Pete Fairbanks impressed in his MLB debut on Sunday
Solak, 24, has been assigned to Triple-A Nashville and wasn’t added to the 40-man roster. He bats right and is batting .266 with 17 home runs and 47 RBIs in 85 games for Triple-A Durham. He hit 19 homers in Double-A in 2018. He has played 75 games in the outfield in the minors, in addition to 303 at second base. His career minor league slash line is .290/.382/.453/.835 in 405 games. He has yet to make his MLB debut.
Fairbanks was 0-2 with a 9.35 ERA in eight relief appearances for the Rangers. Texas drafted him in the ninth round in 2015 out of the University of Missouri-Columbia. His departure leaves a spot open on Texas’ 40-man roster.
