Cincinnati Reds Place Former Top Prospect On Waivers

After sending cash to the Texas Rangers last November for Nick Solak, the Cincinnati Reds have now placed him on waivers.

The Reds have designated Nick Solak for assignment.

The 28-year-old former top prospect has not been able to live up to the hype in the majors since his rookie season in 2019 when he slashed .293/.393/.491, with five home runs, 17 RBIs, two stolen bases and 19 runs scored across his first 33 games. 

Since his rookie season, Solak has managed an underwhelming .246/.317/.354 triple-slash line, 16 home runs, 76 RBIs, 17 stolen bases, and 98 runs scored over 220 games and three seasons.

Solak is still an intriguing option for teams, with his ability to play multiple positions and former prospect status.

He's a former second-round pick by the New York Yankees in the 2016 MLB Draft.
