Solano declined his assignment and elected free agency Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Solano had been outrighted off the major league roster to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre earlier in the day, but he'll elect to try his luck on the open market rather than head back to the minors. The 28-year-old hit .227 in nine major league games this year and just .189 in 2015, so he may end up back in the minors wherever he lands.

Solano was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Solano spent the majority of the season in the minors, but did get a September call up and saw somewhat regular at bats down the stretch with injuries to players ahead of him on the depth chart. The 28-year-old has been up and down between the majors and minors over the past two years and has mostly been used as a utility infield option, so he figures to reprise a similar role heading into 2017.

Solano went 3-for-5 with a homer, two runs, and two RBI in the Yankees' 14-4 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

It was Solano's third game and his first home run of the year, as he joined Gary Sanchez and the rest of a Yankees lineup that put up 17 hits on the Rays. Solano spent parts of four seasons with the Marlins before heading to New York, and never hit more than three home runs despite garnering 300+ at-bats twice.

Solano's contract was selected from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre

EDGE Analysis

Solano had a good performance with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, where he hit .319/.349/.436 over 131 games. Solano will provide depth all around the infield for the Yankees, as he's spent time at second and third base, as well as shortstop over the course of his career in the majors.

Solano went 0-for-4 in his first game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Solano was dealing with a lower-back injury in the spring, but now that the regular season is underway it appears as though it's behind him. He'll serve as organizational depth in the infield, likely spending the majority of the season in the minors.

Solano was reassigned to minor league camp Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He was a long shot to make the roster to begin with, but a lower-back injury squashed any chance Solano had this spring. Solano played in 361 games with Miami from 2012-2015.

Solano has been sidelined with a lower-back injury, The Westchester Journal News reports.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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 signed a minor league contract with the Yankees on Friday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

EDGE Analysis

After two relatively successful campaigns with the Marlins, Solano struggled offensively in 2015, and his run with the team has now come to an end. The 28-year-old will now provide depth in the Yankees' system.

Solano was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The move was procedural in order to open up a spot on the 40-man roster. No matter, Solano spent time between New Orleans and the Marlins in 2015, garnering just 90 at-bats in 55 games with the big club.
