Sammy Solis: Released by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Sammy Solis: Heads to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Sammy Solis: Picked up by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sammy Solis: Released by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Reaches deal with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Brought back to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solis was recalled by the Nationals on Friday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

The 30-year-old will take the bullpen spot previously occupied by Ryan Madson, who was sent to the Dodgers, but he'll presumably be working in a lower-leverage role. Solis has a 5.24 ERA in 34.1 innings with the Nationals this season. His solid 24.8 percent strikeout rate more or less cancels out an unimpressive 10.1 percent walk rate, leading to a palatable 4.38 FIP, but he's unlikely to be anywhere near the closer conversation.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Sent down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solis is not listed on the lineup card for Tuesday's game and has presumably been optioned to Triple-A Syracuse, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Solis gave up a go-ahead, three-run homer to Matt Carpenter on Monday, and afterward manager Dave Martinez made no attempt to hide his displeasure. "I don't know what else to do," Martinez said. "He's got to get lefties out." Matt Grace and Trevor Gott will be the left-handed options in the Nats' bullpen for the time being.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Promoted to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals recalled Solis from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.

He'll assume the active roster spot of outfielder Brian Goodwin, who was dealt to the Royals on Sunday. Solis is expected to work in middle relief or as a mop-up man for the Nationals after posting a 4.50 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 28 innings in his 40 appearances with the big club earlier this season.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solis was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Solis will make way to allow Jeremy Hellickson (hamstring) to return from the disabled list and start Saturday. The lefty has posted a 4.50 ERA in 28 innings for the Nationals this season.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Fans five in impressive relief outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solis worked two scoreless frames in Sunday's extra-inning loss to the Mets, allowing only one hit while striking out five.

The left-hander has been a strikeout machine to begin 2018, recording nine of his 11 outs through four appearances via the K. He remains buried in the bullpen mix at the moment, but with Brandon Kintzler struggling in the early going, Solis might find his way into a key setup role if he continues dominating -- a role that could potentially afford him an opportunity to rack up some holds.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Cracks Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solis appears to have secured his place on the Nationals' Opening Day roster, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

The Nationals' decision to enter the season with a four-man bench was enough to clear space for Solis, who was fighting with three other pitchers for what was previously expected to be only three spots in the bullpen. As one of three left-handers in the Washington bullpen, Solis likely won't deployed purely on a situational basis, as Matt Grace and Enny Romero are also capable of serving in that capacity. One of the three southpaws would probably be most at risk of losing their spot with the Nationals if the team elects to supplement its bench corps at any point.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Still fighting for bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solis is one of four left-handed relievers competing for two open spots in the Nationals' bullpen, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Matt Grace, Enny Romero and Tim Collins are also in the mix, although the Nats have some roster flexibility to keep more than two of them to begin the regular season with Koda Glover (shoulder) and Joaquin Benoit (forearm) both expected to land on the DL. Solis has had a brilliant spring, posting a 14:1 K:BB in nine innings, but he's also the only one of the four lefties with a minor-league option remaining. If the Nats are squeezed for spots on the 25-man roster, that factor alone may cause Solis to begin the year at Triple-A Syracuse, but more likely he will slot into a setup role, where he could be a useful source of holds.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Healthy and out of options in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solis, who is out of minor-league options, thinks he's solved the issue that was causing nerve irritation in his elbow last season, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

The 29-year-old has had trouble staying healthy throughout his career, but Solis discovered in the offseason that last year's elbow trouble was actually stemming from his neck, and he's adopted a new stretching program to try and ensure the nerve irritation doesn't return. If he can stay on the field, he has the talent to emerge as Sean Doolittle's top left-handed setup man, a role which could give him some fantasy value in holds leagues.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Snags extra-inning save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Expecting call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

August 2, 2017 03:48 PM
Nationals' Sammy Solis: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solis was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Solis' demotion clears a spot in the bullpen for Brandon Kintzler, who was acquired from the Twins prior to Monday's trade deadline. While Solis had a chance to earn a high-leverage relief role when he was activated from the disabled list in early July, he squandered any opportunity of that happening by giving up runs in five of his six appearances over the past month. He'll aim to get back on track in Syracuse before likely rejoining the Nationals in September, if no injuries in the bullpen force an earlier promotion.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Recalled in temporary move
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Sammy Solis: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solis (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Saturday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

Solis is back with the big club after being sidelined for more than two months with elbow inflammation. The 28-year-old struggled in a small sample size before landing on the disabled list, but he has the opportunity to work back into a prominent role for Washington given the lack of quality arms in the Nationals' bullpen. Jacob Turner was designated for assignment to clear room on the roster for Solis.
