Solis was released by the Padres on Thursday. Solis compiled a 3.57 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 28:8 K:BB in 22.2 innings with Triple-A El Paso before being cut loose. The veteran reliever will now look to latch on elsewhere as bullpen depth.
The Padres reassigned Solis to Triple-A El Paso, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Solis attended spring training with the Padres as a non-roster invitee but was unable to secure a spot with the big club when Opening Day arrived. Since he doesn't have a spot on the 40-man roster, Solis may struggle to earn an early promotion to the Padres even if he performs well at Triple-A.
Solis signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Monday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports. Solis didn't spend a long time unemployed after being released by the Nationals on Saturday. He joins a team with a deep bullpen, though the Padres' left-handed relievers are thin with Brad Wieck battling cancer and Jose Castillo out at least two months with a flexor strain. Solis could win a job as the Padres' second lefty along with Aaron Loup.
Solis was released by the Nationals on Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Solis was tendered a contract in November despite struggling heavily over the past two seasons, posting ERAs of 5.88 and 6.41. By releasing him Saturday, the Nationals only have to pay Solis one sixth of his salary.
Solis signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with Washington on Friday to avoid arbitration, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. Solis appeared in 56 games for the Nationals in 2018, though he posted a disastrous 6.41 ERA and 1.55 WHIP while working in low-leverage spots. He will likely be able to pin down an Opening Day roster spot, as his 4.95 FIP and 44:18 K:BB across 39.1 innings should've led to better results this past season.
