Rangers' Nick Solak: Struggling against righties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak is batting just .161 (15-for-93) against right-handers since May 1, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Solak was held out of Saturday's starting lineup against Dodgers right-hander Trevor Bauer in what could be a more regular occurrence. He was replaced by Eli White, who recently has played the outfield but came up through the system as a utility infielder. White was hitless with a walk and a run scored in Saturday's game.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

Solak sits for just the second time all season despite his mediocre .234/.307/.393 slash line. He's been particularly poor over his last 20 games, hitting just .152/.212/.222. Eli White takes over at second base in his absence.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a double Tuesday against the Giants.

Solak made his lone hit of the contest count by delivering a two-RBI double in the sixth inning. Entering the game, he had failed to drive in a run in each of his last seven contests and gone only 4-for-23 at the plate in that span. Despite the slump, Solak still has a 100 wRC+ with eight homers, 26 RBI and 36 runs scored across 259 plate appearances for the season.

Rangers' Nick Solak: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

With just one homer and a .192 average in his last 32 games, Solak has certainly cooled off after a hot start to the season. Charlie Culberson will get the start at second base and bat seventh Wednesday.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Socks eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Yankees.

His fifth-inning solo shot chased Jameson Taillon from the game and brought the Rangers within a run, but they never got any closer. Solak had gone 19 straight games without a homer, slashing .213/.289/.307 during his power drought, but he's hitting a solid .269 with eight home runs, 21 RBI and 31 runs through 44 contests.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Has three RBI in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, three RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 10-2 win over the Mariners.

Solak's only hit of the day came in the fifth when he roped a sinker down the left-field line for a two-RBI double. He later drove in another run in the eighth inning on a groundout. It was a great bounceback performance for the 26-year-old after he went 0-for-5 in Saturday's thrilling 9-8 win. Solak is having a very solid season so far with a slash line of .277/.353/.467. He has seven home runs, 19 RBI and 25 runs scored, but his 9:38 BB:K suggests he needs to have more discipline at the plate.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Drills three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Mariners.

Solak doubled in a run and later came around to score in the first inning. The breakout star is slashing .289/.364/.484 with 11 extra-base hits and 23 runs scored this season.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Moves up order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak batted second and went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Angels.

Solak's recent hot streak has prompted manager Chris Woodward to move him up to the two-hole, regardless of the opposing starter's handedness. "I just want him up there as many times as possible," the manager told Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. "His at-bats against right and left are just as good." Solak, who belted two home runs Tuesday, is batting .393 (22-for-56) with six homers, 12 RBI and 13 runs scored over the last 15 games.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Connects on two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three runs, two RBI and a strikeout as Texas beat Los Angeles 6-1 on Tuesday.

Solak bookended the game's scoring with a solo home runs in the first and seventh innings and scored an additional run on Joey Gallo's home run in the third. After hitting only two home runs in 58 games last season, Solak already has seven in 24 games this year.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Finding power stroke
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's 9-7 loss to the White Sox.

Solak's rebound from a slow start continued unabated Friday with his fifth home run of the season. After batting .209 with a strikeout rate of 35.4 K%, Solak's slashing .367/.472/.767 with four homers, six RBI, five walks and seven runs while lowering his strikeout rate to 16.7 K% over the last eight games.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Slams fourth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in the 6-2 loss Tuesday against the Angels.

After starting the season slow, Solak has cut his strikeout rate down and is on a six-game hitting streak during which he's slugged three homers and hit .455. Thursday's walk was only his fourth of the season, but the 26-year-old has been adept at putting the ball in play over the last week.

Rangers' Nick Solak: On base four times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles and two walks in Sunday's 1-0 extra-inning win over the Orioles.

Solak continued to do well at the plate. In the 10th inning, he drew a walk to load the bases before Nate Lowe hit a walkoff single. Solak is slashing .293/.379/.466 with three homers, eight RBI and 10 runs scored in 16 games. He's also gone 2-for-3 on stolen base attempts -- he was caught stealing for the first time this season Sunday.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Locked in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Orioles.

Solak's fifth-inning shot was his second in as many games. After a slow start with an uncharacteristically-high strikeouts rate, Solak has locked in the last four games, going 7-for-16 with two homers, six RBI, five runs and just two strikeouts.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Slams second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and an additional run scored in the 6-4 win over the Rays on Thursday.

Solak's home run came off Rich Hill in the second inning. Solak has been the definition of inconsistent to start the season. The 26-year-old has had big games like Thursday, but he also has a 34 percent strikeout rate that recently got him bumped down in the lineup. His 18 strikeouts compared to one walk needs to improve in order for him to hit at the top of the lineup every day.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Delivers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 2-for-4 with a double, three RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Rays.

One day after Solak was dropped from the middle of the order to seventh amid a strikeout spree, his bases-clearing double plated the game's deciding runs. The infielder entered Tuesday's contest with just two hits and eight strikeouts over the previous 14 at- bats.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Dropped to seventh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak batted seventh and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in Monday's 1-0 loss to Tampa Bay.

Many of the Rangers' young hitters are having contact issues to start the 2021 season, and Solak is no exception. He had a strikeout rate of 19.2 percent over 2019 and 2020, but that's shot up to 42.5 percent with 17 punch-outs over 40 plate appearances. "He's trying way too hard to make things happen instead of letting them happen," manager Chris Woodward said.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Pops homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Blue Jays. He was also hit by a pitch.

Solak opened the scoring with his solo shot off Blue Jays starter Hyun Jin Ryu in the second inning. The 26-year-old Solak also got aboard when he was hit by a pitch in the eighth inning, but he didn't come around to score. He's mostly worked in the heart of the order to begin 2021. He's batting .238 with a homer, two stolen bases, two RBI and five runs scored through six games as the Rangers' primary second baseman.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Swipes two bags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 2-for-4 with two stolen bases and a run scored in Tuesday's 7-4 victory over Toronto.

Both of Solak's steals came following his third-inning single, though he was ultimately stranded at third base. The 26-year-old swiped seven bags in eight attempts last season and stole 21 bases at Double-A in 2018, so he can be a contributor in that category if he's able to reach base consistently.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Dropped to fifth in order
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak batted fifth and went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Royals.

Solak began the season as an unlikely cleanup batter but was dropped to fifth Sunday. With Nate Lowe off to a productive start as the fifth-place hitter, he was moved up to offer more protection for Joey Gallo, who walked five times in the first two games.

Rangers' Nick Solak: Heating up in spring play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solak went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's spring game against Arizona.

Solak homered for the second straight game and is now 4-for-9 over his last three games. That's the good news. The other side of Solak's spring is an increase in strikeouts. The Rangers' planned starter at second base, who struck out at an 18 percent clip in 2020, has whiffed 11 times in 26 Cactus League at-bats.
