Solano has been sidelined with a lower-back injury, The Westchester Journal News reports.
Solano hasn't been able to partake in any baseball drills, and while there's no exact timetable as of now, he expressed optimism that he'd return to the field before the end of spring training. The infielder likely wouldn't have cracked the Opening Day big league roster anyway, but if he misses extended time he'll most likely begin the year at the Triple-A level.

Solano received an invitation to spring training Friday, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports.
This comes as no surprise, as Solano has appeared in the majors in parts of the last four seasons. That being said, his hitting numbers have tapered off since his debut in the bigs, so he'll likely head back to the minors after spring training if he can't get his bat going against major league pitching.

Solano will receive a chance to polish his brutal 2015 stat line, currently standing at .156/.194/.219 in 67 plate appearances. He will likely occupy his usual utility infielder role, with some pinch hitting also in the cards now that rosters have expanded and benches have deepened.
