Nationals activate Casey Janssen, place Sammy Solis on DL


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) The Nationals activated pitcher Casey Janssen from the 15-day disabled list, per Nationals.com

Janssen has been out all season with shoulder inflammation. He made six minor league rehab appearances in Class A and Double-A. 

The team also placed LHP Sammy Solis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 18. Solis is suffering from shoulder inflammation. He is 1-0 with a 5.00 ERA this season. 


Rookie reliever Sammy Solis earns first-career win Sunday for Nats


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/10/2015) Rookie pitcher Sammy Solis (1-0) pitched a scoreless eighth inning Sunday and earned the win in relief, the first for his career, for the Nationals against the Braves.

"This guy, impress me a lot," catcher Wilson Ramos said, per the Washington Post. "He’s one of the guys being here doing his job really good. To me, that guy will help the team a lot. He look like he got a lot of experience in the big leagues. He’s doing a really good job, so I’m very happy for him."

Solis has now thrown six innings of relief this season, allowing no runs and three hits.

"He’s fearless," closer Drew Storen said. "He really doesn’t care, which is a good thing. He goes in there and sticks to his game plan. He’s fitting in well. There’s no deer in the headlights look from him every time the phone rings. He’s ready to go out there and battle."


Nationals P Sammy Solis delivers three shutout innings Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/6/2015) Nationals pitcher Sammy Solis had his best performance of the season on Tuesday against the Marlins. Granted, he's only made two appearances on the season after being recalled in late-April. But there's no denying how effective the young left-hander was on Tuesday.

After starter Stephen Strasburg was forced to leave the game due to a shoulder injury, Solis came in and fired three shutout innings, allowing just one hit and struck out a batter. 

"The good thing about Sammy is that he is a former starter and he understands how to pace himself," manager Matt Williams said after the game, per MLB.com. "He threw the ball really well. He kept us in the game and allowed us to have chances to win it."

Solis had been pitching well in Double-A before his promotion to the big club, throwing four innings and allowing one hit (a solo home run). 


Nationals' Sammy Solis on debut: The jitters left after the first pitch


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Nationals pitcher Sammy Solis made his big-league debut Thursday night against the Nationals, allowing one hit and striking out over two shutout frames against the Mets. The 26-year-old was promoted from Triple-A Syracuse prior to the game, and revealed he had a few butterflies in his stomach before his debut.

"After the first pitch, you get the jitters out and you dream of that moment your whole life," Solis said, per MLB.com. "Once that's done, it's baseball and pitching. I know how to do that."

Solis was taken in the second round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft, and was originally viewed as a starting pitcher. But after Tommy John surgery and several injury-prone seasons, the southpaw wound up in the bullpen.

"It's different, I'll tell you that. It's a different mindset," Solis said. "Instead of worrying about six or seven innings, you are worrying about one or two. So making that adjustment has been different. I wouldn't say it has been hard, it's just been different. I'm asking questions all the time; I'm trying to learn as much as I can. I'm getting the hang of it. It's going to progress, I think. But for now, I think it's going well."


Nationals recall Michael Taylor, Sammy Solis, option A.J. Cole


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) The Nationals have recalled pitcher Sammy Solis and outfielder Michael Taylor while optioning pitcher A.J. Cole back to Triple-A, the team announced. 

In addition, Washington placed outfielder Reed Johnson on the 15-day DL with a calf strain. Cole started Tuesday's game against the Braves and was rocked for nine runs in two innings of work. Taylor was sent to Triple-A roughly two weeks ago and was hitting .271 to start the year. Solis has appeared in three games this season in the minors with an 0-0 record and a 2.25 ERA.


Nats send Brian Goodwin to Triple-A, Sammy Solis to Double-A


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) The Nationals have optioned outfielder Brian Goodwin to Triple-A Syracuse and left-hander Sammy Solis to Double-A Harrisburg on Monday, according to MASN Sports.

