|Sammy Solis likely not far away |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/5/13) Nationals pitching prospect Sammy Solis, whose 2013 season was mainly spent recovering from Tommy John surgery, had a strong showing in the Arizona Fall League, going 5-2 with a 2.12 ERA and 29 strikeouts to seven walks in 29 innings. The performance led general manager Mike Rizzo to believe the 25-year-old is close to breaking into the majors.
"I just think he needs to log innings," Rizzo told MASNSports.com. "He is a guy that his progression was cut short by the Tommy John injury and surgery. But when he is performing and he was healthy ... he pitched extremely well. He is a stuff left-hander that we think his stuff can play in the big leagues in the short term. He gives us some depth in the rotation and a guy that we feel that can help us in the major leagues very soon."
Solis, who Baseball America rates as the No. 5 prospect in the Nationals organization with Robbie Ray now with Detroit, had a 3.32 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 6.5 strikeouts per nine innings in 14 appearances, including 13 starts, in the lower levels of the minors last year.

|Sammy Solis happy with post-surgery performance |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/3/13) Nationals starting pitcher prospect Sammy Solis has been encouraged with his performance since making his season debut for Class A Potomac May 21. Solis, who missed last season recovering from Tommy John surgery, has posted a 2.45 ERA in three starts and tossed a season-high five innings Saturday.
Solis said he feels stronger than before and his velocity has returned to his pre-surgery level.
"The feel has been the biggest thing," Solis told The Washington Post. "Changeup and curveball, especially. In the fifth inning [on Saturday] it came around and started throwing it for strikes. It really is a weapon when you can do that. When you can’t, it’s a lot harder to pitch. In the fifth inning I felt a lot more comfortable than I did in the first."
