior to electing free agency. While Solarte has appeared in the majors in each of his past six seasons, his production has decreased in recent years.
Solarte was removed from his game Tuesday with Triple-A New Orleans after reaching agreement on a contract with a team in Japan, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. After electing free agency in early May, Solarte landed with the Marlins on a minor-league deal just under a month later. Since his contract contained language allowing him to opt out and pursue opportunities elsewhere, the 31-year-old elected to do just that since a promotion to Miami seemingly wasn't imminent. Solarte, who slashed .314/.345/.451 over his 15 games with New Orleans, could resurface in North America in 2020 if MLB organizations are still interested in his services at that time.
Solarte agreed to a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Friday, Craig Mish of Sirius XM reports. Solarte spent 28 games with the Giants earlier this season, but he struggled to a .205 average with a home run and seven RBI. He'll report to extended spring training before ultimately getting sent to Triple-A New Orleans.
