Solis allowed a solo home run in the 11th inning, but still picked up the save Thursday against Houston. Solis' struggles with the long ball continue, as he has now allowed four home runs over 16.1 innings, a major contributor to his brutal 9.37 ERA. Solis was fantastic in 2016 and will continue to get chances based off those excellent 41 innings (47 strikeouts, 2.41 ERA), but don't expect him to earn too many save chances outside of deep extra innings.
The Nationals recalled Solis from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday. He takes the place of Enny Romero, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left forearm strain. Solis is saddled with a 14.00 ERA over nine innings with the Nationals but was lethal in 2016 (2.41 ERA, 10.3 K/9, 4.6 BB/9 in 41 frames). Perhaps he'll reclaim a steady role in important middle-inning appearances.
Solis is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports. Solis was optioned back to the minors on Wednesday, but with Enny Romero (forearm) likely headed to the DL, it appears the 28-year-old will be back sooner than expected. He's conceded runs in five of his six appearances over the past month, so he'll likely work in lower-leverage situations upon his return to the big league bullpen.
Solis was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports. Solis will take the roster spot of Stephen Strasburg (elbow), who was placed on the disabled list in a corresponding move. The stay of Solis in the majors is only expected to last for two days, as he'll be sent back down to clear a roster spot when the team needs to recall Erick Fedde for Saturday's start.
Solis was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports. The left-hander occupied an important spot of late in the Nats' bullpen by default, considering how injury-prone and weak it has been. Solis looked out of place, considering his 14.73 ERA in 7.1 innings. The 28-year-old will now wait at Triple-A for his next ride on the shuttle. In the meantime, the Nats will make a corresponding move before Friday's second-half opener.
