Reds' Nick Solak: Traded to Cincinnati
Solak (foot) was acquired by the Reds from the Rangers on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations.
Solak appeared in only 35 games for the Rangers in 2022 before he suffered a fractured right foot in September. He has a .246/.317/.354 slash line in 749 plate appearances across the past three seasons and should compete for a utility role with Cincinnati during spring training.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Shifts to 60-day IL
Solak (foot) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
The 27-year-old will miss the rest of the season after he suffered a fractured right foot last week, and the Rangers have moved him to the 60-day IL to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Kevin Plawecki, who signed with Texas on Wednesday. Solak played in 35 big-league games this year and finished with a .207/.309/.329 slash line, three home runs and three stolen bases.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Done for season
Solak is done for the season due to a right foot fracture, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
A roster move will come Tuesday. Solak, 27, has been at least 10 percent worse than a league-average hitter in each of the last three seasons, which is a problem given that he is supposed to be a bat-first player. He will look to stick with the Rangers organization as a bench piece, but it would not be surprising if he were traded or cast off the 40-man roster this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: In walking boot
Solak remains in a walking boot after getting hit in the foot by a pitch Wednesday against Oakland, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The Rangers reportedly aren't yet sure if Solak's foot is broken. If it is, his season would be over. His absence isn't a big loss for the Rangers, however, as he's started just once since returning to the big leagues at the beginning of September.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Makes first start since callup
Solak started at designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to Houston.
Solak was added to the roster as part of the September roster expansion last week but hadn't appeared in a game until Wednesday. He's been given chances to stick with the major-league roster the last few seasons, including 127 games in 2021, but it appears Solak's window is closing. The Rangers are looking at prospects younger than the 27-year-old Solak, who could latch on as a utility player in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Added to active roster
Solak was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday.
Solak was sent to Round Rock in early August, and he slashed .260/.365/.521 with five home runs, four doubles, 16 RBI, 15 runs and two stolen bases over 18 minor-league games following his demotion. Since active rosters expanded to 28 players Thursday, Solak will rejoin the big-league club to provide additional depth.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Sent to Triple-A
Solak was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.
Solak was called up by Texas in mid-July and went 2-for-10 with a solo home run and a walk in seven games. The 27-year-old has a .208/.299/.338 slash line in 88 plate appearances this year. Brad Miller (neck) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Launches pinch-hit HR
Solak went 1-for-1 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to the Orioles.
Solak entered as a pinch hitter and finished off the scoring with a ninth-inning blast, his third homer of the season -- he has 11 in the minors. The right-hitting utility player has been used sparingly since being called up at the All-Star break, making a couple of starts against lefties and also serving as a pinch hitter. In both of his starts, Solak has been replaced for a pinch hitter.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Starting at DH
Solak is starting at designated hitter and batting eighth Wednesday versus the Mariners.
Solak will start for the first time since being recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on July 17. The 27-year-old has fallen out of favor with the Rangers in 2022, producing a .200 average with two homers, three RBI and 11 runs over 70 at-bats in 28 games.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Nick Solak: Summoned from minors
The Rangers recalled Solak from Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.
Solak isn't included in the lineup for Sunday's series finale with the Mariners and will likely function as a short-side platoon option off the bench while he's up with Texas. In 75 plate appearances for the Rangers this season, Solak has slashed .209/.293/.313 with a 22.7 percent strikeout rate.... See More ... See Less
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....
