Jhonatan Solano went 2-for-4 with a homer and a steal Wednesday against the Giants.
It looks like Solano is going to force us to learn how to spell his first name correctly. He's played in just nine games since being called up on May 28 to back up Jesus Flores, but he's hit .393 with two homers and six RBI in his limited action.

Nationals purchased the contract of C Jhonatan Solano from Triple-A Syracuse.
Solano, 26, batted .275/.325/.388 with five homers, 33 RBI and a .719 OPS over 279 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level. He is known as a solid defender, so one wonders if the Nationals kept him with the idea of developing him as a backup catcher and dealing from their surplus of Jesus Flores and Derek Norris.
