Rangers' Nick Solak: Sent to Triple-A
Solak was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday.
Solak started only one of the past five games and has now been demoted to the minors. The 27-year-old hit .209/.293/.313 with two home runs, three RBI and three stolen bases in 75 plate appearances. Mitch Garver (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: On bench in second straight
Solak is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels.
Solak is on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher (Noah Syndergaard) for the second day in a row and looks to have lost hold of his everyday role to Eli White, who remains in the lineup Monday as Texas' leadoff man. Since the beginning of May, Solak has appeared in 10 games and has slashed an underwhelming .214/.267/.250, though he's at least chipped in three stolen bases.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Not in Sunday's lineup
Solak is not in Sunday's lineup against the Red Sox.
He is hitting .214 with zero home runs and three steals in 10 games this month. Eli White gets the start in left field while Brad Miller starts at designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Doubles, swipes two bags
Solak went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and two stolen bases in a 6-4 win Tuesday over Kansas City.
Both of Solak's stolen bases directly led to runs, as he stole second before scoring on a two-out single in the fourth and, in the sixth, stole third and scored on a wild pitch. Entering the game he was in the midst of a massive slump, going 3-for-26 in the last 14 contests. It was his first double and third extra-base hit on the season. His .700 OPS is right in line with his .706 career mark.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Sits in second straight
Solak is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader with the Yankees.
Solak has a clearer path to playing time against right-handed pitching following Willie Calhoun's recent demotion to Triple-A Round Rock, but the former will nonetheless find himself on the bench versus a righty (Gerrit Cole) for the second game in a row. Rather than leaning on Solak as a direct replacement for Calhoun, the Rangers are more likely to rotate a number of different players in the designated-hitter spot.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Sits against right-hander
Solak isn't starting Wednesday against Philadelphia.
Most of Solak's starts this season have come against left-handed pitchers, and he'll retreat to the bench against righty Zack Wheeler on Wednesday. Andy Ibanez will serve as the designated hitter while Zach Reks enters the lineup in left field.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Gets start against lefty
Solak started in left field and went 1-for-2 with a stolen base and run scored in Sunday's 7-3 win over Atlanta.
Solak got the start in left field, per usual when the Rangers face left-handed starters. He was pulled later in the game for a pinch hitter against a righty reliever. Solak is the primary starter in left field against lefties, while Brad Miller and, more recently, Zach Reks occupy left field against righties.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Belts big blast
Solak went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 8-6 win over Seattle.
The Mariners built a five-run first-inning lead in the contest, but the Rangers clawed their way back. They took their first lead in the fifth inning when Solak swatted a two-run shot to left field. The long ball was his second of the season and first since Opening Day. Before Thursday, he hadn't knocked in a run over his previous seven games.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Gets another start in LF
Solak started in left field and went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to Seattle.
Solak made a fourth consecutive start in left field. That's by design whenever the Rangers are facing lefty starters, as they were in three of those four contests, but he also started against a righty because primary left fielder Brad Miller dealt with back tightness over the weekend. Miller returned to action Tuesday as a pinch hitter and played three innings at third base, which suggests he could be ready to go in the outfield Wednesday against Mariners right-hander Logan Gilbert....

Rangers' Nick Solak: Raps two hits in loss
Solak started in left field and went 2-for-5 in Sunday's 8-3 loss to the Angels.
Solak made a second consecutive start in left field while Brad Miller (back) remains sidelined. He likely would have started Sunday, regardless of Miller's injury, against a southpaw and is the primary fill-in against all opposing pitchers until Miller's ready. Solak is 6-for-19 with one extra-base hit and one RBI as a part-timer through six games.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Fills in for Miller
Solak started in left field in place of the injured Brad Miller (back) and went 0-for-3 in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Angels.
Miller was a late scratch from the lineup, giving Solak an opportunity against right-handed starter Noah Syndergaard. With left-hander Jose Suarez on the bump Sunday for the Angels, Solak is expected to get another opportunity regardless of Miller's status. Solak is 4-for-14 (.286) with five runs, one home run and one RBI through five games.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Crosses home four times
Solak started in left field and went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three additional runs scored in Sunday's 12-6 win over the Blue Jays.
Solak's second-inning solo job was the lone offense through three innings before the powerful Texas lineup plated eight runs in innings four and five. With the Rangers facing their first left-handed starter, Solak made his first start, replacing Brad Miller. The Rangers rank first in the majors with 23 runs over three games and own a healthy .811 OPS. That means there's no reason for Solak to replace an existing starter, so he'll need to find opportunities off the bench or against southpaws.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Makes up for miscue
Solak went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's spring training game against Oakland.
Solak, who played second base in 2021, is trying to add left field to his defensive portfolio, and it's where he started Thursday. He was shaky early, misplaying a ball due to the sun which led to a run. He later made up for it by cranking his second homer of the Cactus League. If Solak's going to get regular at-bats in 2022, it will be as an outfielder. He's 4-for-10 thus far in three spring training games.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Goes deep Tuesday
Solak went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's spring training game against Arizona.
Solak hit the first of two homers off Madison Bumgarner in the second inning to put the Rangers on top for good. He started in left field, where he's expected to spend most of his time in 2022 -- and could be the starter -- after serving at second base last season. With Marcus Semien signed, Solak will focus on left field with potential to get time at third base. If he struggles at the plate like he did last season, Solak could eventually be knocked from the starter's job by Eli White, who also homered Tuesday, when his elbow has healed enough for him to play the field....

Rangers' Nick Solak: Focusing on left field
Texas manager Chris Woodward said Tuesday that Solak will primarily focus on left field in camp and spring training games, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.
Solak has experience at third base, and his name was floated as a candidate for the starting job at the hot corner, but Woodward burst that bubble. The manager talked more about Andy Ibanez and Yonny Hernandez competing for the job, while also throwing in the possibility of a platoon. Solak was Texas' starter at second base on Opening Day in 2021 but struggled at the plate and was eventually demoted to Triple-A Round Rock, where he mostly played second base.... See More ...

Rangers' Nick Solak: Takes seat Wednesday
Solak is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.
Solak went 5-for-18 with three walks and a stolen base while starting in six of the last eight games, but he'll head to the bench Wednesday while Andy Ibanez gets a turn at the keystone.... See More ... See Less
