According to the New York’s PR Department, infielder Donovan Solano has been outrighted to Triple-A.
The five-year veteran, who had spent four years in the Miami Marlins organization, went 5-for-22 (.227) with a home run in just nine games in New York this season.
Solano did, however, play in 131 games in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre where he slashed .319/.349/.436 with seven homers while playing second, third, and short.
