|Profile: Solis is a big ol' 6'5'' southpaw. While he's tough on fellow left-handers, he hasn't demonstrated much of a platoon split. It's easy to see why. Most LOOGYs throw a fastball and a slider. Solis' breaking ball is a curve, and it was one of the top performing curve balls. He also throws an above-average changeup to right-handed hitters. The three-pitch combination keeps righties off balance while punishing lefties. As a result, Solis is a full-inning reliever. Every once and awhile, he'll struggle to find his command. His worst such game was on July 7th when he allowed two hits and three walks in one-third of an inning. Typically, he's a reliable setup-quality reliever. (Brad Johnson)|
The Quick Opinion: Solis is a large, full-inning left-handed reliever. With a plus curve ball, the Nationals can bring him in for those tough left-handed hitters then leave him out there for the tough righties too.