Nationals hoping prospect Sammy Solis can stay healthy in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) The Nationals are hoping starting pitcher prospect Sammy Solis will pitch a full season in 2015, per MASNsports.com.

Solis, who was a second-round pick in 2010, has had his fair share of health-related issues the last few seasons. He missed the 2012 season due to Tommy John surgery, and then was limited to five starts last season due to more elbow problems.

"We are looking forward to seeing Sammy in the spring and (have him) get hands-on (attention)," Nationals director of player development Mark Scialabba said. "Hopefully, this is a year where he can stay healthy and help us. Because he certainly has the talent to help us at the major level. It's just a matter of being able to stay on the field. We have a positive outlook on Sammy."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Sammy Solis tosses two scoreless innings in return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) Nationals pitcher Sammy Solis took to the mound Sunday against the Tigers for the first time since March 2. He had been sidelined due to back spasms.

The time off seemed to benefit Solis, who tossed two scoreless innings in relief of Jordan Zimmermann. He allowed one walk and no hits, while recording no strikeouts. Solis has tossed four scoreless innings this spring.

(3/12/2014) Nationals pitcher Sammy Solis hasn't appeared in a spring game recently because he's been sidelined with back spasms, per MASNsports.com. Solis has made just one appearance this spring, tossing two scoreless relief innings.

Sammy Solis willing to pitch in relief


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo floated the idea earlier in the offseason about bringing starting pitcher prospect Sammy Solis to the majors as a reliever, so he could get a taste of life in the big leagues and help provide left-handed bullpen depth for the club.

It seems Solis is fine with whatever the team has in store, according to The Washington Post.

"I’m willing to be shortstop if I have to," Solis said. "Honestly, I think I’m finally ready to make an impact with the team. I’m just working hard, keeping my head down and letting the front office make all the decisions … It’s up to the team. I’m a starting pitcher, but I’ll relieve, catch, whatever."

Solis hasn't been in a relief role since he was a freshman at the University of of San Diego. However, he made an impressive return from Tommy John surgery in 2013, going 2-1 with a 3.32 ERA in 14 appearances (13 starts). Solis then pitched extremely well in the prospect-laden Arizona Fall League, going 5-2 with a 2.17 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 29 innings in seven starts.

"The breaking ball for me was the hardest thing to find after surgery, especially out in the fall league it really came around and I was able to develop it and it was my most effective pitch," he said. "I’m excited to see how it turns out this year. As of now, I feel ready to go, 100 percent."


Sammy Solis likely not far away


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/5/2013) 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.


Nationals add three to 40-man roster


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) The Nationals added outfielder Michael Taylor and pitchers Sammy Solis and Aaron Barrett to the 40-man roster Wednesday.

Taylor went 1 for 23 with the A's last season while also hitting .281/.360/.474 with 18 home runs and 85 RBI in 420 at-bats with Triple-A Sacramento. Solis went 2-1 with a 3.43 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 40:19 K:BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings with high Class A Potomac. Barrett went 1-1 with a 2.15 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 69:15 K:BB ratio in 50 1/3 innings over 51 appearances with Double-A Harrisburg.

Sammy Solis happy with post-surgery performance


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2013) 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."

Sammy Solis on track for mid-May return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2013) Nationals starting pitcher prospect Sammy Solis, who continues to recover from having Tommy John surgery last season, is on track to return to minor-league action in mid-May, according to MASNsports.com.

Solis happy with recovery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2013) MASNsports.com reports Nationals prospect Sammy Solis is in good spirits as he continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery, which kept him out last season. "Great man, I feel great," Solis said. "Stronger than ever, actually. It's almost as if (the torn UCL) didn't happen." Solis has been long tossing and hopes to throw off a mound shortly. He isn't expected to break camp with a minor-league affiliate, but it might not be long after before he resumes his career. "I play catch with a changeup right now. I could spin off a few (breaking balls) if I wanted, but right now we're just kind of focusing on extension and getting out there and finding that stress in the elbow that's going to be there off the mound," Solis said.
