Solano was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Saturday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The Marlins brought Solano up earlier in the week for some insurance behind the plate with J.T. Realmuto nursing some back pain, but Realmuto returned Friday and rendered Solano expendable. Justin Nicolino was summoned to replace Solano, who has gone 1-for-20 with the big club this season.

Solano's contract was selected from Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday.

Solano will replace Martin Prado on the Marlins' 25-man roster, but not in the field. He hit just .050/.095/.100 over 20 at-bats in seven games with the Marlins earlier in the season, so even if he sees a couple starts, he's not a big threat offensively.

Solano was designated for assignment Friday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

Now that Jeff Mathis (finger) is back from the disabled list, Solano is left as the third catcher in the organization, assuming he clears waivers. With just one hit in 20 at-bats this season, Solano probably won't draw much interest.

Solano was called up from Triple-A New Orleans on Friday.

The catcher will join the Marlins to take the place of Jared Saltalamacchia, who was placed on the paternity list. Solano, who signed with the Marlins as a camp invitee back in December, has not appeared in a major league game since 2013, when he saw action in 24 contests for the Nationals. He was hitting just .185 with three RBI in 27 Triple-A at-bats (seven games).

Solano signed a minor league contract with the Marlins on Monday that includes an invite to spring training, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Solano did manage a career-high 10 homers in 93 games with Triple-A Syracuse last season, but he hit just .251/.305/.388 for the year, raising his overall batting line at the Triple-A level to .243/.289/.346. He'll get to spend spring training with his brother, Donovan, but Solano will face a difficult battle to earn a roster spot, with Austin Barnes, J.T. Realmuto and Jeff Mathis all ahead of him on the depth chart.

Solano was released by the Nationals on Tuesday, William Ladson of MLB.com reports.

With Solano out of options entering his age-29 season and not considered a fit for the organization, the Nationals went ahead and cut ties with the backstop. He spent the entire 2014 season at Triple-A Syracuse, posting an underwhelming .251/.305/.388 batting line in 39 games. Solano did have a career-high 10 homers, however, and may receive a spring training invite from another club.
