Solak went 2-for-3 with a walk, a home run and two RBI in Thursday's 6-4 win over Tampa Bay. Solak, a member of the Rays' farm system before being traded to Texas in July, has given his new employers something to think about. During the three-game series, he's gone 6-for-11 with two home runs and four RBI. Since being promoted to the majors, Solak has reached base multiple times in 14 of the 22 games he's played. All that's left for the Rangers is to determine where he slots into the lineup every day in 2020.
Solak went 3-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 10-4 win over the Orioles. With each passing game, Solak solidifies an everyday role for the Rangers in 2020. He's slashing .328/.449/.500 over 19 games since the team purchased his contract from Triple-A Nashville. Solak started at designated hitter Sunday, but he's zeroing in on third or second base next season.
Solak went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and a walk in the Rangers' 3-1 victory over the Orioles on Thursday. The 24-year-old provided two out of his team's three runs for the game with one swing of the bat, mashing a seventh-inning two run shot off John Means. He's been impressive over his first 53 big-league at-bats, as he's compiled a .321/.429/.528 slash line with two homers, three doubles, a triple and seven RBI.
Solak started at third base and went 2-for-4 in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Yankees. Solak continues to make regular appearances in the Rangers' starting lineup. Wednesday's start was his second at third base after he served primarily as the designated hitter and second baseman. He's in line for a full-time role for the rest of the season and will be considered an everyday starter at some position in 2020. Third base, and possibly second base, is wide-open next season, depending on how the Rangers feel about Rougned Odor clogging the lineup with a sub-.200 bat.
Solak is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees. Solak appeared to be overtaking Rougned Odor for the primary job at second base, but that may no longer be in the cards with the latter set to make his fifth straight start at the position Monday. Even if Solak remains blocked at second base, he should still have a decent avenue to steady action at either third base or designated hitter. The rookie had cracked the lineup for each of the Rangers' last 13 games, batting .333 with five extra-base hits and a stolen base.
