2020 MLB Draft Guide Player Profile: Nick Solak
Colby Conway takes a closer look at Texas Rangers utility-man Nick Solak and lets fantasy baseball owners know what to expect during the 2020 MLB season.
Nick Solak was looking like he had a path to more regular playing time, but it now appears that the likelihood of that scenario might be dissipating. I was all aboard getting numerous shares of Solak, because not only was he going to get regular playing time and become a multi-positional asset in fantasy, but he had a rather intriguing skill set. It appears that the team is ready to use Danny Santana as the team’s regular center fielder, although, the silver lining of it all is that the team’s manager is comfortable with Solak in center field. So, a few weeks ago, I was confident Solak would be a regular player for the Rangers, but now it appears that he’s destined for a super utility role to begin the year, barring any injuries before the season. Cue the violins. Sad, sad day.
[Editor’s Note: With the recent injury to Willie Calhoun , it would appear the path to regular playing time has opened again for Solak. He is likely to play left field to begin the season.]
